What is there not to love about Scandi style? With its subtle greys, blacks and pastel shades, it is a comfortable, soft and intrinsically sophisticated look. If you have already perfected Scandi’s cool, clean lines and easy-going nature, here are four ways to enhance and evolve this look in your home.
Scandinavian design is often associated with black, whites and muted greys. Although the colour palette is very light and simple, bringing in a pop of colour here and there really stands out. A few touches of either pastels or bolder colours, brought through in a cushion, chair or poster, add some cheer to the décor and atmosphere.
Patterned textiles and ceramics really stand out against the clean lines of your Scandi style furniture. Choose throws, cushions, vases and even a carpet with interesting or bold prints. Wire chairs and side tables bring their own unusual patterns.
While the Scandi look is essentially minimalistic, refined and subtle, bringing in a touch of glamour and shine with warm metallics such as copper or gold can really bring the look to life. Think copper pendants or décor pieces with a metallic finish.
Woods and whites
Wood accents play a big role in Scandi style. They bring a natural, rustic element to the look and contrasted with cool white, they create warmth and comfort. You don’t need to have wooden flooring to do Scandi really well. Furniture such as chairs, tables and consoles can be chosen for their natural appeal.
