- Predominantly white,
- Bright colours combine with the main white colour,
- Large mirrors,
- Principles of symmetry,

Their designs are a true representation of pared-back coziness, a myriad of textures and some clean, refined lines. They are beautiful works of art, but always so simple and subtle. Scandinavian designs are big on space, fewer accessories, natural light flowing in, and minimal furniture that serves some purpose.
This take on the interior style and design follow the “Bauhaus principles” that make use of fluid lines, all-white colour palettes, wide plank flooring and a strong focus on object proportions. The designer ensures that there is a use of playful accent colours, organic materials and gentle contours. Scandinavian designs are best described as modern, practical and uncomplicated.
