The choice of the colours and patterns it is always very crucial. Often homeowners are afraid to test different palettes and they end up choosing mainly white and black. Although I like a minimalist style, as a child, I was always fascinated by colours and I would use them when trying to memorize something at school. I believe in the colour's therapy as colours can influence our mood.
Simple, minimalist, functional and cozy are the words I use the most when describing the
contemporary Scandinavian style.
Before moving to Stockholm in 2015, I was already familiar with the most iconic nordic design brands and how in Northen Europe, with its long and dark winters, interiors play a crucial role in the daily life.
For me, what represents the most the Scandinavian design are the symbolic pieces of the 60s, years where we assisted to the birth of products such as: the Danish Wegner Chair by Hans Wegner, the Tulip Chairs and Tulip Table by Eero Saarinen, the Artichoke light pendant by Poul Henningsen, not to mention the popular Egg Chair by Arne Jacobsen.
While strolling around the streets of Stockholm, the capital of Scandinavia, I discovered so many new trends and a new way of thinking and creating interiors. Nordic interior design is more innovative and curios to experiment new things, with still a total respect, for what has been already done in the past.
