It’s very easy to recognize a Scandinavian interior design. But there isn’t just one Scandinavian style but several and they all have certain elements in common. For example, all Scandinavian interiors have wooden floors, most often light and they can be seen in all the rooms apart from the bathroom.
The color palette in Scandinavian decors is very light and simple and it usually includes shades of gray and blue as well as a lot of white. Sometimes bold touches of color can be seen here and there.
In general, all Scandinavian interiors feature clean lines throughout and this includes the architecture, the furniture and everything else. All such spaces are also always very functional. In terms of material, there’s always a lot of wood in the décor. It’s used on the walls, on the ceilings, on the floors and on the furniture. The wood adds warmth and texture to the room.
One of the things you often expect to see in a Scandinavian home is one of those traditional fireplaces placed in the corner of a room. The fireplace is not the focal point of the décor in the room and they have simple designs and shapes. In fact, Scandinavian decors are minimalist throughout and they usually lack accessories and purely decorative details.
