One of the fastest rising design concepts used for apartments these days is the Scandinavian-Industrial design. Most young couples and millennials opt for this concept because it is easier to maintain and at the same time, more streamlined and straightforward.
To create the Scandi-industrial look for your living room and dining room, use neutral colors and wood together. Lighting is minimal and focused. If you wish to add a bit of color, use it as part of the furnishings or decor so that it would not be too distracting.
