Scandinavian design is so versatile that you can use it for holiday chalets, urban flats and stylish contemporary residences. In fact, its characteristic of being timeless makes the inhabitants feel relaxed and connected to contemporaneity. Spotted on folkhem.se, the apartment below is bright, spacious and very welcoming. Transparency and smooth communication between spaces are key when it comes to Scandinavian design. The kitchen, the dining area and the living room share one open space, allowing the owners to move freely around. Stay stick to natural materials and you will have harmony at home. Wood dominates this interior: it was used for flooring, items of furniture and even instead of tiles in the kitchen. It makes a wonderful couple with white which was also used with abundance in order to obtain generous reflections of the sunlight. As a friendly rule, less is more in Northern homes and if you take it as an inner statement you will enjoy clean, pure spaces. Of course, original decorative items were introduced to add personality to the space: king size photos and drawings, baskets, lighting items, ceramic vases and wicker hats may be on the list.
Wood flooring goes very well on the terrace.
