Interior Design 101: Scandi

Scandinavian styles are very popular at the moment and combine two key factors; minimalism and functionality.

The style came about during the 1930s from Nordic countries. These countries are often covered in snow for much of the year and feature great forests full of trees. It is therefore not surprising that much of the styles inspiration comes from organic and natural matter, combining dark woods, with light and airy textures and tones.

What is so great about this style is that it helps to transform small spaces into large and airy yet cozy spaces, that in turn creates a very homely feel.

We’ve come up with a list of some of our favorite scandi-style pieces to help you embrace this Nordic style.
