Decorating our home can be one of two things. You either love all the planning and preparation and even implementing your ideas and bringing them to life. Or you simply despise the idea of a paintbrush in your hands and hours perusing websites like Pinterest for inspiration. However, if you love it, then you will know that part of the fun is thinking about how you want the room in question to look.
The style you want to go for, the furniture and accessories you want to include, and even how you might style it for that all-important social media update. I thought it would be a nice idea to throw some inspiration your way and explore some of the modern interior design ideas that have gotten the home decorating world in a buzz.
The Scandinavian effect. Clean lines, minimalism, these are just the start. Here are some ideas to bring this vision to life.
Wood & White Walls
A Scandinavian modern interior has very minimal needs. But two of the main requirements we see time and time again in interiors designed for this aspect is the use of wood and white walls. White walls are clean-looking but are also excellent for making a room appear brighter and larger.
Wood furnishings can then soften what can be harsh walls with something that has a warming appearance. Think wooden tables or furniture units like drawers. It could be something plain and simple that has been painted, varnished, or waxed to really show off the wood grain effect.
No interior decoration with a Norwegian vibe would be complete without the use of some different accessories to tie everything together. Think modern rugs, funky lamps or even things like candles, lanterns, or trays to bring a different vibe to the room itself. Think about where you position these items to gain maximum effect within in the room.
An Accent Colour
A Scandinavian design is also playful and fun, which means introducing an accent colour into the room will really help bring everything together. Use your modern accessories like rugs to being in different colours elements. Stick with one shade, or add a few that merge together well. The backdrop may be white, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still fill the room with colour in different ways. This is also helpful if you decided to change the colour, as it can be a very versatile space to redesign.
Does The Room Lend Itself To A Fireplace?
Know Norwegian designed room would be complete without a fireplace, of course, that is if the room lends itself to one. If you don’t have one, you can create the effect of one. Thankfully you can even buy electric heaters that look like wood burning stoves these days.
Let The Light In
Finally, this interior design is all about the light, so it’s important to be able to let in as much natural light as possible. Open the blinds or curtains, and make sure your room is flooded with as much light as it can be.
