Create the perfect Scandi Living Room

Scandinavian design is a movement marked by simplicity, minimalism and practicality. Clean lines, natural elements and geometric patterns of Scandinavian style make it the perfect choice for any home. The furniture you choose has a big part to play in creating that vibe, especially your sofa, which can often be the centrepiece of your Scandi living room.

Neutral Colours

One of the first things you notice about Scandi decor is the very limited palette. White predominates, with touches of grey, black, pale blue, or pastels taking up secondary positions. Scandinavian decor is designed to provide a bright space full of light that the people don’t often get from the long, dark winters they have. White walls will create the perfect background for both natural and artificial light. This will reflect off and add spaciousness in your living room.

Layering Neutrals

Think about Scandi living room decor as bringing the best of the outside into the inside. You will then understand the importance of layering neutral tones throughout the room – choose beige, browns, greens and greys to really bring the Scandi style to life. These colours will add a subtle depth to the room whilst keeping it warm and cosy for the whole family to snuggle up together and enjoy.

Wooden Flooring

Wood floors are a Scandi staple and will continue to brighten the space up and bring more of nature inside with the different textures it provides. Compliment your floor with a decorative, neutral coloured rug that will add warmth to the room and create the perfect balance of spaciousness and cosy.

Plants and Flowers

Greenery is also the perfect way to transform your living space into a Scandi haven. Adding some plants or flowers into your living room will help bring nature inside to compliment those open spaces and help create an even cosier space. Choose big potted plants for corners of the room and add smaller ones throughout.

Modern Scandi Style

Our customer Julia transforms her living room with a new set of sofa covers! Neutral walls and a classic statement piece, like her chrome Curva floor lamp, creates a stylish effortless look. Her original Lisbon Silver sofa which has subtle muted tones of soft grey has now been replaced with a crisp clean Ivory Turin. It sits in the natural light perfectly. We love this minimalist look and believe there is beauty in simplicity!


Coastal Cottage Style

Introduce the colours of Spring into your home by accessorising with subtle shades of blue and beige, giving a nod to blue skies and sandy beaches. We love how the Little Lavender Cottage has complemented their Turin Oatmeal sofa with layered scattered cushions and a tactile throw which creates the most cosy space and calming retreat.


The Colourful Home

Like a burst of sunshine, nothing cheers up a room more than the colour yellow! Look at this bright yellow velvet sofa. Our customer Mia strikes a balance using a cool wall colour shade, beautiful art prints in contrasting colours and neutral accessories. All these different colours play an important role in creating a cohesive look that ties the whole room together.
