Mosaic mural art recommendations to fit your Scandinavian design preferences
(5 min read) In our previous blog post, we talked a bit about the simple beauty of Scandinavian design and the secret to its long-lasting presence among the most popular design movements in the history of interior design in general. In that article, I’ve promised to give you some comprehensive and practical mosaic art recs that will fit perfectly with your particular flavor of Scandinavian design.
We’ve already established that timelessness and easy maintenance are some of the common traits of both Scandinavian design and mosaic art. However, while the charm of Scandinavian design lies in its refreshing simplicity, the charms of mosaic artwork lie in its unique complexity. I will now tell you one of the universal truths of character study. Listen carefully, because I will say it only once and you’ve probably never heard of it before — opposites attract. Say whaaat…? You’ve read it in Psychology Today?! Paula Abdul sang about it? Your shy lil friend is hooking up with face-tattooed, wanna-be rapper Josh from down the street? You don’t say… Hm. Because it’s true. And that is exactly why Scandinavian design and mosaic art fit well together.
First of all, whether you are going for monochrome gray and blue hues, or blinding white and washed wood mixture, a gorgeous mosaic will work great as a “genre-bender”. Yes, you’ve heard me well. Mosaic art is sort of a Wes Craven in its own right. The genre-bender supreme. It will never break what you’re trying to accomplish with your simple design, mosaic will just give it some pizzazz and make it more attractive.
Gray tones will work awesomely with a black and white mosaic artwork, regardless of the subject. It will adapt to its surroundings, but it will also maintain a sense of novelty because of the sheer intricacy of the mosaic itself.
If you are a huge fan of shiny minimalism, but you did it with a Scandinavian twist with some steel and wooden elements, then you should go for a more colorful mosaic artwork. Some splash of color will give your space a rich flavor on top of that cool charm of white Scandinavian décor.
If you’ve opted for a mix of Scandinavian designs with a lot of natural light and gorgeous textured and wooden furnishings, then you should go for some nature scenery mosaic artwork. Some flora and fauna will go wonderfully with the already natural appeal of your space.
So there ya go! We’ve already established time and time again that mosaic art makes everything pop and look more captivating, and Scandinavian design is no exception.
