Cool and light, with graphic elements and colorful accents, the Scandinavian look is an interior design trend that has been around for some time, and isn’t likely to disappear soon. That’s no surprise! The cool, light basic tones inherent to this style make an ideal canvas for infinite variation. The best place to start if you’re seeking to create a Nordic look is, of course, a light floor.
White is the ideal basic colour for a Scandinavian interior, for both walls and flooring. Choosing a blank foundation allows you to create an atmosphere of spaciousness and serenity. A floor in a light hue creates an optical illusion of space in rooms with ceilings lacking in height. A ‘fresh look’ ambiance is typical to houses in the High North, while the interior still reflects the owners’ personal tastes. By choosing light colours as a foundation you can easily display your personal mementos and photographs without producing a cluttered result.
