The modest charm of the Scandinavian style attracts us all instantly. In the classic Scandinavian interior, functionality is valued above aesthetics, and the color palette is modest. In fact, minimalism is an integral feature of this style, which makes it ideally suited for modern homes, whose owners appreciate the lack of plenty of extra things and cluttered space. Recently, creative designers have learned how to skillfully combine this Nordic style with other styles to bring individuality to the atmosphere of each home.
Today we look at 56 amazing Scandinavian-style bedrooms, from simple to chic. Each of them is unique in its own way, and, nevertheless, they all seem equally attractive. Presented interiors combine the best of past, present and future. Filled with the feeling of summer and the approaching autumn, this style is ideal for those who want to give their bedroom a bright, fresh and at the same time stylish look. And a few small changes will allow you to feel warm and comfortable here in winter evenings. The design of the bedroom in the Scandinavian style is a skillful combination of simplicity and sophistication.
One of the surprising features of Scandinavian interiors is the neutral background, which makes it possible to decorate the room with additional elements, making it truly exquisite. It is almost like a blank canvas that waits for it to be filled with individuality and originality. Color is a great way to do this, but the main thing is not to overdo it. When it comes to Scandinavian bedrooms, it is very important to choose the right background color. Currently, the most frequently used background color in Scandinavian interiors is blue or white. After the background color has become obsolete - no longer popular or just bothers you - you can change it to the next season hit.

Adapted Scandinavian style is not only aesthetics, but also ergonomics. The latter is very important for owners of small bedrooms. If you do not have enough space, the simplicity inherent in the Scandinavian style, the use of a neutral color palette with a predominance of white color, the rejection of unnecessary accessories and decor are really a great advantage! However, thanks to the use of rugs, wooden bedside tables and natural ventilation, your small bedroom will not seem "sterile" and dreary.

In the Scandinavian style, the emphasis is on efficient use of space. That is why, even in the largest bedrooms, only those square meters that are absolutely necessary are used. You can use colorful bedding or a bright spot on the wall in a light pastel color to add color to this setting.

In addition to color, there are other ways to give your bedroom a visual contrast. When it comes to the Scandinavian style, one of these ways can be a variety of textures.Soft cow hides that serve as bedside rugs, walls upholstered with natural wood, and a hint of copper glistening in the form of a pendant lamp ... Such details really have a big impact on the overall atmosphere of the bedroom and perfectly fit into the Scandinavian style. Pay attention to the choice of bed frame: it must be elegant and made of natural wood.

We all like Scandinavian bedrooms, which are decorated using stylish beds with a base in the form of a sleigh or basement - they instantly become the center of attention. You can take it as a base by adding a white brick wall, custom hanging lamps, some black and white posters and a low bedside table (maybe made from an old stump) so that your bedroom can clearly see a calm, relaxing Scandinavian style.

While white in the Scandinavian interior needs no introduction, do not underestimate the importance of black and gray. Black helps identify and highlight the architectural features of your room and provides the perfect visual balance. The shades of gray enhance this seemingly monochromatic appearance and give the Scandinavian bedroom a refined aura. Use this approach by adding simple straight lines, shelves with hidden fastening and cabinets, whose outlines are lost on the pale background of the bedroom!

One of the key features of the Scandinavian style is the use of wooden furniture, floors and other interior details. Natural wood creates a feeling of light simplicity, calm and serenity. Leave the doors and other wooden interior elements in their natural, raw form.

The Scandinavian style of the interior involves the use of modern furniture with its smooth outlines and streamlined details. However, strict straight lines are not alien to this style.

Looking for a way to add a little shine? Use metal accents, for example, lamps in industrial-industrial style or furniture trim matte silver. Not only is the metal striking, it also serves as an elegant contrast to the natural elements that fill the room.

Bright textiles of the most daring shades are often present in Scandinavian interiors. Sometimes modern and sometimes rustic, these patterned elements can determine the mood of a room. Often, Scandinavian textiles have openwork patterns, bringing softness and charm to the room they "inhabit." And you can experiment and add a bold geometric pattern in black and white!

Below we see the same bedding as in the previous example, but this time in combination with brighter colorful accents, such as curtains and striped pillows. Pay attention to the interaction of black and white and ultra-bright interior details. Mixing neutral tones with colorful ones allows you to create a large number of different design options for the same space.

Sometimes, even in a modest color palette, patterns themselves are in the center of attention, like black and white bedding by Marimekko (from Crate. Barrel).

When adding individual details to your interior, try to imagine the big picture that you would like to put into practice. If color is important to you, use bright bedding, pillows or some other blotches of saturated tones. But even if you like simple bright and spacious white bedrooms, it is not a bad thing to add a touch of warmth using a patterned blanket or indoor plant. Most importantly, have fun mixing different elements that highlight the beauty of the Scandinavian style!
