Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
One amazing feature of Scandinavian bedrooms is the neutral backdrop that they offer, making it possible for you to decorate with statement pieces and sculptural additions in a truly exquisite fashion. It is almost like a blank canvas that is waiting to be filled with personality and distinct identity. Color is a great way of doing this, but make sure that you do not go overboard in this regard. When it comes to Scandinavian bedrooms, it is always curated pops of color that work best. With blue currently being the hottest hue in Scandinavian homes, this is a smart way forward. Once the accent hue has run its course, you can switch it out for another seasonal hotshot.
Plan for the light. Lighting is the first and most important element we discuss in every project. Choose full-spectrum light bulbs, available in all kinds of configurations, not fluorescent tubes or spiral bulbs. Poor lighting—too warm or yellow and too cold or blue white—causes anxiety and depression. While you want to let the natural sunlight in during the day to encourage a happy mood, lighting at other times should be subdued to encourage quiet and rest. To transition from day to night, consider adding dimmer switches and attachments with three levels of intensity to overhead lighting as well as floor and table lamps, and choose the right window treatments. There are so many choices, everything from delicate light-filtering shades and sheers to certain blinds and draperies that offer complete black-out.
