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 door is the perfect solution in this regard as it simply slides away ensuring that you need not account for the typical swinging white door. Of course you will still need some wall space for it to slide away but that seems like a fair bargain indeed!
Shouldn’t the bedding that envelops you for five to nine hours a day follow the same kinds of health and ethical standards you set for other aspects of your life? Nowadays there are lots of options for organic bedding free of chemicals and synthetic fertilizers that also happen to be stylish and on-trend. Read on for some of our top picks!
Balance this by using decor that shouts out tropical and introduces textures that are as nature-centric as possible. If you want a bedroom that combines both the tropical and coastal styles then throw in a few ship wheels and starfish along with a bamboo bed frame and pops of corals and greens to get the best of both worlds!
Spotted at the 2015 Architectural Digest Home Design Show Milano Smart Living’s flip-down bunk beds double as artwork for children’s rooms. The large-scale murals that disguise the beds when they’re not in use can be customized to suit your tastes.
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.
But not all fold-out beds need to transform into flat walls. If you’re looking for a way to maximize seating as well as sleeping space these sofa murphy beds from Montana Murphy Beds get both jobs done and even feature extra built-in storage on the sides.
In fact minimalism is an inherent feature of this style making it absolutely perfect for contemporary homes that love to veer towards the minimal. But over time creative designers and homeowners have cleverly combined other styles with the Nordic approach to decorating to create a multitude of styles that brings a distinct personality to each setting.
