A little about the Scandinavian design
The associations or expectations that you get when you hear Scandinavian design are really true. Yes, it was created according to a specific geographical location and climatic conditions.
In order to easily cope with the long cold winter, they created a bright, cozy, warm and functional space in the house.
And if we look at the historical facts, we will realize that the Scandinavian design was created by their daily life. Farmers found it difficult to move in the cold winter, so they had to arrange their own house with their own handcrafts by natural materials. And Unlike Minimalism, the love of nature in the Scandinavian design creates a very cozy and warm atmosphere.
Moreover, as they say, arranging Scandinavian design is cheaper. And natural materials, colours and plants, less furniture, more light and space are created to maintain the harmony of nature at home.
So now let’s discuss the Scandinavian design features in detail.
To make the Scandinavian long and cold nights easy to overcome and make the house more bright, mostly white was used for the walls and rarely light tones of other colours. However it must have been paint and not wallpaper. And the monotony was handled by paintings or family photos on the walls, which is still one of the main features of Scandinavian design.
For the floor, natural materials are still popular. It can be both glossy and matte wood material that creates a nice contrast with the white walls. However, even here, the use of lighter colored wood materials is recommended.
Followers of the Scandinavian style, like the minimalist style, use less furniture, aiming to have more space in the house. It’s true that we need to place less furniture, but it should also be more functional and practical. You will often find wooden chairs and tables here. And sharp lines are a key feature of Scandinavian design furniture. What is more, you can be more free when choosing the color of the furniture and can give preference to dark colours.
You will also find many fabrics in houses inspired by Scandinavian design. However, this must be made of natural materials. Be it carpet, curtains, pillows, blankets, covers or anything else.
You will also see geometric shapes, animals, birds and plants on the fabrics. Here you will notice the similar textures or visuals of animal skins. On the whole, your space will become more warm and cozy.
In Scandinavian design, decorative items are given special attention, which adds to the specific content of the environment and makes it even more diverse. Be it ceramic vases, souvenirs, candles or anything else. You will also meet vintage details quite often.
We should also mention the mirrors that reflect light and make our space look even bigger. And in order to liven up the interior, we need to have a lot of plants in the house.
Interestingly, because of the Scandinavian winters, the fireplace has become an integral part of the house. Besides being a good way for heating, it also creates a cozy atmosphere at home. However, it is also true that fireplaces are not often in new residential complexes, but we can still easily create this effect with the help of an electric fireplace.
So in order to create a special Scandinavian interior, you need to choose the right space and GLINT PROPERTY is here to help you.
