Get the Look: Scandinavian Style
Scandinavian and Nordic style is an ever-popular choice for many modern homes. Clean lines, simple designs and pops of colour combined with natural finishes creates a timeless aesthetic. There’s no set rule for Scandinavian style. In fact, many people choose to mix it with rustic country styles to create a blend of traditional and contemporary.
Scandi style is often associated with snug, cosy winters. So much so, the Danish created a phrase for this cosy feeling - ‘Hygge’. However, with brighter and more colourful Scandi inspired pieces coming to market, the Scandinavian trend can seamlessly translate into the Spring / Summer months.
We’ve picked out some of our favourite Scandi style pieces here in our interior shop Garstang, so that you can nail the Scandi look in your own home.
Traditionally, Scandi style is based on a neutral colour palette of whites, greys and natural browns with the odd pop of colour. Cushions are great for adding that pop of colour, or touches of pattern and texture.
Alike to cushions, lampshades are also perfect for adding colour and pattern to your space. Pair them with a sleek, natural wood lamp for the complete Scandi look.
When it comes to accessories, its best to keep it minimal. You don’t want to clutter your space with unnecessary knick-knacks that create an uncalming atmosphere. Instead, stick to natural finish vases and simple accessories to add beauty without overcrowding.
