The architecture and interior design of these countries is determined by climate and geographical location. The style emerged in the 50s in the Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, a design movement characterized by simplicity and functionality but never boring.
The poor natural light and long winters are one the main reasons to design interiors that are spacious and bright, so you must prioritize the use of natural light. For this reason, dominant colors are white and neutrals, followed by light shades to illuminate the rooms. Most materials and woods are also light colored. Details of vibrant colors like red are often used as well as blue, to provide clear details that stand out from the rest of the decor always focusing on the clean lines.
The materials and textures are inspired by nature and geography. Cotton and linen is the most common used textile. The style combines the traditional with the modern to achieve a unique environment for the home.
The functionality is above other aspects of the interior design and architecture, large windows are used to facilitate the entry of natural light. The ceilings are often high and the rooms are spacious and airy.
