How to Shop the Scandi Home Trend

Scandinavian culture has slowly been creeping into our lives. Nordic Noir took over our screens with The Killing and our wardrobes with Acne, Cos, Ganni and Gestuz. Now our homes have succumbed to that same call of the Scandinavian dream.

Part of the Scandi Home Trend attraction has to be the elegant simplicity of the Nordic house. Minimally designed, Scandi homes are large, light and airy. Neutral tones allow light to bounce off walls and furnishings, creating the appearance of a larger space. While it may be a push to have an all-white home, beiges, sands and mochas allow you to create a blank canvas without having a stark and bare-looking room.

Clean lines and blocked colours ensure that your rooms keep a sophisticated cool look. Try not to overstock your home with trinkets and accessories. Minimal ornaments and a couple of throws are all you need. When buying for you home, stick to the Scandi Holiday mantra. If you were living in a cabin for a week, what would you need?

If you find it hard to steer away from the bright colours, introduce pops of your favourite hues with funky mugs, plates, and other kitchen accessories. The neutral tones of your home will make these pieces stand out so make sure that they are amazing.

But the Scandi Home Trend isn’t just about cleans lines and minimal looks. The Nordic countries are home to some of the most extravagant and stylish log cabins and for that reason, we think that incorporating as much wood as possible is the perfect way to make your Scandi home that extra bit cosier. Juxtapose rustic textures with your minimal lines to create instant sophistication and warmth.
