Design Tip: Creating a Relaxed Nordic Look in Your Living Room
Scandinavian interior design and lifestyle trends have been a hot topic for a while now, and they are not going away anytime soon. As the trend for so-called ‘Hygge’ and ‘Lagom’ lifestyle choices persist, the Scandinavian penchant for understated interior design, reclaimed wood furniture, neutral pastel shades, and cosy fabrics has culminated in what we might call a Relaxed Nordic look. This look is great for making your home feel modern and welcoming, especially in the family hub of the living room. For help on how to achieve this look, read on to view our suggestions from our stylish collection.
1. Bean Bags
Nothing says ‘laid back and relaxed’ more than some stylish and comfy bean bags. These bean bags come in a range of colours to suit you and your living room, and are a great family item, really encompassing the Relaxed Nordic ethos.
2. Oak Television Cabinet
To really make a living room homely, it needs a television placed in a way, where the family can watch all of their favourite shows and store their favourite things. This large cabinet can do just that, and it fits in with the Relaxed Nordic trend for light oak furniture.
3. Velvet Throw
This richly coloured fleecy throw is the perfect piece to add a sense of opulence to your living room, offsetting the more neutral and woody tones typical of the Scandinavian style. Great for snuggling and throwing over chilly legs, it is an excellent item to have handy during the winter months.
4. Lamp shade
Lighting your living is fundamental to achieving that cosy feel to make it feel homely. This lamp shade provides both an ultra-modern design, a neutral colour, and a ripple texture to filter light in an interesting way. The embodiment of Nordic style!
