“I want my interior to have a Scandinavian design!” This is something we hear (or say) all too often because this Nordic concept, though born a long time ago (in the 1930s specifically), still remains one of the most popular choices amongst Singaporean homeowners to this day. Its modernist, functionalist, and simplistic forms, along with its comprehensive use of natural materials are the main reasons why people adore it so much. But do you know what Scandinavian design particularly entails? What are the some of the fundamentals and must-haves required to bring out this design fully in your home? Let’s cover a few key components, shall we?

 

Floors

Light, wood floorings are typically found in Scandinavian designs. Shades of the wood can vary from pale to dark brown depending on what the homeowner wants to achieve.

Neutral, calm, and muted tones are a trademark of Scandinavian design. However, some people enjoy putting a modern twist on things and adding bright-coloured elements and accessories to freshen things up. It’s always cool to add a hint of flavour to showcase your own personality in an interior so we say go for it!

Okay, here’s something to remember when it comes to the physical components of Scandinavian design: rustic wood grains, plants, and furnishings are your go-to ingredients. If you’re one of those lucky ones whose house happens to be seated amongst natural scenery, good for you! The whole idea of Scandinavian design is to keep things as close to nature as possible. A popular option nowadays, especially in Singapore, is to add feature walls made of bricks with coarse textures for an ambience that radiates grace and austere.

Clean lines, lots of natural light, and floor-to-ceiling windows are crucial details that require attention since they help bring out the simplicity and elegance that is Scandinavian design.

In Scandinavian design, functionality reigns supreme. Homes that sport this theme are open, airy, and have a flow that allows easy living. So forget huge, furry rugs and clear those photo frames off your television console because less is more here.
