If the decor and furniture of bohemian, shabby chic or rustic styles cause you a feeling of lack of air and you find them uninhabitable or inhospitable, then the ideas and tips below for creating a simple bedroom are destined for you. Goodbye unnecessary, hello functionality and organization!
How to create a simple, but comfortable bedroom?
As we have already talked about the minimalist bedroom decor, today we will pay special attention to the Scandinavian style as an alternative or rather a variant of minimalist design. Well, where to begin ?
Style characteristics: focus on the palette
White is omnipresent in Scandinavian design, but not the only one possible. Nordic tradition generally gives priority to white to ensure maximum light during long winters. Fortunately, there are plenty of other pale colors for you to choose from. If absolute white is not an acceptable option for you, you can go for some shade of off white. Play with gray, beige, ivory, pink or add other neutral colors to your palette as well.
Darker colors like black and gray are also starting to show up, providing additional contrast to other decor elements. And to "warm" the cool colors of the palette, add some "warm" color, coppery orange cushions or a yellow blanket. Or a bright color like green, turquoise or a mauve carpet for example. And there you have it, a good counterpoint to white, black or gray. Beautiful, isn't it?
The Scandinavian style focuses on moderation and balance thanks to clean lines, without artifice. When it comes to furniture, we opt for mid-century modernity. The typical Scandinavian bedroom leaves a lot of free, empty space between the furniture. This gives it an airy, and cool look in order to escape the claustrophobic feeling during the long, cold winter. If you are looking for a simple bedroom style that suits both a man and a woman - the search is over!
Scandinavian design aims to create a calm and minimalist atmosphere, in harmony with nature. Natural wood is in the spotlight as much for floors as for furniture and decorative objects. Beech, ash and pine are particularly popular because of their pale hues.
The preferred materials
Other organic materials such as wool or stone also offer a touch of elegant simplicity while allowing for varying textures. Don't forget the greenery: plants will embellish the space in addition to adding a good dose of vitality and freshness.
The Nordic look combines the useful and the pleasant, aesthetics and functionality. This style is a very good solution to optimize limited areas.
Nothing too much! Get rid of any furniture you don't need that blocks natural light. This is the golden rule. But simplicity does not exclude comfort. The Scandinavian bedroom has a minimalist clean design, while remaining elegant.
And so as not to rhyme neutrality with severity, we recommend warm lighting with brightly colored luminaires to counter the “clinical” or “sterile” impression of such simplicity. Do not hesitate to have several sources of light in the room: a ceiling lamp, bedside lamps … Candles, for their part, are an excellent way to create an inviting and intimate atmosphere.
You have great freedom in the choice of accessories: vintage, rustic, industrial or other style, it's up to you. The bedroom is your personal space, do not be afraid to personalize it to obtain the best result and transform it into your bubble of relaxation, serenity and well-being. Thanks to the essential rules that we have given you, you have everything you need for a Scandinavian interior of your bedroom.
