Trend Guide 2016: Edgy Scandinavian
Minimalist white interiors embrace the dark side.
You likely already know Scandinavian-style design: a white-on-white colour palette paired with pale maple and matte-finished bleached oak—it’s a clean look that emerged hand in hand with the small-space movement, and it’s going to be sticking around for several more years. But in 2016, Scandi-style flirts with the dark side. In Edgy Scandinavian, black emerges as a counterpoint to that bright white palette and, notes designer Stephanie Brown, “we’ll see it paired with higher-contrast materials of varying textures, such as high-gloss white and matte-black ebonized wood.”
