Scandinavian Interiors

Living in Norway and Denmark for the past (almost) 3 years has introduced me to the famous Scandinavian style of interior design. I didn't think I would ever consider grey furnishings or all white walls but I must admit I'm getting sucked in. I had always thought these white walls were very clinical, lacking personality and that grey wasn't even a colour. But this was where I was wrong... The Scandinavian style is far from lacking personality. I have realised that these stylish Scandinavians use their home as a blank canvas and dress it up with modern furniture designs, lively prints and quirky lighting. They also like to bring plants and other elements of nature into the home which breaks up the clinical feeling and creates a softness. 

There are certain styles or products I have noticed everywhere so I've collected some images to display these Scandic trends.

Copper details...



The flip clock screen saver...



Plants, plants, plants...



I love these plant pots by the Danish design duo Meyer-Lavigne!


Collages of frames full of geometric prints and motivational quotes...





Oversized light bulbs...




Branches...




Now I need to stop as I could go on and on! Throw these together with an IKEA sofa and a sheepskin rug and you're in the club! :P

All these images and more can be found on my Pinterest board here.
