Bringing Scandinavian Style into your home!

29th March 2017

We truly adore the Scandinavian décor, from pure white spaces, raw elements, and the use of neutral and subtle colours. With its simplicity, it gives the home such a clean and refreshing feel. As this style has now taken an impact on the furniture we are creating, we thought we would put together a little guide on how to introduce this style into your home.

There are a few ways to create this look giving the element that less is more.


Although it might seem illogical at first, we can all take a few tips from the Scandinavians to streamline our home. This streamlining creates a relaxed environment, clutter free.

The best piece of advice given is to keep things simple. This will increase positivity in your home. Storage is implemented in the form of shelving and cabinets allowing you to use your space more wisely. Bold pieces are regularly used and they should be allowed to do all the talking. Using them as centre pieces and focal points will help to keep your space looking fresh and tidy.

Natural lighting is very important; keeping spaces to a bare minimum, white walls and cool grey and blue textiles gives you the right ambience of a Scandinavian interior. Adding a light floor will also lift the mood within the room, preferably lighter flooring. You will see this look throughout a lot of Scandinavian homes. The use of Texture is also important. Using glass and ceramics is part of the classic décor, sometimes moved into more modern times with striking wall art.

Incorporating flashes of colour is a great way of brightening and lifting a room classically. Try using a feature single sofa, or a large item. Or alternatively accessories can work well, coloured candles, cushions, throws or even that colour pop painting to hang.

We have a fabulous range of Scandinavian furniture here at Lakeland. Our Oslo range is clean cut and created using lighter tones. They will bring character and carefree living into your space, giving you that Scandinavian feel. We haven’t forgotten that the convenience of the furniture is also a key factor. This has been incorporated throughout out side boards and bed side tables.

As seen in the above images, the Oslo Range is created in a very light Oak, the grain is running throughout the pieces which is perfectly matched with the white wash wood doors. Not only can they store whatever you wish but they are also stunning to look at.
