How to do Scandi Style with Norwich Sunblinds
The combination of the colder nights and being at home has meant that most of us are watching more box sets than usual. Nordic noir crime dramas are a top choice on a Saturday night but let’s face it, while watching the tense drama unfolding, we’re also admiring the stylish interiors. Scandinavian design is famed for its minimalism and simple, clean lines. There is also a huge focus on natural light, which makes blinds the ideal choice for your window dressings. The Norwich Sunblinds team can help you inject some Scandi style into your interiors.
Scandi style for your living room
If you want to create a Scandinavian feel, a neutral colour palette is essential. Grey and white feature heavily in interiors but you can also add colour. A bright like a sunshine yellow or electric blue creates a stylish contrast or try introducing just a hint of colour with pastel shades such as blush pink and pale mint.
The colour you choose for your living room blinds can set the tone of the whole room. Not sure which colours will work in your home? We can help. Contact the Norwich Sunblinds team to kickstart your Scandi style journey.
Dine in Scandinavian style
Scandi style is the opposite of ostentatious, everything looks effortless and is pared-back to the bare minimum, with organic touches such as plants. Rooms are clutter-free with furniture kept simple and floors are often in a pale coloured wood. Roller blinds with their stylish, simplicity of design, are ideally suited and make a great choice for blinds for the lounge, kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms. Here at Norwich Sunblinds all our blinds are made in Norfolk by expert craftspeople.
To create a Scandinavian look, use neutral colours for your bedroom blinds and add texture, for example, opt for simple white or grey bedding and place knitted or faux fur throws at the end of the bed. Rattan accessories or lamp shades also work well. If you don’t want to go all out for neutrals, you could try adding cushions in a geometric or folk-art inspired design. At Norwich Sunblinds, we make soft furnishings too! We can source from a huge range of fabric designs to complement your handmade blinds.
Step into a Scandinavian bathroom
In Scandi style there is a focus on combining wood and metal in interiors, making wooden shutters ideal for the bathroom and a great alternative to bathroom blinds. At Norwich Sunblinds, we offer made to measure Plantation Shutters in slatted or solid wood. Our shutters offer huge benefits: they are long lasting, noise reducing, insulating and low maintenance. There is also a 5-year guarantee (as with all our blinds and curtains) giving you peace of mind. Want to know more about how shutters could work in your home? Contact us, we’d love to help.
Hygge your home!
Scandi style isn’t just about minimalism, it’s about creating a certain feeling in your home. The word ‘hygge’ is a Danish word for cosiness and encapsulates the feeling of being warm and comfortable. It’s about enjoying the simple things in life, whether that’s curling up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate (with marshmallows of course!) or spending time at home with your family. You can create the hygge look with a few simple design touches, try adding a cosy throw and comfy cushions to your sofa, and dot a few candles around the room. Bedroom or living room blinds in a warm tone such as a russet red would work a treat!
Whatever blind type you go for, pleated, roller or vertical, we will do all the measuring up and fitting for you. Leaving you free to relax and get into hygge mode! Get in touch to find out how we can help you create your Scandi style home.
