When it comes to home design there are many styles to choose from – eclectic , industrial, traditional or vintage etc. Despite all these contenders, the one clear winner is always the Scandinavian style. With it’s clean lines, minimalist approach to furniture and ability play with textures, it’s no surprise that this interior style is so popular with the masses. So with big events like Christmas, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah soon approaching, why not incorporate a bit of Scandinavian design into your own home? In this post we’re going to show you some easy ways to help you create the perfect Scandinavian dining room to wow your guests whatever the occasion.
Opt for some dining chairs that ooze Danish design. Try opting for a chair with what’s called an ‘Eiffel tower leg’. See the picture to understand. These are notoriously Scandi in style and are affordably priced. You can get them in all sorts of colours so you could keep it neutral and opt for the traditional and most common white colour or go a little bolder and mix them up by choosing a few colours and mixing them – this will bring in a little quirkiness and eclecticism.
When trying to create the perfect Scandinavian dining room another thing to consider is your choice of wood finish choice. It’s not often you see dark woods in Danish design as they are known for sticking to light oak tones. Consider a lighter coloured wood for your dining table, shelves, flooring or anything else you have in room that requires wood as a material.
Another typically Scandinavian feature you’ll notice is how they stick to a neutral palette. Think creams, greys, whites and pastels. Scandinavian design is all about muted tones and simplicity. Colours equal fuss and boldness so if you can try to keep a neutral base for your home. If you play with textures like animal hides, woods, and earthy materials you will prevent the room from looking bland.
