Less is truly more when it comes to modern spaces. In this school of design, rather than thinking of negative space as something empty that needs to be filled, it’s seen as an active detail in creating a minimalist aesthetic. The key to pulling off this look is making every design element count.
Modern Nordic (above) is influenced by Danish hygge (cosiness) and Swedish lagom (simplicity and restraint). Use this look to create a calm retreat away from today’s frenzied technology and social media-dominated world. Combine architecturally clean-lined pieces – such as the Linea range of wall-mounted cupboards from bathstore – with soft, uncomplicated colours and organic, natural materials such as wood and stone.
