The Scandinavian interior-style becomes one of the most popular interior-styles in general. Reduced, minimalistic, modern and flexible – the Scandinavian style fits perfectly with the city lifestyle of most urbanites. Scandinavian design is affected by nature using organic forms and wood, fur as well as wool. A Scandinavian living means cozy, individual and sustainable. Because this lifestyle doesn’t only apply to metropolitans, the popularity of the Scandinavian design grows beyond the city boundaries.
Scandinavian Design: A lot of whites and light sources
In the north, people like to perceive their environment and furnish with fresh colors: a lot of bright and white to reserve the darkness during the winter months. The Scandinavian winter is much longer and darker, that’s why light sources play a huge role as well. Also, nature is a role model for the Scandinavian design, a country with great forest, rivers, fjords, and lakes.
Next to native lumbers organic forms are also a preference in combination with white. Another maxim of the Scandinavian interior is at first function and second form which is on the principles of the Bauhaus-style based.

Anthony & Caroline – Our New Home
We already introduced you to the kind couple from Denmark in our very personal interview here one year ago.

For a month now, they have escaped city life and built their very own dream house.

You also know Niki Brantmark, founder of the successful and worldwide known blog My Scandinavian Home, because we introduced her in a detailed article before. With her sense of the interior in combination with a balanced life, Niki convinces us and her eight million visitors on Pinterest every month. Her book “Lagom, The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life” is the Swedish philosophy for enjoying a balance in every aspect of life. And it feels like Niki Brantmark has assimilated it into her life and work. It’s remarkable how a Swedish culture and way of living can have such a positive impact. The Swedish word Lagom can be translated as not too much and not too little—just right.
