How to Create Scandinavian Style in Your Home
If you’ve been dreaming of a Scandinavian style for your home, you know it begins with white walls, wood floors, and modern furniture, but there is so much more. And it can be a little difficult to achieve if you don’t know what you’re looking for. (Keep in mind that the aim of any Scandinavian style room is simplicity and utility.) Although rooted in a modern aesthetic, it must feel cozy and organic with elements such as soft textiles, light wood stain and natural lighting.

Creating a space that is warm and welcoming is a hallmark of Scandinavian style. You can do this with soft linens, cozy sheepskins and chunky knit blankets. Look for soft grays and creamy whites. I especially like the blanket and anticipate one in my future!
To create a truly Nordic space, you want to facilitate an engaging experience with communal dining, minimalistic tableware, and lighting that simulates natural daylight. I fairly obsessed with this live edge table and can easily imagine this tableware on it (in fact I saw this tableware at my last trade show visit and I could hardly contain myself)
Against all the white walls and light (or white) wood flooring, accent your Scandinavian style with blue, either inaccessories, lighting, or paint colors. An accent wall in Benjamin Moore’s Yarmouth Blue (HC-150) would be divine.
To bring the outdoors in, add warm and rustic wood elements such as walls planks, wood floating shelves, and other wood accessories. I like the brackets on these wood shelves.
