Would you believe anyone who ever told you that you can pair up the Scandinavian and the Industrial style in a totally unique combination? You’d totally be skeptical about it. While one is edgy the other is soft – how can you possibly combine both?
There’s definitely a way to do this, and the result is known as the Scandustrial style. Let’s find out how you can incorporate it in your own home interiors:
1. Whites with black edges
The Scandinavian style is renowned for its austere white and wooden scheme. On the other hand, the industrial style is known for its dark edginess. You can combine the major visuals of these two aspects in a breezy white-and-wood material scheme that is underscored with edgy black coloured frames along the window edges, doors, and more. It’s definitely a smart combination.
2. Plush and concrete
The second major aspect of any interior design is the furniture palette. The Scandustrial furniture scheme is a blend of unique plushness relative to the Scandinavian looks with an overlay of industrial colour schemes. The couch that you can see in this image is an excellent example of how you can merge these two aesthetics in a single interior design.
3. One major element
If your interior design is leaning either too much on the Scandinavian side or too much on the industrial side, you can introduce one major element of the less dominant aesthetic to balance out the visuals. For example, it can be an aluminum framed bar for an increasingly industrial look, or it can be a marble-themed table countertop for a Scandinavian look.
4. Balance is the key
For the Scandustrial style to truly look amazing, you need to achieve that perfect balance of the two main styles that it is comprised of. Neither one nor the other style should be used too much in isolation. Just take the kitchen in this image as an example. It features a really good combination of Scandinavian whites and industrial blues – you can definitely appreciate the seamlessness of the blend.
5. Accessorize accordingly
Since the Scandustrial style is a combination of two very unique options it also features a creative blend of accessories that promote the best of both. Once again, you must be very careful with how you ornament the ambiance, or you’ll just end up with a cluttered and wholly useless home aesthetic.
