The Nordic style originates from the architecture and design of Northern European countries: Sweden, Norway and Denmark lead this trend, which is also a way of life.

In countries with harsh winters and few hours of sunshine, quality and welcoming decor in light tones is almost a necessity. Nordic style decoration, also known as Scandinavian style, is characterized by its functionality, use of some furniture, but with a lot of design.

Natural wood, such as birch or beech, is very present in Nordic decor. Combined with fabrics made from natural fibers, such as cotton or linen, and in light tones, such as white, beige and earthy colors, they feel like home.

Nordic Style Decorating Tips

Crossline Furniture offers you many options to achieve a Nordic decor in your living room, kitchen or bathroom, from coverings to countertops, washbasins to shower trays:

- Choose a white or beige floor covering that evokes nature. If it has any veins, they should be fine and not overly marked. Silestone's "wood" colors are an excellent choice if you want to convey the warmth of wood.

- Create a functional and comfortable space. Save a few pieces of furniture, but all carefully selected. Remember the Scandinavian decor motto: “Beautiful things that improve your life”.

- Opt for light wood such as birch or beech and organic shapes without sharp edges. Continue with the beige and white range with your furniture.

- Select fabrics made from natural fibers, such as linen and cotton, with a touch of pastel colours – grey, light blue or even some makeup shades are good options.

- Enjoy a bright and silent space that invites you to stay at home. Light the fireplace and relax.
