Nordic by nature | Trending

Check out the Scandi-inspired trends that are making their mark right now (with a minimum of fuss, naturally).

Suede leather ladder, $180. Having storage on display for all to see is a very Scandi thing to do - it also ensures you keep exceptionally tidy. Adorned with jewellery and scarves, this piece also doubles as artwork of sorts.

Billie pendant, $169. Look for feature lighting that has a fuss-free design. This large bowl shade provides great ambient light for living and dining areas.

Lounge stripe top, $435. Simple stripes are the order of the day - just avoid navy, which risk looking beachy/nautical and therefore confuses the overall look.

Scandi deep blue toaster, $169. Inspired by a summer Nordic sky, the wooden trim enhances the sleek modern design with a sophisticated Scandinavian feel.

Iona sandals, $355. Invest in sandals with a platform sole with season, and ice cool tones that’ll work with numerous pieces from your wardrobe.

Klippan deer baby blanket by Nordic Fusion, $109. This stylish and luxurious wool blanket by Klippan of Sweden uses the blue accents so popular with Nordic themes. A pop of yellow keeps things interesting.

Felt storage box with lid, $6. Felt storage ticks all the right boxes, as does incorporating it with leather-look details.

Esfir knit, $180. Mild days still call for a warmer layer and shades of white fit Scandi’s minimalism brief.

Thankyou Earl Grey and Clary Sage hand wash, $8.50. A collaboration with Australian visual artist and designer, Sarah Kelk, the packaging is on trend, while Thankyou’s work behind the scenes is admirable (the social enterprise has funded a series of WASH programs designed to end global poverty). Available at Coles.
