New Nordic Colour

Серия: "-"

Scandinavian style has long been associated with light, clean-lined spaces or pared-down monochrome interiors. However, in recent years the colour palette has seen a dramatic shift away from pale, cool shades and dramatic, darker and more characterful hues have begun to appear in stylish Nordic homes. Why have the Scandinavians suddenly welcomed colour in this way and how is it being used?As well as discussing the theories behind this shift and analysis of the most popular colour schemes, in New Nordic Colour interiors writer Antonia af Petersen offers expert advice on choosing colour for your home. She goes on to visit 10 Nordic homes that are divided into three different types. Dark Eclectic schemes feature deep, intense hues: dusk blue, storm grey, forest green and indigo, all inspired by the more dramatic tones of the Nordic landscape. Bold Accents focuses on the details that stand out and add character– think deep red berry bushes or the russet tones of the northern birch forests in Fall. Finally, in Majestic Pastels Antonia provides a glimpse into interiors decorated in strong but subtle pastels for a remarkably modern effect. These unique Nordic homes all have one thing in common—plain white walls and monochrome palettes have been replaced with rich, complex, and vibrant hues.
