This seasons Summer style change over takes us on a new journey as Scandi Style morphs gently from the clean lines, neutral simplicity, minimalism and Scandinavian functionality that emerged in the early 20th century, developing now into New Nordic, a more globally influenced warmer, cosy new look.
So the journey began as Scandi style gently moved into ‘Hygge’ (which you may wish to know is pronounced ‘hoo-guh' ) the Danish word for cosiness, and was all about just that with pre-loved and gently worn in furniture, pastel pinks, grey and white with beige and soft light woods. New Nordic utterly embraces the concept of Hygge and is said to be the new cosy style for those who appreciate the little things in life - bring on the rattan plant pots, minamalist, monochrome artwork and gold accessories shopping!

Moving to New Nordic style from Scandi or Hygge is quite simple, and involves layering textures, introducing global Nomadic and Bohemian influences. Soft Ash - light toned woods and grown up pastel colours are key with the New Nordic look, subtle hints of gold contrast beautifully with the introduction of pops of bold colour from Ikat, Moroccan, Scandi and Geometric textiles, tassels and pom poms. New Nordic creates the perfect look for children's rooms too!
We see pigmented blues and greens contrast against a muted palette of pastel shades of matte pink, Icelandic blue, white, lavender, and soft sage green accessories and furniture.
Scented candles feature this festive season, soft, cosy lighting and of course what fun can be had with a Nordic Pine Christmas tree, twinkle lights and Christmas decorations in this style!
