How to strengthen your home's Scandi style

Scandinavian design is known for its clean lines, its simplicity and functionality – and its feature timber.

Timber elements create a sense of warmth, while also having an understated elegance.

By enhancing current timber features and pieces in your home, or adding in a few more, you can easily create and strengthen a Scandi look. Polish existing timber floorboards, or add floating timber flooring. For a simpler change, you can add warmth with timber furniture pieces.

Swedes also love a connection with the outdoors, so light is very important in Scandinavian homes. Connect to nature, let the light in and highlight views with timber framing.  In terms of textiles, go for soft, cool colours. They’ll balance the warmth of the wood, and give you a starting point for any accent pieces.

Scandi style is also about minimal ornamentation. So if you’re going for this look, it’s a good idea to de-clutter and scale back. Lastly, Scandinavian design has a big focus on sustainability especially with heating and cooling. For homes like Middle Ridge with big windows, simple dual rollers are perfect for insulation.
