Nordic Design

Nordic design: Scandinavian design is very simple, sober but impressive.

Nordic design is clean, linear and extremely relaxing and, as the name suggests, was born in the countries of the Scandinavian peninsula: Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.

Decorating the house in Nordic style means creating a functional space that is lived in, welcoming and warm. Usually this is achieved by using materials such as wood, exposed metal or rough stone finishes and natural textures such as wool, linen and leather.

Nordic design is inspired by nature, not only in terms of the materials used, but also in the shapes of the furniture. Open and spacious spaces, functional design and lots of wood: these are the basic elements of Nordic design style.

Clean, sober, elegant and refined but at the same time “warm” and welcoming: this is the Nordic style. The Nordic or Scandinavian style was born from the need for harmony between man and nature to counteract standardization and exasperated technology.

A design capable of placing itself at the service of a community, living in an area with an adverse climate and low light. A style born to try to create a warm, bright and welcoming home space despite its territory and climate.

Another guideline of this style is the particular attention to ecology and respect and harmony with the natural environment. The Scandinavian furniture reflects a healthy love of nature: the charm of the woods, the majesty of the Nordic landscapes find their precise and refined expression in the interior design concept.

The other watchword for Scandinavian furniture is functionality: any aesthetic excess is banned in favour of perfect purity, geometry and linearity.

A room furnished in Nordic style is not a cold and aseptic environment but, on the contrary, it conveys a sense of warmth and special welcome, inspired precisely by the choice of furniture and furnishings.

There are no strict rules for the choice of colours to use. The important thing is that the visual impact doess not result too heavy or too dark for the eye.

The natural style at home: a conscious and eco-sustainable choice but also an opportunity to create relaxing environments.

The natural style is characterized by combinations of sober/neutral materials/colors, inspired by the Scandinavian style. It is not necessary to overturn the house to create the natural style, just choose wisely furniture, accessories and coverings that will make the space more welcoming and intimate.

The natural style enhances the light thanks to specific materials such as wood and rough stone. This encounter between natural light and these organic and naturally imperfect materials gives the environment delicacy and personality.

How to create the natural stile at home:

– Wood: it’s the material par excellence that best represents natural style. In addition to furniture, wood is also ideal for covering the walls, resulting in a functional and decorative solution that will give warmth and at the same time keep the atmosphere relaxed.

– Being inspired by Scandinavian style: so we try to opt for a minimalist but comfortable style by choosing pastel colors that recall nature. In the living room we recommend sofas and armchairs with fabric upholstery and wooden frame.

5 ideas to furnish your home with the Scandinavian style. Here our tips to create a real hygge environment.

The ideal basis of the Scandinavian style is the use of wood, preferably light wood, bleached but also colored (only for some accessories or furniture) in more vibrant tones in order to break the monotony of an environment that would be too trivial. Wood, being a warm material capable of creating a very welcoming environment, is always modern and up-to-date, finding great versatility and insertion even with very different styles. You can create, in fact, neutral combinations, anything but cold that can prove extremely hot and become the keystone to solve situations of furniture in a way that is anything but anonymous.

Here are 6 suggestions to take inspiration from:

1 Kitchen

We recommend combining light wood with a matt finish, white or a very delicate pastel colour, such as blue or green, thus creating an essential and minimalist environment that is at the same time very welcoming. If the kitchen is large, it is better to opt for a table with stools or chairs in natural wood.

2 Living room

The very light wood that in its nuances goes as far as the warmest essences of the honey color, or the very dark wood, which can create very interesting contrasts, could be one of the most suitable solutions for those who want to give a touch of Scandinavian style to their living room. Avoid, for the upholstery of the sofa and armchairs, the too dark and heavy colors such as purple, burgundy red and bottle green … Focus on delicate colors such as pink, blue and soft yellow.

3 Dining room

For the decoration of a dining room using too much wood combined with white or soft colors may be a wrong choice, as the environment would become too cold and aseptic. It is advisable, therefore, to play a little more with warm colors, with dark wood, with particular furnishings and design that can give personality and vigor to the space.

4 Bedroom

In the bedroom the furniture has to relax and reconcile sleep. It is therefore not possible to use solutions that are too bright and tiring for the eyesight, which in the long run would only risk being irritating. So it would be better to dose the use of wood, which would create an environment too warm, almost suffocating and the use of white color that would make the bedroom too bright, almost blinding.
It is advisable to opt for large, enveloping beds covered in soft fabric, minimalist, essential furnishings and accessories and to choose relaxing colours for the eye, such as blue, grey, pale pink and green.

5 Bathroom

The combination of light wood and white is ideal for bathroom furnishings, as it makes the room bright but welcoming at the same time. The style will be clean, essential and modern and will be able to revolutionize, with a few tricks, the entire space.
