On today’s post I will share with you a few tips on how to make your Home Sweet Home have a Scandinavian je ne sais quoi. <3
We’ve seen that the people from the Scandinavian countries have become masters in optimizing luminosity in their homes during all year around, bringing more lightness and clarity to the long winters that happen there. =[ Even though here in Italy we don’t get that much cold, I like to get inspired by some ideas of a decor that brings lots of lightness, tranquility and cozyness. And those who think that the Scandinavian style is all about black&white are mistaken … Oh yeah baby! There are infinitive possibilities to give to your house that Nordic flare, even if you live in a tropical country and full of vibrant colors like Brazil.
5 steps to add a Scandinavian Style to your home
# 01_Walls: Make use of white as well as the off-whites (white with little color pigmentation) to paint the walls, and if you want to add more interest / drama to the decor, choose a wall that will receive paint or wallpaper with a bright and moody color. If you prefer a more stylish environment it is worth painting the wall with geometric shapes.
# 02_Materials: Use natural or ecological materials that reproduce wood, metal, leather, wool and cotton. The ecological materials are a great choice due to being more affordable and safe for the environment, but if you want to join the eco-friendly movement, try acquiring second-hand products and restyle them – the nature thanks you. <3
# 03_Furniture: Prefer furniture with straight lines and simple design. The finishing can be of clear wood, painted white or black, you can also choose any furniture with a brighter color that stands out in the room. Follow the hint of “less is more”: prefer less furniture, but functional on organizing your objects.
# 04_ Nature: Interior plants bring life to the room. You can arrange them on a piece of furniture, on the floor or hanging from the ceiling… do you remember the Ferns from your grandmother’s house? 😉

# 05_Accessories: With the accessories you can play using bright and vibrant colors, representing the joy brought by the sun. Colorful cushions and racks, rugs with geometric pattern, bronze lamps and flowerpots … now it’s cool to bring some colorful Brazilian inspiration. / Here also applies the rule of “less is more”: it is better to have few decor objects making a cool visual impact than generating a visual discomfort caused by clutter.
