Danish Interior Design Ideas – Nordic Simplicity
Danish designers are renowned worldwide for their ideas and projects, from furniture to clothing, shoes and toys. Their creativity is also reflected in home interiors that are simple, functional and comfortable, a combination of modern and traditional elegance. Below are some images that speak for themselves about Danish interior design ideas.
In general, Scandinavian style homes have interiors painted in light colors, usually white and are furnished so as to create the impression of space. The photos below are taken in a vacation home on the Danish island of Zealand. The first one shows a spacious kitchen with white furniture, well integrated chromatically. White is broken up by grey pine floor, brown wicker works and the green flowers by the window while modern household appliances come in contrast to other artisan parts used in kitchen, such as the chopper. The extractor fab is also cleverly camouflaged under a white hood.
At the end of the kitchen is a dining room which follows the same white color pattern. Wooden chairs and potted flower again break the white chromatic monotony.
The bedroom in the attic is of a rare beauty and simplicity in equal measure. With plenty of natural light pouring in from two sides windows, the room has the allure of a space full of intimacy. Only discrete cabinet and a lamp decorate the room.
The living room is also a space without limits. High ceilings, abundant natural light and simple yet functional furniture outline a cozy room in which the guests can cater to their hobbies or they can simply relax.
The next picture showcases another example of Danish interior design ideas in which seats designed 60 years ago by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen and which are now still in vogue make up the central element. Some say that the popular 7 series dining chairs are the bestselling design in history.
The next example also revolves around the Wishbone Chair which is a classic mic-century Danish Modern classic designed by Hans Wegner in 1949. It’s a versatile dining chair that works with a variety of table styles. Again, the room is simple, flooded with natural light and works in wood up and down.
