5 Decor Themes That Explore The Breadth Of The Scandinavian Style

2 views

The Scandinavian interior design style is one that is favoured by millions, not only because of the popularity of IKEA, but for its contemporary form and simple functionality. The Scandi aesthetic has a mid-century modern appeal and fits cleanly with the minimalist movement. It is flexible enough to splice with other themes too, and suits an array of colour schemes–not only the white, grey and wood palette (although this is a classic we still love!) Let us take a look at five different themes within the Scandinavian style, including muted rustic Scandinavian elegance, cheerful pastel play, one deliciously dark home, a botanical burst, and one for the trendy traditionalist.
