Exotic Scandinavian lightness
Interior decoration starts with the floor. You can always repaint the walls, but replacing floor material will prove a more strenuous task. Therefore, carefully and unhurriedly selected materials and colours represent a solid investment in the future.
Light-coloured species of wood and surfaces mirror the Scandinavian soul. They make light burst into life during the brightness of summer as well as the darkness of winter.
For the Finns, the offspring of a country famed for design, light-coloured wood is a natural choice. It is used with preference everywhere: Aalto stools, kitchen cupboard doors, wooden board floors, ornaments. Light-coloured wood is the preferred choice of Japanese top designers as well. All light-coloured things seem fashionable and fresh there. This phenomenon has spread to other parts of Asia, too, and birch is the most exotic of materials for those accustomed to dark mahogany. The Scandinavian pale look is a big selling-point.
If you desire material that both reflects ultra-trendy Scandinavian style and mirrors the Finnish soul, light-coloured birch is an excellent choice.
