How to Get the Scandi Look
Scandi design originates from Scandinavia, from countries such as Sweden and Iceland. Their passion for outdoor activities and nature influences this specific look perfectly. Your home is your comfortable place; if you feel more comfortable and connected with nature, why not bring it indoors?
The most important thing to remember about Scandi style and design is the use of natural materials and natural colours. To ensure you give your home the ultimate Scandi look, think of it as a blank canvas. White, cream, green, brown, even pale blue to match the Scandinavian icy, winter backdrop.
It is a minimalistic and simple design method which, if done right, will give you the tranquil and idyllic setting you’ve been dreaming of.
One of the simplest ways to inject Scandi style into your home is the use of wood. It’s a natural resource that is accessible for all of us and despite its homage to the outdoors and nature, can provide your room with a cosy feel when paired with the right accessories.
Using light wood and lighter colours gives your room a cooler feel and darker wood to compliment darker furniture colours, such as Burnt Orange or Forest Green.
Wooden furniture is an effective way of creating a Scandi room. A simplistic dining table or rustic side table can be the cherry on the cake and pull your room together.
