Many people picture hempy colors and bland textures when they think of organic cotton but Pottery Barn’s selection of organic bedding in designer patterns is proof that this couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact we gravitated towards their breezy palm and nautical navy rope designs before we even noticed that they were made of Oeko-Tex® certified organic cotton.
Have you heard about lamb “down” pillows and comforters as an alternative to fowl feathers which are often harvested in a way that is harmful to ducks and geese? Holy Lamb Organics produces its eco-wool comforters pillows and other bedding in the USA using exclusively organic cotton fabric and domestic wool local to the Pacific Northwest without the use of dyes chemicals or synthetic fillers.
Plush cowhide rugs accent walls draped in wood and a hint of shimmering copper in the form of a cool pendant light are all trendy ways that you can decorate your Scandinavian bedroom.
The Ulisse bed is perfect for offices that double as guest bedrooms – or if you’re a workaholic that just can’t seem to tear yourself away from your desk. The multi-use piece serves as a 5-foot desk during the day and folds down into a queen-size bed. The best part is that opening the bed doesn’t disturb your work so you can pick up right where you left off the next morning.
Styles such as coastal nautical and tropical are pretty close to one another and each one of them easily borrows from the other. Blue is a great color for all three of those themes and wall murals and decals inspired by ‘island life’ can further take the bedroom down the coastal route.
Elegant simple and beautiful; the unassuming charm of Scandinavian style draws us all in instantly. The classic Scandinavian design placed functionality above aesthetics and kept color to a bare minimum.
We absolutely love Scandinavian bedrooms that feature a nifty sleigh or platform bed as this instantly becomes the focal point of the room without trying too hard. You can build on this by adding an exposed brick wall that is painted white custom bedside pendants a few black and white posters and an understated nightstand (probably an upcycled piece from an old tree stump) to complete a truly relaxing nature-centric bedroom design that is distinctly Scandinavian.
While white needs no introduction in Scandinavian-style interiors do not underestimate the importance of black and gray in the overall scheme of things. Black anchors the room helps define and highlight the architectural features of your choice and offers the ideal visual balance.
