Scandinavian Color

Scandinavians “do” color. They do it well. Red and green complementary colors, with a very deep shaded green, adds interest and is one of the best ways to use complementary colors. Using soft gray in any color combination adds a sort of neutral zone (perhaps used in a countertop or a wall color) which allows each “feature” color to pop. I’m seeing gray more and more as an important foundation piece in a sophisticated color scheme.

Red walls, green/black cabinetry, gray countertops and stainless appliances? 

What’s Scandinavian about this image from the magazine DesignLiv? The flooring is wide planked wood with a light, natural finish, very common. Walls and ceiling are painted white, very Scandinavian, of course. The windows and beam add an old element, perfectly at home with the clean lines of the cabinetry. The green surface is soft and natural, the black is bold with a strong design statement. And, the trash can stands alone as a beautiful statement of function…very Scandinavian indeed.
