How to decorate your home in the Scandinavian style?

scandinavian style

Living room

The identity of Scandinavia is very clearly visible precisely in the design chosen by young Scandinavians. They are very sensitive to the traditions of their country and to comfort, prefer naturalness to artificial chic, and they do not need to be designers at all to decorate the interior of their home beautifully and functionally.

The living room of the house is well lit, the centerpiece is a large, comfortable sofa. The corners of the furniture are smooth rather than sharp. The room has a large window. It occupies at least 45% of the wall area. A wine cellar bookcase is used as a decor for the room. All furniture is very simple, no frills. Although in the case of the Scandinavians, the classics (in our understanding) might also seem like an overkill.

Dining room

The dining room in the house is small, well lit, with a minimum of furniture and decor. The table is deliberately rough and careless, like a table in a university lecture hall. But this is only at first glance. In fact, it is most likely made of excellent wood and high strength steel.

The chairs somewhat smooth out the external roughness of the table with smooth lines and a delicate creamy white color.

Scandinavian cuisine

The kitchen in the house is really wonderful, every housewife’s dream. Everything is so thought out that it seems that it could not be better. Please note that the kitchen is separated from the living room by a partially rebuilt wall, but it has a lot of functional space. All surfaces are work surfaces, and cabinets and shelves will surely hold a lot of household items.


The Scandinavian style of design is based on the naturalness of materials and the simplicity of the execution of the conceived. The interior most often uses good, high-quality wood, natural stones (when it comes to decor), glass, cotton, not bleached linen, natural fur (influenced by the hunting Middle Ages, the country’s traditions), leather, ceramics, metal.

Scandinavian furniture is practical and functional. Note the bed in the bedroom. It is wide, low and with a small mattress. There is nothing superfluous in the bedroom at all, a maximum of free space. The room is designed in light colors. Bed linen is made of good textiles. The picture is complemented by several pictures in beautiful frames, placed right on the floor, and a bedside table in a minimalist (almost Japanese) style. In such a bedroom, it is clearly easy and free to breathe and think.
