Four Perfectly Pale Scandi Style Interiors

Four Perfectly Pale Scandi Style Interiors

The perfectly pale aesthetic of a Scandi Style interior creates a crisp look that is calming to the eye. Gallery white walls and white furniture mixed with cool grey accents and a scattering of black base notes to bring balance is what a classic Scandinavian colour palette is all about. These four modern interiors provide inspiration on how to use this simple colour story throughout each room of the home, along with ideas for stylish minimalist kitchens and bathrooms. See how to warm an ice white decor scheme by using a selection of wood tone pieces, peppering with natural greenery, and introducing soft area rugs and cosy throws.

Beginning in the open plan living space of Scandi home tour number one we find a selection of simple slimline furniture. Scatter cushions and a woollen blanket make a small settee more welcoming. Layered books and candles on the glass coffee table create a well lived-in look.

The flooring is a whitewashed wood grain that bridges the gap between the paleness of white walls and the richness of a solid wood dining table.

A small gallery of wall art at one side helps the dining spot appear more established and permanent. A clear vase of green fronds makes a crisp table centrepiece.

  • 5 |
Indoor plants decorate the home in various places, displayed in decorative pots and on plant stands. Two sets of drawers have been pushed together to make a dining room sideboard, displaying more layered arrangements of books and interesting finds beneath another gallery wall.

The one wall kitchen is an installation of pale grey cabinets with a grey worktop and backsplash. The minimalist design has visual interest created at one end of it in the form of some open kitchen shelving. A ladder is kept nearby so that the kitchen equipment kept on the highest shelves may be easily accessed.

The grey kitchen also has a hanging rail that allows more cooking kit to be held out on display.

The child’s grey bedroom is awash with natural light through patio doors. What you see on the wall is an interesting concept called ‘birth posters’ – simple line illustrations of your baby at their real birth size. It is a neat way to remember how small they were the first time you met.
