Get the Simple Scandi look with these five key buys

Put together an on-trend Scandi scheme in an instant with Ideal Home and Very

A classic look that doesn't scrimp on character, we think a Scandi scheme is particularly suited to family homes thanks to its pops of fun colour and eye-catching geometric patterns.

Try it anywhere – in a living room, kitchen, playroom bedroom or study. You can start relatively small and layer up the look as much as you dare. And these pieces from our collection at Very are the perfect jumping-off point.
