Minimalist, but never boring.
there'ssomething eternally chic about Scandinavian design. From the tone-on-tone, bright and airy colour palette to the minimalist approach, it’s a look that doesn't require updating. Here are 6 living rooms that embrace that lasting Scandi style.
This open-concept Edmonton bungalow features a bright, sleek living room by Kresswell Interiors. A beautiful blend of European chalet cozy and Scandinavian cool, the greys, blacks, and whites in the room are paired with the light warmth of the cozy sofa and many playful throw cushions.

In a North Vancouver house designed by Chris Hill, this living room is a classic example of making the best of limited space. The furniture creates a cozy ambiance with minimalist furniture and light fixtures. But our favorite part (besides Hill's very cute pup, Gus) is the multi-faceted coffee table from HomeSense.

Centered around the fireplace, this cozy living room in Jenna Josephson's East Vancouver home is the perfect Scandi-chic, modern space. Light splashes of colour are incorporated into the room with greens and yellows that break up the monochromatic palate. The formal living room incorporates a bit of fun by playing around with texture (see: suede chairs and the plush fur covers). For more, click here.
This coastal Vancouver Island home's living room designed by Chris Foyd and Kimberly Bradley is a wonderful marriage of sleek and practical. The room is playful with its burnt oranges, reds, and browns adding warmth and colour, and the sleek black chairs lend it a hint of modernity. The comfy orange Togo sofa and lounges from Ligne Roset make the room feel invitingwith a beautiful view to boot. For more, click here.
Nothing speaks to holiday cheer like a modern living room dressed up in all its festive glory. Sarah Duyker's North Vancouver home, designed by Sophie Burke, is cozy but sleek, the minimalist living room perfectly chic with monochrome furnishings, including the stylish black table and comfortable seating. Large windows let in the sunlight and bring out pops of colour in the blue rug and table décor. More details about this space here.
The living room in this light, bright home in Whistler designed by Sophie Burke and Cedric Burgers is modern and somehow still cozy. The consistent palette of whites, greys, and light oaks helps accentuate the open concept of the space and doesn't take away from the undisturbed view of Rainbow Mountain.
