Black & White Scandi Trend - Chic & effortless ways to add it to your living spaces

Move over all white, the black and white Scandi trend has the interior design stamp of approval as one of the hottest design trends! There's just something about this simple aesthetic home décor trend that draws us in every time. While Scandinavian design is chic and stylish, perfecting this sought-after home décor trend isn’t as easy as it looks. Here are some tips on how you can introduce the black and white Scandi trend into your home in a way that is both effortless and chic.

1. Use storage as décor statements

Because of the functionality aspect of Scandinavian design, using storage pieces that double as stylish décor items is a great way to introduce this design trend into your living spaces. Basket accessories for wood, blankets and magazines are all great ideas to achieve this look!

2. Introduce botanicals & greenery

Scandinavian design is known for its chic simplicity and therefore doesn’t involve a whole lot of bright colors. However, if you’re looking to brighten up a space without sacrificing the Scandinavian style, plants can do just the trick. By introducing greenery in the form of big leafy style pot plants, monster plants, palms and succulent pot plants you’re able to bring an earthy element to the already natural look. Botanicals and greenery can be introduced by simply placing them around the room, hanging them or adding a stand of greenery at different heights. Pairing it with beautiful wooden accents like storage racks, coffee tables and dining tables enhances the look that much more.

3. Add tan leather accent chairs

Tan is an interior design staple colour that will never go out of style. Not only does it add an earthy pop of colour to your living space, it provides the perfect complimentary break of colour in your white and black Scandi design.

4. Herringbone pattern rugs to compliment your Scandi design

While wall-to-wall carpeting is a definite no in Scandinavian design, Herringbone pattern rugs are perfect for adding some much-needed texture into your living spaces.

5. Wood storage accents & natural materials

Traditional Scandinavian style values bright, airy spaces, making light wooden accents and storage units a great addition to any black and white Scandi design. From storage racks to kitchen organizers, wood furniture pieces, table tops and work surfaces virtually every facet of your home can be Scandinavian-level chic. At Vintage-etc we custom-make a variety of furniture pieces to suite your exact style and size requirements.

6. Introduce relaxed cluster black & white hanging lights at different heights

Scandinavian interiors are renowned for their high/low infusion. Introducing black and white hanging lights hung at different levels is therefore a great way to incorporate it into your Scandi design. Visit our Made to Order page to custom design your perfect dining table to create this chic Scandi design living space.

7. Add darker features and accent walls to spice up your Scandi design

Introducing a dark accent wall, wallpapers with bold botanical patterns and darker shades, or painting your ceiling black are all great ways to shift your chic Scandi design over to the darker side.

8. Introduce glass & steel room dividers & black windowpanes into your space

Due to the rise in popularity of open-plan living, introducing statement-making partitions and black windowpanes into modern spaces has become a sought-after interior design trend. It also introduces an industrial edge and contemporary feel into your home.
