Time to visit a cozy Scandinavian home and see how you can create a cool, tranquil space with a quirky wallpaper and natural tones.
This Swedish bedroom seen via Entrance Makleri is the perfect example of how a simplistic room can get more personality by adding a characteristic wallpaper. When you have a wallpaper like this, there is no need for much else art on the wall, just look at how a small frame is enough. The graphic blue wallpaper goes great along with the soft beige and white textiles, the carefully selected design pieces and the soft wood touches.
(At the bottom of this post you can find links to my selection of items for recreating the style of this room).
Get the look:
Here you can find my selection of items, some are the same and others are similar, to help you create the same look as seen in this cozy and quirky Swedish bedroom.
- Wallpaper: This Raphael wallpaper available from Nordic Nest has a modern touch but speaks of a sophisticated and romantic home interior from bygone times. Designed by Daniel Långelid for the Swedish company Sandberg Tyg &Tapet.
- Ceiling lamp: The pendant linen lamp is a great addition which brings a soft, airy touch. I found a similar lamp on Etsy and another lamp on La Redoute (pictured)- or you can follow this DIY post and make your own for less.
- Bedside-table: I love the sculptural piece used as a side table, and found a similar one in black from AM.PM via La Redoute which is a great alternative. This compact and original side table will add a touch of the exotic to your space. Sculpted from 100% solid mango wood, it is hand-finished for an artisanal touch.
- Vase: To compensate for the black bedside-table, a nice beige vase on top is a great balance. The Pastille vase from Cooee Design has a slim fit perfect for a narrow space, and is hand made and hand painted which makes every piece unique.
- Flowers: Add a touch of blue with these natural dried Globe Thistle Enchinops from the Little Deer or choose any other ones you like from your local flower shop.
- Wall lamp: Talking about the bedside-table, the lamp above it on the wall is the Noc wall lamp by wrong.london for HAY available from Made in Design, an adaptable die-cast aluminium wall light with a faceted shade and a smooth powder coat finish.
- Bench: The woven wood bench at the end of the bed is a great touch, and adds a natural feeling to the room. FDB Møbler’s J83B bench found on Finnish Design Shop is an attractive wooden piece designed by Jørgen Bækmark in the 1950s featuring an angular oak frame with paper yarn seat and an organic look.
- Dresser: A vintage style dresser in a natural tone fits perfectly in this space, and a similar version to the one seen here is the Muuto low Enfold dresser – a great choice because it has a design that combines classic and modern characteristics. The base and the top part of the furniture are made from solid oak, with soft and warm lines that are traditionally found in Scandinavian design. The choice of this material references the wooden dressers of the 20th century, contrasting wonderfully with the modern painted steel structure. The doors have pretty ridges on the metal, highlighting the industrial and elegant aspect of the dresser.
- Table lamp: Although I couldn’t find the exact design used here, I think the Fritz Hansen Night Owl table lamp found on Finnish Design Shop is a beautiful and very similar style. Designed by Nicholai Wiig Hansen, it gives off a friendly, organic look that diffuses a cozy and warm light perfect for a hygge bedroom.
- Magazine: A great way to add a simple, decorative item is with a beautiful design magazine, and in this bedroom I can spot the Cereal Magazine volume 19 2020 (spring / summer edition) on the dresser.
- Artwork: Another detail in the room is the singular artwork on the wall. This Gold Lines No1 from Desenio contrasts lovely with the wallpaper. The abstract watercolour illustration has shapes in blue and black with two curved lines in gold, against a white background.
- Rug: A cozy rug helps create a hygge atmosphere in this Scandinavian bedroom, and I think a simple white version with tassels like this Rainbow wool carpet from the Danish brand Linie Design found on Nordic Nest is great.
Hope this post can inspire you & stay tuned for more ‘get the look’ posts with other Scandinavian interiors.
