Using Muted Colours and Shapes As Scandi Style Decor

Scandinavian style interior design is best known for its simplistic nature and monochrome look, but it’s high time for a little colour and shape. New muted colour mixes add a sense of sophistication and warmth to the minimalistic Scandi aesthetic we’ve all come to recognise and appreciate. Think russet tones, dusky coral, mellow light ochre, inky blues and sage green and you’ll be headed down the right track. This selection of three inspirational home interiors use muted moderns and bold shapes to set crisp yet cosy living scenes. Surrounding white spaces and wood tone bring balance, light and a sense of calm.
