THE NEW SCANDI RUSTIC STYLE
How to create cosy in your home
At this time of year Scandi-style can seem a little too minimal, a little too cool. So turn up the warm with the addition of some rustic touches to get your home cosy for Autumn Winter.
Right now we’re all spending so much time at home we want our space to be comforting and inviting. The new Scandi-Rustic vibe will help you create a place you never want to leave!
SCANDI RUSTIC STYLE TRENDS FOR THE HOME
We’ve talked about Hygge before – the Danish word for creating a cosy environment – but this season it’s all about Scandi-Rustic style. It’s a combination of the clean lines and neutral palette of Scandinavian décor with Rustic elements. Think natural materials and textures such as wood, sheepskin and rattan mixed in with simple greys and whites. The result, a relaxed and inviting space that makes you feel cosy and warm.
Rustic décor in Scandinavian style is a nod to the Nordic environment – we’re thinking nature, blue skies and fresh wintery days. It’s a charming style that’s both natural and modern in equal measure.
How to get the look – Scandi Rustic style
Here are some easy ways to work rustic décor into your Scandi-style home
RUSTIC ACCESSORIES FOR THE HOME
Rustic style has evolved from our love of all things Nordic but it’s slightly warmer in style. The use of raw, stripped back woods, (faux) plants and shaggy sheepskins combine to create a calm, comfy space to relax in. The look works brilliantly teamed with the greys and whites of Scandi-style but here you’re looking for neutrals and soft natural shades to complement the cooler tones.
USE A VARIETY OF MATERIALS
Woods, rattans and wicker work so well with clean whites and greys. In a world of rustic decor, wood is your best accessory. But modernise it with metals, slates and cement so that it fuses with Scandi style rather than moving into the more country look.
Wooden stars and hearts can be interwoven with fairy lights to add warmth or dress up a slideboard with wooden accents mixed in with plants and tealights. To add a rustic touch to your space opt for cool greys and winter whites or warm up your space with natural wood shades.
RUSTIC STORAGE SOLUTIONS
Go rustic with rattan. Not only is it a style statement but a storage trunk that is also a side table is a winning addition to any home. Or a trunk that is also a footstool. Duel purpose home accessories are great if you’re short on space and the natural texture adds warmth. We have a whole range of rattan accessories for the home but we’re loving the side table, footstool and trunk bench. On-trend but also totally practical.
WARM THINGS UP WITH CANDLES
Warm those darker evening with candles. We have so many styles in store and online but we love our range of wooden candle sticks – from distressed wood to bleached wood we’ve got a range of looks from Scandi to Rustic. Give a nod to Nordic with natural texture and mixed with the neutral palette of Scandinavian style, they will really elevate your space.
And the raw, distressed style of our cement scalloped edge hurricane lanterns are seriously stylish and should be pride of place in any living space.
SMALL STYLE TOUCHES
Add little rustic accents throughout your space. Our twig balls are great for sideboard and fireplace style. And don’t be afraid to mix up materials – metals and woods, ceramics with wicker – that’s really what the Scandi-Rustic look is all about – the combination of the rough with the smooth.
SCANDI ACCESSORIES FOR THE HOME
The simple addition of a throw and some cushions can turn up to cosy on any space but opting for greys and whites will ensure the Scandi-look. We love our range of cream and light grey throws and our Happy Place cushion speaks for itself. It’s no wonder if one of our best sellers!
The base colours of any Scandi home are grey and white but add in some black to bring in another layer of cool. From diamond patterned rugs to black metal picture frames and gorgeous plant pots and planters, the monochrome look adds that cool edge to your rustic additions.
Decorative bowls, picture frames, tealights and plant pots are just some ways to you can introduce the look to your home this season.
