Get the look: Scandi Simplicity

May 24, 2016


Walls adorned in Plascon’s Ravine, offset by bright whites and accents in blonde wood, make for a tranquil, minimalist retreat guaranteed to revive your senses.

Get the look

● Paint the walls in Plascon Waterbased Velvaglo in Ravine (EC 62).

● Choose décor that isn’t affected by damp. If you frame something, tell your framer that the artwork will hang in a damp space. Non-water-resistant fabric can be used, as long as it’s easily washable, but upholstered seating should best be treated with Scotchgard or similar.

● This look was inspired by the characteristics of Scandinavian design – simplicity, minimalism, cool tones, simplified shapes, wood and clean lines.
