Nordic Style, the favoured trend for pared-back enthusiasts, is set to be sticking round. Creating a timeless, clean and functional aesthetic that pairs bare neutral tones with warm and cosy textures, making it inclusive and adaptable for everyone.

In this week’s blog our designers have chosen their top styling tips for creating a cool Scandi interior.

1) Colour

Choose a neutral base colour for your room, we suggest off-white or very pale grey, (take Farrow & ball Purbeck stone for example) a neutral pallet is essential for this look. Walls are best kept bare so stay away from wallpapers, and if you need to break up a large space think about including a large mirror rather than art work or shelves.

Use colour charts to decide which shades work best with your wall colour, this will make it easier to keep your living area minimal and avoid adding unnecessary colour or accents.

2) Furniture

A deeply comfortable Collins & Hayes sofa will add an inviting understated yet elegant look that is totally inline with Nordic style. Use our Colour Collective by Linara that offers over 360 shades of the to create your perfect look. The entire collection offers varying classic designs, Heath uses contemporary lines for a modern look whereas Maple has a curved arm and back for truly deep-seated comfort.

One of the key ideas behind the Nordic way of life is using nature to create a warm and inviting space, uncluttered from modern life. So, keep side tables and shelves to a minimum and opt for natural materials like concrete or wood to bring the natural elements at the fore.

3) The final touch

How you accessorize this look makes the real difference. Quality over quantity as you are aiming to stay as clutter free as possible. Carefully chosen accents will compliment your neutral colour scheme, use darker shades for throws and scatter cushions.

Add subtle splashes of colour with a well-placed gold lamp or glass vase, don’t forget to bring in plants and greenery to enhance your look whilst reducing stress and keeping your air clean and fresh.

All that is left for you now is to sit back and enjoy your beautifully stylish Nordic space. Why not delve into the world of Hygge whilst you’re at it? This Danish concept is based around all things cosy and enjoying the simple things in life (such as your deeply comfortable Collins & Hayes sofa!).
