Be Inspired : Scandinavian Red Interior Ideas

Scandinavian style interiors over the festive season combine the elements of Winter Wonderland and Woodland Charm with the introduction of red tones. This trend is very minimalistic and fresh whilst cosy at the same time. Hints of red and wood will keep your home feeling rustic and warm.

Keep It Authentic with Scandinavian Styling

Keep your interior as authentic as possible with hand crafted ornaments such as felt tree decorations, wood ornaments and natural outdoor accessories such as pine-cones, twigs and branches. The key to this look is to try to keep a blank canvas whilst dressing up the area with small hand made elements including a touch of red, soft furnishings such as scatter cushions and throws in deep reds will help layer the room and keep it warm and welcoming.


Keep larger accessories such as furniture and lighting minimalistic by choosing white and cream finishes. However if you’re wanting to add more colour and warmth, oak wood furniture will work fine. Why not dress up a chandelier with some home made accessories? Use ribbon or string to hang each piece.

For a quick update of Scandinavian Style during the festive season, tie red ribbon into bows around bed posts and banisters. Pick some berries from your local park and place them on the mantel. Alternatively, you can place them as a centrepiece on the dining table. However, don't forget to keep out of reach of children and pets. Some berries can be poisonous!

The main pattern to look for when creating the Scandinavian Festive look has to be snowflakes. Think white snowflake silhouettes on strips of a red background. You can also use reindeer cut outs, heart and bird motifs for an extra Scandi vibe.
