Decorate With Swedish Design
Swedish design is all about being calm, simple, pure and yet being fully functional. Swedish design emerged in the 1950s and became popular again from the 1990s. It is characterized by simple design, minimalism, and functionality. One of the principle tenets of Swedish design is that of symmetry. The informality occurs with the simplicity of the furniture and the sparseness of the look but symmetry is also important, but as simple as two candleholders put side by side or two chairs, either side of a chest of drawers or writing bureau. White is one of the key colours for Scandinavian Design, it is not all about blue and white stripes. However, it is becoming more popular now to add in injections of colour – be it black, grey, yellow, or injections of any colour – it is the whole simplicity of the design that makes it succeed as a Scandinavian look. Bare wood is important to the Scandinavian look, as is paint. After all, Swedish design is not just about the home decor, it is also a way of life that exemplifies simplicity and efficiency.
