How to balance fashion with functionality
Published on March 12 2020
When designing a room, no matter if you are designing it in the Scandinavian style or in another esteemed style, the main ingredient is balance. One of the fascinating things about a Scandinavian home is the perfect marriage of form and function. A living room will generally look beautiful, but it will also have everything you need to feel comfortable.
In the planning phase, think about everything you need to make the room work perfectly for you and your lifestyle. Some questions to ask yourself are: What surfaces do you need, will you need a standard or modular sofa? When it comes to furniture, consider very high-quality natural materials, such as leather, solid woodRemember to add plenty of blankets, cushions and candles, as well as plants and flowers.
Scandinavians often turn to nature outdoors for inspiration, so plants and flowers are popular. You can also gather pebbles and shells from a nearby beach. If you don't live near the coast, conkers and acorns from the forest also make a nice seasonal display, especially when placed in a glass jar with a simple white candle in the center. A living element adds beauty and color to the home, which makes us feel even closer to nature.
