What is Scandinavian Design?

Minimalist styles are on trend. A really affordable and great looking trend you can jump onto is Scandinavian Design, also known as Scandi. A Scandi design consists of white walls, wooden floors and pieces, minimalist décor and modern furniture.

Scandinavian design originates from Nordic influences. The name refers to three European countries (Norway, Sweden and Denmark) but also incorporates Finland, Iceland and Greenland into designs. 

In designing your room, you want to start off with the main two elements that give the room the ‘Scandi’ vibe. These are the wooden floors and white walls. This design favours lighter wooden tones, so try going for flooring such as our Furlong Sherwood. With having a light floor and white walls, it helps brighten the room, which in turn can make it look larger.

To accessorise the room, you want to forgo the rugs and the clutter – The key to a true Scandi room is minimalism, and that every piece has its purpose. Try going for wooden accessories such as coffee tables in the same shade of wood as your floor, or slightly darker for some contrast. Go with black frames for photographs, and plants to add a dash of colour into the room.

Scandi designs thrive in bright, airy spaces so if your room has a great natural light source, you are in luck! If your light source isn’t great, try placing a mirror opposite your window to help maximise the light.

Good luck putting together your Scandi-inspired dream home from the ScS range!
