Whether you’re a new homeowner of a BTO or looking to renovate your house, it’s definitely an exciting journey to embark on! You probably might have a vague idea of how the interior of your home should look like, but putting things together can be pretty tough when there are so many wood furniture in Singapore to choose from! If you love the Scandinavian theme, check out these 5 simple tips that will surely help you to pull off that Scandinavian look for your home!
NEUTRAL COLOURS ARE YOUR ONLY FRIEND
When it comes to Scandinavian design, neutral colours heavily represent it. Choose colours such as brown, grey, black and white when choosing the interior colours for your home. These neutral colours create a very calm and peaceful look. However, you are not solely limited to these colours. Add some character and a pop of colour to your interior by focusing on muted colours such as dusty pink.
LIGHTING IS THE KEY
With minimal daylight available during the winter months, lighting is heavily used as home – different types of lighting fixtures to brighten the home and candles along the window sills to create warmth. Lighting is part of the key in Scandinavian design. When considering the lighting for your home, let as much natural light in and focus on making your space as bright and cosy as possible.
LAYER IT ON
During the winter months, warmth is essential. Hence in Scandinavian design, it’s no surprise that you’ll see textiles as part of the design for warmth and comfort. Sheepskins, wool, cotton and many more are used largely. Not only do they provide warmth, but they also add textures to the space. While these may not be ideal for Singapore’s humid weather, beanbags in Singapore are a good alternative as they look comfy yet cooling at the same time.
ADD A TOUCH OF NATURE
Flowers and potted plants are a big part of the Scandinavian design as well. In the Scandinavian region, the sidewalks of streets are often seen filled with florists selling fresh flowers in all kinds of variants. Homes in that region are often seen with fresh flowers or botanical. Therefore, your Scandinavian interior theme should include some greens as well. If flowers and plants are not your cup of tea, consider botanical prints and wall arts instead!
KEEP CLUTTERS OUT OF SIGHT
Another important aspect of Scandinavian interior design is using storage space smartly. Things are stored away neatly to create a space that is visually calm and relaxing. Follow the ‘less is more’ mantra and decide which item has got to go!
