The Scandinavian trend has been trending a lot lately in Singapore homes – but do we really know why and the beauty of it?
The popularity of Scandinavian design can arguably be linked to the “stripping back” of homes. No longer are antiques, or country-styling the essence of a luxury home but minimal, light and sustainable interiors. This can be easily achieved by keeping the interior simple – with white walls and the idea of going natural with different wood types and textures.
The Eclectic-Scandinavian Style involves colours…and lots of colours. These type of colours typically are bright and bold, but if bright and bold is not your cup of tea, multiple pastels together work well too. The trick to play around with this style is to pick colorful accessories instead of colorful furniture – this allows flexibility in changing the interior without having to sacrifice too much.
