Creating A Timeless Scandi Theme For Your Home

Scandinavian design is all about bright, light and open spaces with an aim of creating an interior that is simple and comfortable.

Encompassing the concept of ‘just enough’, your interior should be carefully considered and planned to perfection to truly create the ultimate scandi home.

There are many simple ways to incorporate Scandi elegance into your home and recreate that sense of ease and contentment that seems to emulate Swedish and Danish interiors.

Organic Fibres & Natural Woods

Scandi style isn’t about minimalism and is instead represented by the concept of ‘just-enough’. Organic fibres such as wools and natural looking fabrics partnered with wooden highlights seen in furniture and ornamental pieces are a great way of incorporating this trend into your home.

Select fabrics with a rougher or a slightly open weave in natural colours for upholstery or made to measure furnishings and ensure that any window dressing you choose allows natural light to enter your room.

Light & Bright

Still not sure on the colour scheme you should go for? We've got you. The main ingredient when creating a perfect scandi interior is the whites, greys and neutral colours you work with. Take our Summer Light Weave fabric for example. This light grey silver hue is a perfect representation of a light, yet warm colour that encaptures the scandi theme.

Intricate Patterns

Choosing a Scandinavian theme for your home doesn’t mean resigning yourself to neutral and monotonous. Many nordic designers have started to include an array of patterns and colours in their wallpaper designs. Although these designs may not be bright and bold, they are intricate and work perfectly with a neutral furnishing. Shapes and motifs inspired by nature are also important elements of Scandi design – try incorporating a subtle botanical print into your cushions, wall art, wallpaper or fabric. Just like our floral leaf fabric seen on this beautiful cushion.
