Based on its use of simple, natural materials, Scandinavian style has made its way into homes all over the world, and it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.


Simple forms, functionality and comfortable fabrics work in harmony with one another and its affordability and practicality means it is perfect for young families and small spaces.

1. Very natural living room



This comfortable corner sofa is on sale (£799) at our dfs store 


In a Scandi living room, there’s no such thing as clutter. While most objects should serve a functional purpose, decorative furniture can add an interesting and elegant twist. Throw in a floor lamp, sconces, a table lamp, candles for a bright and atmospheric finish. 


2. Clean, white kitchen



This stunning handless minimalistic white kitchen is £1,929 at Wren


White is key in the Scandi colour palette and is ideal for the kitchen, instantly making it appear clean and bright. In addition to cabinets and consoles, hang open shelves in the kitchen - they will save space and make the ceiling appear higher. Complement the modern furnishings with traditional wooden floors and countertops. 


3. Beautifully simple bedroom



Get this bed frame for £399,99 at Bensons for Beds


When space is not on your side, turn to multifunctional furniture. Hidden storage spaces leave the room looking neat (even when you’re hiding years’ worth of junk!). Paint walls white or a light pastel shade, and complement with deep tones and vibrant patterns.


4. High quality modern furniture


This elegant oak dining set is on sale at Furniture Village for £995


Think light, air and an open layout – there’s no room for heavy antique furniture! That doesn’t mean you need to compromise on quality, however. Check out this gorgeous oak dining set – stylish, modern and durable. 


5. Warm wooden floors 



These Starfloor Plank Luxury Vinyl Tiles are available for £27,99 sq. metres at Carpetright


Pale wooden floors are very common in Scandinavian homes. Cold winters in Northern climates mean turning to creative ways to warm the home. Using wooden floors preserves heat and creates a cosy atmosphere. Add a fluffy monophonic rug for a homely feel whatever the weather.
