The essence of Scandinavian interior design is found in the Modernist movement where form follows function. So, simplicity is at the heart of this Scandinavian dining room mood board.
Thre is not a lot of ornamentation in Scandinavian design, so material, shape, texture, pattern and line are key.
These are the interior design elements I focused on to create this Scandinavian dining room buyable inspo board.
The Focal Pieces
At the centre of this Scandinavian dining room mood bord is the Kiruna dining table. It’s the clean lines and tapered legs of this piece that make it a good piece to build around.
Then I added two seating options both with pattern, and texture. The dining chair has a rattan seat and the leather bench has a weave pattern. Subtlety including pattern in a neutral space ensures warmth, depth and interest.
The Complementary Pieces
I like the buffet because of it is generous in proportion and achieves interest through the panelling on the façade. Like the bench and the dining chairs, this simple pattern, just adds a little something special to this piece.
Scandinavian interior style demands natural textures, so I included a white jute rug with a geometric pattern. By repeating patterns, we make sure the space is cohesive.
I also like the substantial pendant light, although simply white, it is the shape and size that make this piece interesting in the mix.
Finally, to round of this buyable inspo board I added a timber wall clock with white hands and a highly textured ceramic dining set, which I think gives this Scandinavian dining room mood board a homely feel.
My Favourite Piece
Of all the pieces in this Scandinavian buyable inspo board, the leather bench is my favourite piece because it’s so versatile. It can be used in a dining room but also at the end of a bed in a Scandinavian styled bedroom setting.
