Woody tone and au naturale concept lovers, we have the something in stores for you today as we uncover this particular style in various forms such as its design, uniqueness, tips and how you can identify them.
You may start to think about the design terms “Scandi” and “Scandinavian” etc. What do these terms actually define the style?
Origin: Nordic concept 1930s within the five Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
Design tips: Wide use of woody tones, wooden furnishing, white walls, muted tones, neutral tones, cozy accents, striking modern furniture, rustic wood grains and even plants.
Scandinavian design can be often described with these words: simplicity, utility, and beauty.
How to create that natural look?
One way is to boldly utilize woody tones which set as the main color palette in contrast with white walls and muted tones creating a white and brown color harmony.
Such design which consists of wooden accent usually expresses a cozy and comfortable effect which is rather pleasing to the eyes. Leverage on natural materials such as wood, leather, and sometimes linens can be considered for furnishing as it creates layering in textures and a dynamic focal point in the living space.
While most Scandinavian homes feature calming color palette and pared-down elements, decluttering your interior is one of the most important requirements, which helps bring out the simplicity that is Scandinavian design.
Last but not least, woody flooring contributes to the overall beauty of the design. Minimize the variation in selecting the grain whether it’s pine, bleached beech or stained oak and it will naturally warm up the entire abode.
