Your workspace can have a style of its own that is detached, yet subtly connected with the ambiance of the other rooms that surround it.
Since Scandinavian style blends ever so beautifully with refined, modern decor, it is definitely easy to pull off.
For those not too familiar, the Scandinavian design movement was born in the Nordic countries in the early 1930s, though it was not until early the 1950s that people really started to call it by that name. Essentially the style focuses on simplicity and the bare minimum that is needed to survive. Frills and unnecessary accessories and flourishes are seen as a distraction both in terms of form and ergonomics. Hence it is understandable that bright color is not a real priority when shaping a Scandinavian home workspace.
Black and white is definitely the backdrop of choice in Nordic-styled homes and that continues to remain till today. But add some color to this and use the background as a lovely backdrop to showcase stunning pieces, custom decor and your favorite art pieces. Keep the accents colors to a minimum and repeat the hues that you use to give the setting visual symmetry.
