The tell-tale signs of a Scandinavian room: simple color palettes, tons of natural textures, minimalist furniture, and eco-friendly materials. In other words: the good stuff. When you bring it to a kid-friendly space, you're likely to see touches of whimsy, pops of color, and playful accents to boot. Thanks to simple but enchanting details, Scandinavian style makes the perfect backdrop for imaginative play.
1. Feature a woven pendant for natural texture.
2. Include cozy floor seating.
3. Cover an accent wall in wallpaper.
4. Opt for a rattan bed frame.
5. Use leather pulls instead of traditional hardware.
In true Scandi fashion, leather pulls replace shiny hardware for an earthier, more natural vibe. Follow the lead of Avenue Lifestyle with chestnut leather pulls mounted with brass nailheads, and pair with white built-ins. Add a colorful, geometric rug for a dash of playfulness.
6. Hang a whimsical bed canopy.
7. Keep it simple with neutrals.
There's no rule book that says kid spaces have to be overflowing with color to be youthful and charming. This serene kids' bedroom idea by Shauna Dean employs neutrals and patterns to create a minimalist, Scandinavian vibe. Combine buffalo check bedding, black and white wallpaper, and natural wood finishes to achieve the same look.
8. Display wooden toys.
9. Hang minimalist artwork.
Rather than hanging traditional animal-themed prints in fancy frames, choose simple yet playful images to hang with wood and string for a cheerful, minimalist vibe. Take a page out of Nadine's design book with a tiny bookcase to display their favorite tomes and a weather-inspired reading nook, perfect for a rainy day.
