20 Scandinavian Design Bedroom Ideas

Scandinavian design appeals to just about anyone. There is something about its simple, elegant, and clutter-free, clean lined look that draws you in and captivates your attention. Scandinavians are minimalists and their design tactics prove that you can create the illusion of more, with less. Peace and serenity are what the basics of decorating a bedroom should be about. It is your room that you retreat to, rejuvenate in, and get away from the hustles and bustles of life. The last thing you want, is to feel anxious in your bedroom, due to over cluttering of furniture, knick knacks, color schemes and more. If you love the calming feel of the Scandinavian design, here are ways you can create the same look for your bedroom.

Color schemes

Choosing neutral tones for your bedroom is where it begins. You want to enhance a simplistic appeal, and overstated, loud or vibrant colors can disrupt the peace of a bedroom when trying to create an unassuming look and feel. White on white is very basic, clean, sophisticated and breathable. Black and white together, something that mimics a black and white photo, is the right angle of a Scandinavian look. Beiges, tans, creams, and grey, all work well with simple chic and cozy, for this design. An idea is to cover your walls in a light gray and make them pop with all white trim. Or use one wall as a focal point, for instance, the wall behind the bed could be painted an outdoorsy color while retaining the rest of the walls white.

Use textured colors for contrast

While you want things to look as simple and clean as possible in a Scandinavian room, too white and clean can have the opposite effect of cozy. It can seem downright sterile, so be sure to add textured colors into the mix, along with natural woods. Black and white photos, neutral toned fabrics and textured colors through foliage set in visible spaces.

Natural light

To add an open, airy look and feel to the room, use all the natural light you have in the room. Many Scandinavian rooms don’t even incorporate any window treatments at all, but leave the windows open and curtain and shade-free. If you choose to hang window treatments, keep in the same frame of mind as the rest of the room and keep it simplistic, clean and neat. Light weight, sheer white drapes made of light fabrics, such as cotton or linen, are popular.

Think nature

One of the biggest elements of Scandinavian décor, is to think, nature. Bringing the outdoors, in, gives a calm, relaxing and serene feel, one that you can easily accomplish with potted plants and other pieces of nature that fit your Scandinavian theme. It is also a way to add a splash of color in a cozy corner.

The more simplistic your design, the more free-spirited and relaxed your mind and soul can be when you step into your Scandinavian oasis to rest, relax, sleep, and rejuvenate.
