Scandinavian design is effortlessly cool. Characterised by simple shapes, impeccable craftsmanship and honest materials, it’s an ideal style for creating light, airy spaces which beautifully allude to the natural environment. Just follow these simple tips to introduce some Scandi-style to your home.


Consider Your Base

This pared-down look works best by combining key pieces of rustic furniture with fresh white accents and natural accessories. Soft grey walls are the perfect backdrop and will prevent the room from feeling stark by softening the contrast between light and dark tones.

Use Natural Materials

Our Delta range really captures the Nordic style with its stripped back aesthetic and simplistic style. Made from reclaimed timber, each piece is hand polished to create a unique rustic finish and its natural look fits perfectly with the style.

Keep Your Palette Neutral

Enhance this look by balancing the dark wooden furniture with a light grey rug and crisp white sheets topped with sumptuous, soft throws. In a minimalist space such as this, less is always more so be careful not to over accessorise – true Scandinavian style is about staying sympathetic to your environment.


Be Clever With Lighting

Lighting is also important. Where possible, natural light should be used as much as can be. Evening lighting should be flexible to reflect the needs of the room. Try having a mixture of ceiling lights, floor lamps and bedside table lamps; you may even benefit from a dedicated reading light to catch up on those Scandi crime thrillers!

Scandinavian hygge

Accessorise Like a Scandinavian

Cushions, candles and blankets are all ideal accessories, as they will make your room look naturally Nordic. They also have the added benefit of having practical uses too. Cushions will increase your comfort,  plus blankets will make you feel extra cosy. Candles provide soothing light and a scented one will provide a calming aroma.
