Master Scandinavian Design with these Simple Hacks!

There is one thing we know for sure: the Scandinavian design is here to stay. 

The world has gone crazy about this simple and elegant style in their homes, the white floors, lots of light wood and an appreciation of nature. 

There are a few simple hacks that can help you master this popular design, and make your home cosy and stylish.

Incorporate Copper Details
Since this whole interior design may look bare and simple, you need to bring character with small details. A great way to achieve this is by introducing copper ornaments and accessories in your home. 

If you are feeling crafty and on a budget, you could use copper paint that is suitable for glass, and decorate your mugs, glasses, candles and vases. 

You can be creative and design these with Scandinavian-inspired motifs such as deer antlers, geometric patterns or leaves. 

You can also easily decorate tin cans with three coats of copper paint and turn them into cute, decorative pencil holders or pots for plants and dot around your home. 

For a bathroom refresh just spray paint the towel rings, mirror frame and bathroom hook.

Introduce Wood
To strike the perfect contrast to the whole white interior you should incorporate more natural wood into your home. You can do that through furniture, flooring or you can even decorate the walls with some wood art and panels. 

Another simple way is to introduce wooden branches as decoration. You can use some sturdy branches with a hook shaped piece and use them as coat hooks in your hallway. 

Also, you can use them as hanging racks, and hang a few of them in your living room or patio and have a perfect place for your hanging plants. 

Wood will bring warm atmosphere in your home because it is a natural insulator. But above all, it will turn your house into a lovely cozy place for your family.

Functional Bright Kitchen
As the busiest place in your home, the kitchen needs to be bright, spacious and functional. Like with the rest of the Scandi look, your kitchen can be painted all-white with copper and wooden details. Also, to make it brighter you should let as much daylight as possible in order to make it appear bigger and cozier. 

To respect the functionality of this design, you should make sure to have multi-functional furniture, lots of useful storage and no excess appliances and clutter.

Love the Nature
Despite cold long winters, Scandinavians adore spending time in nature doing various activities. To be even closer to the nature, they decided to bring it inside. To do the same, you should introduce plants and greenery in your home and show deep appreciation to nature and healthy life. 

Hang up your favorite flowers, filter the air with some bigger potted plants and introduce natural textures and fibers into your home. Hang some art that depicts nature and simple mimic its neutral tones in your home.

Cozy Corner Fireplace
To survive long cold winters, Scandinavians rely on their warm fireplaces that are there for heat and sometimes even cooking. Of course, with today’s technology we do not have to worry about the cooking appliances, but a nice corner fireplace is a great decoration and an artful focal point. 

It does not have to be big and in the center of the room, like in many other western countries. It should be simple, functional and simply to serve the purpose of getting your home warm and ready for winter.

The idea of moving to North and enjoying their beautiful nature and views is tempting. However, not everyone can do the same, so why not try bringing Scandinavia to us. Follow these few simple tips, and turn your home into a bright and warm place for living.
