Soft minimalism is today’s Friday mood. This Scandinavian home oozes just this – soft minimalism. As a concept this type of minimalism design seems very contemporary and pleasing to the eyes. With its simple layout idea, subtle color palette and organic looking textures – it has become our new favorite talked about style.
The main reason why it is appealing to us is because of the more warmer version of the otherwise sometimes starker minimalism that we have seen a few years back. Being a Scandinavian born it is no wonder that the style that we lean for is warm and simplistic which is why this type of softer approach to a simplistic design is much more appealing.
Without going to deep in to our design talk, I hope that you enjoy this Friday mood here – this is definitely a place we would have a Swedish “Fredagsmys” in . And with that we say…happy weekend creative friends. If you have a few moments over during the weekend while enjoying a few extra hours in bed or while visiting your favorite local coffee shop – check out some more soft minimalism talk in our “Read And See List”. Oh and let us know if you have something cool to share.

Fredagsmys is a Swedish word for the concept of comfort and relaxation. It could be in your home, out in a restaurant or any other space. It has a different meaning to each Swede. It might involve the luxury of a glass of wine, candy, great food, company of your loved once, indulging in a book….. Well the imagination for what Fredagsmys means is endless and is all about ‘a feeling’.
