Trend – New Simplicity

Statement or simple? The Scandinavian aesthetic has usually favoured the latter - however we have seen a recent shift away from monochrome. The Scandi home is now introducing darker colour tones, prints and new textures. No longer are all the walls white, people are being brave with paint, creating accent walls in olive green, charcoal and blues, we've even seen ceilings painted black! Rich fabrics are now also on show, from velvet sofas to thick pile rugs. Mixing and matching your accessories brings in new points of interest to a room. Create this look using clusters of vases in different heights, hanging planters and piles of books.

While the backdrop still remains true to the classic Scandinavian look: clean, functional and fresh, a new sense of fun has been added. Play around with different textures and shapes. We love teaming stone with a contrasting fabric like velvet, for a classic yet modern feel. Add touches of gold with earth ware to keep the look contemporary. A colour palette of muted greens, indigos and pinks work wonderfully with natural elements. Dress up a marble fireplace or wooden table or shelfs with your treasured homeware styles. The main thing to remember is to let your favourite items shine. De-clutter and make room for your most loved books, framed photos and trinkets.

To the keep the look fresh never forget to add plant life. Flowers and potted plants will instantly give your home a new look and inject some focal points to your space.
