Scandinavian Style: Add a Splash of Nordic Flare to Your Decor

Give your space a dash of cool sophistication with a few Scandinavian pieces that simply scream style

Modern, bold, minimalist and busy all at once, Scandinavian design may be an exercise in cool contradictions, but there’s no question it looks good at home

Understated. Uncomplicated. Sophisticated. You’ll find all of these qualities on the calling card for Scandinavian design. Whether it’s the carefully ordered chaos of a Marimekko print or the welcome austerity of minimalist decor, employing Scandi style gives your space a subtle edge and hint of cool.

Try these five items for a taste of Nordic flare.
