Bedroom / June 26, 2018 / Oriane.
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.
When it comes to childrens decor, my eye is always drawn to white, airy rooms with playful details to add warmth and colour. With his sweet ladybug bedding and special wooden toys out on display. There is space to let him play unrestricted, with stylish storage boxes to tidy away any clutter afterwards. It is also a room that can easily grow with him for years to come. Whilst monochrome is the trend of the moment, it can be surprisingly tricky to get right. The key is to find a balance and you can do this by adding in more soft tones and textures such as wooden accents, a fun wallpaper or contrasting prints. Not only does it make the space more interesting, but it does not restrict you to one overly coordinated look. Have fun with styling and sourcing your key pieces and it will shine through in your childs room.
On a piece of tracing paper placed over the aerial photo of your building, sketch a diagram showing a large arc around the building to show the path of the sun throughout the day. This drawing is called a site analysis diagram. Remember, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Draw other lines on this diagram to indicate the best views around the building.
A better option is to create a base of soft neutrals like grays and taupes mixed with pastel colors—try lavender and celery green if you want to avoid the standard pink and blue. Also avoid high-contrast palettes and busy patterns on walls, bedding, or rugs or risk making your child feel energized instead of relaxed.
