The quiet confidence and clean look of Scandinavian interior design has long commanded the admiration of the style-conscious. The question isn’t whether or not we love Scandinavian style (we do), but rather HOW we can apply it to our own homes without actually relocating to a new country.
The first and fastest way to get things moving is with a fresh lick of paint. Mimic the calm tones of Scandinavian homes with subdued blues, cool greys, and light-loving whites to brighten your spaces and make rooms feel bigger.
What’s next? Ditch any dated wall-to-wall fitted carpets in favour of well-placed rugs for a more contemporary look (and less time spent hoovering to boot). Maltese summers make fitted carpets pretty impractical anyway!
As you know, we love Linie rugs. We have a stunning selection of them at LOFT. Pop in to take a look.
One thing you’ll never see in effortlessly stylish Scandinavian homes is clutter. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should start detoxing your home – simply get your hands on some storage that combines function and beauty. Finding bespoke furniture in Malta has never been easier, meaning that absolutely anyone can get storage tailor-made to suit every space and need.
Last but not least: accents. Use subtle pops of colour in the form of cushions, throws, wall-art, and even fresh flowers to add that satisfying hint of vibrancy to your décor. If you’re not sure where to start, yellows, greens, and natural wood textures and tones seem to be the most effective options – but never be afraid to let your own personal preferences shine through.
