Scandinavian design usually features neutral tones which are given an uplifted outlook by using lots of natural or artificial lighting. However, for some people, this may seem a bit too monotonous. But this reservation should not let you choose some other design theme over Scandinavian. You can still choose a Scandinavian theme for your home and add a few highlights that will bring some color to the design.
This is exactly what has been done in this design portfolio by Swiss Interior. The generic theme is that of Scandinavian but a pop of color in the form of two magenta chairs immediately increases the visual appeal of the room several notches. Notice how everything else is kept neutral with just this pop of color uplifting the room’s appearance. Glass doors and a glass table further create an elegant look in a modern yet classy abode.
