Renowned for their simplicity, utility, and beauty, Scandinavian homes have a pure, pared backed style that is centred around warm functionality, clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance. The use of light is considered to be extremely important, and many Scandinavian homes are characterized by the use of earthy muted tones, honest materials and minimal ornamentation.
The calm, muted tones of cool grey, white and cream are seen everywhere in Scandinavian interiors and designs are kept simple and usually stylise the natural environment. Scandinavian design is often equated with being modern and stark, but such an assertion is commonly just a stereotype. Despite their symmetry and clarity, Scandinavian designs always radiate warmth and a distinct and homely cosiness. The key to true Scandinavian design is making a room just as functional as it is inviting. The modernised interpretation of this interior style has seen the introduction of trending geometric form, black and white photography, typographic artwork and dip painted furniture.
