Bright, airy spaces where natural light fills the entire house is key to a Scandinavian style Singapore home.

In order for natural light to seep through, floor-to-ceiling windows, sheer curtains (usually made of linen) are often used.

This is an easy way to instantly make any small home, especially HDB BTO and condominiums look bigger!

Muted neutrals such as whites, greys and tans make up most of a Scandinavian home colour palette.

However, that doesn’t mean that a Scandi home is entirely free from colour – that is a common misconception!

Often, pops of colour are incorporated through accent pieces such as metallic pieces.

Light wood flooring, wood furniture and home accessories are largely spotted in Scandi homes. They complement whites very well and brings in a sense of calmness to any home as a natural element.

Tip: Go for beech, ash, and pine wood for a lighter tone. Such light wood flooring brightens up your space and makes it look bigger.
