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. 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.
Who could have too much Scandinavian decor inspiration? This post tours three small apartments with one bedroom, each decorated in simple and sleek Nordic style with bright and spacious appeal. These spaces would make the most of their long winter months thanks to the bright white-heavy interiors and streamlined furniture. In fact, their limited floor plans actually emphasize the cozy Scandinavian themes – these are homes that where the walls embrace the soul, where layered textiles and intimate lighting just beg for a comfortable reading session in the evening.
Today we take a look at 36 awesome Scandinavian bedrooms that vary from the chic to the classic, and yet each one seems equally captivating in its own unique way. With summer and fall ahead, the style is also perfect for those looking to give their bedrooms a cheerful, breezy and stylish look that can be easily morphed into a cozy winter feel with a few simple changes down the line.
One of the first things you notice about Scandi décor is the very limited palette. White predominates, with touches of gray, black, pale blue, or pastels taking up secondary positions. Bright or strong colors are used very sparingly as accents, if at all. This bedroom from Avenue Lifestyle shows the typical Scandinavian color scheme. Scandi style? Yes, please! Nordic bedrooms may seem cold but they aren’t because due to many accessories they look really cozy.
The main feature of all these bedrooms is the color scheme – it’s neutral and white is the main color; black, green, gray and many other colors may be added but the atmosphere is still calm. Scandinavian style may be very diverse: if you add some wood, an old-fashioned hearth and retro accessories – and here you’ve got vintage style. For a warm impression choose fluffy animal skins, squared pattern and warm bedspreads. Have a look at more ideas below and choose yours!
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. It is almost like a blank canvas that is waiting to be filled with personality and distinct identity. Color is a great way of doing this, but make sure that you do not go overboard in this regard. When it comes to Scandinavian bedrooms, it is always curated pops of color that work best. With blue currently being the hottest hue in Scandinavian homes, this is a smart way forward. Once the accent hue has run its course, you can switch it out for another seasonal hotshot.
