Nordic Style Inspiration

Nordic Interior

Presented by: RE/MAX Results Logo

Scandinavian interiors are so chic—bright, clean and surprisingly warm given their liberal use of white paint and light colored wood. We fellow cold-climate dwellers can learn from their devotion to function, comfort and ease. Nordic style is rooted in the belief that good design starts with functionality and simplicity, that natural light should be prized, and natural elements such as wood, plants and textiles can create harmony in a space. Here are some examples from Instagram that might inspire you.

This living room/dining room is almost textbook Scandinavian with its white walls, light wood floors, Arne Jacobsen inspired dining chairs, window-like mirrors, interesting yet functional light fixtures and textured fabrics that make you want to curl up on the couch.

Open shelving for ease, subtle concrete counters, practical stainless steel sink, and a beat-up wooden cutting board make this kitchen feel organic and unfussy.

 

White doesn’t have to mean sterile. Swedish blogger Eva Hjortsberg achieves an energetic kitchen by bringing in bold colors everywhere but the walls, floors and cabinets. The result is bright and happy.

 

It seems Scandinavian style involves not a few wrinkled textiles to smooth out the utilitarian lines of the more modern furnishings. Takes a little getting used to but it works—this space would be far less inviting with out the rumpled rug, throw and pillows.

 

A grand old space dressed with white walls, bleached floors and both contemporary and rustic pieces make this room impressive, bohemian and welcoming.

Inspírate… Colores claros, techos altos, plantas y arte. Combinación perfecta!
