You won’t see elaborate bedding sets here with dozens of coordinating accent pillows in a gazillion patterns. Here the emphasis is on simple pleasures and having nice things that last for many years to come. Think high-quality, warm bedding and soft, finely crafted linens you can pass down to your kid’s kids.
Sleeping spaces are spare by design, free from all the distractions that can keep you from resting your body and mind. Super soft linens and bedding with a playful pattern in a soothing gray/green keep the room from feeling too stark.
In addition to pattern, texture is equally important. Whether it’s from a shaggy rug, fringed out blanket or sumptuous throw pillow. Also, adding one small touch that’s really personal or even playful helps to give a room warmth and personality.
When a space is primarily white and clutter-free, simple everyday objects like a well-made chair or your favorite puffer jackets can become a colorful focal point. Less is more when it comes to Scandi-style so choose what’s out on display carefully and you’ll love the final result.
In spare spaces you can afford to do a bit of bold pattern. You can even mix and match, as long as there is some unifying element. In this room, it’s the vibrant red found in both the blankets and stuffed animals.
The modern custom bed with built-in night stands is built to be low to the ground to create the sleek, contemporary feel of the space. The fireplace was darkened with a special application for a streamlined, modern look that contrasts with the neutrals and whites throughout the space.
Scandinavian design features neutral colors and plenty of natural light like in this bedroom. Niki Brantmark, author of The Scandinavian Home, says, "Placing your furniture to get the most natural light and using curtains that allow the light to filter through will leave your home feeling more cozy and comfortable."
A custom-built platform bed is dressed in comfortable gray bedding, which pulls in the modern finish of the fireplace. A chic, contemporary armchair pairs with a black floor lamp for a cozy reading spot.
