4 Ways to Combine Scandinavian and Bohemian Styles
Achieve just the right balance of sleek lines and bold colors with these tips
Avid readers and followers of Real Living are all too familiar with the different styles seen in homes nowadays. Some are fans of the Scandinavian design—with its simplicity and functionality highlighted by clean lines and light color palettes. Of course, there are those who are more into colors and prints—channeling a Bohemian vibe that's carefree and laid-back.
But what if you choose to combine these two looks? Marrying these two might be challenging but with the right pegs and hints, it can result in an exceptional space that's full of character and life. Let the tips and photos below guide and inspire you:
1. Achieve balance by pairing brightly colored textiles with Scandinavian-inspired furniture. The colors complement the sleek lines—making the room more lively and inviting.
2. The inviting Boho vibe coming from the low bed and printed rug mixes well with the no-nonsense walls and table from the Scandi style—creating a room that's neither too bare nor too over-the-top.
3. Both styles feature plants displayed in creative ways. Incorporate these greens into your home by having indoor plants that can help keep the space clean or through delightful prints in furnishings.
4. Those who are in favor of the minimalist Scandi style may not have too much use for excessive accessorizing, but the right mix-and-match can give you a well-thought-out space that's comforting and welcoming. As seen in the photo above, soft furnishings can soften up the stiffness of wooden furniture. If you also have wooden furniture at home, temper it with cushions and throws to make it extra cozy.
