There’s a lot of interior advice out there which says you shouldn’t mix cool and warm colours in a room. In this living room the cool grey dominates with the walls, rug and furniture whereas the warm beige has been used as an accent colour.
A lot of Scandinavian homes opt for windowless curtains where possible, to maximise natural light.
Whenever you look at homes in Scandinavian style decor you always find really well chosen, stand-out lighting. There’s lots of layering and texture in this room which makes if feel cosy and inviting. Linen curtains, shaggy rug, fabric lights, woollen throws and ceramics all add the to the warmth of this space and of course lots of plants.
The bedroom is simply decorated in white and pale grey but once again we have stunning feature lighting. That over-sized fabric pendant light above the bed is so eye-catching and works so well with the simplicity of the rest of the bedroom.
There are unexpected details throughout the house like the exposed brick wall in the hallway and the floral wallpaper just outside the bedroom which again adds to the beige accents in this home. That’s one thing that always stands out about Scandinavian style decor – they are so good at using their spaces so well, no matter how big or small.
