Scandi interior wallpaper

What is Scandi interior design?

A Scandi interior speaks of simplicity and minimalism. The use of pared back functional furnishings and clean lines emphasize a calm, light filled serenity in the space.

This is an ever popular interior style because it fulfils our desire to live in an uncluttered, restrained yet inviting and cosy home.

How do I get a Scandi look?

Minimalism doesn’t have to mean plain painted white walls. Use a variety of muted hues such as shades of grey, neutral tones even soft greens and icy blues. These tones create interest.

Whilst then introducing a naturally distressed design with tiers of texture to give an ambience of relaxed comfort.

Monochrome is also a feature in a Nordic home, think black framed artwork on a white wall. So how about taking that into a wallpaper design?

How to use wallpaper in a Scandi interior style

Wood wallpaper

Many fantastic wallpaper brands such as Borastapeter and Engblad & Co come from Scandinavia.

To create texture in a Nordic inspired room a typical material used is a light coloured wood. So using wallpaper that looks like timber is perfect for this theme.

Scandi style is very focused on layering. So you could layer white on white using a subtle pattern whether it be a geometric design or abstract pattern. Just keep it simple. Approach your wallpaper in a minimal way.

Use it to create natural finishes and refined attraction rather than a bold feature wall.

Natural materials are also a key element. So we have looked at timber but the use of a grasscloth or sisal wallpaper here would also be fitting.
