Scandinavian design is one of homeowners ‘and designers’ favorites for its beauty, simplicity, and usefulness. You can see that the style of Scandinavian houses is geared towards clean lines and functionality. The overall impression is just flawless and elegant. We’ve already featured some Scandinavian rooms, but it seems we can’t get enough of this look. With that we have put together a new list of living rooms on this topic for you, but this time some pastel colors have been used in the rooms. The combination of pastel tones and Scandinavian design makes the overall look of the living area very impressive indeed.

There are several factors to consider when designing a home with a Scandinavian theme. Aside from the clean lines, the use of light is important.

Scandinavian rooms are bright and usually use earthy, muted colors and minimal ornamentation. But it won’t ruin the look if you try to add some colors. Most of the time, interior designers choose to use pastel colors instead of the bold colors to preserve the simplicity of the space. Although pastel colors are light, they can add a cute and warm look to a home.

Let’s take a look at the living rooms below.
