Simple Scandinavian Home Styling with JYSK UK

Simple Scandinavian Home Styling with JYSK UK

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.

What do you think of the Scandinavian trend?
Do you have it in your home?

    I love the colour grey and recently had a new kitchen fitted in pewter, simple and clean cut style.
    I’m loving the dining table chairs and that house shaped box.
    Your house looks lovely x

    I always have loved scandinavian style. If we ever moved and changed our decor I would totally use it. There is something always inviting and modern about it and love the simplistic accessories with the black and white with greenery. Although I am too huge into color I would have to blast paint or brightness on at least one wall. Keep your white walls. I wish I had white walls all ours are cream or have a radiator on them I have no plain walls. Love your style in your home. It’s beautiful.

    I probably do have it although I didn’t know it! I love simple clean lines and yes monochrome but with a pop of colour. Funny how macrame is back in isn’t it? Looks really great Morgana. xx

    Hello Morgana. Lovely to meet you via #HOMEETC. Lots of my favourite things here. Who doesn’t love Scandi ans succulents! In fact, I adore cacti! I think it’s because even I can keep them alive. You’ve selected some lovely pieces, here. I particularly like the ceramic cactus.

  7. October 13, 2017 / 4:09 pm

    I love all the bits and pieces you’ve chosen — just gorgeous! Thanks so much for linking up pet, so nice to see what you’ve been up to xx #HomeEtc

    I love scandi style and it looks so fab in your home, I love white and grey so much my whole house is a version of, but my style is a bit more shabby ! I have to say though I am feeling a bit bored of it and craving clean lines. I have similar chairs in my kitchen and love them x

  9. October 13, 2017 / 9:48 pm

    I love those pink and grey plates! I really want to introduce more houseplants into our house – the little pops of green amidst the grey and white (we have the same!) look lovely.

    It looks gorgeous- we are gradually trying to move to a Scandi look in our house, but we live in an old Victorian psychiatric hospital so it’s a bit of a slow process! Lots of inspiration here, thankyou

  11. October 16, 2017 / 4:11 pm

    Gorgeous details! I love the plant in it’s little house! And the offset mirror.

  12. October 16, 2017 / 5:39 pm

    Oh it is all so lovely – grey has to be my favourite colour and I would have it in every room if I could. I love scandi style I’m just not sure if I could pull it off in my messy home!

  13. October 16, 2017 / 9:08 pm

    Some great things here, Scandinavian design always looks so elegant x

  14. October 17, 2017 / 11:28 am

    I absolutely love all the little bits and pieces you’ve chosen and they’re styled so beautifully. I just came across Jysk recently so will have to check out their website. Thank you for linking up to #HomeEtc

  15. October 17, 2017 / 1:48 pm

    Ah your home is lovely Morgana! I have that Bloggers Gonna Blog postcard up on my wall too. I absolutely love that big round mirror you have up on your wall. Looks like you guys and well and truly settled in your new house. Gorgeous post xx

  16. October 17, 2017 / 2:20 pm

    Oh wow, everything is so gorgeous! This is a home I can only dream of right now. I love that you’re breaking up the monochrome with a bit of colour here and there x

  17. October 17, 2017 / 2:42 pm

    I love the scandi style. The less clutter approach is much less stressful. Thank you for linking up with #bloggershomes x

  18. October 17, 2017 / 2:56 pm

    I’ve been looking for a hanger for a plant and I love the scandi boho feel of this one. Some gorgeous pieces here x

  19. October 17, 2017 / 10:12 pm

    It isn’t a style that’s fit into our home or us really BUT it looks perfect in so many others homes and I do love to look through photos of this style. I love the hanging bucket with ropes and the pink/grey plates x

  20. October 18, 2017 / 12:50 pm

    I need the house for my cacti – it looks great and it would stop them attacking me when I get near!

  21. October 18, 2017 / 1:58 pm

    Amazing blog! it look gorgeous and stylish. Thanks for share!!

  22. October 18, 2017 / 10:11 pm

    We adore JYSK, we’re lucky to have a few stores just around the corner, but it’s amazing. I love the pieces you’ve picked out, I might have to go hunting for some of these – especially that cacti.

  23. October 19, 2017 / 11:02 am

    The Scandis always get it so right! We’ve just bought a couple of macramé plant hangers for our bedroom. I remember making them as a kid when they were in fashion in the 70s… showing my age!

  24. October 24, 2017 / 3:09 pm

    Loving all these bits Morgana. I sometimes wish we had a newer home so that we could have bits like this in our house xx
