the STYLE RULES

Take in­flu­ence from Scandi folk art

Style at Home (UK) - - RIBBON STORAGE JAR -

Give Nordic decor a sea­sonal up­date by com­bin­ing red and white with pops of pink and blue. PAINT A BLUE sky By paint­ing walls in a cheery blue shade, it’ll feel like a sunny day no mat­ter what the weather’s like out­side. PICK SIM­PLE FUR­NI­TURE Stick­ing to neu­tral colours and un­der­stated shapes means you can go to town with ac­ces­sories.

HAVE FUN WITH FOLK Cel­e­brate the sea­son with folk art-in­spired cush­ions and cosy ca­ble knits in tra­di­tional Christ­massy colours. FAKE FLOOR­BOARDS Wooden floor­ing com­ple­ments the sim­plic­ity of Scandi decor. If you’re not lucky enough to have in­tact orig­i­nal wooden floor­boards, fake it with a re­al­is­tic lam­i­nate in a nat­u­ral fin­ish.

Make Yule­tide guests feel wel­come by adding a few fes­tive touches to spare bed­rooms
