Scandinavian interior lighting design has a reputation for being simple, practical and – above all – beautiful. If you are looking for ways to capture the stylish Scandi lighting look in your home, keep reading for some top tips.
1. Keep it simple
Keep it simple and get closer to nature with these beautiful bamboo lightshades. Scandinavian lighting is all about keeping light soft, muted and inviting – something these slatted lightshades are perfectly designed for.
If you’re a lover of Scandinavian lighting design, chances are you’ve seen the trend for bare bulb lighting. These beautifully simple pendant sets work perfectly with oversized vintage bulbs. As an added bonus, the generous 3 metre twisted fabric cable allows you to get as creative as you dare with the placement. These pendants look great when they are installed alongside each other hanging at different heights
2. Express your individuality
Don’t confuse simple design with boring design. Just because it has a reputation for being practical and functional, doesn’t mean that Scandinavian lighting design has to be dull – far from it. This silver-grey bamboo lightshade is a wonderful alternative to the naked bamboo shade and will catch the light beautifully when lighting your home.
We love this brass wire light; it’s certainly a statement piece. And thanks to the elegant black fabric cable and matching ceiling rose, it ticks all of the Scandi lighting boxes – it’s simple, practical and beautiful.
3. Embrace a simple colour palette
In Scandinavian design, you’ll often find that the colour palette is very simple and light. Light blues, greys, yellows and pastel shades are popular, and tend to work well when incorporated with bold flashes of colour. The classic simplicity of this pendant light and its light blue finish make it a perfect choice for anyone hoping to channel some Scandi-inspired design into their home.
4. Incorporate glass
Contemporary glass lighting fixtures work brilliantly in Scandinavian-inspired interior design schemes. The combination of smooth, clear class and shiny satin nickel will complement the trademark Scandi wooden floors and understated white walls in any room. So, whether you are finding lights for your kitchen, living room or study – this Hoxton pendant light will fit in perfectly anywhere.
If you’re a fan of clean lines and simple, uncomplicated designs, you will love these glass pendant lights. When choosing the bulbs for the pendants you can get as creative as you like with these vintage filament bulbs.
