The Scandinavian style may be all bright natural light and natural accents in their authentic finishes, but what if it could be modernized to suit the aesthetic of high-powered city people like Singaporeans? Sounds very interesting, right? Well, if you’re into this idea, then prepare to be blown away by these amazing Scandi-modern living room inspirations:
1. Bringing on the sleek
This media wall has an inherently Scandinavian look thanks to the combination of wood and whites of its material palette. However, the one aspect that makes it seem highly modernized is the sleekness that has been emulated within it thanks to its contemporary material choice. The laminates look very stunning and have the clean effect that both complements and enhances the Scandi-style vibe.
2. When summers are hot
The abundance of sunlight in Scandinavian style home interiors was usually because of the fact that this look originated in areas that has cold climates. You have to tweak it a little to suit a space as tropical as Singapore. The aluminum frames windows that lead away to the shaded terrace are an excellent example of this technique. They filter in the light, but have the same effect.
3. Green with moderation
Both the Scandinavian as well as modern styles are all about embracing nature, but the former does it in much more quantity than the latter. To kick off the right balance between the two styles, you can take inspiration from this media wall shelf. It features two shelves full of small green planters that perfectly harmonize the Scandi-modern look with their vivid greens.
4. Comfy but sleek furniture
The furniture used in your Scandi-modern interior designs has to be the perfect balance of sleek, sophisticated, and comfortable. A great way to do exactly that is by choosing an elegant sofa design and accessorizing it with comfy-looking décor. The chesterfield in this living room is a prime example of how to do this – it looks positively inviting thanks to the artful combination of throws and cushions.
5. Glossy openness
Another thing that Scandinavian home interiors are known for is their penchant for openness. While you cannot have a large amount of it in a relatively smaller Singaporean home, you can make up for it by using reflective whites and glossy sheens to get the illusion of spaciousness – just like the circulation space beyond the living room in this image.
