Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
Arrange furniture wisely. To help parents remember the elements needed for a healthy and well-balanced bedroom, I developed the acronym SPEL—Sleep, Play, Enjoy, Learn. Every room should be able to provide all these functions. In her system, each activity is given its own distinct zone but the rooms primary functions of relaxation and sleeping are given the most attention. Proper placement of beds, storage, toys, desk, etc. varies from room to room and with the childs age, but one thing is certain, the positioning of these stations and the colors, finishes, lighting, and scents will make a big difference in how the room is perceived and used.
We absolutely love Scandinavian bedrooms that feature a nifty sleigh or platform bed, as this instantly becomes the focal point of the room without trying too hard. You can build on this by adding an exposed brick wall that is painted white, custom bedside pendants, a few black and white posters and an understated nightstand (probably an upcycled piece from an old tree stump) to complete a truly relaxing, nature-centric bedroom design that is distinctly Scandinavian.
