New Nordic originated as a Scandinavian niche style. It’s perfect if you don’t like either minimalist and dark or stark and white, and if you love a colourful, lively bathroom. Typical features include playful shapes, light wood, rounded edges, curvy furniture, good-value design and plenty of colour. Warm pastels mixed with bright neons – often pink and yellow. Patterned fabrics and leafy plants such as monstera and fiddle-leaf fig enhance the cosy, inviting feel.
