Go Scandi for Autumn – Winter 2017

A design trend that shows no sign of going away is the ultra-contemporary Scandinavian look, according to Clare Laughland Interiors in Farnham. Here our local interior experts provide an insight into the world of Scandi.

Scandinavian style has been proving popular in high end interiors for a while now, but in preparation for autumn/winter 2017 it is filtering down to fit all budgets. Scandinavian homes are renowned for their clean lines and muted colours; for being aesthetically pleasing yet at the same time highly functional.

The Scandinavian style is a very practical one, driven mainly by necessity. Scandinavia’s short winter days give rise to a yearning for natural light, which accounts for the preference for light wood floors and white walls and ceilings, which reflect light around the home.

Simplicity is key and less is more. Shades range from pure whites to creams and greys through to blues and richer tones, with an emphasis on quality, natural fabrics and a strong, unfussy design aesthetic to create a feel of understated luxury throughout. In keeping with the Scandinavian love of nature, interiors are often layered with natural materials such as wood, leather, sheepskin, linen and wool, which break up hard clean lines while adding texture and warmth.

As we approach autumn and the nights draw in, it will be the perfect time to focus on your interiors.
