Work on a simple yet stylish look
Many Scandinavian-inspired spaces feature plants as part of the décor to brighten up dull corners.
Take your cue from the photo above—stick to sophisticated fixtures like showerheads and faucets in matte black and tiles in gray. Complete the look by incorporating wooden shelves, woven baskets for storage, and indoor plants.
Update the look with chic patterns
Though Scandinavian design is known for its clean and minimalist aesthetic, you can play around with how you interpret it by incorporating patterns into the final look. This beautiful bathroom brings together a couple of elements we can’t help but notice—neutrals, wooden touches, cohesive décor, and patterns seen on the walls and flooring.
The tiles on the wall follow a herringbone pattern while alternating cement tiles on the floor keep within the simple yet stylish theme.
