Whether in Scandinavia or Asia, good décor transcends borders! So let’s take a trip and sneak a peek at how some of the most adored interior décor styles in recent years are done in different parts of the world!

Here are five stunningly decorated homes to inspire your creative palate:

1. Urban Nordic

Scandinavian décor continues to be a popular interior theme in most parts of the world and it’s not hard to see why! This sophisticatedly laid-back home in Sweden represents its native Nordic signature with warm tones, streams of unobstructed sunlight, natural wood floors and furniture, as well as plenty of indoor greenery.

2. Asian Contemporary

Contemporary décor is another beloved design concept, thanks to its typically warm and casual ambiances that still deliver on style. It’s also an incredibly attainable décor theme, no matter the size or layout of the home. This family apartment is the epitome of modern homeliness that remains composed with clean lines and a structured layout. It is also imbued with soft tones and traditional elements of comfort e.g. plush sofas, throw pillows, soft lighting, and homely wood furniture for liveability.

3. The Manhattan-Loft

The beauty of modern décor lies in its understated charms where colour, construct, and layouts are always exceptionally composed and structured. You’ll see plenty of monochromes, cool tones, and sometimes even a pinch of brutalist furniture. This loft in Israel however, gets expertly refined, almost Parisian-like treatment to soften the setting with bright walls, (imperfect) raw wood pieces and flooring, greenery, and maximum sunlight!

Here's the winning formulae to create a perfect oasis at home - throw in rustic wood or eco-friendly furniture for warmth, and opt for open spaces that allows lots of natural light in. The result? An Instagram-worthy space that is gratifyingly homey.
