Indoor life has always been significant in the north. Scandinavians have worked hard to make their interiors welcoming and fun to live in, owing to their cold climate. However, when we think of Scandinavian architecture, we usually think of light wood and pastel colours. Given that we have been bombarded with photographs of this nature for the past two or three years, this is understandable. However, restricting Scandinavian interior design to only certain elements is highly restrictive. It’s a lot more fun and more prosperous than that.
Scandinavian architecture is often associated with minimalism and purity. It’s never crowded or hazy. To “breathe” and reflect natural light takes a lot of white space. I like how even the painting is white in this case. It aims to give the wall texture while keeping it clean and straightforward. It provides the space with a feeling of lightness.
Compare and contrast
Contrast aids in the movement of the eye around a space while also adding character. It can be a little dull and bland when it is of the same colour strength. The grey moulding, which runs around the apartment, attracts the eye and keeps things interesting.
Natural light is scarce in the north, particularly during the winter. White walls are therefore ubiquitous in Scandinavian interior design. But, as seen in this bedroom, dark painting may also add a sense of cosiness. The space is intimate and welcoming, which is precisely how we want a bedroom to feel.
I’ve found a sprinkling of antique furniture in Nordic homes. The deep warm wood parts of furniture in this apartment seem to have been accumulated over time. They give this house a sense of cosiness and personality. The same can be said for small decor items like vases, pottery, and candle holders that appear to be handmade or found at a flea market.
Textile that is warm and welcoming
Last but not least, textiles play a significant role. Both the shabby carpeting and the sheepskin armchair add to the feeling of cosiness and warmth.
