Scandinavian Decor for Your Home

Scandinavian style is often categorized by its functional, minimalistic, and simple design. But it can be hard to know where to start, especially if you’re looking to incorporate Scandinavian accents into certain spaces. Create a beautiful home inspired by Scandinavian home design by making some simple changes to your decor.

Simplistic Decorations

Scandinavian culture as a whole is known for its simple design. So if you’re decorating a space, carefully plan out the decor and pieces of furniture that will make the space functional while also leaving you with a simple design. Instead of bulkier pieces of furniture or lining shelves with bric a brac, find pieces of decor that really define you and what you want that space to be.

Neutral Colors

To help achieve the minimal and simplistic look of Scandinavian design, they incorporate a lot of neutral colors. This includes shades of whites, blacks, greys, and browns. These neutral colors help soothe and mellow the palette of your home. A neutral color scheme also makes it easier to add a pop of color and help your decorative pieces stand out.

Warm Textiles

This idea of warmth also builds off the neutrals color scheme. When you add warm textiles— like large stuffed pillows, bulky blankets, and sheepskins — you create a cozy space that’s great during the colder months. These warm textiles also compliment your neutral color palette.

Wood + Metal

Part of what gives Scandinavian homes that modern look is their use of wood and metal accents. From kitchen tables to side tables and other pieces of furniture, the combination of wood and metal makes your space look sleek, clean, and modern.

Large Plants

It might feel like Scandinavian decor doesn’t use a lot of color. But incorporating large plants — real or fake — can help provide your space with a pop of color and give your home a natural, earthy aesthetic. The look of greenery also balances nicely with wood and metal furniture and accents.
