Along with a common culture and language, the Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark share a decorating style that is light and airy, simple, and clean. It’s no wonder that the Scandi style is popular all over the world, not just in the chilly north. This peaceful bedroom from Lifestyle captures the serenity of Scandinavian décor.
In Scandinavian interiors, the emphasis is on magnifying natural light to combat the long, dark winters, so a repetitive color palette of whites, beige, cool blues, and soft grey is a good choice to use throughout your bedroom. If you’re looking for bedroom paint ideas; darker, earthy shades of charcoal, brown, navy and black can be used sparingly as accents colors for furniture and accessories, providing light and shade and creating visual interest. Remember, a huge emphasis is placed on white bedroom ideas and color schemes, so it may be best to start with white or off-white walls as the base.
Scandinavians have a real appreciation of natural, raw materials, from ceramic, clay, wood and stone to tactile linen, wool, felt and fur. Floors and walls are neutral in color, whether it’s a dark ceramic floor to contrast against pale walls or wooden floorboards that have been whitewashed or polished to bounce light around a room. Window treatments are simple and pared back to let in as much light as possible.
