For beautiful, calming interiors, with soft colours and a minimal feel, the new ‘Japandi’ trend is one to fall in love with.
Across the highstreet stores are embracing the essence of the trend and there’s a lot of products to easily create the look.
Choose soft tones, a few simple accessories, mix dark and light woods, light￼ grey, greens and choose pieces that combine the essence of scandi and Japanese styling.
There’s a new interior design trend in town – introducing ‘Japandi’: a hybrid of traditional Japanese minimalism andScandinavian decor. Also known as ‘japanordic’, this fresh style has been deemed the biggest new design movement for 2018. Combining the modern-rustic appeal ofScandi stylewith the traditional sophistication that’s associated with Japanese design, it’s no wonder that it’s a growing favourite amongst designers.
With the natural rustic scandi look so on trend, and a love of using natural materials, we find this gorgeous wooden bench with cotton plaited seat to good to be true, especially at the sale offer price of £69.99 (was £89.99) from Zara Home.
Use in hallway for a seat, for an outdoor low table or even by the bedside – a useful little piece of furniture.
Today’s featured store is Brighton based Abode Living. Nestled in the popular shopping area of North Laine this store offers a curated collection of gorgeous home accessories, tableware, soft furnishings and lighting.
We love the range of brands they stock, including Marimekko, House Doctor, Madam Stolz, HK living and Broste Copenhagen. There is a wide range of product and price so you will be sure to find something you love.
IKEA is a great go-to store to find furniture, especially if you are on a budget. The Scandi brand knows good design and of course it keeps us coming back.
We spotted this cute armchair in store and think it’s prefect for an additional seat in a living room or bedroom. It’s compact and simple shape means it’s great for small rooms, and the padded quilted sides brings some interest to the design.
It’s calming and quiet, with soft tones of greys, pink, sage green and lilac. The new Nordic trend has the usual Scandi feel but with more relation to the earth with textures of leather, wood and influences from global prints.
Don’t over complicate with too much fuss but choose pieces with purpose and need. Keep minimal but textured for a warmer less clinical environment.
