10 Chic and Stylish Scandinavian Home Office Ideas
Scandinavian interior designs exude light, neutral palettes, and simplistic furniture with functionality in mind. The clean, crisp atmosphere works wonders in an office environment where ideas and creativity flow freely.
The Scandinavian culture loves to get everything off of the floor and up on the walls. It’s a great space saver and looks aesthetically pleasing. These magazine racks are a perfect way to organise books and paperwork as well.
A pop of colour! With so many white and other neutral palettes, a pop of colour does for an office space. If you stick with just one bright color throughout, it can really tie the whole room together.
A cork board wall! This wall is multi purposed and can serve as a calendar, decor wall, place for sticky reminders, photo holders, etc. This is also a great use of the area utilising floor to ceiling wall space.
Comfy and leisurely chairs. In an office, your chair is high on the priority list of nice things. It’s the central hub of where you spend your most of your day. Plush, luxurious chairs such as this one are utilised a great deal in Scandinavian design.
Black. Black is often used in Scandinavian design to balance the lightness of the rest of the room. It can highlight a feature wall and make it stand out in a sea of whites and greys.
Maximising storage is paramount in Scandinavian design. Since space is usually limited, using drawers such as this one and a desk with under storage can go along way. The shelves also add additional storage space when not used for decor.
Light, white and bright. Light is so important in creating a positive work space. Clean white spaces are often seen in Scandinavian culture. Using different shades of whites, off whites, and eggshells can create a dimensional look if the white seems overwhelming.
Lighting is always important for a work space. Lighting that is functional and aesthetically pleasing is always a good option.
Utilising storage. Scandinavians are amazing at utilising small spaces within a workplace. The corner shelves in this picture are just one example of using space that might normally have been overlooked.
Bold rugs! Scandinavians are known for their bold, exciting rugs. In such neutral spaces, rugs can add boldness as a beautiful statement piece in the centre of any room. Many have geometric shapes such as the rug pictured here.
