Use textures & colours in the fabric to stop making the house look clinical

As said before the main colour theme of Scandinavian is white & neutral if it is not balanced out with different textures & colours it starts looking very clinical. Materials & Fabrics are the easiest & cheapest way to add cosiness to the room. Rugs throws, cushions, curtains instantly add liveliness to the space.
