Scandinavian style: national color in the design of a modern house

Do you think that national motives in the interior -is it not fashionable at all? Then you should get acquainted with a real example of a cozy and colorful house from Sweden. And perhaps after that your opinion will change. A modern home does not always mean fashionable novelties and advanced technologies. The main thing is that a person, being in his monastery, feels comfort and coziness. And many can achieve this only by paying tribute to history and adding to their apartments the details that our ancestors surrounded themselves with. These little things, as if at the genetic level, are dear to us and close to our hearts. Today designers love to mix all kinds of styles while creating unusual interiors. But lately they are increasingly returning to ethnicity. And not the one that came from overseas countries, but to her own, folk, native, albeit slightly modernized. An interesting and vivid example of this trend is an old Swedish house with a true Scandinavian character. The house is located in a very picturesque area onborder with Norway and is called Avagarden. It was built in the mid-50s of the XIX century, and seven years ago it was slightly altered. Inside, the dwelling looks very cozy, because it is decorated in the national style - Swedish country. By the way, some furniture has been preserved here since the time the house was built and even now harmoniously coexists with its modern "brothers". Most likely, a large family lives here, which honors traditions and respects their roots. Winters in Sweden, like in Russia, are long, dark andcold, so it is not at all surprising that the Swedes have been trying to make houses lighter since ancient times, choosing a color scheme so that in cold weather the interior looks lively and cozy. Therefore, Avagarden's decoration has a lot of saturated colors, but they are all very natural and natural: warm red, burgundy, blue, light blue, green. A large amount of white and cream are traditional shades of Swedish interiors, like a constant reminder of the coming and long-awaited summer. Most national styles are characterized byan abundance of natural wood, because this material is widespread throughout the planet and helped a person in almost all crafts. Therefore, in this house there is a lot of it: floor, ceiling, walls, furniture. But this only makes it more comfortable. Our opinion: - To make the interior more colorful, it is best to use handmade products. For this, wicker and embroidered things are perfect. As for the furniture, it will look more natural if it is not painted, but treated with a stain. This house has a distinctive atmosphere andthere is such a rare village comfort in our time. Its heart is undoubtedly the living room, where you just want to sit on a comfortable sofa and throw soft pillows over yourself. So what is a real Swedish house without a fireplace? He is the most important attribute of the hearth here. And if you wanted to have a snack, you can always arrange a warm family dinner in a spacious kitchen with a very colorful wood-burning stove. And if the first floor of Avagarden is occupiedthe aforementioned living room and kitchen, then in the attic there are as many as four bedrooms along with bathrooms. Even knitwear and checkered fabrics are decorated here in the national Swedish traditions with the use of ethnic patterns. And the embroidered objects and the skin of a bear only complement the overall picture and seem to be transported to the past. Our opinion: - Adding national elements to the interior is, of course, great and even necessary, but the main thing here is not to overdo it, so that the house does not turn into a kind of museum of antiquity. Therefore, you should not get too carried away, but it is better to pick up only a few such bright elements. But if the Swedes can do that, then the Russian style is also.has every chance of becoming fashionable. Now a competition has started for designers, architects and students of specialized universities, the partner of which was our resource roomble.com. The main goal of the competition is to demonstrate all the beauty of traditional Russian decor elements and show how harmoniously they can blend into a modern interior. After all, our rich history gives a lot of opportunities that we, unfortunately, often neglect and strive to fill the gaps with a foreign culture.
