Letting the light in
In the summertime Scandinavians get plenty of sun if the weather agrees with them. However, it can be very cold and dark in the winter. Hours with sunlight decrease rapidly when the year is coming to an end. Unfortunately, darkness can lead to depression. And yet, the Scandinavians are some of the happiest people on Earth. They have found the solution to this lighting problem.
With skylight windows and huge window panels in the house, they are constantly letting in the light. Even if the outdoor natural lighting is limited, big windows will ensure that every little beam of light gets through. When picking out lamps and lightbulbs, Scandinavians are experts in choosing the right lighting angles and glows that complement the décor.
Interior design is another discipline the Scandinavians love to master in. In modern homes the theme is often light colors and soft contrasts. The nature is invited inside in the forms wooden materials, like a pale wooden floor rendering the light from the windows. Darker plank tables with a rough look creates a very nice contrast to the living room. In Denmark a lot of people appreciate original Danish design, which is also to be found in several homes.
