The Scandic design approach focuses on both simplicity and beauty and perfectly balances functionality with aesthetics.

Occa Design applied the principles of this design ethos when creating our Scandic Townhouse Interior concept to create a contemporary design style which is light and bright whilst being cosy and welcoming.

Our townhouse property benefits from large windows offering fantastic natural light in addition to high ceilings, timber floors and period features typically seen in homes of the Victorian era. Our aim was to carefully unify the heritage style of the architecture alongside the very contemporary approach of the Scandinavian design ethos, creating both contrasts and blends between the two styles.

A variety of textures and a neutral colour palette of grey and muted red wall finishes would be layered with furniture and accessories creating tonal variations and a softness to the interiors which would be cost and inviting whilst maintaining the simplicity typically seen in Scandic design.

A distinct collection of furniture from a variety of Nordic design brands was brought together to create this Scandic Townhouse Interior concept, which embraces a simplistic and almost effortlessly casual outlook. Exposed, natural timbers are used across the furnishing, from coffee and dining tables to the sofa and accessories. Curves are used across the furniture shapes, lighting and accessories creating an inviting softness. The low heights of the furniture create contrast with the high ceilings accentuating the contemporary style. Natural or low sheen finishing of all timbers is in keeping with the Scandic ethos.

Accessories are carefully considered. Layers of tone and texture are thoughtfully applied to create a homely ambience against the simple backdrop. Wool and linen fabrics are used to create texture across a tonal palette of greys.

The epitome of beauty in simplicity, this Scandic Townhouse Interior concept perfects the principals of the Nordic design approach. Contemporary, inviting and relaxed, this showcase mixes form, function, and style with an effortless sense of relaxed grace.
