Born out of tough Scandinavian winters that demand efficiency and a sense of airiness to drive away any notion of gloom, this is a style that is perfect for the small living room. Color is kept to a bare minimum when it comes to crafting a lovely backdrop in the Scandinavian living room, and it is generally clad in pristine white. This reduces visual fragmentation and visually enhances the available space. The use of limited and curated decor with sleek, straight lines also aids in creating a tidy living area that seems both inviting and cheerful.
Are you not one to settle for those basic hues on the color wheel? That is definitely not an issue when it comes to brightly colored sofas, as you can pretty much order a custom piece in a color of your choice. Hot pinks and fuchsia seem to be a popular, offbeat choice among homeowners who wish to give the living room a hint of femininity, while orange is for those who seek spunk and flamboyant flair. And if all this still does not satisfy your demand for color, then turn to a few gorgeous throw pillows to fill the living room with even more vibrancy!
Even more popular than the sofa in lighter hues of yellow is the couch in light blue. For many, this is the perfect couch that balances excitement and brightness with an ability to blend in with a wide range of color schemes and styles. If you are buying a sofa in bright cobalt blue, velvety navy blue or dashing indigo, there are two distinct routes you can take with the style of the living area. Those in love with a traditional-style interior can consider styles like Victorian by combining the sofa with accents of gold. But if you still want a modern living room, then coastal, beach, Scandinavian, eclectic and even contemporary styles can easily accommodate the beautiful blue sofa.
As alluded to earlier, white has always been a dominant color in Scandinavian living rooms. But the last few years have seen a surge in another neutral that is quickly replacing white and has even found a way to coexist with it. Gray is definitely a hip neutral hue that is simply refusing to die down as a hot trend. Now is the time to give your living room with Nordic inspiration a touch of gray by adding a cozy couch in the color or even creating an accent wall in light, smoky gray. It is generally the lighter shades of gray that work well in Scandinavian spaces, but you can pick a darker hue if you want to create a greater visual contrast.
If you cannot find a live-edge coffee table that meets your decorating needs, it is best to think about custom solutions. Turn to your local craftsman and get creative with the coffee table design! All you need is a natural slab of timber that you are in love with, and there are times when you can even craft one in your own garage. Crafting your very own DIY live-edge coffee table is easier than it sounds, and you can also proudly showcase your improved DIY skills, as the bespoke table sits at the heart of your fabulous living room.
Black and white backdrops with shades of gray work beautifully in a Scandinavian living room, and it is a look that seems to combine modern minimalism with urban classiness. But makes sure that black is used sparingly to just anchor the living area and highlight certain architectural features, as too much black can quickly alter the mood and the appeal of the interior.
