This picture has lots of elements of black and white, and there is also clear natural light. Another common Scandinavian element is the wood stove, which is a functional but also sleek and stylish piece.
I LOVE exposed brick. I've seen online before that they make super thin "bricks" so that you can cover a wall to give it this look without actually having to live in a true brick building. Would look amazing in the right kitchen or dining room.
