10+ Ways to incorporate Scandinavian design using Wood and Light

Check out these 10 ways to incorporate Scandinavian interior design using wood for your house. Scandinavian decor is still so trendy these days and can be so easy to include it into your housing. One of the main element in Scandinavian design the use of Wood, which gives the space a more homely and nature aesthetic. Wood also resonates with sustainability and is very affordable.

Light is another element in Scandi design. Allowing lots of light in your space makes the area seem bigger and more clean. Having white surfaces helps light bounce off and creates a more peaceable environment for you and your family.

Below are some inspirational images I found on how you can change up your space.

20 BEST AUTUMNAL SCANDINAVIAN HOME DECOR DESIGN 2018

Check out these 20 autum scandinavian interior design inspirational images for your house. Scandinavian decor is still so trendy these days and for autumn i find that it makes your house very cozy and ready for winter

Some ways that you can incoporate trendy scandinvian decor into your house is as follows:

  • mustard yellow furniture ( you can also add some mustard yellow cushions, green table linen, red comforter and so on)
  • Wooden elements which gives it a more cozy and brings nature into the space
  • Plants are very important but try and keep it minimal as it just adds a pop of color to the space

5 Scandi Ways to Transition your Home for Summer

Summer is coming up soon or may have already started where you are, and these are some ways you can make the transition from spring to summer. Scandinavian decor works so well during summer because of its simplicity and elegance. Summer is mostly directed to minimal, clean and bright spaces for a peace of mind during the heat.

The best way to incorporate summer into your home is to have a white base and add some wood accent features throughout the space. For a more cohesive look, try and match all the wood color and texture. It makes the room seem more put together and luxurious in its own scandinavian way.

These are five ideas to help you make the transition:

  1. Use transparent type chairs to open the space. In the image you can see how the the space is more brighter and bigger due the the opacity – ness of the chairs. This creates a beautiful summery aesthetic for your home. The color of the chairs are also very important because it helps with neutralizing the space by matching it to the walls and surrounding.

2. Pops of colour. Summer is the best time for color but for a scandi design too much color can look very messy and busy. Using just a pop of color in the more muted/ pastel zone can help bring some summer to your home. If you still feel the color is too strong, opting for some plants can also do the trick.

3. If you still feel the color is too strong, opting for some plants can also do the trick. In the image below, you can see how simple and clean the green looks with the black and white, this helps to bring in some color for summer but simple remain true to the scandinavian design.

4. Allow as much a light to enter, it gives the illusion of larger spaces. Reflecting light is very important for scandinavian design. It is one of their main features because the enlarges the space to seem bigger. In the image below you can see how small the bathroom really is but because of the light source coming from the ceiling and reflecting on the white marble walls, it just makes the space seem so much more bigger.

5. Having white clean surfaces, allows light to reflect making the space seem very bright and summery. Try to not keep many items on your counter space as it can look very cluttered and especially for small spaces, it can make it look even more congested.

Contrasting colours like black and white can seem to make the house very less colourful but it gives it a very clean and minimal scandinavian look. Adding small accents here and there, like with a clock, pillows or throws can change your space without breaking the bank.
If you want to corporate colour the best way is to use wood features which makes your space seem more homely.
