1. All White
For a fast-track to Scandi style, try layering different shades of white and cream. Add a rustic vibe with distressed furniture, natural wood and fresh foliage.
For similar shabby-chic dining chairs, try using Old White chalk paint, £18.95 for 1ltr, Annie Sloan (opens in new tab)
2. Prints Charming
Bring a country scheme up to date with geometric prints and pops of fresh colour. Ice blue, cool white and pebble grey enliven mid-century furniture, whilst patterned wallpaper adds a contemporary touch.

3. Shelve It
Give a country living room a Scandi edge by opting for a soft, neutral palette with bursts of leafy green. Focus on simple, white décor with minimal displays; open shelving with rattan baskets and dainty artworks has a crisp, modern feel.
Lack shelving, from £5 for a 30cm length, Ikea (opens in new tab)
4. Material Gains
If an all-white scheme isn't for you, try a bolder take with deep blues and tactile materials. Complement the moody hue with cool concrete and steel textures – a trio of industrial-style lamps or silver-lined pendants complete the look.
For similar stools, try the vintage industrial high stool, £190 each, Hicks & Hicks (opens in new tab)
5. Style Statement
Give simple, country-style furniture a modern Scandi lift with bold, angular accessories. A large statement lamp in slate grey, square artworks and matching cushions give the room a more structured feel.
For a similar lamp, try the Pole, £120, Habitat (opens in new tab)
6. Metal Works
Liven up a neutral dining room with some bold metallic accents. Here, a copper jug, toaster and string shelving add dimension to a cool grey palette, whilst the striking copper pendant steals the show.
Large Merle copper and wood pendant light, £217, Artisanti (opens in new tab)
