Scandi Chic

Why do we the love the Scandi style so much?  It is the elegant, understated simplicity; subtle palette and attention to form that defines the Scandi look.  Combined with a relaxed, laid back and cosy ethos. 

They nail it with fashion, with the likes of Ganni, Acne and H&M’s And Other Stories, Arket and Cos amongst my favourite brands.

But how do we adopt the Scandi chic into our home and everyday lives?

For me nothing beats a candle.  It is the warm glow of the flame that is the epitomy of relaxation.  Both a solo scented candle, or a grouping of candles in holders or lanterns will fit the bill perfectly.

Embrace your inner hygge and lounge in your chunky knits, with a steaming hot drink and a candle.  This is Scandi living at its best!

Enjoy the ritual of morning coffee.  Forget your favourite chain and become your own barrista!  Serve your lattes in a ceramic beaker or add your americano milk from a glass milk bottle.  Along with a single flower stem, or a rustic tray of treats, this makes the coffee ritual a fine art.

Embrace the art of minimal styling.  Whether your entire home, a room or a few key pieces styled minimally, this will add a grace to your home.
