Tropical Modernity: How to add a contemporary twist to the beloved Scandinavian styleWritten by Commune
The Scandinavian chic look is usually characterised by its stunning simplicity and functionality, utility that fails to compromise aesthetics. Soft neutral tones present in many Scandi-inspired designs often balance out contemporary furniture pieces for a softer and more inviting look. Take the classic style up a notch with our own special twist - with a hint of tropical modernity.
1. Incorporate fresh materials. Yes, the Scandinavian look is all about soft wooden tones, but add a twist by incorporating complementary textures and materials. The Flint Console Table’s light oak palette pairs elegantly with a rattan panel, a fresh and sophisticated interpretation of the Scandinavian trend with just a hint from the tropics.
2. Complement neutral tones with metallics. Add metallic accessories in the form of thin wire storage or stationary boxes for a stylish and yet practical touch. For an extra touch, incorporate flecks of gold or brass with homeware to complement the Scandi neutrals.
3. Use warm wood tones. Sepia tones and bright wood tones are often popular in Scandinavian themed homes. With their light touch, they make any room feel sunny and bright. The Flint collection’s light golden oak material will instantly light up a room, a celebration of warm, sunny days.
