The basic principles for Scandinavian design are subtle and simplicity. The main focus will be on organic materials and functional design. If you prefer a clean and open concept, then Scandinavian design will be ideal for you.
Scandinavian design focus on the light and neutral color combination for the interior walls and ceiling, with darker neutral colors (brown, grey, beige) for furnishing to achieve a contrast against the internal structure.
Scandinavian design emphasize on the use of organic materials, such as natural wood for furniture and accessories. Other materials such as leather, metal, plastic can be used to give a tinge of flavor.
By themselves, Scandinavian interiors look simple. Bright colored accessories such as sofa set, carpets can be used to spruce up the entire look. If you prefer a minimalist look, consider using black and white furnishing to achieve the overall feel.
Simplicity is the key for lighting, keeping to a bare minimal. Let in as much natural lighting as possible to achieve the open and airy feel.
