Scandinavian inspired interiors remain a favourite style all over the world, and Malaysia is no exception. Many homes inspire to create their own Scandinavian living room due to its recognisable minimal colour palettes, clean lines and distinctive “no-frills” furniture concept.
Scandinavian design is often characterised by simplicity, minimalism and functionality that’s unified into one living space.
In a Scandinavian living room, you will normally find lots of natural light combined with soft hues such as taupe, ivory and sage to nurture the home’s surroundings for a warm and inviting retreat without compromising on comfort and function.
