The Scandinavian design aesthetic is renowned for its simplicity, utility, and beauty. Scandinavian homes have a pure, pared backed style that is centred on warm functionality, clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance. The use of light is considered to be extremely important, and many Scandinavian homes are characterised by the use of light coloured wooden floors, white walls, and minimal ornamentation. The principles of Scandinavian design are therefore based on prioritising functionality without eliminating grace and beauty.
