Simple, chic, and understated, Scandinavian design combines a cool, contemporary feel with functionality and a dash of hygge cosiness. Want to channel some Scandi vibes in your décor? The Rosendahl Design Group is the perfect place to discover homeware brands that celebrate the best of Danish craftsmanship and style.

There’s no need to overhaul your home completely – with the addition of a few well-judged decorative pieces, you can infuse your interiors with a tasteful nod to the Nordic. Here are four subtle styling tips to try.

Minimalist White Vases

Less is more when it comes to decorating the Scandi way. Clear the clutter and showcase a few elegant ceramics on a mantelpiece or sideboard. Crisp white porcelain vases with a geometric texture look modern and effortless.

Lyngby Porcelæn’s signature vase, with its tactile oblong grooves, has been a Danish design classic since the 1930s and is available in a range of sizes; cluster a few of varying heights together for impact. The same simplicity is found in Lyngby’s sculptural Tura vases, featuring sharp ‘pleats’ in the glazed porcelain. Use them to hold long-stemmed flowers or cuttings of plain foliage – but they’re just as beautiful displayed on their own

Simple, Clean Stripes

For a truly Scandi feel, you’ll want to avoid overly ornamental homeware and textiles – intricate patterns and chintzy prints are the antithesis of Nordic simplicity. Instead, a fresh stripe is striking but unfussy, whether it’s on a throw, a rug or an accent accessory.

The Kähler Omaggio collection features hand-painted horizontal stripes, in an array of colours, on a range of modern bowls, candleholders and serving plates, which make perfect centrepieces. For a minimalist Christmas tree, we like the metallic striped baubles from the same range.

Colour-Popping Tableware

Scandi design isn’t all about muted shades: use stronger tones strategically to contrast against a paler palette. Porcelain tableware in bright hues is a sophisticated way to bring a dash of colour to your dining room and kitchen. Block colours, rather than busy technicolour patterns, keep it Scandi and look even more effective mixed and matched with classic white tableware.

To get the look, try Lyngby’s Rhombe tea set, with its playful ‘artichoke-inspired’ design in coloured glazes. Or add a pop of colour to your table settings with the Kähler Ursula collection.

Sustainable Wooden Crafts

Creating a chic Scandinavian vibe with its neutral tones and textures needn't feel uninviting. Kay Bojesen’s playful creations use only FSC-certified wood and are beautifully crafted to bring any room to life.

The wooden collection, including the brand’s much-loved monkey - which was originally created as a toy - will make all ages smile, and be a welcome gift for even the most design-conscious parents. For foodies, Kay Bojesen also offers an assortment of kitchenware crafted from sustainable wood. From the salt and pepper mills to the serving tray, each design shows off the details of the natural material.

Delicate Winter Motifs

Embrace some Danish hygge and add subtle Yuletide touches as the festive season approaches. Rather than an explosion of OTT Christmas décor, think simple sprigs of spruce, a beautiful Advent candle to light in the evenings or a scattering of whitewashed pine cones.

The Kähler Hammershøi Christmas tableware collection epitomises a Scandinavian interpretation of festiveness: white porcelain is artfully decorated with delicate, pared-back Christmas motifs and illustrations of Nordic nature, such as pine branches, tiny hearts, miniature robins and reindeer. Christmas spirit done with Scandi style.
