Scandinavian interior design books

A friend of mine asked a while ago if I could compile a list of Scandinavian interior design books. In fact I must admit, while I do love books (dreaming of a library one day) I haven’t bought too many design books lately. Both due to the waste of paper but also trying to save up some money for that dream house (and lifestyle). With that being said..there is something magical about the tactile experience of holding a design book.

And with fall approaching and I am trying to have some computer free days during the weekend it could be about time that I look for some new design books and particularly a Scandinavian book that reminds me of the design stories from home.

Here are some of the Scandinavian Interior design books that I am looking at:

Scandinavian Interior Design Books List

  • Scandinavian Dreaming
  • Scandinavian Style At Home
  • The Scandinavian Home
  • Simple Matters
  • Northern Delights


    Books about way of living in Scandinavia
  • The Little Book Of Hygge
  • North: How to live Scandinavian
  • Lagom: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life

If you wish to skip seeing our book list but you are interested in the philosophy of Scandi design then we have recently created a Scandinavian interior design guide for you. Filled with stunning photos, tips and tricks on how to design the Scandinavian way and the philosophy behind it.

Scandinavian Dreaming

Why this book?

Dreaming of a way of living in Scandinavia with beautiful images as the reviews promised makes me curios about this book.

It looks like the book goes over a few different sub styles within the Scandinavian design style. Some more classic interiors, also some bohemian inspired interiors and also minimalistic spaces.

Scandinavian Style At Home

Author: Thames and Hudson / Allan Torp

Why this book?

I am curios about this book to see how blogger Allan Torp perceives and communicates the Scandinavian interior design style.

Since this book focuses on having a guide room by room it could be a good way of segmenting inspiration. And perhaps act as an inspiration for my up and coming bedroom redo at home.

The Scandinavian Home

Author: Niki Brantmark

Why this book?

I am a big fan of Niki Brantmark way of wording things. I also like the way she portrays the home of Scandinavian people on her blog. Light, homely and with a heart. And with that I think in fact this might be my first purchase.

Simple Matters

Author: Jenny Mustard

Why this book?

To me this book is the perfect “looking for inspiration” type of book. Covering more than just the interior spaces but also the philosophy and mindset of Scandinavian living.

Just up my alley for a Sunday kind of book.

Northern Delights

Author: Emma Fexeus

Why this book?

One of the most popular Scandinavian interior design books out there by the Swedish interior design blogger Emma Fexeus. In fact she was one of the first bloggers out there writing and showcasing Scandinavian interior design to the world.

After all these years this book have yet not landed on my book shelf but would love to own a copy one day. The book focuses on promoting local young talent and sustainability efforts as well.
