Many of us have come to know and adore the Scandinavian minimalistic aesthetic. The fresh white washed walls and stripped back floors. Although much of the Scandi palette is on the stark side, we can often find little gems of unexpected color splashed here and there, just enough to excite the eye within a laid back setting. With quirky accent furniture, stylish lighting and unusual accessories to draw the eye around each room in unexpected moments of interest. Here are 4 homes that offer this type of scintillating Scandinavian space, littered with little nuggets of interest, making this post the perfect place to pause for Scandi decor inspiration.

Our first glimpse of this Scandinavian living space shows us this is not just a stark blank decor scheme. A rich blue arcing ceiling draws attention up, showing off the tall height of the room. A fine lined light fixture catches the eye just enough without battling for attention against the statement rafters. Rich color is echoed around the lower perimeter of the room to balance out the levels. Lush green indoor house plants contrast against the deep hue, whilst two fluffy stools on castors look more like household pets than a standard choice in seating!
The dining chairs and internal window frames match the black fineline style of the living area ceiling light.
This Scandinavian Table setting uses plain white flatware decorated with leaves from the table centerpieces. Chic wine glasses complete the look.
Three chunky metal dining room pendant lights mark out the dining area. They are the Caravaggio lights by designer Cecilie Manz.
The devil is in the detail. Even the door handles match the other black accents found around this Scandinavian home.
White washed floors only seem to get better with age, added bumps and scrapes.
The Husk chair, by Patricia Urquiola, is perfectly accompanied by the mid century modern single arm floor lamp, a Serge Mouille.
Stark white units work perfectly in a Scandinavian style kitchen setting.
The countertops are kept relatively clear, only the odd plant and decorative vase adorn the prep area. This one is the Willmann Vase by Menu.
The black wirework found in the accents of the lounge and dining areas of the home are carried through into the contemporary bedroom area in the form of a unique modern feature wall design. The mesh pattern leads down behind the headboard that spans the width of the room. Each bedside table is lit by wall-mounted exposed bulb style wall sconces.
A plain white duvet set has the added interest of button detailing on the pillow cases.
The rich tan color of this stylish desk chair heats up the color scheme in this home office, and matches the warm wood tone panel on the front of the work desk.
In the contemporary bathroom the bold wood tone continues along with the deep blue from the living areas.

In our second home tour, a stunning traditional Scandinavian fireplace is the clear crowned star of the show and yet each piece in the living area still manages to have a moment in the spotlight. A quirky arrangement of pendant lights adorn the ceiling whilst quirky furniture and accessories create an inviting place to come sit and socialize.
The White Eames RAR Rocking chair sails between white wood floor and pale gray pattern rug. Copper accents have been chosen to compliment the shining copper doors over on the furnace.
The Eames Bird Replica perches upon a modern white coffee table with hidden storage–perfect for stashing away messy magazines when guests come over. A set of two round mirrors above a console table tie in with the circular shape of the coffee table, and the color of a black leather armchair. A gray scatter cushion adds a spot of comfort to the Eames rocker and continues the theme of gray pattern in the soft furnishings.
Architecturally the home is simple, though these internal double doors through to the bedroom do add a subtle sense of grandeur.
This contemporary bedroom scheme also houses a home office area. The wooden desk is paired with one of two modern chairs in this space that bring an unexpected pop of purple.
A large bedroom pendant is suspended directly over center of the bed.

A Swiss Cheese Plant is given pride of place in the centre of the room, elevated on a plant stand.

In the fourth space we see a wider usage of black, though the dining room pendant lights are white Aim Multi-point LED lights.
Dominating the ceiling is a striking living room light, a Tom Dixon style Stout Black Pendant.
The mid century modern style console table lifts the scheme with a surprising flash of blue. Contrasting coffee tables form the centerpiece of the room.
The Scandinavian style chairs used here in the dining room are a collection of six Eames armchairs.
