With simplicity, minimalism and functionality at its core, it’s no wonder we are continually drawn to Scandinavian interiors, fashion and lifestyle.
With a new year comes a fresh start and in 2019 we are all searching for ways to live a life less cluttered. Scandi design is wonderful source of inspiration to refresh, restyle and reorganise for the year ahead.
At M&B we are embracing the 2019 iteration of Scandinavian simplicity with open arms!
Here are our top tips to create a minimalist Scandi inspired haven in your home:
Set a tone of calmness and space with simple colours like classic white. From walls to furniture, opting for all white will add a refreshing lightness to your home instantly. All white also works as wonderful blank canvas for your home, allowing you to add warmth and fun to your space with accent colours and unique décor. Block colours like black, grey and dark green furniture will also add a stylish yet minimalist feel to your interiors.
Remember, minimalism doesn’t mean boring! Folk elements and bright accent colours also tick the 2019 Scandi interior trend essentials list. Choose simple cushions and throws with a pop of fresh colour to add depth and warmth to your space.
Strong textures and interesting materials are key elements in creating an authentically Scandi feel to your home. Natural wood textures in muted oak tones are a wonderful way to introduce an earthy, natural, calming style to your interiors with a 2019 twist. Raw finishes and textures in soft furnishings and dinnerware are also a great way to work artisan style details to your home. Opt for natural looking ceramics with simple touches, like pretty glazes and textiles with woven details.
When it comes to shape, this trend is all about function and minimalism. Think well-made pieces, shaped for comfort with minimal fuss! While simple in shape there is also often an innovative angle. Sandi style furniture never misses an opportunity to make the most of the design and shape in the most efficient way. Take our Henrik magazine rack as an example. Made from solid oak with a natural finish, this neatly designed side table provides stacking space for books, magazines or notebooks while maintaining a good sized table top for a reading lamp, cups and more.
You’ll also see versatility in Scandi design, with shapes that are simple yet useful in different rooms for different uses.
Scandinavian design is timeless and effortlessly elegant, making it a truly wonderful choice for a fresh new start to 2019.
