Finding That Sanctuary Space

I feel that there is something so refreshing with looking at Scandinavian pastel interior design spaces.

To me usually this means, simple design with “less is more” elements. Combine this with sparingly pops of pastel colours throughout the space – and you have my dream Scandinavian pastel interior design look.

The key here is to add pastel colours throughout a space while keeping it sophisticated and fresh.

To accomplish this it is easier to pick a whitish (neutral) wall base. Also flooring should be the same throughout the whole space.

It is also important to keep furniture and decoration within same lines. An advice is also to avoid too much of pattern. The result you are aiming for is, a simple yet “minimalism soft colour feel”.

The key is to give the space a calming yet fresh look while playing around with matching pastel colours

Below you can see an apartment that I truly love. This space sums up the dreamy Scandinavian Pastel interior design look that I would easily go for in a space.

Pastel blue cabinet combined with the rusted looking browns gives the space a soothing yet fresh look. This is a colour combination that also fits small spaces especially when the walls are painted in white.

Why are Pastel Interior Design so nice?

  • Less saturated colours: Pastel interior design colours gives a more calming and soothing feeling.
  • A sense of sophistication: Using these colour due to their calming nature gives a space an opportunity to still be colourful yet have a sophisticated feel.
  • A feeling of “spring” and rebirth: This spring feel reminds us of a “new start” and with that usually boosts the energy level.

Pops of pastels can be found throughout the living room. The Scandinavian “less is more” approach combined with the injection of small dozes of colours gives the space a warm yet fresh feel.
