How to Create the Nordic Look in Your Home
If you’re searching for an interior scheme which is both calming and contemporary, look no further than Nordic style. Inspired by the effortlessly cool homes of Norway, Denmark and Sweden combined with a cosy cold-weather snugness, this look is both stylish and comfortable in equal measures.
While Nordic and Scandinavian design has been a popular interior trend in recent years, this style always looks fresh and contemporary.
From statement finishes, to pared-back designs, we've got plenty of pieces that can work wonderfully together to achieve a Nordic look. Discover our tips and favourite furniture picks to add some Nordic style to your interior.
Hygge your Home
Create the perfect Nordic look by injecting a touch of Hygge into your interior. Hygge is the concept of cosiness and contentment, of all things warm and comforting, so cosy up at home in Nordic style this winter with snuggly fabrics.
The Timothy Oulton Wild Yeti Sheepskin Chair works well with the Hygge trend as it is clad in luxurious thick long-haired New Zealand sheepskin. This is the perfect spot to curl up on over a lazy weekend, and truly exudes a feeling of warmth– essential when styling a Nordic interior.
Clear out your Clutter
Nordic homes are known for their clean, calm and uncluttered look. Embrace the Nordic way of living by decluttering and organising your home with functional and stylish storage.
Drawers are perfect for hiding away unnecessary items for a streamlined feel. The Whiteleaf Upcycled Chest of Drawers not only has practical drawers for storage, but features a Scandi-chic white-washed effect on reclaimed wood to create a beautiful focal point in a room.
The Decorative Wooden Ladder illustrates how storage can also function as a design feature. A must-have item for the modern home, the ladder can be styled with blankets and throws or towels.
Introduce Nordic Colours
It is also important to consider your colour palette when styling a Nordic home. While bold and dark hues are hot right now, Nordic interiors stay away from trendy colours and stick to the classics. To get the look, embrace lighter hues in the form of neutral greys and crisp whites for pared-back style - think simple white walls and bright, airy bed linen.
For a subtle touch of pattern and texture, the Mehari Rug in cream features a contemporary diamond design and feels soft underfoot.
When it comes to furniture, keep it natural with light woods such as oak. Alternatively, painted wooden furniture in shades of white and grey has a distinctly Nordic appeal.
Create a Cosy Dining Space
Cold weather is the perfect excuse to gather your friends and family together at home and enjoy some good food and drinks, which is why entertaining is a big part of Nordic culture. Take inspiration and create a sociable dining space that will become the heart of your home.
For a dining option that is both versatile and stylish, consider the Hancock Extending Table. The contemporary design of this piece allows the natural beauty of the mango wood to shine through without overpowering the room, which in turn reflects the concept of Lagom, another Scandinavian concept which means ‘just enough’.
Whilst we are in the midst of winter, there is simply no better time than to take inspiration from Nordic design, and upgrade your home to a hygge haven. Visit our website to discover a range of stylish furniture and accessories that will help you to achieve the Nordic look.
