How to create your very own Scandi-inspired home

Feel inspired to start redecorating around your home in true Scandinavian style.

Scandinavian design is based around minimalism, simplicity and functionality. It’s a design concept inspired by the Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

Similar to a Scandi-inspired garden, there’s a strong focus on colours and finishes. Inside a Scandinavian home, you can find natural materials and textures, neutral colours and clean lines. All the decorations used serve a purpose and that’s how the rooms become so warm and inviting. The style embodies a sense of cosiness and it allows people to feel at ease when they walk into the room. They’re able to feel comfortable and that’s a key element in Scandi design.

Incorporating Scandi design into your home doesn’t have to be complicated. No, you don’t need to carry out complete home renovations. Scandi design is easy to achieve and can help to really transform your space into something you love.

Inspiration ideas for your Scandi home

1. Paint it white

A shade of white is commonly used on the ceiling, walls and floor. In Scandi design, the colour is used to brighten the space and creates a solid base for the other materials and textures to follow.

2. Incorporate natural materials

When everything in the space is white and bright, it can be a little overwhelming. This is why the Nordic countries use natural materials to bring warmth back into the space. Use different shades of wood, textured rugs and fluffy fur to achieve this.

3. Stay minimal

Decluttering your space is a must. Only keep things that serve you a purpose and function in your life. Holding onto something for a little too long? Give it away to someone who will love it.

4. Go pastel

Rarely do you see bright colours being used in a Scandi-inspired space. Adding pastel accents is the best way to bring some colour to the room without it overpowering the space you’ve created. Pastels are trans-seasonal which means you don’t have to change up your interior between the summer and winter.

Shop inspiration:


5. Say hello to natural lighting

The reason Scandi homes are so white is that it helps to reflect the natural light around the room. You want your space to feel as open as possible, so keep the yellow light to a minimum and let the natural light flow through.

6. Use greenery

Adding plants to your space is the easiest way to bring life to your room as they’re an actual living thing. You can decorate with plants in your kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom.

7. Fall in love with layering

Whether it’s your bed, couch or chair, learn to layer with textured blankets, throws, pillows and cushions. They’re functional but still act as a decorative piece.

Shop inspiration:


8. Add a fireplace

Of course, only if you can. It’s a great accent piece to help bring life and warmth to the room. Instead of a fireplace being the main focal piece, place it in the corner of the room. This makes it become a functional decoration.
