What is Scandinavian Interior Design Style?

Known for its concept of “hygge”, which is a Danish and Norwegian word for a state of coziness, Scandinavian interior design is a design movement that emerged as a response to interest in modernism and functionalism. The style emphasizes craftsmanship and use of natural materials.

Is Scandinavian Interior Design the right style for you?

Take functionality to the next level with a Scandinavian interior design for your space. If you’d like to really bring the outdoors in, but settle on an earthy, bright, sunlit tone, then this style is perfect for you. Picture being in a light, airy living room, on a cozy sofa with some plush throw pillows while looking out big windows at the beautiful scenery of nature and you’ll know this is the right design.

The palette is a defining trait for this style, drawing mostly from earth tones. You’ll see a lot of browns which are very easy on the eyes. Those colors will come from natural materials, such as wood, which will compose most of your furniture. Comfort pieces will have woven materials, and the overall look will feel warm and inviting. Accessories will be more for specific functions, removing much clutter from the space, to give it an airy feel. To complete the look, opt for large windows that give a great view of the outdoors when possible.
