scandinavian style in the dining room

The dining room is the hub of the home, so it makes sense to style it Scandi!

Your dining chairs should be comfortable (for those Sunday evenings with family and friends) but still make a style statement. Think replica Eames-style chairs in understated colours.

Scandinavian tables keep the space feeling grounded with their minimalist designs, usually in solid timber. We’re also talking tapered timber legs and chic curves. Look for the most neutral colours possible – pale wood shades, light grey, and of course white. 

If you’re more the type to dine around a kitchen island for quick and casual meals (like breakfast before work), you can easily bring the theme into the kitchen with some Scandinavian stools, again in those neutral wood and white shades.

get the nordic look in the living room

In the living room, Scandi coffee and side tables typically combine tapered legs in light oak with fresh white tabletops. They can be round, square, or even triangular, as long as it’s simple and functional.

For your television, a Scandinavian entertainment unit should be short, wide, and symmetrical, with plenty of storage space for your set top box, DVD player, and other items.

Scandinavian chairs and sofas should feature neutral colours, such as light grey and charcoal, as well as tapered legs to match the coffee tables. The Otto and Chloe ranges from Zanui perfectly match this theme.

For a bit of added Scandi style, try incorporating a simple jute or wool rug in simple colours and textures. Accentuate the sofa with a warm, check-pattern throw and a little bit of fringe detailing for added comfort. Finish off the look with statement pendant lights featuring wood and glass accents, or a standing lamp with a white drum shade.

sleep in scandinavian style in the bedroom

A Scandinavian bed should follow a similar style to the sofas and armchairs in the living room. Think bed frames and bedheads in neutral shades of grey and white with tapered wooden legs.

For the bedspread, you want to keep it as simple and as soft as possible. You can incorporate a bit of colour here, perhaps a nice navy blue or pale pink, but again, white and grey are always your best choices. Opt for linen and cotton bedsheets and quilt covers for year-round comfort.

Bring warmth and dimension to your bedroom with a plush Icelandic sheepskin or a natural jute rug. Photographic prints and abstract wall art in cool, neutral tones are perfect for highlighting Scandi style in your bedroom decor.
