We have a fresh North wind blowing through our interior, with wood veneer as the name part. The new Scandinavian interior design show the perfect mix between natural materials and the trend colours blue and brown. For the craft design applies less is more. Round shapes and rib structures are new in the kitchen. Wood veneer as wall and ceiling decoration, natural or oiled, brings atmosphere and strengthens the natural feeling. By adding more colours, exclusive atmosphere lighting and design gadgets will the kitchen overflow perfectly into the living room. The round table with a round pillar as leg is a new must-have, like the table Grand Palais by the Swedisch design label Asplund.
Create more contrast by combining this Scandinavian interior wood veneer with blue oiled wood veneer and materials in one colour. Bring these colours back in the styling by using it for textiles or accessories. Brown combined with blue is the new colour combination, which also works great with pastel blue details or for (coloured) glass.
BACK TO BROWN
A revival of brown in the interior does not mean that we go back to the seventies with this trend Nordic Breeze. Because of the sharp design of the kitchen has the colour brown a warm and modern effect in combination with light wood. The new brown palette reminiscent of the natural colours of nuts, chocolate, coffee and crème brûlée!

MAT, GLOSS and DETAILS
Create even more details and experiences in this Scandinavian interior by mixing mat optics with glossy materials and textiles. A brass faucet or sink, a glass door, room high voiles and upholstered room chairs provide more balance. Every detail in this interior is conceptually designed, that includes the styling with accessories. Use the same materials and colours for lamps, small furniture, tableware and glassware.
The Scandinavian trend creates atmosphere by using robust materials like concrete, marble and wood veneer. Functionality, spaciousness and a natural look are perfectly balanced.

In the trend Nordic Breeze are big surfaces decorated with materials that have the look of stone like marble, granite and concrete. Design a kitchen island of natural stone as a monumental element in the room and bring atmosphere and warmth with upholstered furniture and rugs of different trendy colours.
Scandinavian design is famous for their iconic classics, so they should not lack in the Nordic Breeze interior. Architect Arne Jacobsen is of course the figurehead and his famous designs he made in 1960 for the SAS Royal hotel in Copenhagen, like the Egg, Swan and Drop chair are and stay timeless and stylish. So the re-introduction in January 2018 of the ‘forgotten’ fauteuil Pot was good news. It’s the perfect lounge chair that fits every interior; from hotel lobby to restaurant and from luxurious villa to apartment. This chair is available in a prefect series of trend colours and perks up every interior without making it too fashionable (so temporary).

By combining wood veneer and surface materials with optics of stone, with furniture and accessories made of real massive wood and marble strengthens the natural atmosphere. The new rule is to pick the marble with the most lines, the wood veneer with a clear wood grain and granite with a strong stone motif. Add blue as an eye-catcher.
