The Scandinavian style is very pragmatic and usually provides a hand-on spatial experience. It’s also become highly popular all over Singapore, and if you want to emulate it in your homes, here are 5 mesmerizing ideas to spice up your Scandinavian style living rooms:
1. Add some leafy greens
While the urban landscape of Singapore is not really fit for indoor gardening, there are a few choices (both natural and artificial) that you can use to spice up your Scandinavian style living rooms. Having a small piece of nature inside the home can make a great overall impression when you’re working with a theme that appreciates organic textures and other nature-related paraphernalia.
2. Add bright accents
The Scandinavian style is all about working the neutral palette to the best, but constantly using shades of grey and brown can make the spaces feel dull. But, you can break out of that monotony by adding bright accents all over the space. You can use pastel artwork, colourful couch cushions, and even metal trinkets and accessories to get the right effects.
The layout of any Scandinavian style interior design is designed to enhance the impact of the surroundings while highlighting spaciousness. To this effect, the furniture has to be as compact and simple as you can make it. It’s best to avoid anything frou-frou and keep with the no-fuss design attitude. Moreover, the layout has to be arranged in a way that optimizes the quality of the space instead of diminishing it.
4. Showcase the simplicity
Every single thing about the Scandinavian style is designed to be as simple as possible. It’s a combination of function and aesthetics, so make sure that everything that you display in such living rooms has a purpose. Whether it’s a bookshelf or a sofa or a media console, it has to have some pragmatic contribution to the space to be considered a successful addition.
5. Lack of accessories
As mentioned before, the Scandinavian style is all about embracing simplicity and creating a no-fuss environment. So naturally, the use of accessories and décor is very limited. Typically, light fixtures are used to make a bold statement and a bookcase or accent artwork is arranged on the wall to get the décor out of the way. Other than that, there is minimal accessorizing unless it’s functional.
