#FridayFavorites: Interior Design Styles – Scandinavian

Scandinavian design style is moving and trending all over the world! It started in Norway, Sweden, Iceland, and Denmark and is now making a huge hit in America! The whole design style is based on simplicity and minimalism and the thought that everything beautiful used in decor should also be functional. What a great way of thinking, right?! That’s one of the reasons we’re absolutely loving this look. So today, we’re showing you how to achieve the Scandinavian interior design style!

As you can see, it uses A LOT of white, but that’s what gives it the simple, fresh look. You can add in color with a basic light pendant or with some extra decor that we’ll show in a bit.

You can see the bed with the extra drawers was made for style and function as well as the chair below it. All the other pieces kept their simple look and take up as little of space as possible.

Here is where you can throw in a few pops of color. Incorporate it into your artwork. These two rounded sculptures with the colorful women on them are very Scandinavian and work really well in an almost all white room.

Have fun with it and get creative! Let your personality shine through your home!

4 Different Ways to Decorate Your Bathroom

You don’t want every bathroom in your home to look exactly the same. Sure, a clean and crisp, white bathroom is beautiful and stylish, but add some color and style! Play around with your decor and have fun when designing each bathroom. Try to channel a different aspect of your personality in each one. It’s a small room, so it won’t look odd if they’re all completely different. Here are a few ideas to get you started…

Traditional

Of course, you can go traditional with dark wood, light granite, white molding, and a beige paint. This look really depends on the home owner and how they want their bathroom to be perceived. We suggest using this style in the common bathroom if the rest of your home is decorated in a more traditional way. It’s known as a “safe” style, but will always be beautiful.

Mid-Century

Keep the paint and base color white. As shown in the picture above, you can play around with the tile and add in geometric patterns here and there. Get creative with the mirrors, metals, and decor additives, and just have fun with it!

Nautical

Now, this is a design style you have to be careful about using in the bathroom, because you don’t want to go overboard. Stick with white and dark (almost navy) blue. Don’t have too many anchors and boat references in the decor, but feel free to add in natural elements.

Bohemian

Feel free to put everything on display! Use even your necklaces as part of your wall decor. To achieve this look, you definitely want to add in greenery and some lively patterns. This is a style where you can throw anything into the mix and it will look like it belongs.
