Scandinavian design is characterized by simple, minimalist spaces with clean lines and functional details. Today’s featured home is no exception. The bright and beautiful interior may just inspire you to add some Scandinavian influences to your own space.
Open and Airy Design
This home may be small, but the designer created the illusion of a larger space by keeping it open and maintaining a flow from room to room. A wall of windows bring in natural light and creative light fixtures add brightness, preventing the space from feeling dark and closed in. The glass wall between living space and bedroom also opens up the space. The designer continued the airy theme with smart furniture choices. The tables and chairs in each room have clean lines with open bottoms, making them take up less visual space to make the space feel more open.
Cohesion Through Color
A simple color palette is another trademark of Scandinavian design. In this space, light and muted tones are carried throughout, providing a clean and crisp look. Maintaining the color palette throughout each room allows the eye to move seamlessly from one room to the next, making the space appear larger. Pops of green and pink can be found throughout the home to warm up the space and prevent it from feeling sterile.
Creative Storage Solutions
Beautiful design is appealing to designers and home owners, but creating a functional space should always be a top priority. In this home, smart storage is a theme of each room. A wall of clothing storage in the bedroom doubles as a focal point thanks to open shelving with carefully curated items on display. The small kitchen features floor to ceiling cupboard space, with flat front doors, making it functional without losing the simple design of the home.
