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.
Yet because of the wide use of push rugs wooden bedside tables and ample natural ventilation your small bedroom will neither seem sterile nor dreary. There are ways beyond color to give your bedroom visual contrast and turning to a multitude of textures is an added bonus when it concerns Scandinavian style.
A popular misconception among design enthusiasts is that the barn door is only suitable for bedrooms with a rustic or farmhouse flair. In fact this is exactly opposite of the truth and these gorgeous wooden wonders look even more appealing when they slide their way into contemporary bedrooms.
Swinging palm trees or a lovely mural of life on the beach coupled with the right decor and accessories can easily get the job done. Bedside tables in heavy wood or a whimsical canopy bed enhance this appeal and complete a truly remarkable tropical bedroom.
With that in mind we have another lovely collection of kids’ bedrooms today and this time we delve into a style that allows you to use vivacious color diverse textures and loads of playfulness. It’s time to go tropical!
Adapting a Scandinavian style is not just about aesthetics alone and it also gives an ergonomic advantage for those with a small bedroom. If you are short on space the inherent simplicity of the Nordic style its use of a neutral color palette with white being the predominant color and the shunning of unnecessary accessories and decor are indeed big advantages!
As taxing as the whole experience can be at the end of the day an expression of joy on their faces is all it takes for us to feel that the entire topsy-turvy ride was worth it all!
