As you will see in this post, the Scandinavian design aesthetic can be an ideal choice for a young family. Because this particular style focuses on practicality and function but still leaves plenty of room for the whimsical colors and patterns that are so adorable in kids rooms it works perfectly for a young family. The natural wood that is so common in these styles is also a lovely choice that can be easy to clean and that goes with virtually anything should a family decide to change their overall interior as their child gets older.
Despite living in cold, dark countries, Scandinavians have mastered the art of designing comfortable yet functional spaces that make use of natural, local materials. Scandinavian design is based on three features: simplicity, utility, and beauty. If you’ve ever taken a look at Scandinavian homes, you’ll recognize the style: clean lines, lots of white and neutral colors, practical concepts that maximize space and function, and elegance highlighted by natural materials, cozy fabrics, and lots of light.
In the bathroom, the Scandinavian style means bright spaces with natural wood tones, soft fabrics, multi-function spaces, and clean lines. This example by Matarozzi Pelsinger Builders, via Decoraiso, shows a quintessential Scandinavian bathroom, all the way to the wooden box tub. Decorative elements are limited to two bright yellow flowers on the vanity.
Scandinavian décor is calm, peaceful and rather relaxing, I think, so this style is ideal for bathroom décor because a bathroom is a place where we are looking for some rest after a long day – having a bath or a hot shower. We’ve gathered a whole bunch of beautiful Scandinavian bathrooms, minimalist, elegant, stylish and with natural touches.
The traditional color scheme is black and white, of course but grey, navy and some colorful touches are also present. What I love about these Nordic spaces is lots of natural wood or stone – that brings a warm feel – and green plants that really turn your bathroom into a home spa. Enjoy the pictures below and get inspired! Scandinavian design can be a very good choice for families looking for a way to unify their home.
Not only does Scandinavian design encourage minimalism, it also has a playfulness about it with pops of color and fun objects that add personality to any room. The two homes featured here take full advantage of the mix-and-match Scandinavian look. Neither home is too buttoned up or so minimalist that you can’t imagine living there. Rather, they take the elements of the design style and make them liveable, meaning the houses will be sanctuaries for both the parents and the children.
