An island of tranquility
We can hardly imagine life without social media, emails and gadgets in the age of globalised information and ubiquitous digitalisation. Scandinavians are not oblivious to the negative effects of this lifestyle on mental health. That's why every home has a technology-free zone. Most of the time is spent in bedroom. There should be no noisy TV, computer or other technical devices. Just a sea of cushions, soft light, a desk lamp and a tranquil colour scheme. Soon you will notice how the quality of your sleep will improve! You will finally feel rested.

Storage system = decor
Scandinavians, who are used to subjecting their interiors to the laws of minimalism, prefer functional decor. For example, a kitchen island with a built-in wine bar illuminated by a Ralph pendant light. It will be a great option, as well as a mobile clothes rail where you can hang a selection of looks for the week ahead. What's more, even a good old-fashioned stepladder can be used as a flowerpot stand, and a grandmother's trunk can be used instead of a coffee table!

The era of monochrome interiors is over. Although Scandinavian interiors are originally considered to be home to pastel shades, accents are increasingly set with "sky colour". This can be a complete accent wall or the Bremen chandelier paired with a blue armchair.
The choice of shade is not accidental: psychologists believe that blue colour promotes harmony and the creative development of the personality. It also soothes and helps to relax.

Wooden slats and beams
Scandinavians often use wooden elements in their flats, trying to achieve maximum of comfort. Slats and beams under the ceiling create the atmosphere of a country house, where you feel comfortable and relaxed, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Such a technique helped to refresh the monotonous black and white colour scheme in the interior with the Hamburg chandelier.

A variety of lighting
The light fulfils its direct lighting function and plays an extremely important role in creating of coziness. A poorly lit, dark living room is unlikely to inspire a warm, relaxing evening with the family.
A good spot lighting will make your flat brighter, and you will be a little bit happier and more relaxed! You can use the traditional ceiling chandelier for central lighting (we use the Hamburg model), built in lights and different pendants. Zone lighting can be created with pendants, wall lights, table lamps and floor lamps. As for spot lighting, miniature spotlights are indispensable.

The large dining table is considered a symbol of warmth and coziness (the only rival is the sofa in the living room). The whole family or company of friends gather around it.
The best thing you can do with the dining area is to style it to look like a country house interior. Tablecloths, wicker and knitted napkins, decorative arrangements of dried flowers and brutal fixtures like the Jester chandelier can help you to create special ambience.

Books for decoration
At some point, books stopped being just a source of knowledge and became... a source of inspiration! The books, arranged neatly on shelves and racks or carefully placed on tables and pedestals (as in the interior with the Galaxy floor lamp), somehow inexplicably fill the room with coziness. It's also handy because it's mobile: at any time, a stack of books can be tucked away to the suitable location.

Every year we are promised that grey colour will finally go out of fashion. However, it continues to gain ground and remains a favorite base for all designers. It has also made its mark in scandinavian interiors, it used instead of the usual white walls.
In order to avoid the monotony and dullness of the interior, you can spice up the grey scheme with modern paintings, textured brickwork and wooden elements - as in the interior with the Alpha ceiling light.
