Open Spaces.

It is vital to know that Nordic style equals to no clutter. Make sure that your room includes white spaces with minimal objects. Show of white space freshens the soul giving the user a tranquil experience. When we say less objects, more space, we do not mean to empty your whole room leaving blank walls or floors. It mainly differs and can be shaped with your taste or capacity of the room. If you have a wide area to work on, adding an extra accessory or two will not be an issue if it fits the theme.

Opt for quality rather than quantity.

Lay out a budget and pick items and materials that are high in quality but also loaded in impact within your budget limits. Sometimes ordinary elements can be turned into decorative pieces that can change the atmosphere of the whole room. Craftsmanship is a very focal point and can be taken advantage of when it comes to unique appearances. You can make use of a well cut and designed wooden bookshelf or a shoe rack if you are not willing to spend money on it. Paint it, shape it, rearrange it and there! You already have some fine changes within your inspired design.

Imitate Nature.

An excellently structured Nordic theme should carry nature related elements. Nature palette, earth tones and wood are all properties that a Nordic themed room can portray. Within tones of nature or pastel shades make sure to add one or two pop up bright colors. On a white backdrop, these pop up colors will stand off bringing forward a mesmerizing interior scene. Here is an image of a living example from Eva and Col’s Townsville Home in Copenhagen.
