Scandi-chic 4 ways


Cool, calm and collected. Whoever coined the term Scandi-chic, pinned down the characteristics why such a stylish, uncluttered and practical style settled for good into the hearts and homes of Australians a few years ago. The Scandinavian style has been such a hit ever since because it embraces functionality and simplicity, while looking effortlessly stunning. There’s one thing that Scandi style is not, uptight - what’s not to love from taking the pressure off yourself?

The Scandinavian style looks and feels uncluttered, focuses on practicality and should aim to be simply beautiful.

This style makes a feature out of timber, a construction material that has been around since way back. It has that certain timeless je-ne-sais-quoi that suits pretty much all interior designs, especially the Nordic - great reflective properties that maximise the light indoors; its clean lines pair well with minimalist vibes, creating a fresh and feel-good atmosphere; and it helps with the whole sense of connecting to nature and bringing alfresco inside.


Wood accents play a huge role in casual, liveable kitchens. They let your personality shine through endless possibilities, here are some ideas:


Scandinavian homes are famous for their white interiors. Pale-coloured appliances will help bounce light around, and make your home look brighter. Complement them with metallic fixtures and details to create a striking, clean style. Truly minimalist and charming at the same time, like the Scandi White Aspect kettle & toaster set.

White is probably the most famous Scandi colour. It bounces light around and makes your home look brighter. Complement it with pale-coloured kitchen appliances for a clean style that is truly minimalist, like the Morphy Richards Scandi White Aspect kettle & toaster set.
Black provides a dark accent that pairs well with white for the full Scandi look. Provide your kitchen with a deep accent thanks to your Morphy Richards Black Scandi Aspect kettle & toaster set.

Deep, dark interior accents can be just as compelling to go fully Scandi. Black works well with white because it doesn’t overwhelm the simplicity of a white-only interior design. Throw some texture in through polka dots, golden metals or faux sheep skin for a mysterious appeal. Once you go Scandi Black with the new wooden-trimmed Aspect kettle & toaster, you’ll never go back.

Greys and tans create a relaxing appeal through smart accents, keeping in check the sense of scale against the trademark of white walls. Bring instant cosiness with a grayscale and layered textiles, or go industrial-inspired with geometric prints, steel and chic accessories - like the Scandi Titanium Aspect kettle & toaster pair. The aim of this option is to provide a darker contrast (without going to the extreme of black) in which your eyes can rest from the everlasting white.

Soft pastels inject a little joy of colour but remain easy on the eye. Energise a rather dull room with lovely pale blue accent backdrops - like the Morphy Richards Azure Scandi Aspect kettle & toaster set.

Soft pastels are also a great way to tackle the traditional monochromatic look. Pale blue for example, injects a little joy but remains easy on the eye. Layered textiles, fur and carefully chosen colour accents can energise a rather dull room - boost it with lovely pale blue and bright accent backdrops. The Scandi Azure Aspect kettle & toaster set adds a tinge of colour where you need it most.

Celebrating in a truly Scandi-chic fashion, the new Scandi Aspect kettle and toaster sets are simple, stylish and functional. The kettles ensure you can make up to 6 hot drinks at a time quicker, with their 3kW element and 1.5L capacity.
