With wood being the main feature, try decorating with some modern furniture; wooden dining room chairs are very popular with a white frame. The main colours used to create the Scandinavian style consist of off whites, dove grey and tones of nature. These colours give a sense of softness to the home. Opening your house up to light and using whites is also a staple ingredient. And most importantly Scandinavian style is very liveable, so try to introduce some everyday things that you will use basing it around your chosen colour scheme.
