It looks like the Nordic Style is more fashionable than ever before. That's because it has been part of many homes for decades, but time hasn't made the slightest change to it. It's one of those fetish trends that fluctuates, evolves and reinvents itself all the time to stay in fashion.

The Nordic style was born in the early 20th century in the countries of northern Europe (Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark). It is based on two factors that greatly condition life in the Scandinavian climes. On the one hand, a shortage of light hours during the day, and on the other, the low temperatures of the north. So, in the search to appease these climatic adversities, if not to escape them entirely, decorators found a solution by using light and luminous colours combined with warm materials such as wood. And it is this perfect balance between the two that creates the clean, inspiring interiors we appreciate so much in this style.
The good thing about the Nordic style is that it can create a modern-looking space or a more rustic kind of space if that's what we want. All you have to do is change the type of wood and furniture, and you easily get one variation or another.
In addition, by combining light tones with wood that is also light, you easily get a decoration scheme that fits in perfectly with any room in the house, because in recent years you can find a huge variety of furniture that adapts well to this style, in tables, sofas, chairs, armchairs, wingchairs, sideboards, curtains and lamps.
But if you do choose the Nordic Style, you have to follow the guidelines right down to the fine print to get the kind of decoration magazine spaces you want to show in your own home. If you start making too many variations on the theme, you might inadvertently run off track. This doesn't mean to say you can't give this clear-cut, sober atmosphere a touch of colour in the form of upholstered cushions, a pretty vase or a special wingchair.

Space may be important, but furniture is, too. Your choice in furniture is critical for maximum enjoyment. For example, your sofa and armchairs should be upholstered in white or neutral colours, since these are the elements that normally attract the most attention in the room. In addition, your floors should be in light-coloured wood, because if you user darker colours, you'll lose much of the purity of this style. You can even line one wall of your room in wood, as this is an increasingly popular trend that gives a very warm and inviting touch to your living space.

Another factor to take into account in the Nordic Style is its natural look and functionality. On the one hand, the accessories you use to decorate with have to breathe that natural air in both texture and shape. Fabrics such as wool, linen or cotton, with rounded shapes, without too many corners, are ideal for achieving this.
Above all, the Nordic Style is all about being simple and useful. Avoid using objects that don't contribute anything special to your day to day life – things that take up too much space without saying anything. You have to look for a certain harmony between the furniture and your accessories, so there is enough space for the light to flow freely
