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.

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.

The barn-style door is pretty easy to identify thanks to its use of heavy and often reclaimed wood. Even though there are modern variants that replace wood with glass steel and other materials we still prefer the classic and believe it is the best of the lot.
One amazing feature of Scandinavian bedrooms is the neutral backdrop that they offer making it possible for you to decorate with statement pieces and sculptural additions in a truly exquisite fashion.
