Here at Fyffe Design, we are more frequently being asked to design Scandinavian Themed Homes. Renowned for their simplicity, utility and beauty, Scandinavian Home centre around warm functionality, clean lines, understated elegance with a focus on flawless craftsmanship.
The key design is to maximise light at every turn with large flooring spaces free of clutter and ornamentation. The addition of raked ceilings and floor to wall windows makes any small area feel bright, airy and spacious.
The Swedish originally designed their homes to be very Eco Friendly, with high performance glazing, proper insulation for ceilings and walls and underfloor heating. In the harsh Australian climate these styles of homes work amazingly well.
Another feature which is complementary to the Australian lifestyle is a connection with the outdoors so often you will find a balcony or terrace which are made from timber decking, used for entertaining and BBQs.
Cluttered spaces are a big nono in a Scandinavian home. Keeping things organised and clutter-free is essential to creating an ambience of simplicity and a visually relaxing environment. To achieve a streamlined look, creative and clever solutions for storage is the key factor.
So next time you are wandering around Ikea and dreaming about your perfect home to put your Scandinavian furniture in, call Fyffe Design.
