Scandinavian home design made its debut in the United States in the 1950s after a design show that traveled the U.S. and Canada acquainted Americans with the Scandinavian style of living. The style quickly rose in popularity and is back again -- this time with a contemporary twist that will make you swoon!

Perhaps the most widely recognized characteristic of Scandinavian design is its white simplicity. When it comes to a traditional Scandinavian kitchen, nearly everything is white. Additionally, this style of kitchen boasts clean lines, simple shapes, and just a little warmth.

How are families breathing life into the Scandinavian style these days? Butcher-block countertops and contrasting black and white finishes lend warmth and a modern touch to a Scandinavian kitchen, once an outdated style. If you'd like to have a little more fun with your home, consider adding simple, yet bright accessories that ‘pop’ for the viewer. Cherry red and navy blue appear to be especially popular at the moment. Remember that one of the benefits of the Scandinavian kitchen design is that it acts as a blank canvas, artfully catering to any accent color you choose!
