Scandinavian Style Interior Design – Beautiful Versatility

January 27th 2009 in Home Decor, Interior Design

In my recent reading of various interior design blogs and magazines, I have found a rather modern design style that is becoming quite popular with many professional interior designers: Scandinavian.

This style is incredibly popular among kitchen designers in particular, and I can’t help being attracted to the warmth, and versatility of this design myself. This design style does have many variations, and is generally best described as “modern” and “eclectic” – these may seem somewhat opposing in some ways, never the less, this adequately encompasses the array of design styles known as Scandinavian.

Being in the woodworking industry, one of the first things I noticed about this style was the common use of Wide Plank Flooring, even with the bold contrast in styles – from cozy rustic to clean modern – the Wide Plank Flooring proves a beautiful accent, and seems to be a core component of Scandinavian design.

Enjoy several photos of this truly versatile, and thoroughly beautiful interior design.

I’m a US born citizen who has visited Denmark with my husband (a Dane) several times. I am fascinated by their ability to mix simple understated modern with what I always thought of as very country (wide plank pine floors). As hard as I try, I cannot seem to come up with a plan to duplicate what many of them seem to do so effortlessly in their homes. Thank you for the pictures and for showing how beautiful and calming a simple design can be.

I recently had the pleasure of sawing lumber from reclaimed antique Heart Pine beams, and milling it into wide plank flooring for a client’s renovation project in an historic Nashville home. The home is over one hundred years old, and some of the original Heart Pine plank flooring had to be replaced due to water [...]
