In Scandinavian-style homes, all rooms seem to share the same design. However, they are all unique and they each have distinctive characteristics. The kitchen, for example, is a very interesting space to analyze from the perspective of this style. The kitchen in Scandinavian homes has an airy and simple décor but it’s also functional and practical. Given the fact that the kitchen is primarily a functional space although in a lot of modern homes it doubles as a social area, a Scandinavian design suits it well.
The deep wood grain against your lighter cabinets will make a bigger impact than you think. Countertops can be the most expensive purchase for a kitchen, excepting the appliances. So what do you do when you only have enough in the budget for the expensive counter choice on the cabinets? You resort to butcher block on the island.
Tile backsplashes, geometric patterns and textiles – these things will help you to create such a kitchen. And, of course, mid-century modern furniture and lamps will be the base of your space. Get inspired! If we take a look around in the houses we visit, we can see different kinds of homes and kitchens, each with their own style and design, bigger or smaller, prettier or arranged by a designer or by the owner.
In direct contrast to the previous colour scheme, we now have a cool palette. You can’t deny how elegant and classy this kitchen looks. When going for a frosty feel it’s best to use highlights rather than an overall shade of pale blue. Pastel colours have been running riot over the past year or so. From mint green, to candy pink, to luscious lemon; these shades are enough to make your mouth water. I don’t know about you, but I can just picture a doting mother and her daughter baking cupcakes in a kitchen like this.
