This week’s home design makeover masterclass is inspired by House Beautiful Magazine. The Peaceful Scandi Collection uses light neutrals, natural wood tones and plenty of natural light. Simple lines create a calm, open feel to room design. Everyone needs a little scandi nurturing at this time of year so we’re giving you the opportunity to explore this trending interior design style. Relax into each of our six room design makeover challenges and let light feel like a tonic to the long dark evenings!
Let’s take a quick look at the collection, and what we love about it.
The ceiling height in this room really lends itself to a Scandi design, with so much space and light! The decor creator app is great for interior inspiration. You can choose to have a high pitched ceiling on your design, there are no limits to your creativity.
This Scandi inspired open plan kitchen is a fun challenge, as you can choose to have painted or wooden kitchen cabinets. Both styles work well with the Scandi brief. We also love the natural feel of these Edgard outdoor stools by Vincent Sheppard. The woven texture really works with a Scandi design, and when you’re considering a new room design it’s great to add texture as well as colour.
This is a bathroom interior, with lovely simple Scandi inspired furnishings. Despite being a smaller room there is plenty of scope to show off your design flair. With a half tiled wall you can choose tiles and paint or wallpaper to match. Selecting the flooring can add to the simple Scandi theme, or chose to switch it up and add a splash of colour.
The simple, calm design features of a Scandi design lends itself to a small home office space in the corner of another room. The light touch of the design means that the office furniture does not dominate the rest of the room, whilst still having a beautiful design. The perfect inspiration for anyone that needs to add work space to their home. When we were creating this challenge we were especially inspired by Ethnicrafts simple Whitebird desk. Great use of form and function, this would look fab in any office space. This challenge is engaging, use the decorative features such as art work, rug and soft furnishings to create a cohesive design.
This challenge was to design a space for entertaining. The dining set has a strong Scandi influence, we love the curved design and use of simple wood. The challenge is to use the furniture in this room to inspire you. Choose lighting, a rug and plants that would complete the design. It’s fun to bring the room design together and make it feel more homely.
This a new twist on the theme, a hotel chic bedroom which has been influenced by Scandi to achieve a sophisticated interior design. Our inspiration for this look came from the Amura Panis Bed by 2Modern It’s a real showstopper with the extra wide headboard. It has the neutral tones and simple lines of the Scandinavian design with a luxury feel. This design can have a few dark tones as well as the neutral palette, as it adds a new dimension of drama to the room.
This living room design was an extra challenge as the room was split into two separate areas with an open archway between them. This can be used for inspiration on how to use a tricker space in your own home.
As this was a Scandi inspired living room we were looking for a peaceful design with the concept for hygge. Hygge is a Danish idea of warmth, gathering together on long winter’s evenings for company and wellness. We think the soft textures on the lovely Little Petra chairs by Viggo Boesen add to the cosy feeling. The great designers amongst you will find other soft furnishings that will compliment them. Enjoy moving the furniture around to make it fit the room. A marvelous escape from the cold and dark outside! Re-imagine how you would makeover this room to give a beautiful, functional living room.
