Nordic-inspired shelves: Dress your walls Scandinavian


In love with Nordic design? If you are, your furniture, floors and textiles may be classic examples of its simplicity and functionality, but what happens to your walls? How do you find Nordic-inspired shelves that match the rest of your décor to create the calm and serene atmosphere epitomised by this style? In today’s post, we offer some tips and tricks to help you add finishing touches to your walls, with Nordic-inspired shelves.

Two main features of Scandinavian style are its use of light and its sobriety. The light, airy atmosphere of Nordic interiors is achieved through the use of white and neutral colours for walls, while sobriety is achieved by removing all non-functional and non-essential elements. Before acquiring Nordic-inspired shelves, think about how you are going to use them and what you want to put on them: avoid using them as simple, easy surfaces for random, untidy objects. Order and tidiness are essential if you want to create the serene atmosphere typical of Scandinavian interiors.
