Traditional design with a whimsical light fixture
For a Scandinavian interior, the color palette used are white, soft dove gray, off white and some soothing tones from nature. But you will also see that some items in it would bring it pops of color from accents to decorations. Using white make the spaces appear more spacious creating a relaxing ambiance. On the white walls, artworks are being placed. Sometimes, a patterned wall will also be added as accent to these white walls. Flooring is usually wooden and would sometimes have carpets or area rugs to add a softer touch to the interior.
Simplicity at it’s finest
The furniture for a Scandinavian dining room design is simple, elegant and comfortable – multi-functional furniture is typical for the style. The furniture should be in light colors and made of natural materials that is why the most commonly used material is hardwood which looks as if it never was treated.
Open shelves, sometimes used as a room divider are also quite typical for the style. Scandinavian style dining tables are made from fine woods like oak, walnut or ash, often combined with quality finishes or metal legs. With minimalist and clean shape, the tables are simple, elegant and fit perfectly in modern interiors.
