Storage As Decor

Because of the functionality aspect of Scandinavian design, using storage pieces that double as stylish decor is a no-brainer. According to Anna Decilveo, a merchandiser at the Swedish-founded company Tictail, “The shelf or basket you would've likely hid in your closet is, instead, a work of art in itself.” From storage racks to kitchen organizers, virtually every facet of your home can be Scandinavian-level chic.

Worn Leather

We're seeing a major transition to worn leather pieces in Nordic interiors, like these leather-backed wooden chairs in Swedish stylist Lotta Agaton's home at . They're rustic without looking too antique — and look great with a sheepskin blanket tossed over their back. We're thinking this might be a Swedish play on the current American mid-century modern obsession.

Sheepskin Rugs

While wall-to-wall carpeting is a definite no in Scandinavian design, there are still ways to bring texture to your floors. Our advice? Sheepskin rugs. In the colder climates that Scandinavian design was born from, sheepskin not only ties into the cultural inception of the style, it also enhances the otherwise texturally sparse look.

Monochrome Art

It's no surprise the Swedes turn towards monochrome artwork, like in this , considering the rest of their house tends to stay in the realm of black and white. Not that America will ever go strictly minimalist (we're too obsessed with antiques and collecting, well, everything), but we'd love to see this simple, graphic artwork interspersed amongst colorful rooms. Layer them for a casual, but stylish effect.
