Calling all minimalists, you can’t go wrong with Scandinavian design principles for cosy, timeless appeal.

Think beautiful wooden furniture, soft faux-fur bean bags, and windows that soak up picturesque views.

For all your Scandinavian interior design ideas, here’s everything you need to know.

What are the principles that define Scandinavian design?

Scandinavian interior design uses neutral tones and natural materials like wooden furniture and linen fabric to create a simple and clean look.

Take cues from this Point Chevalier villa which exudes a calm white and wood interior with subtle yet vibrant additions of colour.

How do I use colour in Scandinavian design?

Against a base of neutral tones like white, grey and beige, add pops of colour through decor and soft furnishings. Incorporate shades of green, pastel pinks and blues and burnt orange for a quintessential Scandi look.

How can I decorate like a Scandinavian?

When it comes to Scandinavian furniture, invest in solidly made classic pieces like sofas, tables and occasional chairs. Opt for light-coloured wood alongside cream and grey tones — by keeping the palette neutral, you’ll ensure your interiors won’t date.

Then, add vibrancy and up-to-the minute touches in the form of linen cushions and bedding, glassware, and inspired art. The Scandi aesthetic will come together in no time.
