What is Scandinavian Style & Characteristics?
Scandinavian with simple beauty and utility has a style that is pure, centered on warm functionality, understated elegance, and clean lines. Muted earthy tones, minimal ornamentation, and natural materials all bring the Scandinavian style to any home or business’s décor. Below you will find the basics that bring Scandinavian Decorating together.
1) Accessories: Clutter is not only avoided but in Scandinavian Interior Design would be an abomination. Accessories are kept to a minimum and serve a function, like a wall clock for example.
2) Paint Colors: White walls are frequently used in conjunction with cool gray and cool blue textiles to give off the right ambiance of the Scandinavian style.
3) Eco-friendly Aspects: Everything within the home or business is eco-friendly, triple-glazing, appropriate insulation for roofs and walls, appliances, and so on all bring the practical function but eco-friendly use.
4) Floors: Light wood floors throughout the building is typically found in Scandinavian styles; as wall to wall carpeting was never accepted and used little if at all.
5) Form: Clean lines are extremely prominent in Scandinavian Decor from the furniture to the architecture and everywhere in between.
6) Function: A true Scandinavian style is livable in every function and serves a purpose.
7) Furniture: Incredible pieces of furniture stem from Scandinavian origins and though simple and clean lines are a part of the style, there are many beautiful and charming pieces.
8) Materials: Wood is the material used in Scandinavian style above all else, but natural materials are ideal. Adding the wooden surfaces to the ceilings and walls not only create texture and warmth but adding the grey oil to neutralize the yellow or utilizing pine or oak accentuates the charm.
Other Considerations: If you are constructing a home or even a business, a few things to consider for Scandinavian styles include fireplaces and beautiful outside-inside room additions are incredible.
9) Corner fireplace: Considering that the winters in the Scandinavian kingdoms are harsh, the fireplaces are out of the way in the corners, not only does the function serve its purpose, but the added charm is refined and elegant.
10) Add an outside/inside room: Connecting the outdoors to the structure is frequent in Scandinavian designs; balconies, terraces are even included in on apartments in classic Scandinavian architect. Hosting BBQs and late night events on a partially built up deck for example, extends the Scandinavian style outside.
