Known for its simplicity, functionality and beauty, the appeal of the Scandi style has spread all over the world. The Scandi look is an offshoot from the mid-century movement that brought a populist minimal look. Featuring gentle, organic contours, functionality and flawless craftsmanship, it presents a clean yet versatile aesthetic. The use of light is extremely important, and many Scandinavian-styled homes are characterised by the use of earthy muted tones, natural materials, clean lines and minimal ornamentation. These key traits ensure you don’t build up clutter and promote a simple living space and lifestyle.
