Scandinavian Style Interiors: What's Hot In 2018

I take a look at some of the most talked about Scandinavian inspired interior trends for 2018.


Because it's unlikely you're going to restyle your home interior every time a new trend comes around, try instead to incorporate small items and small changes to how your room looks. This way you'll save a whole load of money (instead of buying brand new furniture every time!) whilst still being able to create the look you want. For example just changing the covers on your pillows can give your sofa a whole new style. 

Right, here they are, 2018's biggest predicted trends:

Although big on organic materials, leather isn't the most popular Scandinavian-inspired choice. We're seeing a major transition to worn leather pieces in Nordic interiors, like these leather-backed wooden chairs in Swedish stylist Lotta Agaton's home at La Maison d'Anna G. They're rustic without looking too antique — and look great with a sheepskin blanket tossed over their back. We're thinking this might be a Swedish play on the current American mid-century modern obsession.

With distinguishable features such as exposed brick, distressed finishes and polished concrete, the industrial trend is set to be as popular as ever.

The new year will see a fresh twist on the aesthetic at Next Home where simple crockery sets and minimalist statement lighting reign supreme.

“Copper has been hugely popular for more than five years but it has reached its peak and brass is now the metallic of the moment,” says leading futurist Victoria Redshaw from London trend forecasting agency Scarlet Opus. “We are predicting the eventual return to favour of silver metallics, look out for this starting next year.”

Greenery is still leading the way into 2018, so incorporate plenty of lush indoor plants into your design and pair with a palette of warm, earthy tones, plus treasures from your travels. This trend also calls for a deliberate mix of fabrics, from kilim rugs and Moroccan blankets to contemporary geometric prints and Ikats – make sure at least one colour runs through each of the materials to keep the look coherent yet informal, and experiment with the scales of the pattern and textures to add interest.

Grey Walls

The black-and-white aesthetic has been done in every corner of Scandinavia — which is why we're so excited to see grey walls making a comeback. They provide the same neutral, monochromatic appeal, but dial it back a few notches, as seen in a home from Swedish real estate company Alvhem.
