Interior Design Ideas // Grey walls + Scandinavian Style


Digital interior design Scandinavian mood board created with

"Keep life simple" - Scandinavian interior design is simple by nature, and oh so striking, if you like this kinda style, but find it a little uninviting at times (like the mood board featured above - a lot of whites + blacks) you can easily warm up the look by painting your walls light grey and adding timber accents. Always a trick finding that perfect shade though!

We have recently bought and moved into our new house, a little ugly duckling on a beautiful piece of land at the foot of majestic Chapmans Peak Drive , one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world, and a stones throw to the beach. (Yip, I am smiling from ear to ear as my dream has finally come true! But lets leave that for another post)...back to our little Knysna timber home...

It needs a lot of love and patience, and I mean A LOT, so I have opted to paint the run-down bathrooms grey for now untill we can afford to re-do them. And no, I didn't paint the walls. I painted over the outdated wall tiles! (a shade of pink and peach eek) so yes, this can be done. I am busy putting a "how-to" post together to show you guys how easy it is to transform a very outdated bathroom in a mere day - simply by painting the wall tiles grey!

In the meantime, get inspired by these gorgeous Scandinavian interiors that chose to use light grey walls instead of the stark, minimalist whites.


Don't you just love that herringbone floor...
