Christmas season is just started and here are some ways to decorate your home Scandinavian style. I have taken inspiration from various trends and tried to incorporate them to create a white and silver theme with strong black and wooden elements.

As we want our space to feel christmassy but also elegant and simple without having too much decor clutter,

These are some easy tips to change up your space for Christmas. 

  1. Keep most of your colour scheme white, you can also add some red/green colour 
  2. Garlands are very easy to decorate with, ex: around the door, on the dining table. 
  3. Christmas trees can be tricky to decorate but a good way is to stick with one colour ornaments for a cleaner look 
  4. Changing out hand clothes in the kitchen can instantly spice up the kitchen for christmas.

So relax, cozy up and enjoy your christmas!

  • White furniture ( you can also add some white cushions, white table linen, white comforter and so on)

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.

 

7 Ways To Add Pops of Colour for your Scandinavian Home

These are some small ways you can incorporate colour into your house without it being too over-powering. Colour is very important to choose as the tones can set the way you feel in a space.

People usually stay away from colour because they don’t know where to use. I hope these pictures can you give you idea on how to use colour and how to make it seem less distracting.

1. Having a statement piece like a couch. One of the ways you can include colour is by having a big statement piece and then, have the remaining of the house in neutral colours. This gives the house a little life and then its very easy to decorate the rest.

2. Adding small pops of colour with plants. I think plants are the easiest way to incorporate colour into your house. They bring life into the house, using fake plants can help with little to no maintenance and the green add such a nature vibe to the space.

3. Woods / Browns are a really great earthy tone colour for homely vibes. I love really light / almost white wood. they give a very clean but still has that really homely feeling.

4. Adding small snips of colour on cupboard or with books, can brighten the space.

5. Cushions can add a subtle pop of colour. Cushions are one of the best ways to incorporate colour. They don’t cost money, you can change them up every season, and they are just very small pops of colour.

6. Adding an accent wall. Lets say, you have already decorated your house and you just feel like it has no life or the space is lacking strong features. An accent wall is a big statement, but if done right can enlarge the walls and give it that grandeur effect. Also, if you do not want any colour, adding texture to the wall can achieve the same effect.

7. Adding accent chairs to a space. Accent chairs are also a great idea to set the mood of the place. In the example below, you can see how they have just a simple black and white house but adding these orange accent chairs just changed the space up!
