Scandinavian design is centred on minimalism, and most often than not, include a number of wood pieces. They are usually characterised with colours like white and brown, making spaces seem a lot more spacious than they actually are. Here, we are going to show you some beautiful Scandinavian home designs that fit the conventional idea of what is means to have a Scandinavian design, but also some special ones to show you how to mix things up!
Here are 5 beautiful Scandinavian houses that we wish were ours!

1. The Classic

The Classic Scandinavian design includes fainter colours like light grey, brown and white: and these beautiful rooms are a perfect example! We are enthralled with the white lamp against the white background and how minimalistic the whole area looks. Those chairs look so classy and modern as well. Add a poster or two to dress up your empty empty wall for the extra 'oomph'!

2. Don’t be afraid to play around with colours!

Keeping true to the minimalistic nature of Scandinavian design, add chairs with muted shades for a sprinkle of colour. Contrasted the hues of brown and white from its dining table, the chairs are exceptionally eye-catching and gives it a more human-like personality as well.

3. Less is More

It is important for your entryways to be dressed up well! They are the first and last of point of contact when you enter and leave your home, so they have to be functional as well! Place various hangers and hooks to make a feature wall while making it useful to hang your umbrellas, jackets, hats, bags and more.
For the Scandinavian theme, try to stick to one or two basic colours with white and brown: pastels are a good option as they soften the look of your home and make it look cosy. If you have more space, adding a small stool or a chair would be useful as you can sit on it while wearing your shoes.

4. Come to the dark side

Who says dark colours aren’t part of the Scandinavian design? They go well with the cosy and sleepy atmosphere of the bedroom! Even if your house is generally brighter and lighter in colour, you can choose darker shades for your bed frame, flooring or side tables while sticking to your theme.
By placing wall art or wall lamps, they keep the simplicity of your design while adding style points to your overall look.

5. Scandi resort feels

The bathroom is often overlooked, but the Scandinavian design is the most practical and useful in bathrooms. As they are regularly wet with little ventilation, it is important to keep things simple and minimal in the bathroom. Remove your dirty laundry from your floor with laundry baskets, and keep counters clear with vanity organisers to clean makeup and brushes hygienic and clean.
