Looking for inspiration for your Scandinavian style decoration?

Nordic-inspired decoration has been a massive success for many years because it allows you to create a cozy, comfortable and warm atmosphere at home. The Danes have even created a term to describe the specific atmosphere of a Nordic interior: "Hygge", which can be translated as "well-being" or "comfort".

Indeed, we note that Scandinavian interiors really have this particularity of putting us at ease, as in a cocoon, hence the notion of "cocooning" so often associated with this decorative trend.

If you, too, want to tap into Scandinavian inspiration for your interior design, here are some tips.

Our tips for creating your Scandinavian decoration

The Scandinavian style is characterized above all by the omnipresence of natural materials and the importance of light to create an atmosphere that is soft, serene and elegant.

1. The choice of colors

The choice of dominant colors is of paramount importance for a successful Scandinavian style decoration: it is impossible to create a soothing atmosphere with garish or dark tones! You will need brightness and softness. Here are some colors that work perfectly with the Scandinavian style:

  • White: this is the dominant color of all Scandinavian interiors! White reflects light and opens up perspectives: you can use it and even abuse it. The other colors listed below will be used in small touches that will brighten up the whole.
  • Natural colors: light oak, pebble gray, linen, water green, mustard...
  • The pastels: celadon blue, powder pink, light yellow...

As far as possible, try to limit yourself to 2 or 3 colors in addition to white: this will offer more homogeneity to the whole, and will accentuate the impression of serenity.

2. The choice of materials

Again, let's keep in mind that the goal is to create a comfortable and soothing place. We will therefore favor soft and natural materials. Let's mention in a jumble: wood (light), rattan and other basketry, wool and cotton... Everything that is soft and pleasant to touch!

Have accessories dedicated to comfort wherever possible: cushions on the sofa, a plaid on the armchair, a thick and soft carpet under the coffee table... Life in this room should be easy and comforting.

3. The choice of patterns and decorative objects

Our last tip for a successful Scandinavian style decoration is the choice of patterns and decorative objects that will give life to the whole room. It's the finishing touch!

By leafing through the trend books, you will find that the patterns that come up all the time in Scandinavian decoration are geometric shapes : circles, diamonds and other rectangles are everywhere! Do not hesitate to draw on this infinite source of inspiration: it is very effective to succeed in bringing this famous Nordic touch.

Do you find that it lacks personality? So why not look for inspiration in "ethnic chic" or " bohemian" trends?

These styles are full of decorative elements with geometric shapes that combine wonderfully with the Scandinavian style, but with a different and perhaps more original personality. Some proposals: Berber carpets and cushions, Balinese offering boxes, African or Indonesian prints...

Now, don't forget to bring volume to the whole. Geometric patterns alone cannot. It is therefore necessary to spice up the decoration with natural elements because their random shapes will make all this breathe!

Our suggestions: have many green plants; for wall decoration and decorative objects, happily pick from natural materials such as wood, driftwood, basketry, ...

Trust your instincts! After all, if your interior design must please someone, it is above all up to you! Which brings us to our last piece of advice...

Bring your personal touch!

We think it would be a mistake to want to reproduce "line for line" a Scandinavian interior like those in the catalogs of furniture stores or distance selling.

Don't want your home to look like a show apartment? So create your own Scandinavian décor!

Do not hesitate to renovate or repaint old decorative objects to adapt them to your new style. Dig into your attic and you will certainly find old objects that you thought you would never reuse, but that will live a second life thanks to the "hygge". Do not be afraid of errors of taste, it does not exist, because all tastes are in nature.

This customization phase will bring a lot to the atmosphere and you will not regret it!
