Designed to inspire relaxed living, the Scandinavian look is all about sleek lines, paired-back colours and understated elegance. To create your own slice of Scandinavian style, choose a colour scheme that consists of clean, crisp hues, such as light shades of greens and blues, off-white and natural light wood tones, like ash, beech and white pine.
When it comes to choosing furniture, look for pieces that seamlessly blend sleek lines with sensual curves. Choose natural fabrics, like cotton and linen, to create a cosy, lived-in look. Wood in all its forms is a key part of Scandinavian style – if you have a working wood stove or fireplace, why not create an attractive and useful display with the logs you plan to use? For the final touch, add plenty of textured accessories, such as a knitted pouf, woven rug and sheepskin throw.
