1. LEAVE ROOM FOR PERSONALITY.
Using white as a base colour is key for achieving a Modern Scandi look, but be sure to incorporate pieces you love — like dramatic artwork — so the look doesn’t feel staid.
3. EMBRACE A MINIMALIST DESIGN.
Scandi style is characterized by minimalism and functionality, and the look has also given rise to iconic furniture pieces, like the wishbone chairs seen in the dining room.
5. KEEP A CURATED CLOSET.
As the adage “out of sight, out of mind” goes, it should follow that if it is in sight, it will be on our minds. For minimalists, it’s fortunately so, since regularly editing the contents of a closet is essential to maintain a clean, clutter-free space.
6. DON’T FORGET ABOUT PRACTICALITY.
Space-saving solutions maximize functionality in this workspace: a pair of articulating wall sconces provide illumination without monopolizing surface space, while a metal grid affixed to the wall takes advantage of vertical space and offers opportunity for organization and display.
