As a fun bonus today, I’ve partnered with PosterStore.com to bring you guys a fun giveaway. They have a beautiful selection of posters and black and white prints that perfectly compliment the Scandinavian style. Keep reading to find out more on that!
Scandinavian interior design style really grew in popularity these last few years thanks to Pinterest. It’s one of my personal favorite design styles and I believe it’s also a classic style that will never grow outdated.
Scandinavian interior Design Characteristics
- Pale Wood
That short list sums up Scandinavian interior design in a nutshell. Simple and uncluttered are a must to achieve Scandinavian design and it’s harder to pull off than it looks! At least here in the US where we all have too much stuff.
Mostly white interiors with pale wood are also another major element of Scandinavian design. For that reason start with selecting white paint colors for the walls.
It can be done with other colors, but in my opinion, when more color is used it tends to look more modern than Scandinavian.
Let’s look at a few pretty examples of this design style.
Scandinavian living room
This first Scandinavian living room is beautiful. Even though it’s modern and uncluttered, it still has a cozy feel thanks to the throw blanket and pillows. The beautiful branches add life to the space.

This next living room lets the architecture shine.
Light wood tones, lots of white and modern fixtures work so well together in this kitchen. We really like the contrast of the black chairs and artwork added here.
The Scandinavian kitchen below is so minimalist, the table and cool chairs become the focal point.
Scandinavian dining rooms
The super clean lines in the modern Scandinavian dining room below let the focus be the view out of those large windows.
You can cozy up this design style with texture as shown below. Without the jute rug and placemats, this room would feel cold.
Transitional spaces should be pretty too and these Scandinavian hallways are beautiful examples of carrying a design throughout. A gorgeous gallery wall and wood floors are beautiful in this monochromic hallway.

The less is more approach is also pretty.
An uncluttered, clean bedroom makes for a great way to start and end each day.
That is not to say that Scandinvain can’t be full and cozy!
Luxury Scandinavian never looked so good as in this bathroom below. Such a stunner!
However, a modern Scandinavian bathroom is very achievable on a budget as you can see below.
