Dreamy Scandinavian Bedroom Inspiration

Spread the love

Since moving house (well, since about six weeks before we moved in) I’ve been wildly exploring the internet and interiors magazines for inspiration for every single room in the house – particularly our bedroom. We’ve mostly finished the kitchen and dining room, so now it’s on to the bedrooms and upstairs bathroom. I’m really loving the softness of Scandinavian-inspired decor at the moment, especially during these chilly months.

As you know, sleep can be really tricky for me so creating a calming, comforting space in the bedroom is incredibly important. Neutral colour schemes, soft fabrics, ambient lighting and space to move around are all important – I find clutter and dark, gloomy spaces really stressful and difficult to relax in. Bedroom essentials include:

  • Lots of blankets. Even in summer, I do love a good pile of blankets.
  • Neutral colour schemes, particularly greys, are my utter favourite. I feel like you can play with accent colours very easily if you have a neutral pallette.
  • Scented candles, like my favourite This Works or Jo Malone if you’re feeling spendy. But make sure candles are well out of the way of fabrics and papers – battery-operated candles are a great compromise.
  • Prints on the walls. Inspirational quotes are great to bring that feel-good factor upon waking up.
  • Delicate lighting. There’s nothing worse than harsh lighting in a bedroom, that’s why I think fairy lights are such a good way to go.
  • No technology. I’ve talked about this before but blue light and techno-gadgets in the bedroom are a big no-n if you’re after a good night’s sleep.

These are some of my favourite images, all taken from Pinterest. You can find them all plus many more here.

I feel like there’s a theme to these! And I could basically snuggle down in any of them and have the best night’s sleep ever. I love the fairy lights in the last one especially.

    I like the idea of all white with a splash of colour. Although I get scared about white bedding lol

      We have a black cat who sleeps on our bed so I’m forever hoovering haha but I love white bedding so much, it’s hard to part with it for something more practical!

    I love these! Our bedroom is a very, very light shade of blue with light grey wood (panel) floors which would go so well with any of these things. It always feels so cold in there from the starkness of the colours, but I think that’s why texture is so important (as evidenced by the throws and fake furs in these). Great choices, Louise, and I am now really hankering for some choice items.

    I only buy white bedding. There is something so fresh and wonderful about slipping into clean white sheets every night! I also have a black cat and a gray cat, I keep a lint roller next to my bed and “roll” the bedspread daily. Totally worth it!!
