This might be the most obvious part of the Scandinavian style. I’m sure you’ve noticed how bright and white everything is! That’s because there are two elements at play here.
The first is light. In Scandinavian countries, wintertime brings only four hours of light per day! Since natural lighting is best, make sure to ditch the heavy window treatments and go with sheer curtains instead. Ceiling and floor lamps also tend to avoid lamp shades that prevent light from reaching every corner. Scandi light techniques make use of the light-colored furniture and soft wood or laminate flooring to spread across the room.
The other element is colour. White and other light hues are primarily used when you don’t want to bring attention to something in the room, or when they are used as a foundation for an accessory. Earthy colours are best, but you’ll want the occasional pop of colour, like sea green or turquoise, to balance this out.
