How to Get the Scandi Look in your Home

Posted on 25 July 2015

Simple, stylish, uncluttered spaces that are as practical as they are beautiful.... that's the Scandi way

The long, dark and cold months of the Scandinavian winter have been credited with the uncluttered, bright and open spaces of Scandi interior design. The result is relaxed simplicity, but it can be difficult to achieve. Follow this guide for inspiration and learn how to get the Scandi look in your home.

TEXTURISE
Layering different textures adds depth to your Scandi style interiors. Just a touch of fur on a plastic chair, or a rug on a bare floor makes all difference, and helps create cosiness without cluttering. Plants also help to add depth and colour to the stark Scandi palette. Top tip, keep it simple, don’t go overboard, the key is in the simplicity when it comes to Scandi style decor.

FLOORS:
You rarely see a Scandinavian style home with wall-to-wall carpets. When it comes to Scandi style, opt for neutral flooring of large slate tiles, wooden floorboards, or polished concrete, topped with a rug or two for texture.

COLOUR POP
Although the base colour palette for the Scandi style interior is white and neutral (especially of the walls), colours can be incorporated as statement pieces throughout the decor. Think Scandi-style legends Marimekko designs and colours.

SIMPLICITY
The elegance of the Scandi style is in its simplicity. The uncluttered nature of the style allows you to appreciate the aesthetics of the interiors, and the beauty in the design of each piece of furniture.

FUSE FUN AND FUNCTIONALITY
Scandi style is always functional, but also intrinsically fun by nature. Think quirky patterns and curious vintage or interest pieces.

TYPOGRAPHY AND GRAPHICS:
You’ll generally find a strong presence of typography and graphic prints, often in black and white, throughout Scandinavian graphic design.

ANGLES AND CURVES
A key component in Scandi style design is the fusion of angles and curves. Choose furniture that shows the legs, and mix angled and curved pieces together to complement and highlight the style of each piece.
