Scandi Interior Inspiration

Where did Scandi design originate?

If having a minimalistic home is right up your street, then look no further. In today's post, we will discuss the trend that has been around for decades, Scandinavian Design. The design first emerged back in the 1930s originating from the Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland. Since then, we have seen other derivatives of the trend develop and it has continuously grown in popularity. With thanks to Ikea too! Scandi design is known for its timeless design and use of functionality within your space. Stay tuned for our recommendations on the best blinds to match this interior style!

What are the properties of Scandi interiors?

The main characteristic of Scandi interiors is the “Less is more” approach. Other properties include firstly, muted colours. Sticking to a neutral colour palette to produce a calmness within the space makes the room feel less cluttered. Secondly, wooden accents, most likely appearing through furniture, will consist of simple lines and maximum functionality. Another property of Scandi Interiors would be natural lighting. Plenty of natural light within your space reduces stress, and anxiety and makes us feel more productive. Lastly, indoor plants. Lots of them! Having plants within the home produces positive effects on our well-being and boosts our creativity.

Textiles are also important when it comes to Scandi interiors. Cushions and blankets are another way to elevate the space and add texture. Now it is time to talk blinds! As featured above, we recommend Venetian and Senses mirage blinds. These blind types are excellent when it comes to light control and functionality. Both blinds are moisture resistant and can be wiped clean. Another blind type to choose from would be our Allusion Collection. Designed to gently filter the sunlight while maintaining the view, these blinds are a great alternative to curtains. Ultimately, a timeless yet relaxed blind design. Ideal for your Scandinavian Interior home.
