While the sun is still treating us to some glorious autumn days, the temperatures on the White Isle have begun to drop noticeably now that we are in October – especially at night! For island residents this means that after months of summer madness, Ibiza is finally beginning to calm down, it’s cool enough to dig out our favourite jeans and we can light up the long, dark nights with atmospheric candles! Fall lovers all over Ibiza are rejoicing that the time has come to prepare for the impending colder months by updating our homes and wardrobes with some cosy and comfortable winter warmers. Skandish, a stylish boutique in the picturesque village of Santa Gertrudis, stocks a veritable smorgasboard of covetable household and fashion items to help you get that ‘hygge’ feeling.

A Danish word that describes ‘a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment’, like all things Scandi style the term has launched a huge trend that encompasses everything from clothing to soft furnishings and decorative pieces. Step forward Skandish! A fusion of the words ‘Scandinavian’ and ‘British’, the shop prides itself on hand-picking quality brands from each region that represent the finest in quality and style. And with sustainability close to store owner Nicky’s heart, most of the brands stocked are organic, fair trade and environmentally friendly.

On our latest browse around Skandish, we discovered a multitude of autumn and winter must-haves. Stock up on some of American Vintage’s soft long-sleeve cotton t-shirts for the transitional period and indulge in the selection of cosy knits in a range of delectable charcoal and grey shades reminiscent of the stormy sea. A chunky woollen cardigan is sure to keep you warm on those long beach walks; finish the look with one of Mapoesie’s chic pastel coloured scarves or Nkuku’s grey cashmere designs. A designer Nicky discovered in Formentera, we also fell in love with a chic Elena Hurtado coat. Those hunting for a bargain will love the sales table, which bears a wide array of seasonal discounted items, and the Nearly New section brimming with pre-loved garments and accessories – we spotted a rust-coloured Mulberry handbag perfect for fall!

At home, light up the dark nights with an aromatic scented candle, such as H4K’s Spicy Cinnamon or one of Skandinavisk’s nature-inspired fragrances, which include ‘calm of the boreal forest’, ‘carved from glaciers’ and ‘freshness of the seas’. Skandish also stocks a wide range of wellness teas – the perfect hot drink to help you recover from the closing parties, holiday indulgences and even a New Year’s hangover!
