Scandinavian living room design styles from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland have some key elements they all share. They true essence lies in the balance of functionality, simplicity, and aesthetics. Elegant, simple and cozy, it’s no surprise the Scandinavian style is so beloved by interior designers and design lovers alike. Today, we’ll show you 20 beautiful Scandinavian living room designs to inspire a home decor makeover.
Family and guests are two very important aspects that need to be considered, not only in Scandinavian design but when decorating for a living room, and that is where the functionality steps in.
When we mention Scandinavian or Nordic interior design, you know we have to mention the color schemes. Neutrals are the first choices when decorating with this style, but you can spice it up and make it modern with a touch of bright colors, such as yellow or blue, even pink. Make your living room your own, even with this simple style.
Colors of big items such as sofas and armchairs usually tend to be neutral and decorative accessories are used to break the silence with their very bold colors. However, you can keep it neutral and go bold with dark colors and a touch of wood here and there. A well-lit room is also important and especially a place intended for reading-related activities.
Bring a touch of your own personality and identity on the wall decor and other accessories. Plants, wall decor, even the choice of patterns, but don’t forget not to clutter the space you’re decorating, since that’s against the very essence of this style.
Both functional and decorating rugs and curtains, as well as bar carts, fireplaces, media console and gaming spots, are all common sights in Scandinavian living rooms with purpose only to feel as welcoming as possible.
A simple and modern style that is able to harmonize perfectly with amazing furniture pieces: industrial lighting, black leather sofas, patterned rugs and mid-century sideboards.
Make the most of natural lighting to bring an even more natural look for your living room and make it more functional, without the need of so much lighting pieces.
