New Scandinavian trends in interior design
1. PHILOSOPHY «LAGOM»
Last year, the focus was on the idea of comfort in Danish under the name “Hugge”. But this year, this trend, it seems, will have to step aside – to replace it came a more pragmatic and rational Swedish “lagom”. Lagom is the Swedish ethic of moderation. A lagom is not much and not a little, it’s exactly right. This is a non-scintillating look and minimalism in design, which Sweden is famous for. And even more – a lagom is a practical philosophy of life.
2. SPACE FREE FROM TECHNICAL DEVICES
In your apartment there must be a place where you do not constantly renew the facebook, where there is no noise from the TV or working mail on the computer does not distract from rest. This place should be a bedroom. Gray and milky colors, natural soft fabrics and natural wood will help create an oasis of tranquility.
3. STORAGE SYSTEM AS A DECORATION
Scandinavians know how to take an ordinary coat rack for storage and make it a work of art that will decorate any room. And it does not matter whether you use it for its intended purpose or not.
4. CULTURE OF THE COUNTRY HOUSE
Finland played a big role in the formation of Scandinavian design. One of the happiest nations – the Finns – has much to learn. The key criterion here is the connection with nature, with natural materials and, basically, with wood, using it in the interior decoration of the house.
5. FURNITURE WITH LEATHER ELEMENTS
In comparison with other natural popular organic Scandinavian materials, the skin is not so popular. But, according to the Swedish stylist Lotta Agathon, wooden chairs with leather seat and backrest – this is a new trend.
6. BLUE EXPLOSION
Can you name the most popular Scandinavian color for accents? That’s right, blue. Especially popular is the blue on the background of the white interior. The era of monochrome officially ended.
7. LARGE PAPER LIGHTS
Came from Asian culture, easy-to-use paper lanterns will decorate the space above the dining table and turn the kitchen area into an exhibition space with art installation.
8. GRATED WALLS
The lattice walls and ceilings create the feeling that you are in a spa hotel. The brain disconnects from external. Great idea for decorating a bedroom or a recreation area.
9. PICK THE TENT
Which child will not be happy to sleep in a tent? The Finnish designer Susanna Vento created a monochrome tent-bed, which quickly became popular far beyond Scandinavia. For example, actress Luc Lew used it to decorate the nursery.
10. GRAPHIC CALENDARS
Monochrome large font of the calendar will not only help to remember important dates, but also decorate the wall as a poster.
11. THE GRAY WALLS
The black and white interior gradually receded, giving the place a gray-white interior.
The American trend reached Scandinavia and almost turned into an epidemic. Feathers everywhere! And no matter where you use them – in the decor of the table, on the wallpaper or bed linen, they reflect the basic premise of Scandinavian design – nature in everything.
13. MONOCHROME ART
Yes, monochrome is not a surprise. But how beautiful is art in monochrome!
14. BAND ACCESSORIES
The strips again returned to fashion. Especially if they are black and white.
15. TAPE AS AN ELEMENT OF DECORATION
It has become popular to use colored scotch to fix posters and postcards on the wall, as blogger Ann Magritte does. Easy to use and the ability to change the visual range whenever you want!
