Bring Nordic Elegance into Your Home with ecoBirdy

Simple, calm, clean, cosy, bright but diffused. We appreciate how the Scandinavian interior design style is connected with nature. Creating an atmosphere that makes you feel in harmony with the space, with its soft colours, natural textures and abundance of light. 

Originating from the 1950s, the Scandinavian interior design style has been in popular demand worldwide ever since. It’s thought to be conceived alongside the modernist movement in Europe and America, as the Scandinavian modern style concentrated on easily obtainable and sleek interiors. 

Important designers who contributed to the emergence of this style include Alvar Aalto, Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner, Kaj Franck, Borge Mogensen, Verner Panton and Grete Jalk.

A Scandinavian home is a place that fosters a sense of ‘Hygge’ (cosiness, comfort, and joy) and ‘Lagom’ (just the right amount: not too little, not too much). And what makes the design style playful and accessible is that different objects, from a variety of styles, can form a cohesive ensemble, opening a subtle dialogue. 


How to decorate a scandi inspired interior?

1. Let the light in. The uniqueness of a Scandinavian inspired interior is all about creating a light space with the diffused sunlight from high latitude. Prioritising light creates a sense of warmth on the gloomiest days. Embrace natural lighting by accentuating the window openings, and bring it further with light-coloured walls and arrange furniture around it.

2. Balancing textures. To add warmth and depth to the interior, combining different textures and finding the balance is the key. The different materials in your home can reflect the diverse treasures found in nature. Wood, stone and textiles are often chosen to demonstrate their natural characteristics, such as veins, patterns and wovens. While metal, glass, and other man-made materials are brought in to accentuate details by different light spectrums.

3. Minimal decor, maximum functionality. Embracing simplicity and clean lines, Scandinavian-inspired interiors redefine functionality in a stylish way. Opt for sleek, furnishings and decor pieces that serve a purpose. This approach not only fosters a sense of calm, but also maximises space, allowing for a clutter-free environment. By adhering to the principle of ‘Lagom’, Scandinavian design creates serene living spaces that radiate effortless elegance.

4. Subtilty for a sophisticated coherence. Every detail in a scandi home is curated to gently contribute to the overall aesthetic of the space. Creating subtle contrasts between white, light, and neutral colours enhances the sense of spaciousness and serene ambiance. At the same time, subtle contrasts can be applied by layering different textures, as mentioned before. As well as by incorporating diverse shapes, like combining sharp-edged decor with more organically and round-shaped furniture.

5. Selecting quality and authentic design pieces. Investing in unique high-quality design furniture ensures longevity but also contributes to the artistic appeal of the space. Look for carefully crafted pieces known for their resilience and sustainability. Contemporary furniture designs that fit into the Nordic style, often feature clean lines and minimalist design qualities, supporting a timeless elegance that extends beyond trends.
