10 Scandinavian Design Bedroom Ideas
by RJ Living | February 1, 2020
It seems that the whole world has fallen in love with Scandinavian design. And why not? Simplicity and function are the driving forces behind Scandinavian style furniture which can apply to all types of spaces - large or small. Scandinavian design focuses on form and function without sacrificing beauty. Clean, straight lines with just a hint of curve are present like in our range of Scandinavian chests and drawers, looking effortless and with a purpose.
What Makes It Scandinavian Style Design?
Long, chilly, winters and shortage of natural light in Scandinavia which comprises Denmark, Norway and Sweden, created a need for spaces that made the most of sunlight. Finland and Iceland are sometimes included on this list but they are Nordic countries along with the three aforementioned. Scandinavians love nature and this is evident in their design, with pieces defined by their neutral colours with light wood like oak pine or beech. Due to the long and harsh winters in these countries, it’s also important to create warmth, thus the cosy appeal of the design.
Scandinavian design ideas today are styled with predominantly white walls to bring the light in. Interiors feature a colour palette that has mostly neutrals like beige, nudes and whites yet with pops of color and an addition of natural elements like wood and stone. Continuing with the no fuss approach, it often blends in with the light and uses textures and layers like cushions and throws to create a minimal yet cosy home.
The charm of this design that makes it so popular is its timelessness. With emphasis on quality, it creates a space that feels open, useful but still beautiful. With so many options today, it’s easy to hoard and pile up on things, but Scandinavian design has spaces that are stylish and practical. If you want to embrace the Scandi style to your home, why not start with the cosiest part of your house or apartment?
Here are 10 Scandinavian bedroom ideas to try:
1. White Elegance
Go back to basics with a predominantly white bedroom. This neutral colour is the cornerstone of modern Scandinavian design. Use it on your walls, floors or even bedding to make your furniture stand out.
2. Rustic Neutrals
If white is not your style, pick from the colour schemes of grey and cream for a neutral palette inspired by nature. Choose from Scandinavian bedroom furniture in oak and beech to complete your look.
3. Mirror Magic
Scandinavian design maximises the light and mirrors are a great way to bring more light in. Let these reflective touches open up your space to a brighter bedroom.
4. Lighting Accents
To add more light into your Scandi bedroom invest in light fixtures that are airy and enhances natural light. Choose light fixtures that aren’t too heavy in design but instead have clean lines and minimal style.
5. Cosy Adventure
Add the hygge feel to your bedroom by layering bedding with pillows and throws. Nothing like getting cosy on winter nights with plush bed linen made from the best materials.
6. Pastel Pops
If you like Scandi design but prefer more colour, additions of pastel hues can still create the simple and modern vibe you’re looking for. Try pastel tones for bed linen and homewares like vases and trays.
7. Try Wall Panels
White blank walls need not be the staple, jazz up your walls with wall panelling in stark white for a twist on the white wall bedroom canvas.
8. Minimal Artwork
Keep up with the Scandi design in your bedroom while creating a focal point in the room with a large piece of scandi artwork. Our art prints come in a variety of sizes and colours to match any space.
9. Next To Nature
Nothing like a love for nature than plants! Bring the outside in with plants and foliage to complete your bedroom accents.
10. Style for Less
It’s easy to get caught up in buying Scandi furniture but remember that these pieces must have a function in your bedroom, so purchase items with practical beauty in mind.
