Scandinavian homes

Scandinavian home design is timeless in its simplicity and style. Fraemohs Homes have been selling Scandinavian styled homes since 1968.

The company was founded by Danish-born Monni Fraemohs in 1968. Monni saw the potential of New Zealand’s plentiful renewable timber resource. His vision was to supply New Zealand with sustainable Scandinavian homes and kit homes that would suit New Zealand’s environment and lifestyle.

 

Characteristics of Scandinavian home design

Despite living in a region with some of the harshest winters in the world, Scandinavian home design has a reputation for being light, bright and warm.

Timber is used frequently in Scandinavian homes. It is used in flooring, on walls and in furniture. Wood adds warmth and cosiness to the interior of a home.

Scandinavian home design lets in the daylight as much as possible, so often features large windows. The interior design typically prefers simple elegant blinds, over than fussy drapes.

Neatness and order is achieved in part through the clever storage areas, carefully integrated in to the design of the home.

 

Form and function

Simplicity and elegance of form is the hallmark of Scandinavian design. Intelligent architecture underlying its visual appeal, means the home is effortlessly functional and great to live in.
