Mid-century Modern / Scandinavian interior design

Interiors inspiration: mid-century modern meets Scandinavian style

Not a real problem, but I’ve been struggling to label my interior design style. Recently there was a lightbulb moment when an interiors blog introduced me to the concept of “mid-century modern meets Scandinavian”. That’s it! But what exactly is it?

What is mid-century modern design?

Mid-century modern

This style covers design from the mid-1930s to mid-60s. Famous mid-century architects include Frank Lloyd Wright and Pierre Koenig, and product designers like Charles and Ray Eames were very popular (and, of course, remain so). Summed up by Houzz, the style “blends arresting shapes, graphic patterns and quirky accents”.

Thanks to IKEA we’ve been fans of this look for a long time, but it’s seemingly always growing in popularity—likely due to so many of us getting fed up of stuff. Scandi style “is characterised by simple lines and a clean aesthetic” (so says Houzz). It could feel stark but natural textures and potted plants bring life and a pop of colour.

Mid-century meets Scandinavian interior design

Mid-century / Scandi

An exclusively mid-century modern home might look too retro and Scandinavian minimalism is slightly OTT for someone who loves colourful clutter—but in combination these looks go so well together. White walls, bright accents, vintage furniture, bold patterns, natural details…my heart sings. What’s your design style?
