Nordic-style wallpapers are wonderfully clear and tidy . So to speak, they come around the corner with simple elegance - or on the wall. Where other patterns scream opulently and exuberantly "here" means a Scandinavian design: "Why all the excitement, you can also prove good taste in a relaxed manner." And not just here and today, but very timeless.
Whether Iittala, Marimekko, Georg Jensen, Alvar Aalto or Poul Poulsen - the big names of Scandinavian designers are legendary. Common to all is the clear look, the reduction to the essentials and the harmonious proportion. Wallpapers with Scandinavian patterns and designs form an aesthetic background for living rooms, bedrooms or children's rooms without playing in the foreground. Despite their simplicity, they are never factually sober, but bring a bit of playfulness with Nordic charm into the good room.
Silhouettes and profiles - graphic wallpaper patterns are key
Rhombuses, triangles or herringbone in soft colors give wall surfaces their very own rhythm. Checkerboard look for advanced users: The juxtaposition of light and dark fields ensures lively areas. This gives bare walls an elegant appearance. In combination with straightforward living objects or the simple charm of Danish wooden furniture from the 50s or 60s, this creates a harmonious whole for fans of a clear sense of style.
Abstract wallpaper patterns - compression and reduction to the essentials
"Less is more" - this principle of puristic design can also be applied to Scandinavian wallpapers. By leaving out all superfluous details, a concentration on the pure form and color is created. There is something tremendously cleansing and detoxifying in this slimmed-down representation. Those who surround themselves with Scandinavian wallpaper like to focus their attention on the essentials and leave unnecessary ballast aside.
Pictorial wallpapers - the joy of illustration
Scandinavian wallpaper patterns can, however, also appear very figurative. Like minimalist children's book illustrations, they show abstract fruits in cross-section or wind-bent trees for which the storm lashes the leaves from their crowns.
With their silhouette-like silhouettes, some designs paint swinging leaves or flower bouquets on the wall. Fine hatching lines create forests or entire hilly landscapes. These illustrative wallpapers invite viewing, interpretation and reinterpretation. As with a picture puzzle, something new can be discovered every time you look at it.
Nordic colors like those of glaciers, rocks and fjords
There is a Nordic light on the soft, cool tones of Scandinavian wallpaper. Many shades of sand and stone are reminiscent of the cliffs of the archipelago. Pale shades of gray, blue and petroleum evoke the colors of water and ice. This well-tempered world of colors does not tolerate shrill outliers. Here everything is subordinated to a gentle harmony that promises serenity and well-being - for a relaxed feeling of wellbeing.
