The Nordic style is a decorative style that has won the admiration of millions of people. It is relatively modern if we compare it with other styles such as rustic or classic, which have been around for centuries and still resist despite the change in trends.
In this article we are going to speak quite well of the Nordic style, also known. More than anything because we will mention some of the advantages it offers when decorating our home. Do you want to know them?
Clean and organized
It is a good starting point. This style of decoration allows us to maintain order and cleanliness more easily than in other styles, since the simple is what prevails, and that makes the rooms are clear. It is not as simple as minimalism , but we could say that they share certain characteristics that make it a style that is not only pleasing to the eye, but has also earned the practical label.
Ideal to enlarge spaces
Any interior designer who aims to enlarge a space visually is clear. The Nordic style is one of the great allies of those who have the difficult mission of making the most of the available square meters. Furniture with soft lines , white as the main color, diaphanous spaces … These are particularities that make it possible to take advantage of small apartments.
Easy to combine
When you opt for a decorative style in particular, you know that you are deciding something more than the type of furniture you will buy. You are also defining in a certain way the colors you are going to use, and in that sense the Nordic style is a relief because everything starts from a base of neutral tones that allow us to play with brush strokes of color without losing the head. The star combination, it must be said, is what mixes white and wood , which personally makes us crazy.
It is easy to combine in terms of colors, but also in terms of decorative styles is concerned, as it is quite tolerant when it comes to embrace other looks like the industrial or ethnic, something that does not happen with other styles that are more closed.
Simplicity, yes, but also warmth
It is true that minimalism can become too cold. However, the Nordic style is not so radical in that sense and is fortunate to have a material that is the warmest of all: wood. We see it in the furniture, in the parquet, in the ceiling beams … even in wall coverings! It is a material that gives you many possibilities and that brings you closer to nature , something that especially those who live in the big city value.
An economical option
Posts to talk about advantages, we consider that we must also refer to one of the issues that we also value when deciding on a decorative style or another. Who wants everything in gold and opts for a very ornate decoration should know that you will have to invest enough money to complete all the rooms. Quite the opposite occurs in the Nordic style, since the ” less is more ” prevents you from having to buy more than the account. In addition, we must not forget that it is a style so widespread that there are many stores that sell products that fit perfectly, which implies that prices have dropped considerably in recent years.
Nordic style Bedroom
White. It is the clear protagonist of the Nordic spaces, because in the countries of northern Europe have less daylight hours and this color helps multiply natural light.
How to use it: it works as a base, that is, on walls, ceilings and a good part of the furniture. From the white the rest of the color ranges are introduced.
Nordic Living Room
Green. In this type of environments where natural textures predominate, we can not fail to introduce certain touches of green to highlight their connection with nature. Avoid shrill or too flashy tones.
How to use it: in addition to the plants, it also adds green details in textiles and in a vase on the coffee table in the living room.
Nordic Dining Room
- Brass and copper. The Nordic style is reinventing itself. The appearance of materials such as copper or brass is increasingly common, as in the case of this series of lamps for the dining table that we see in the image.
- How to use it: normally, brass and copper are used in pieces of furniture such as lamps or in small decorative elements. You can combine them with marble, material also very present in the Nordic environments.
Nordic style Kitchen
Light wood. The light wood – beech, American ash, pine or birch – is essential in a traditional Nordic space. Beware of mixing wood tones: it is preferable that they are very different from trying to combine two similar ones.
How to use it: light wood can not only appear on the floor or in a vertical covering, but also in other elements of the home. For example, as we see in this image of a Nordic-style house in Palma de Mallorca, on the kitchen countertop, combining with the legs of the stools.
Finally, in the Nordic style white is the protagonist color. From here, and without forgetting the clear wood as indispensable material, we can choose to add rose quartz tones for a more romantic bedroom and blue stitches for the living room. If we are a bit daring, we will try some of the most trend materials, such as copper; and always, always, we will finish off the decoration of the space with a plant that brings nature closer to our home.
