URBAN ESCAPE

How do you make minimalist décor feel cosy, not stark?
It can be tricky, but Scandinavian homes strike a happy balance between the two; function-first furniture designs and considered accessorising create a comfortable, uncluttered space. We've taken note...

Live

That warm feeling you get when you're completely content. The Danish call it Hygge (hue-gah) - and it's captured by the simple rituals that just make you feel good - lighting a candle, finishing a book, the perfect morning coffee... Scandi home-styling sets the scene for these moments.

Style notes

The Kari 3 seater blue sofa in Scansi-style living room.

Designer's pick

"We kept the shaping simple and sleek with Kari. It's a retro inspired sofa; finished in a bold blue linen effect fabric with contrasting turned wood legs"

dine

Food and socialising make people feel good, so it's no surprise that hygge-seekers consider the dining room the heart of the home. Here's how to create a relaxed and informal setting for meet, greet and eats.

Style notes

The glass-topped Helena table with grey and oak-effect dining chairs.

Designer's pick

"Through the modern glass top you can see the craftsmanship of the oak-effect frame crossing at the centre - a design feature that gives the Helena character."

Sleep

The bedroom should inspire calm and relaxation - and for us it's where the soothing aesthetic of the Scandi ethos really comes into its own. See how we've layered up textures to bring warmth to the serene tones.

Style notes

A marble print white and grey bedding set.

Designer's pick

"Marble accessories are everywhere at the moment. We've taken inspiration from its soft, smoke-like print to create this bedding set. I'd style it layered with blush cushions and a knit throw."
