Introduce Scandinavian Styling to your Home

17 January 2018

In recent years the term ‘Scandi’ has gained much attention, appreciation and traction throughout the UK.

Spaces influenced by Scandinavian design trends are filled with pale and plain natural palettes and minimalist shapes and elements creating a nonchalant homestyle, a discriminating and cultivated yet contemporary appearance with a style that does not date.

We have curated a selection of our favourite products to help you introduce Scandinavian styling to your home through a series of influences to help you match back to your own personal tastes and needs.


Choose wood wherever you can

The Scandinavians have a certain a word – Hytte that refers to a culture where people empty the cities on Friday afternoons to head to their weekend cottages to enjoy being isolated, alone and at peace in nature. So, it's no surprise that Scandinavians love wood.

Add a touch of sophisticated styling to your fireplace with the Jutland Fireside Tool Set. Product Code: FSST05, £85.00


The Scandinavian style of the Jutland Firescreen is the perfect accompaniment to fireplaces or log burners. Product Code: FSST01, £75.00

 

 

Use a subdued colour palette

Long winters encourage Scandinavians to decorate their homes in calm, neutral colours. Our Clays and Charcoals offer the perfect solution. 

Tenby Clock, 8 Inch in Clay - Steel, Product Code: CLCL01, £26.00

Spindle Bar Stool in Charcoal - Beech, Product Code: SPBS01, £230.00

Doormat in Charcoal - Jute, Product Code: DMCO11, £28.00


Lighting

Flood your home with lighting to create a light and airy space to accompany a chic stark decor.

With its striking domed shaping and deep colouring, the Digbeth Pendant below is the perfect choice when updating your interior. Crafted in Powder Coated Steel the lightweight fitting has been finished in our matt Carbon colourway. The soft shade is beautifully off-black with deep blue undertones, which will complement a range of colour schemes.

Designed with a twisted black cable that's fully adjustable, you can cut to the desired length ready to hang in your place of choice. The industrial styling in our Scandinavian inspired colourway will add a bold element whether paired over a dining table, in the living room or singularly in the hallway or bedroom.


Digbeth Pendant Light in Carbon - Steel, Product Code: LACN03, £50.00

The Bermondsey Wall Light below will suit almost any room in the house. Crafted in Powder Coated Steel and Oak, the wonderful mix of materials gives a contemporary touch to the home. We've chosen our Carbon colourway, an off black with hints of deep blue, that is very smart in appearance.

The indoor wall light can be adjusted in two places at opposite ends of the Oak arm and the switch on the back plate means you won't have to move far to turn it on and off. This allows you to angle easily and efficiently dependent on where you require the light to shine. This urban inspired Bermondsey Wall Light could be positioned beside the bed, in a reading alcove or beside a desk, offering complete versatility.


Bermondsey Wall Light in Carbon - Steel, Product Code: LAWO10, £65.00

 

Think of houseplants as furnishings

The desire to bring nature indoors means that pot plants, vases and similar are given as much importance as cushions and curtains for the Scandinavians.

Below - Bring nature inside in a unique and eye-catching way with the beautiful Hanging Terrarium in Glass. The simple sphere shaping comes with 70cm of natural Hemp Rope, for hanging in the desired location.

The trend for indoor air plants and terrariums has been growing in popularity, especially when arranging yourself dependent on colour preference and taste. Whether you fill with succulents, ferns or cacti the Hanging Terrarium is a stylish home accessory, brightening up every room. We love the idea of hanging a single Terrarium by itself or grouping a few together for a striking display.

The Hanging Terrarium has also been designed with a flat base making it perfect for standing on a windowsill or bedside if hanging space is limited.

Above - Hanging Terrarium - Glass, Product Code: TRGL01, £30.00

Standing tall the Wells Column Vase below would be a striking addition to large open windowsills and rustic dining tables. Crafted in 100% Recycled Glass the cylindrical body has a chunky rolled rim for that finishing touch.

Introduce bursts of pattern

Above - Brunswick Laundry Basket - Ndiorokh Grass

Introduce bursts of pattern to your home. Chosen carefully patterns and colours offer a boldness to an otherwise understated home. 

The Brunswick Laundry Basket offers a touch of exotic charm whilst retaining clean lines.

Woven from ndiorokh, a grass local to Senegal, they're bound in long strips of plastic traditionally used for bazin mats. Each is handmade by artisan women from villages in the Thiès region using techniques passed down through generations so no two baskets are exactly alike.

With a snug lid to keep your laundry out of sight, and convenient carry handles, this elegantly simple basket is a beautiful way to tackle an everyday task.
