What is the Nordic Design Style

Emerging in the 1950s, the Nordic style became widespread in Scandinavian countries where the long, cold winter was spent indoors.

Fusing modern style with rustic simplicity, Nordic minimalism creates an aesthetically pleasing ambiance mainly due to the lack of clutter and the precise presence of softness in colours.

Using simple, clean lines, walls are painted in light shades, and classic elements are arranged, a homely environment is created wrapped in the warmth of natural materials.

Typical Colours

The typical Nordic colour palette is based on pale shades that do not overshadow the interior, using whites, ochres, and light and dark greys, alongside touches of black and plenty of greenery.
