Create calmness and harmony by layering accessorising and textures in the same blues and neutral colours. Soft, fluffy cushions and throws will add some warmth and cosiness to your space. We love these faux Mongolian Duck Egg cushions from Wilko.com, (£5).

To finish the Scandi look bring nature indoors by adding neutrals and wooden shades that’ll compliment your blue hues. Try a side table or coffee table such as Made.com’s Orion side table, (£99). For similar designs, take a look at this vintage coffee table from Maison du Monde (£29)
