Brighten your home with the Scandi Pop trend

Give your home an uplifting mood with a colourful Scandi-style scheme

Scandi style isn't all about layering white on white – this season, it has been given a colour upgrade with fun pops of pastel for a fresher, brighter feel. Get out of neutral and update a pared-back look with a palette of pretty pastels or zesty neons.

A Scandi vibe works in any kind of home and blends the best of mid-century
design heritage with contemporary trends, country credentials and urban
attitude. This trend is easy to add to a neutral room - simply add a row of bright cushions to your sofa, line up some colourful crockery in your kitchen or paint chairs, shelves and picture frames in a mix of shades. For furniture, stick to classic, Scandi-inspired designs in natural materials with fluid lines.
