Create a Scandinavian Style Home

Scandinavian interiors are designed with minimalism and practicality in mind. They are simple, clean, functional and full of charm. Our friends up north know exactly how to make a space feel mindful by incorporating shades of white and wood - think light wood cabinetry, matte iron pulls and white walls. The Scandi interior style is perfect for those who want an open space that is decluttered, provides a sense of peace and exudes warmth and comfort.

If you’re looking for Scandi inspiration and ideas, then look no further than our curated collection full of everything you need from bathroom vanities, paint, blinds & curtains and everything in between, all hand picked by our in-house Interior Designer!

How to get the scandinavian look:

  • Work with a soft colour palette – think white, pale grey and pastel paint colours
  • In Scandinavian style homes, clean lines and minimal design are key
  • Keep it simple and stick to two tiles - one for a statement and the other to balance the room/the look
  • Light coloured timber accents are a Scandi staple and add warmth and texture
  • Contrasting textures enhance the space – try bamboo mats, textured tiles, sheer curtains and plants
  • Minimal doesn’t have to mean empty – decorate carefully with like wicker baskets, stylish ornaments and display shelving

Traps to avoid:

  • Being boring – Scandinavian design is minimal, but still ultra cool
  • Channelling the IKEA catalogue – hey, we all love IKEA, right? But make sure you don’t forget to inject your own personality into the room!
  • Making it too cold. Think sauna, not ice cave, with warm lighting and underfloor heating
  • Don’t overpower your home with statement tiles or dark timber flooring
