Yes, it’s 2018, and we’re still discussing Scandinavian style. Even if you don’t like to follow trends, and haven’t given this one a chance, you still have time – it’s not going anywhere! One of the reasons for this has to do with the style’s primary purpose which is to bring comfort to the abode, and a laid-back lifestyle to the owners.
Having this in mind, who wouldn’t want to have a comfortable interior décor, right? The second one is the ease of decorating, having the freedom to incorporate elements with earthy tones, and natural materials due to the Scandinavian contemporary basis.
For instance, the addition of a contemporary table, be it in the living room, dining room, or hallway, made of sustainable hardwood, featuring clean lines, and lack of ornamentation in the light and airy design, invites the addition of more natural furniture pieces and fabrics, simple, yet sophisticated, to create a warm interior.
A contemporary table, as one of the essential pieces in a room’s decoration, used for hosting meals, coffee, hiding books, and magazines, paired with the natural chairs, organic cloths, and contemporary lamps or candles, instantly set a relaxing tone to the interior.
Of course, as we’re talking about Scandinavian style, you shouldn’t expect this makeover to be costly – after all, it’s about affordable and simple luxury. You can take it a step further by incorporating more soft, neutral colours, be it in the form of wall paint, rugs, curtains, decoration pieces, but avoid going overboard by using bright colours to add some contrast.
In addition, make sure you get rid of all the unnecessary bits and pieces, following the “less is more” minimalist philosophy. This way you’d get a spacious interior, even if it’s not really so (you can fool the eye), it’s the outcome of going clutter-free. As you can guess, every part that Scandinavian style consists of is meant to increase the quality of life.
Don’t be surprised if after you start with this interior décor project, you notice a shift towards simplification in your habits, and opting for more of the eco-friendly alternatives. The Scandinavian based interior inspires people to appreciate nature, and tranquility, something we could all do with especially in the fast-paced world of today.
Taking all of this into consideration, it’s not so difficult to see why this style is as trendy as ever, and why the number of people getting in love with it keeps on increasing.
