If a monochromatic look seems a little too intense for your home, there’s an easy way to brighten up the space while adding more visual interest: Just add natural materials such as wood, stone or metal. Choose one or incorporate a variety.
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.
