The Scandinavian design reflects the tastes and personalities of the homeowners giving it a unique character. The overall look in a Scandinavian home would appear quite eclectic for the Scandinavian love for mixing the new with the old and the elegant with the rustic. In this, they aren’t very different from the Bohemians, except for the choice of colors, as Scandinavians prefer subtle and lighter palettes.
The color palette used in Scandinavian homes comprises of whites, greys, off-whites and other subtle shades of nature that give the interiors an expansive look and feel. But they also like to break the monotony with colorful accents bringing with them pops of color.
Their maximum use of white and off-white on the walls makes the interiors look spacious and soothing on the eyes. The careful placement of artwork on the white walls makes for interesting décor. Sometimes this artwork is replaced with a patterned wall to garner attention. The flooring is mostly wooden, sometimes covered with carpets and rugs.
