There's a new design style in town and we think that you're gonna dig this hybrid just as much as we do. Introducing Scandinavian Boho, an effortless aesthetic that doesn't feel cluttered but instead is warm, inviting, and more importantly, interesting.
Get this unique combo right by taking inspiration from these eight spaces that have already mastered Scandinavian boho style, plus a few tips on how to implement the look in your own home.
1. Don't go overboard on accessories.
Scandi interiors tend to be more on the minimal side so you should aim to keep your furnishings and accessories to a minimum, with only a few boho pieces thrown into the mix to create a cozy ambience. Mallory of Reserve Home has created the perfect compromise in her living room with a bohemian rug and earthy-hued soft furnishings.
2. Focus on natural materials.
Both Scandinavian and bohemian styles celebrate natural materials with light wood finishes — rattan and cane are the big hitters to look out for. This minimal dining room designed by Olivia from Livvy Land incorporates them all with statement jute pendant lights, steam bent dining chairs, and a sophisticated oak dining table.
3. Invest in classic pieces.
4. Use natural tones.
5. Add a pop of color.
While white is alright, a typical Scandinavian boho design will also incorporate a burst of color alongside graphic patterns. This dining room designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel for Bri of Designlovefest shows you exactly how it's done with teal dining chairs, clean lines, and natural textures ... ahh, a recipe for relaxation.
6. Find clever storage solutions.
Making sure things are tidy and organized will keep your home from looking cluttered. We know, it's not easy, but this will make all the difference when it comes to creating a Scandinavian boho aesthetic. Follow the lead of Sarah from A House in the Hills and purchase double-duty furniture that also acts as storage for a clean look that can handle a healthy dose of pattern and color.
7. Style to perfection.
Bohemian design is all about bringing trinkets, mementos, and inspiration into your home, so be sure to remember this when it comes to Scandinavian boho styling — it's all about balance. Robert and Christina of New Darlings got it just right in their son's nursery, tying in cute wooden toys with pretty storage and a pop of greenery.
