The Eames chair never disappoints in a Scandinavian interior.

What kid wouldn’t want to fall asleep under these cute, wood-stick tents? Here, Finnish interior designer Susanna Vento created a monochrome bed complete with an adorable tented canopy, as seen in ELLE Decoration Sweden. This trend has already started popping up in the U.S., like in Lucy Liu’s son Rockwell’s playroom. Kids around the world will be pretty excited about this one.

It’s no surprise the Swedes turn towards monochrome artwork, like in this Gothenburg home, 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.

The subtle weave of grey shades gives some depth to this easy-to-apply removable wallpaper.

The Scandis are all about their chic DIY projects, and we expect the U.S. will be soon, too!

The buckled straps of this sling-style chair highlight the buttery softness of the leather.

This area’s style makes room for company with a vast array of seating options.

Helsinki-based designer Linda Bergroth created the pop-up hotel KOTI (meaning “home” in Finnish) to provide “an immersive experience into Finnish hospitality and cottage culture,” she said in a statement. This means communal eating and living spaces, innolux lamps that simulate natural daylight, and minimalistic tableware. “Instead of well-known design products, I think we should highlight the Finnish ways of sharing,” said Bergroth.

The focus on Scandinavian design usually revolves around Sweden, but Finland is catching up in a big way. One of the happiest countries in the world, the Finns are doing something right. It could be their deep connection to the outdoors, their tasty but simplistic diets, or if you ask us, it definitely has something to do with “cottage culture.”

Let the light shine in! This kitchen and dining space balance overall simplicity without giving up attention to the details.

A good leather sofa can take you a long way. This living and dining room also show how a sofa can easily become a focal point.

“My absolute favorite Scandinavian decor trend is taking what would normally be a boring storage piece, and making it a design focal point in your home,” says Anna Decilveo, merchandiser at Swedish-founded company Tictail. “The shelf or basket you would’ve likely hid in your closet is, instead, a work of art in itself. We’re already seeing so much of this from emerging Swedish brands on Tictail.” From designer clothing racks to statement kitchen organizers, now every facet of your home can be Scandinavian-level chic.

Here, shades of gray take on a warm aesthetic with layers of textile and light.

This spa-like bathroom takes a page from Swedish bathhouses while embracing Feng Shui design ideas.

This modern Scandinavian kitchen gets a dose of color from slightly unconventional dining room chairs.

Americans are known for perpetually chasing after a “balanced” lifestyle — but the Swedes just do it. Author of Lagom: Not Too Little, Not Too Much: The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced Happy Life, Niki Brantmark (also the brains behind My Scandinavian Home) knows a thing or two about balance. As described in the title, lagom means finding just the right amount, which is a beautifully Scandinavian approach to life and design. She predicts it will make its way from our daily schedules to our bedrooms, where “conscious buying and slow design” will take center stage.

Nordic heritage comes alive in the city in this bright, black-and-white loft.

“Bedrooms will become device-free and made up of a palette of soothing greys and milky whites, which combine with natural textures such as soft linen, cozy sheepskins, chunky knit blankets and warm rustic wood for your very own oasis of calm,” she says.

A warm gray changes the tone of this city studio to become an earthy, cozy home.

Part-nordic, part-nautical. This refurbished kitchen and dining space seems to come straight from the Scandinavian coast.

This unconventional kitchen doesn’t distract from its unique architecture. Instead, it stays simple and adds a few pops of mint green.

A primarily white studio gets a northernly touch with earth accent pieces, such as natural textiles and live plants.

The textures of this tiles and accent pieces in this bathroom make the space elegant and timeless.

Known for its simplicity, function, and connection to the outdoors, the appeal and possibility of Scandinavian design has spread it all over the world. AKA, much more than just IKEA.

Vintage faucets and modern countertops create a unique look, while the color scheme assures the timelessness of the style.

“In a time when we’re feeling constantly connected through technology and social media, wouldn’t it be nice to have a personal sanctuary in which to switch off?” says Brantmark. Creating a highly-personalized space that is warm and welcoming, without the distractions of phones, televisions, or computers is important in counteracting busy day-to-day life and focusing on the heart of design.

After years of chevron, we’re eager for stripes to make a comeback — especially if they’re simple and black-and-white, like this H&M Home pillow seen in artist Nina Holst’s Norwegian home.

Feather motifs have caught on a little here in the States, but we’re excited to see a full-blown feather epidemic going on in Sweden, as seen in this Swedish Easter tablescape.

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 La Maison d’Anna G. 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.

A light slate gray is both striking and calming in this sleek kitchen.

Whether you’re adding them to your tablescape or working feather patterns into your wallpaper or bedding, Scandinavians are all about adding a nature-inspired element to every space. (Just make sure to go with faux-feathers, okay?)

A jewel-toned blue rug with cream leaf-shaped accents brings in classic Scandi-style nature motifs while still keeping your look modern.

For a softer look, opt for stripes with an organic, uneven texture that wards off fussiness.

Black and tan pair perfectly in Scandinavian interior style. The black hardware completes the look on bright cabinetry.

Mixing patterns and textures in a space allow monochromatic styles to succeed.

Every nordic interior need a good graphic poster on the wall.

This Scandinavian space mixes things up with decor — repurposing a ladder for a magazine rack, and caged pendant for a desk light.

From an unused corner to a sweet-but-simple desk space. Light, untreated wood speaks to the Scandinavian style that has been popular for centuries.

This studio keeps things simple by using a curtain to hide a packed bookshelf. It adds dimension to the space without weighing it down.

Scandinavia’s favorite accent color? Clearly, it’s blue — a bright blue that stands out brilliantly against all-white interiors, like in this colorful 1920’s Copenhagen home belonging to industrial designer Josefine Bentzen. Let’s just say, the monochromatic phase is over.

A stunning dark wall compliments the shower of light in this small home office space.
