If you are a homestay owner or simply love home decoration, this beautiful Scandinavian style will help you beautify your homestay during the pandemic.
Scandinavia is a sub-region in the Nordic region. The term (in local usage) covers the three kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Responding to the “enough is happiness, finding happiness in small things and respecting natural light” of the three countries above, Scandinavian style focuses on the balance, simplicity between function and aesthetics, as well as bringing closeness to nature.
If you are running a homestay business, during the hospitality period, you can learn about Scandinavian style to refurbish your homestay. In addition, this more time at home is also suitable for any of us to “F5” our living space.
1. Neutral colors
White, black, gray, wood color… are keywords for choosing color. Style is associated with culture and climate. Nordic countries are often cold climates, so other deep colors such as green moss, marble, graphite, pink-gray, etc. will evoke a more authentic “Korean” feeling.
2. Prioritize raw materials
Wood, stone, bamboo – rattan, leather, faux fur, gravel… are materials that need attention. With the Scandivian style, the wooden furniture should not be polished too much because it will lose its natural look. If wood is a relatively expensive material for you, you can pay attention to rattan or use white paint to cover furniture with similar / imitation wood surfaces.
3. Take advantage of natural light
Not only in Scandinavian interior design but in almost every current design style, light is always the most important factor. In this Nordic style, natural light is one of the highlighted elements. To take advantage and expand the natural light, homestay owners can use thin curtains, mirrors or increase the number of windows and skylights if possible.
4. Patterns, delicate textures
One of the most important criteria in Scandinavian style is simplicity. Therefore, checkered and plaid patterns are great suggestions for choosing decorative furniture.
If you don’t like textures in the interior, you can strengthen the space with black and white artwork, monochrome artwork.
5. Use decorations reminiscent of the Nordic region
Scandinavian is a style commonly found in Nordic countries, so the following basic pieces of furniture will give a highly evocative look:
- Sofa blankets, faux fur blankets, rattan baskets, deer head statues, faux leather panels…
- Ferns, dwarf pines, dry branches…
- Wooden bookcase, small sculpture…
Ceiling lights, table lamps … should have a simple design, round balls and yellow light will bring the feeling of “sun” in the house.
To save money and keep the Scandinavian spirit of simplicity, you should focus on some of the most iconic pieces of furniture, instead of buying a lot of similar items.
Beautifying the homestay during the epidemic season will be an effective way to handle the “waiting time” of returning visitors. Besides, Scandinavian style is one of the trendy styles up to now, making your homestay or home more attractive and trendy.
