Scandinavian Style focuses on clean, simple lines, minimalism, and functionality, and here you will see how to apply that to luxury bathrooms without sacrificing beauty!
The trend emerged in the early 20th century and shares some elements with Mid-Century Modern, once the Scandinavian Style favors bright and airy spaces. Although it has flourished throughout the Nordic countries, nowadays is seen everywhere in the globe. And you might be thinking that “minimalism” does not combine with “luxury” but Maison Valentina relies on the versatility of its design and, as such, the brand shows how to have this simple and clean look without losing the “wow” factor of sophisticated interiors.
#1 Neutral Designs
For Scandinavians, nature and time spent outdoors are very important and that is reflected in this style. Therefore, wood is a material to value in these homes. Using wood furniture in bathrooms is a must because the rough and neutral look of this material will give a tremendous personality to the decor. Also, Scandinavians don’t over-decorate because clean lines and simple joinery are important for this style. The Lagoon Vessel Sink has such power that combined with the wood vanity, the Crown Mirror, and the Diamond Bathtub in white, there is no need for any decor in this interior for it to be a luxury statement following the Scandinavian Style.
#2 Cozy Contrasts
Part of the appeal lies in how aspirational this specific design style feels. The feeling of a clean and warm design, that focuses on contrasts, whites, naturals, and black will make everyone feel relaxed and comfortable. Besides that, Scandinavian Style is designed to let in as much natural light as possible and to trap it there. Therefore rather than using paint colors, flooring, and furnishings that will absorb light, every element in an interior scheme is carefully curated to ensure that natural light bounces around the room. This Diamond Bathtub is perfectly placed to enjoy this wonderful view during a calming bath after a stressful day at work.
#3 Every Piece Has A Purpose
The reason why Scandinavian Style is so globally appreciated is that every element of the bathroom has a function and a purpose, so the room has a cluttered feeling to it. With the Darian Collection, besides the dazzling design offered, it is possible to have all the essential bathroom furniture combining and still being trendy. From the Darian Bathtub to the Darian Freestanding: make a bathroom shine with this white leather design that is as functional as beautiful!
#4 Use of Natural Elements
When it does come to color, warm tan tones are also popular thanks to the style’s reliance on natural wood pieces, and other nature-inspired colors like light browns or sand tones. Unnecessary decorative elements are not used for this style but good workmanship is important. Therefore it is the beauty and integrity of a piece that is important and Maison Valentina reinforces these values with its craftsmanship techniques used in this Symphony Vessel Sink and the Gold Onyx Surface. Concerning the Scandinavian Style, accessories should always be simple, authentic, and well-made!
#5 Monochromatic But Statement
In the Scandinavian Style, colors rely heavily on neutrals, most notably, bright whites. Bearing in mind the need for light, a color palette therefore in this scheme is generally white, with a touch of white and a splash of white to complete the look! That’s not to say the style is completely devoid of color though, just that the overall spaces tend to be monochromatic, with hues coming into play as accent pieces like this Symphony Bathtub with its white brass design. But don’t despair though if you love color! Any strong accent color can be used in artworks, accessories, or even upholstery like the Bourbon Armchair from Brabbu.
