Scandinavian wallpaper has become increasingly popular in the last few years as the Scandi trend has taken the interior design world by storm. Scandinavian design is known for its minimalist aesthetic which emerged during the 30s in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
Interiors inspired by these aesthetics often feature lots of whites and cool blues and greys. This is where nordic wallpaper is a great option, which can then be complemented by understated, chic textiles and warm woods for cupboards and furniture.
The main design principle of the nordic trend is “less is more” and therefore a Scandinavian wallpaper is a fantastic way of showcasing your sophisticated design tastes without going overboard.
Always opt for subtle rather than big, bold patterns and colours when it comes to your Scandinavian wallpaper. Chic, understated patterns in cool hues are the way to go, leaving the rest of your space versatile for your decor and furniture. Nordic design is the ‘quiet achiever’ of design trends, offering homes relaxed, yet sophisticated vibes.
