Pops of Robin’s Egg Blue

Scandinavian interiors use mostly neutral and natural tones, with the exception of one particular color: robin’s egg blue, a calming, cool hue that plays well with the whites and blonde woods of Scandi style.

Natural Touches

"Displays of nature can add living elements to the home and allow you to bring natural colors to the normally white, grey, and muted shades typical of Scandinavian design,” says designer Nina Barnieh-Blair of NinaBDesign.

High Contrast Hues

"Light woods that have subtle variations in color, like blonde wood with pink undertones work incredibly well with black, charcoal, and deep blues.”

Tonal Texture

Textured elements help provide visual interest and depth to a Scandinavian-style room, which can be fairly monochromatic.
