    Linen is where it's at. From whites, to soft greys or beige, the washed out look gives an effortless feel of a Nordic Style. When you think about this style, think minimalism, earthy, textured, balanced, simple.

    Mix & Match Natural Materials

    Another way of adding texture to the space is to add different types of natural materials. Adding wicker, seagrass, hemp, leather, brass, copper, etc works well with the space, especially when the color is on the lighter side.

    Add the Greens!

    Who doesn't love adding some green to their home? There are many indoor plants that not only add a natural glow to the space but also purifies the air as well- a win, win! With the light tones and natural accents, adding some greenery is sure to go along well with the Nordic Style.

    The cool quality about the Nordic Style is that you can choose to go dark or stay light. The natural tones, linens, wooden floors, and greenery keeps the space still light and simple. So, take a leap of faith, if you so desire, and try out dark cabinets or dark walls!

    Unique Lighting Styles

    If you look into the history of Nordic countries, they have long and dark winter months so it comes to no surprise that they would have a lot of lighting. They favor long hanging pendants, unique designs, and many different lighting styles for each room. This is definitely a way to use creativity to add a "wow" factor in your home.
