10 Popular Scandinavian Designs For Your New Home

December 2, 2014
BOOKMARK

Mention Scandinavian design and these usual elements come to mind – Brightness and airiness, clean lines and earthy, neutral tones. But some home owners are updating the look, by throwing in unexpected details from splashes of bold colour, to edgy looking furniture and fixtures such as tiling and lighting. Some even mashed up the styles, introducing touches that are more reminiscent of a cafe or the raw industrial theme, that pop up throughout the house.

Check out these ten homes that deviate from the typical Scandinavian look, yet still remain quintessentially so at its core.

1. The look of this home may be simple but this love nest is filled with warmth and cosiness; evident from the quirky decorative items and framed personal moments that hold dear to the homeowners.
