5 Must-Read Tips For Styling A Scandinavian-Inspired Space
It's more than just crisp lines and all-white decor pieces
Functional, simple yet stunning, and bright—it's not a surprise that Scandinavian-inspired homes have been popping up everywhere. Originating from Nordic Europe, maximum style with minimum effort is what it's all about. To help you achieve the same understated elegance in your space, we've put together a few design tips and tricks you can include in your existing decor:
1. Don’t be afraid to go for an all-white palette.
From the walls to the floors, Scandi spaces are usually covered in non-hues. Aside from lending a no-fuss and sophisticated feel to the room, it serves as a great base to help natural elements such as wood and steel pop.
2. Feel free to experiment with color.
While black and white details are predominant in Scandinavian interiors, you don’t have to stick to a monochromatic look. Color can be a part of your space through décor. To do this, consider adding interesting knickknacks or wall art in vibrant shades to double as conversation pieces.

3. Take a step back with the accessories.
Since it’s all about clean silhouettes and streamlined décor, shy away from big and bulky Victorian-inspired furniture, printed throws, and anything that would make the space look cramped and cluttered.

4. It’s all about texture and warm details.
Complete the tranquil vibe of Scandi-style rooms with items that highlight texture. Neutral-colored fur throws over the couch or thick rugs can give the illusion of a cozy space.
5. Invest in hardwood floors.
Wall to wall carpets never took off as a characteristic of Scandinavian design. However, hardwood floors in light washes are a staple in Scandi homes except for the bathrooms ang cooking corners.
