We’re stripping it back this FW, with a clean-cut Homeware trend sure to inspire an interior update – not to mention the most enviable college bedroom. Introducing Scandi Cool: the Scandinavian-inspired trend that has us drooling for a white-washed space packed with pops of playful prints.
Mastering interior styling, Scandi décor perfectly balances cool with quirky, accentuating exposed brick or effortlessly white walls, with clean geometric prints and color-blocked basics. Scandi style is all about minimalist function – but with pug-printed notebooks and kitten pajamas catching our eye, we’re finding a function for everything in this collection!
Geo print duvet cover $15, copper cushion $9, Love standing light $14
Dressing up your dorm? Your space can be bare and uninspiring (ugly carpet guaranteed) – so contrast simple surroundings with wall art and vibrant soft furnishings for a room that packs a Nordic punch. This gorgeous copper cushion should do the trick; or have your college squad over in style with this bright and glowing LED "Love" sign. Though "simplicity" is the Scandi watchword, posters, graphics and bold typography take center stage with this trend.
Sugared almonds candle $3.50
3 Drawer storage $9, "Make today a really good day" plaque, $4.50
This trend's mix of strong pastels add a fresh vibe to any space. Cool definitely goes cozy with our geometric throws and warming string lights (a comfort for students far from home). So which shades should you shop for? Bright spearmint, apricot and sunshine yellow lead this collection. Sweet, stylish and tastefully Scandi, sprinkle color throughout the room from your bedding to your PJ's!
Keep study sessions chic with Scandi desk essentials, from perfect pencil cases to polka dot notebooks and pompom pens. Remember: an organized space is an organized mind; storage can be your sanity! A helping hand when getting your stuff from home to halls, our geo printed storage keeps college clutter under control… (we’ve got you covered, secret slobs!).
Copper continues as this season’s hottest metals – so think color-blocked accessories for a true metallic moment, or go for trimmed cushions and candles for a wink at Scandi’s staple shade. With adorable prints and novelty faces scattered throughout the Scandi Cool collection, your squad will be desperate for an after-class Primark spree.
Now you’re educated on this season’s Homeware trend essentials, it’s time to start taking notes (a shopping list, obvs). So review your fave Scandi picks, and head in store for an interiors study sesh!
