The eye-pleasing design style of a Scandinavian interior can be portrayed as stunning, elegant and minimalistic, an effortless aesthetic that can be quite charming. A classic Scandi-inspired space places functionality above aesthetics, where subtle neutral touches and lots of negative space are at the forefront. A minimally designed bedroom might seem cold to you, but styled the Scandi way with lots of accessories decorating the space, helps to infuse a coziness that is anything but cold. A soothing atmosphere of neutrals, other colors may be added to the color scheme (but they are usually more muted and toned down), such as shades of blues, mauves, soft grays, charcoal, and milky whites, which helps to capture the light. Creating a restful atmosphere is what is all about in your Swedish bedroom, but be sure to bring in some of your own personality by combining this style with a twist— such as an ornate chandelier. Candles are always a great addition, as they create a nice warm and inviting atmosphere.
Decorating your bedroom with a Scandinavian style can be very diverse, it can look anywhere from vintage to industrial depending on the materials and accessories you select. Be sure to add layers to your space, with the use of throws, lots of pillows, coverlets, area rugs and fluffy animal skins. Your flooring should be wood is you are staying true to classic Scandi-style, with the addition of a cozy area rug for warmth. This style is playful and fun, so don’t be afraid to add color! It can be in your linens, pillows, area rugs, art, accessories, furnishings and even flowers. And last but not least, no Swedish designed interior is complete without a fireplace or a wood burning stove, although this does not necessarily have to be in your bedroom… but it would be a great excuse to add one!
