• Living room design ideas – Scandinavian-style

    by  • May 26, 2010 • Stylish living • 7 Comments

    I LOVE these fresh and fuss-free living room designs from Ideal Home magazine, almost as much as I love the Scandi-chic look in general.

    Use Gustavian-style shades of white and cream to make your living room feel larger and lighter, and team with subtly patterned wallpaper and natural flooring.

    I love this traditional Scandi-chic design with splashes of red on the blinds, cushions and faux-flowers.

    … or if you prefer neutral and blues, try this living room design idea. Team pale woods and neutral shades with retro print floral fabrics on the curtains, blinds and cushions, and pick out the blue from the curtains for your sofas. It’s smart, contemporary and sassy!

      Very light and spacious. I particularly like the use of red accents in the first image, I wouldn’t have thought of putting floral pattern with stripes.

      Love the pale wood and blue – very calming. You could also add wood wall art to the walls, check this out:

      Loving the Scandanavian look but creams and white are definitely for me with 4 kids and 2 dogs lol. Just a touch with accessories I think.

      I have recently re-decorated my living room which looks very similar to the ‘scandi style’ picture above. My top tip is the unique lampshade I found made from natural cedar wood which works wonderfully as a centre piece. It also creates a lovely natural light in the evenings. Check out their website here http://www.naturalshades.co.uk

      I don’t think I have found shades like this anywhere else.
