Scandinavian interiors are well known for their utilitarian approach to design, respectful use of natural materials and their application of stylish storage. You can adopt the style in any room, whether it be a simplistic bathroom or a comfortable bedroom. You can even add warmth and texture with the addition of faux furs, thick rugs and untreated wood.
Take a look around these beautiful, Scandinavian style homes, filled with practical, liveable design ideas.
