6 Easy Design Tricks We Learned from Our Friends in Scandinavia


By Grace Beuley Hunt, PureWow

Bare Windows


With minimal daylight throughout much of the year, Scandinavians do everything in their power to maximize it. (This translates to sheer, filmy curtain panels or entirely naked windows.)


Whimsy


While otherwise sparse from a decorative perspective, Scandinavian design often looks to unique, quirky presentations of common objects (think floating plants and quirky lighting fixtures). 


Styled Linens


You won’t find hospital corners and ironed pillow shams in Scandinavia. The resounding aesthetic when it comes to bedding is mussed, breezy and organic (and often strewn with books.)


Mixed Geometry


Think a rounded, bleached wood dining table mixed with angular, tailored chairs.


Greenery As Art


Scandi-friendly art is, by its nature, pretty minimal. Instead folks look to statement greenery (often placed against a pale, blank wall so that it really sings).


Hyper-Editing


Scandinavian interiors are nothing if not an exercise in extreme restraint. Halve your decor items on display. Then halve them again. (It’s the simplest shortcut to chic—honest.)
