Shades Of Grey

Add some Scandic style to your living room with these urban interior design ideas.


To recreate this edgy, urban interior design scheme, use a moody grey palette paired with crisp white and slick black. The softness and elegant simplicity of the grey palette is timelessly stylish and creates a classically Scandinavian look.

#02.Materials & Texture

The understated nature of the grey colour palette means you can play around with shape and texture to add interest to this urban living room look. Blend soft textures such as wool and felt with clean wood finishes and sculpted steel.


Recreate Scandic living room style by making your sofa the focal point of the room. Sofas with soft curves and modern forms fit beautifully into this urban interior scheme. An open-shelving unit is a great way of opening up the space in the room, whilst allowing you to accessorise and store effectively, creating a balance between style and functionality.


For a fun, urban decorating idea, introduce oversized curvaceous lighting to your scheme. A mixture of table and floor lamps will add another dimension to the ambience of the room and allow you to alter the focus to key pieces or areas.


The pared back nature of Scandic interiors means you can focus on a few signature pieces rather than over accessorising. A large, geometric rug compliments the curves and sculptural pieces of an urban interior, while small statement items in black and white lift and enhance the grey colour scheme. Choose a rug that encompasses the different hues and shades of your overall palette to complete the look.
