When I think of the Scandinavian home styling trend I think of muted tones, linen textures, bare pale wood with a little monochromatic touches and of course a lack of clutter. That’s how I’ve interpreted this trend for my home with the addition of a growing collection of plants too. Our home is a new build so a blank canvas of white walls, grey carpet and wooden doors, in my eyes a perfect fit for this home style trend.
Recently JYSK, a homeware store founded in Denmark and now an international brand, got in touch asking me to share how I give my home that Scandinavian feel, when it’s really a new build in the North West of England! Long term readers will know that we only moved in to our house in the summer so we are still putting our stamp on it and experimenting with styling and furniture in each room. I love the fresh feel of a brand new home pair with simple Scandinavian home styling.
I’m still playing with our dining room which is open plan following on from the kitchen. We get so much natural light that I’m desperate to keep so the white walls are definitely staying. I’m still disappointed that my dresser top is too tall for this room but I think popping a painting above the bottom of the dresser helps.
I’ve gone with greys for our bedroom and kept a clean monochrome feel to the accessories. I don’t like rooms that are too monochromatic as it can look overstyled but having a few accessories helps break up the white and grey.
Our shared workspace and music room is very much a work in progress still. What you can’t see it the piles of books and boxes next to this desk! Having a tidy (and pretty) desk helps so much with my productivity and I love quirky storage like this wooden box. I’d like more and then attach them to the wall for a functional feature.
I love the simple Scandinavian feel these accessories add to our home.

There are lots of simple ways you can bring a bit of Scandi styling into your home. Whether it’s with having a bit of a clear out and decluttering, thinking of your use of storage, or even just adding some plants! I love how simple and design led the products at JYSK are, and they are really affordable too.
