What is Scandinavian style?
Scandinavian style first emerged in the 1950s post WW11 in the Scandi countries at the same time the modern style was becoming more accepted in America. You might be thinking about another popular look, mid-century modern, that shares many similar characteristics and is from an equal time. Still, mid-century focuses on darker colors and sleeker silhouettes and finishes, whereas Scandi is brighter and airy. Because these countries are on the colder end of the weather, the residents love natural elements such as wood, plants, and trees to cozy up the space.
When decorating for this style, the hues tend to be neutral, with some colors inspired by nature, such as light greens and baby blues to resemble the water. While many people love the simplicity of this style, you can still add color and textures through plants and trees. Artificial plants are essential because the natural elements are essential in this look, especially since it's challenging to maintain greenery in Scandi countries. Not only is greenery a principle of this element, but silk plants for the living room are a great way to fill in bare corners of the home with maintenance-free home décor. One of the biggest appeals of this aesthetic is just that – the soothing appeal of coming home and relaxing after a stressful day in a decluttered home. And with their maintenance-free benefits, artificial floor plants provide another benefit.
