Hyped Over Hygge

If you haven’t heard of the word “hygge” yet then you’re seriously living under a rock. By definition, Hygge means “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” For a space that embraces “Hygge,” use warm tones of wood and cozy muted fabrics against a subdued, minimalist backdrop. Opt for warm-toned off-white or pastel paint shades to make your living space completely Hygge.

Swedish Blues

While we’re in the topic of all things cozy, how about relaxing shades of blue? We chose a palette of dusky, muted blues to match your Scandinavian aesthetic. Nothing too bright or too energizing to the eye. If you’re planning to switch up your bedroom into a Nordic getaway, consider these blue hues for your next repainting.

Mood Mode

Scandinavian inspirations and color schemes seem to revolve around white. And a lot of it! But did you know that darker shades like grays or blacks also work well with this aesthetic? These moodier shades still vibe well with the design style’s neutral, monochromatic look.

Final Thoughts

All these Scandinavian inspirations we highlighted here are all available in The Color Library! They’re all in the base paint of Virtuoso Silk Touch. It’s Boysen’s low-odor, low-VOC, easy-clean interior paint that dries in a luxurious matte finish. A match made in heaven for your soon-to-be Swedish home.
