Chic and Cozy Scandinavian Style Apartment

Chic and Cozy Scandinavian Style Apartment

If you love minimalism and white interiors, then Scandinavian style home design would be a great choice for you.

Scandinavian style derives its name from the northern countries such as Norway and Sweden. These countries are characterized by prolonged, dark winter, premature evening, and minimal natural light during the day.

In that light, dark is largely shunned while minimalism and whiteness are embraced in Scandinavian homes. This is normally coupled with random accents of natural colors, such as brown and black.

That said, let’s take a tour of this chic and cozy Scandinavian Style apartment to learn more about this popular style.

The Interior at A Glance

Typical of Scandinavian interiors, this apartment features large windows designed to capture plenty of daylight. There’s considerable use of wood to help defuse the whiteness.

The open space and minimalist approach to décor create a calming ambiance. The interior boasts an impressive modern charm.

Tranquil, Tech-free Bedrooms

Sometimes you can be overwhelmed by all the technology, including social media, which surround us. In such occasions, it would be a great relief to have a personal sanctuary in which to switch off. You would want a highly-personal space that is cozy and inviting without the distractions of devices such as phones and television.

Scandinavian style bedrooms are often designed to offer just that. In this apartment, the bedrooms are device-free. They comprise a palette of soothing greys and milky whites, which blend in well with natural textures such as comfy sheepskins and soft linen.
