The latest furnishing trend is called: Scandifornian. This is a mixture of Scandinavian and Californian style.

The Scandinavian furnishing style has become indispensable. It is characterized by simple elegance, neutral tones and minimalist decoration. That is why it is often combined with other styles, for example with the Japanese to Japandi or with Californian to Scandifornian.
The Californian style is characterized above all by a Boho impact off. It says Decoration over decoration with airy and woak textures instead of straight and plain lines. Everything to make the 'laid back' to represent the Cali lifestyle.
What does the Scandifornian do Style off?
Light colors with small accents
One finds white walls in every Scandifornian house. Light colors that create airiness, lightness and a clean atmosphere can be found in both Scandinavian and Californian furnishing styles. Spots of color in earth tones - Terracotta, mustard, rust red - offer accents and make the room appear less cold and sterile.
Nature is finding more and more space in many furnishing styles. That is why the Scandifornian style is also characterized by natural materials such as bamboo, sisal, linen or rattan. They bring coziness and at the same time airy environment. Plants, especially large ones, shouldn't be missing either.
