There is a lot of great advice out there on how best to design your Scandinavian home retreat. However, after scouring the internet, there seems to be little advice on what to avoid when designing your Scandinavian paradise.
So, for all the Scandi-lovers out there, here are some common mistakes to avoid when creating the décor for your Scandinavian home.
1. Clean It UP!
Clean floors are the centerpiece to your Scandinavian living space. Leave those floors as they are and show off their natural beauty. Alas, if you must add a rug to that gorgeous wooden footpath, make sure it’s simple and elegant. The point is to avoid drawing the eye, so the rest of your décor can shine.
The original Scandi color pallet. But feel free to mix things up and add variations of cream, beige, grey, and the occasional pastel accent. Where people go wrong here is the color distraction. They deviate from the origins of Scandinavian design when color begins to take over and the smooth, relaxing hues lose focus.

3. The Wood Way
Use wood to its fullest potential in your scandi décor. Use it anywhere and everywhere. Add it to the ceiling for some warmth. Add it to the walls in décor and frames. Just remember that Scandinavian décor encourages it, so don’t be shy with The Wood Way.
The natural wood version of the North Hem Nico Dining Table is the perfect wood accept for your dining area.
Accessorize in the most minimalist fashion possible. Remove all clutter. Don’t try to be stylish, try to be simple and clean. Much like overdoing color, many overdo accessories in their space. One is enough to draw the eye. And sometimes the most intriguing décor is none at all.
5. Flow Your Home
Consider the layout of your home. If furniture is in the way you’re inhibiting the natural flow of the room and should consider changing things around. Sharing a history with other regions of the world; a proper layout can create flow in the home and in the body.
Start your flow off right with this Ceni Grey Sofa. It’ll pull the focus of any room and create the perfect Scandinavian centerpiece.
6. Let The Light In!
Natural light that is. Open the windows, pull back the curtains, and let the sunlight fill your home. Opt for open windows over lampshades to give your home a brighter, airier look and feel. It benefits you as much as your home.

Bringing the outdoors-in is the true mark of a Scandinavian décor aficionado. In the states, however, cacti are making a huge impact on the indoors. Pick the less prickly ones for your indoor garden cuz you know you’ll wanna touch ‘em.
In design, art and centerpiece; feathers have secretly wandered into homes across the western world creating quite a stir. Their delicate design and wispy nature turn any room into a modern paradise.
6. Calendar Wall Art
