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.
Monochromatic Color Scheme
Monochromatic color scheme dominates the interior of this Scandinavian style apartment. The frames of the expansive glass panel doors are painted in matte black color. This serves to accentuate the monochromatic décor theme. A couple of interesting light fixtures adds a dramatic touch to the home.
Sufficiently Spaced Furniture
There is quite a bit of furniture in this home. Fortunately, it is well-spaced to ensure every piece has sufficient breathing room.
In fact, negative space has some great benefits. For instance, it allows your eye to rest so the space looks exciting and not chaotic.
Other features of the apartment that are eye-catching and serve to enrich the Scandinavian style include a beautiful area rug in the living room and contemporary fittings. A few plants around the home add some touch of nature.
