Here at DesignRulz we know that our readers love  Scandinavian apartment designs. Renowned for their simplicity, utility, and beauty, Scandinavian homes have a pure, pared backed style that is centred around warm functionality, clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance. Scandinavian interiors feature large windows designed to miss a lot of daylight, plenty of wood that breaks the whiteness, soothing atmosphere and, last but not least important – such interiors have a great modern charm. The use of light is considered to be extremely important, and many Scandinavian homes  are characterized by the use of earthy muted tones, honest materials and minimal ornamentation. Wall to wall carpets never took off in Sweden and all truly Scandinavian interiors will have a wooden, preferably light, floor in all rooms apart from the bathrooms.

Here is our Top 3 Tips for Creating a Scandinavian Interior:

Colors

White walls and cool grey and blue textiles definitely gives off the right ambience of a Scandinavian interior however there are more colorful textiles from the likes of Marimekko in the 60s pop vein and the much more decorative Josef Frank from the 40s. Both very different, both very Scandinavian.

Put a fireplace in the corner

Scandinavian winters are much harsher than those in the UK and most apartments and houses have an original fire in the living room. Unlike British fireplaces that are usually the focal point of a grand room, these are often very simple columns (many originals from the 19th century are beautifully tiled) and are located in the corner of the room.

Furniture

There are such incredible pieces from several manufacturers. From the mid-century period designers like Hans Wegner, Alvar Aalto and Arne Jacobsen stand out and their pieces are just as beautiful today as they were when they were conceived.
