We recently got to work on a whole home remodel (#kennyreno) with a Minneapolis couple who loved the Scandinavian aesthetic. Can you say dream design project? This ever-popular style utilizes natural materials, neutral colors, and splashes of marble contrast. While the entirety of this Scandi-style home turned out amazing, we felt their kitchen was a true testament to the Scandinavian home design. In today’s blog post, we’re going to share exactly how we achieved the Scandi-style and how you can get the same look!

Inspo Board

When it comes to designing kitchens in specific, creating a Scandinavian-inspired space typically involves layering on accents of warm wood in the forms of cabinetry and flooring. Our team was inspired by two-tone cabinets, which bring a level of interest to an otherwise minimal space. We started playing around with a dreamy sage green color of cabinetry which pairs beautifully with natural, neutral tones. Overall, we were inspired by a streamlined look with pops of chic touches to accomplish the Scandinavian aesthetic in this modern Minneapolis home.

Selection Board

To infuse nordic charm in this fresh white space, we opted for a textured ceramic tile by Bedrosians that we absolutely love. “The Cloe Collection is glazed ceramic wall tile characterized by its brilliant colors, smooth gloss finish and interesting variations in hues and tones” (Bedrosians). We opted for eye-popping touches of satin gold + brass found in the hardware and light fixtures to add visual interest. The overall functionality of the space is key to the Scandivancian aesthetic, so the use of exposed wood shelving allows the clients to tie in fresh plants, trinkets, and artwork to the space. 

Get the Look

Achieving a modern Scandinavian kitchen design comes down to the overall design of the space. Your use of backsplash, cabinetry color, hardware, fixtures, and more is all key in creating the look. The main elements of Scandinavian design are functionality, simplicity, and craftsmanship.
