Sweedish Style Interior Decor
The Swedish style of Interior Design, often times referred to as modern, simple, or classic is also affordable, elegant and practical.
A very popular style, Swedish design evolved over the years becoming a collection of styles rather than only one style. To understand the secret of its popularity, we must study the circumstances under which the Swedish style of interior design evolved.
Due to the harsh living conditions of Sweden such as the frigid climate and long polar nights, and in order to instill the sense of calm and the idea of lightness, people are compelled to compensate, by creating interior spaces suited for 24 hour living. A style created for solving such issues is more likely to be appealing to people living in normal conditions.
Walls and Color
White is abundant in Swedish design, suggesting the idea of light. Grey and other pale, light, and airy colors are also commonly used. But covering everything in white, or only pale colors can feel bland and cold, so accent colors are commonly used to contrast the neutral backgrounds.
Natural colors such as brown, beige, green, red or blue are well suited in design. Any color is good as long as it blends well with the background. The result is a warmer and more cheerful interior, qualities that people all over the world can appreciate.
There are more choices in Swedish furniture styles than you could ever imagine. In Swedish design, furniture is the central subject. The accent is set on white painted furniture or brighter, even if darker wood like mahogany, alder or elm, is present. The furniture is practical with beautifying elements such as sweeping curves, straight lines, and carvings. Swedish deisgn offers many bed choices such as canopy beds, trundle beds, or day beds. Everything is painted in delicate colors and decorated with beaded edges and styled carved legs.
