Top 10 Tips to Master the Scandi Style

  1. Embrace Neutral Colours

The Scandinavian style relies heavily on a muted colour palette featuring whites, greys, and tans. These shades maximise natural light, imbuing your home with a serene ambience.

  1. Keep the Floors Exposed

In Scandi interiors, you often see exposed wooden floors as opposed to wall-to-wall carpets. This minimalist approach makes the space look more open and airy.

  1. Don't Obscure the Windows

Let natural light flood your living space. If you absolutely must use curtains, opt for sheer fabrics that still allow for maximum luminance.

  1. Add Warmth with Wood

The Scandinavians are famous for their love of quality craftsmanship. Incorporate wooden elements to add warmth and texture to your interior.

  1. De-clutter, Scandinavian-Style

The emphasis here is on 'minimalism', so make sure to keep only the items that add aesthetic or functional value to your space. 

  1. The Power of Textiles

Nothing says ‘Scandinavian comfort’ like a well-placed rug or throw. Brands like Olivia’s and Broste Copenhagen offer excellent textile options that scream Nordic charm.

  1. Geometry and Clean Lines

For that authentic Scandi look, geometric shapes and clean lines are essential. From furniture design to decorative items, keep it sleek and simple.

  1. It's All About Balance

The concept of ‘lagom’, which means ‘just the right amount’, is crucial in Scandi design. Balance out neutral tones with some pops of colour to create an inviting space.

  1. Kid-Friendly Spaces

Even children’s rooms in Scandinavian homes tend towards minimalism. However, the focus on craftsmanship means that wooden toys are often used as functional décor.

  1. Make it Personal

Don’t forget to add personal touches to your Scandinavian-inspired spaces. Whether it’s a piece of artwork or a family heirloom, make it meaningful.
