Scandinavians are known for a few things. Tall, handsome men, IKEA, a happy, fulfilled way of life, and of course, clean and classic interior design that inspires serenity and inner peace. The bedroom is really one room in the house that should inspire us to be calm and relaxed as much as possible. And hopefully, by bringing in some Scandinavian bedroom design, you too can be relaxed, fulfilled and happy.
So, we’ve rounded up some of the most beautiful Scandinavian bedroom designs to help inspire you. Enjoy!
Scandinavian design flourished in five Nordic countries in the 1950s, and is typically all about simplicity and function.
Pops of Colour
Scandi rooms are always known for having very neutral backdrops. Think white, white, and more white.
Don’t think that this doesn’t mean you can’t use colour in your Scandi bedroom. If anything, this actually helps. You can add pops of colour through your use of accessories and, once you’re bored of them, replace with a different colour! This will keep your room looking fresh and modern, and can be the perfect way to instill a relaxing mood.
If you’re looking to achieve a very minimal Scandi look, and don’t really fancy painting (or you live in a rented property), why not try adding pops of colour with plants? This method doesn’t require a lot of effort, yet can have a great colourful impact.
Another key trend involving Scandi design and colour is the use of muted, pastel colours. Pink and green are the real standouts here – but any earth or rustic tones will do.
Use of Space
The Scandi way of life isn’t just about style – it’s also about function, especially for those who are looking to be smart with their space.
If you are short on space, the simplicity of a Nordic aesthetic will really help make the most of your space. Stick with predominantly white walls, to help give the illusion of a bigger room, and shun away any unnecessary accessories and décor – instant Scandi!
Scandis have a real appreciation of everything natural, which means you don’t have to stick to just white when decorating.
Adding natural textures to a room can really help bring that Scandi vibe alive. Think about wool, fur, wood, and stone. Raw materials provide a real contrast against the white backdrop, as well as enhancing a natural earthy feel
Accessories like natural cushions and sheepskin or cowhide rugs are really the key here, and can make a big impact without you having to completely wood panel one of your walls.
