Basic pieces in black, like this chair and the interesting floor lamp are great additions to any room where you want to create a black and white color scheme. Both pieces are naturals to fit into a Nordic-inspired space and are super functional — a hallmark of Scandinavian furnishings.
While a neutral palette and monochrome decor help create a relaxing nordic vibe, a pop of color adds brightness and vibrancy to an otherwise restrained space. And for Scandinavians, what other color would they choose but blue? Whether it reminds them of the sea or the azure sky above, all shades of blue can work in a nordic-inspired room. Bright cobalt, sky blue and light powder blue are among the hues that are commonly chosen. Here, a periwinkle blue, tall-backed sofa is paired with an upholstered piece that can serve as a seat or a coffee table, thanks to the pale wood inset.
The living room is also a dining room and it’s very large and airy. It has white walls and oak parquet flooring. The living room is also connected to the balcony that can be used as an extra room during warm months. The bedroom has large windows overlooking the courtyard and it’s spacious enough to accommodate a double bed and an office, reading corner or workspace. Overall, this is a vintage-modern apartment, very cozy and inviting.
Many different colors were combined but they were beautifully balanced. Each room or space has its own palette of colors. For example, the kitchen and dining room area are probably the brighter spaces in the house. The kitchen is mostly white with black and ocher insertions. Then the space continues into the living room where an entire wall was painted ochre. It was combined with turquoise and blue accents and a brown sofa and the contrast is quite beautiful.
