Scandi bedroom decor

Scandi bedroom decor

While I love crisp white walls, I do have a soft spot for wallpaper, especially in a bedroom. Wallpaper can transform a bedroom from a bland space in to a cosy, warm and dreamy space which is exactly what you want a bedroom to feel like. I’m not talking about bright coloured wallpaper or anything over the top but instead simple patterns and prints inspired by nature and the colours found in nature. Scandinavian bedrooms often feature this kind of wallpaper which adds a soft, romantic vibe to the bedroom.

Another benefit of nature-inspired wallpaper is that it’s an easy and effective way of bringing the outdoors in which a key part of Scandinavian interior design. It also adds a lot of depth to the room and creates a mood that is romantic, calm and cosy. So if you’re drawn to wallpaper, these dreamy Scandi bedrooms will inspire you. And you’ll see that there are lots of ways to make wallpaper work, depending on your decor style.

When you don’t want to wallpaper a whole room, a wall mural is a great way to add interest to one wall. This bedroom has a simple, pared back wall mural in soft tones that adds texture and depth to this minimalist room. The blue-grey gradient is subtle and reminiscent of the sky. Even if your taste leans minimalist, adding a backdrop like this can create that dreamy mood in your bedroom. There are plenty of Scandinavian wall murals that you can choose from whether you prefer a bolder or subtler look.

Nature inspired wallpaper doesn’t always have to be green — any colour found in nature works but greens, blues, greys and earthy tones tend to be the colours favoured in Scandi bedrooms. If you prefer neutral tones, shades of beige and brown can work just as well like in this bedroom. The design is very much inspired by the outdoors with leaves and rabbits but the white and soft beige tones keep the look muted. The saturated terracotta bed linen goes really well with the wallpaper and provides a nice contrast.

For something a bit more dramatic, a bold green wallpaper or wall mural works really well. While the wallpaper in this bedroom is bold, it’s been paired only with lots of white and neutral greys. Also, just a part of the wall has been wallpapered. This prevents the wallpaper from becoming overwhelming and instead creates a bold romantic vibe. Adding a piece of art adds even more depth and dimension to a wallpapered room but you have to be careful when picking art that works with wallpaper as you don’t want a clash.
