Using Mid Century Curtain Fabric For A Scandi Look

Our mid century curtain fabric is a great way to bring retro Scandi chic into your home. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Create a Scandi vibe with mid century curtain fabric

Create a Scandi vibe with mid century curtain fabric

There’s something about Scandi. Bright and bold, with clean lines and a minimalist vibe, the signature design of Sweden, Norway and Denmark has the magical power to calm your home and clear your head. Scandi fabric has a distinctly retro feel, too, and with our mid century curtain fabrics ready to order, you needn’t trek to Stockholm to find patterns that turn back the clock.

While Scandi design is most commonly used to cheer up a kitchen or a children’s bedroom, our wide selection of mid century curtain fabric means you can bring that Nordic vibe to any room in your home that needs a refresh. Perhaps you’ll choose our Scandi Birds curtain fabric with its sophisticated block print birds. Maybe you’d prefer Bergen fabric in grey for its calming colours. Or why not make bring fun prints into your interiors with Freddie Fox Fabric, which would look fabulous if you’re looking to create a Scandi children’s bedroom.

Match mid century curtain fabric with clean walls, wood floors & warm rugs

The secret to achieving a retro Scandi look is to avoid overloading the rest of your scheme. With your mid century curtain fabric supplying the colour, do as the Scandis do and go minimalist elsewhere, choosing plain white walls that reflect sunlight and offer maximum brightness during the winter months.

You should take the same stripped-back approach to the floors, too. You won’t find carpet in many Scandinavian homes, with families preferring a light-coloured or natural wooden floor. By keeping things minimalist, you’ll draw the eye to the pattern of your mid century curtain fabric and make it sing a little louder. At the same time, don’t be afraid to scatter around a few rugs and cushions that complement your curtain fabric pattern – or even try painting one item of furniture in the room, like a chest of drawers, to add a splash of vitality.

Accessorise around your mid century curtain fabric to complete the look

By now, you’ve created the foundations of your retro Scandi scheme, but keep that ‘minimalist’ keyword in mind as you complete the look with a few choice accessories. Everything should nod to the pattern and tone of your mid century curtain fabric, so use that to inspire a statement vase or lamp in an accent colour. Remember, if you’re on a budget, it’s better to add just a couple of accessories you love, rather than swamp the room with knick knacks: this look is all about quality, not quantity.

Finally, for an authentically retro Scandi flourish, consider adding a wood burner to the corner of the room. This finishing touch will ensure your scheme becomes a snug family haven on chilly winter evenings – simply draw the curtains and settle back on your favourite cushion in the firelight.
