Hayley Flangan asks when is Scandi not minimalist?
Rediscovering podcasts, I recently listened to ‘The Great Indoors’ an interior design series by Sophie Robson off the telly and Kate Watson-Smyth of ‘Mad About the House’ fame. In one episode they actually said that Scandi minimalism is dead. I had to rewind and check I’d heard that right! Although I disagree and think there is a place for the clean lines, monochrome colour palette and curated belongings that minimalism dictates, after mulling it over I can see where they are coming from. With the move to the warmer new neutrals and COVID lockdowns enforcing a global nesting, maximalism is taking centre stage. Here’s a few steps to embrace maximalism while retaining your Nordic aesthetic.
