All white everything
Scandinavian style is an effortless blend of clean lines and understated beauty. The long winters and little daylight in Nordic countries were responsible for this need for bright, airy spaces.
This is why white is often used as the main colour in Scandinavian interiors, and natural elements such as wood are needed to add warmth to a space.
Dark, statement furniture and accessories are the perfect contrast to a white backdrop. Add another dimension of Nordic style to your living room with our Nauhana Cushion by Finnish designer Reeta Ek, it’d look great on a leather sofa like the one pictured.
Black and white
A polka dot feature wall stops this room from looking too clinical, and the wood and black elements break up all the white. Although the cushions are patterned, the effect is almost like a texture and adds a little interest to the clean lines of this beautiful bedroom.
The soft ruffled feathers on these cushions and the cashmere blanket make you want to dive right into this bed and hibernate.
Give classic Scandi comfort a modern twist
The fluffy faux fur on this danish bench gives a nod to the real fur and skins used to keep warm in Scandinavian homes during the winter. This turquoise fur adds a fun splash of colour to a white room, emphasised with the abstract cushion on top and the art on the walls. Give your home some painterly personality with our Plato cushion in Mustard.

Neutral colour palettes enhance the simplicity of Scandinavian interiors. Unique pastel cushions and soft furnishings or abstract statement walls and art pieces add personality and character to a minimalist room. Our beautiful X-Ray Orchid Cushion adds a understated pop of pink to a modern white bedroom, or placed on a Scandinavian wooden chair or bench.

Wooden furniture is a popular design feature in Scandinavian style homes. The distinctive forms of Danish designs are forever on trend and the perfect counterbalance to a serene interior. Equally striking when paired with brightly coloured, statement cushions in abstract or geometric styles. The versatile design and colours of our English Rose Cushion in Forest work well with traditional grey and wooden Scandinavian interiors. For a bolder look, scatter our La Cueillette Cushions in both Dawn and Cocktail designs.
Colour pop cushions
A statement piece such as a brightly coloured sofa or eye-catching set of cushions is a modern way of adding your own unique style to an otherwise traditional Scandinavian interior. Simplicity, of course, is key so be careful to avoid distracting clutter and let the accessories do the talking. Our Full Bloom Cushion is an instant way to lift a space in contemporary, fun style.
Clashing patterns everywhere
If you’ve got a lot of space to play with, make it count with bold, bright patterns and textures on cushions, rugs, sofas and anything else. Blocky furniture and open-plan style of this room give the mixture of styles space to breathe.
