Discover The Top 7 Scandinavian Design Trends You Must Follow ⇒ The contemporary and minimalist Scandinavian style is one of the most popular design trends, seen all over the world and serving as inspiration for many of the biggest interior designers. CovetED prises itself on bringing you the best news and trends, so today we bring you seven Scandinavian design trends you have to follow and that will completely change your space!
Lagom means finding just the right amount, which is a beautifully Scandinavian approach to life and design. It’s predicted it will make its way from our daily schedules to our bedrooms, where “conscious buying and slow design” will take centre stage. This is inspired by “Lagom: Not Too Little, Not Too Much: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced Happy Life”, a book by Niki Brantmark.
Storage as Decor
“My absolute favourite Scandinavian decor trend is taking what would normally be a boring storage piece, and making it a design focal point in your home,” says Anna Decilveo, merchandiser at Swedish-founded company Tictail. “The shelf or basket you would’ve likely hidden in your closet is, instead, a work of art in itself. We’re already seeing so much of this from emerging Swedish brands on Tictail.”
Bold Accents of Blue
Blue is Scandinavia’s favourite accent colour. A bright blue stands out brilliantly against all-white interiors, like in this colourful 1920’s Copenhagen home belonging to industrial designer Josefine Bentzen.
Worn leather pieces are becoming major in Nordic interiors. They’re rustic without looking too antique — and look great with a sheepskin blanket tossed over their back.
The black-and-white aesthetic has been done in every corner of Scandinavia — which is why we’re so excited to see grey walls making a comeback. They provide the same neutral, monochromatic appeal but dialled back a few notches.
In a time where we are constantly connected through technology and social media, it is important to have a designated space to switch-off. Creating a highly-personalized space that is warm and welcoming, without the distractions of phones, televisions, or computers is important in counteracting busy day-to-day life and focusing on the heart of design.
There’s an ethereal feel to these giant paper lanterns, both an interpretation of Asian-inspired light fixtures and a sideways take on a traditional chandelier. In calligrapher Ylva Skarp’s home, four huge lanterns hang over her kitchen table, creating a whimsical overhead installation.
