Far from stark and uninspiring, stripped back wooden floors and plain white walls are the epitome of classic Scandinavian interior design. A personal favourite of mine, there is nothing more relaxing than natural light, contrasting textures and a hint of colour popping through in features such as the statement mint wood burner found in this Scandinavian haven. Simple changes make this interior’s style easy to achieve – think fur throws thrown over white bedding, painted floors with warmth added through sheepskin rugs, a series of monochrome finishes including framed typography prints and industrial elements such as this oversized light juxtaposed with untouched wood finishes found throughout.

Pink and green are the perfect duo in this little girl’s bedroom. Floral fabrics and jeweled accents add an innocent and youthful feel, while still emitting a mature and grown-up style. The miniature chair and ottoman provide a cozy spot to curl up with a good book before bedtime. To inspire organization, HGTV fan ssd used white wicker containers to hold toys and accessories.

Anna Potter’s bedroom is everything that I look for in a place to sleep. Warm, calm, welcoming and homely. The dark grey walls and bed linen have a sense of calm, like a gentle hug, welcoming you to bed. The oversized vintage map above adds a sense of drama and no need for a headboard. The room is filled with history, a hand-me-down chest of draws, holiday souvenirs, and the owners own artwork on the walls. A vintage, comfortable and stylish space. I could sleep there quite happily. Image credit
We often think only big, bold colours can make an impact, but when done right, pretty pastels can have the same effect. The muted wallpaper, palest of pink pillowcases and fresh flowers combined with ornate furniture and tactile textures makes for a beautiful bedroom scheme.
