A charming table that is situated in a hallway just next to an apartment door. It’s a beautiful and simple arrangement of interesting objects and textures.
A wall of green in an apartment I rented in Copenhagen. Organic neutrals - brick, pure white, deep green add warmth, light, drama.
Simple, strong white elements surrounded by a beautiful color green for the walls and light neutral flooring - a serene feeling. The floor’s texture adds a feeling of nature as does the leafy green color and garden lattice pattern.
A green Scandinavian kitchen - green tiles and trim create a flow. I love the shelves, the medium toned wood and the simple walls. I don’t love the floor tile. Simple is good. From Maison Interior - a Scandinavian magazine.
I love this dining room for several reasons.
I love its simplicity
I love its eclectic nature, blending old and modern
I love the use of contrast
I love the use of art
I love the sculptural (and rectilinear) shapes and forms

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.
