Design In A Box: Minimalist Scandinavian Bedroom


We're wrapping up the Design In A Box series with a Minimalist Scandinavian bedroom design today! This is the fifth post in this mini series, which has been so fun to put together! I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I have. 

So what's taking the place of this series on Fridays? Gift guides! With Thanksgiving coming up next week to officially usher in the holiday season (although retailers would have you believe that the holidays actually started at the beginning of October!), I'll be releasing a gift guide each week with a different theme in mind starting. To kick things off, on Black Friday, I'll be highlighting some small businesses in anticipation of Small Business Saturday. I can't wait!

If you're new to Design In A Box, be sure to catch up on the other posts in the series!

Maybe my inspiration came from the cool winter weather setting in, but this week I found myself wanting to design a simple and cozy bedroom, and no style conveys that look better than Scandinavian! The muted colors and mix of textures just feel like a big bear hug, don't you think? The style is truly the embodiment of "hygge" - the oh-so-popular Danish concept that is perfect for the winter when all folks want to do is go into hibernation mode. 

It can be hard to see all of the textures in a conceptual design board, but they're definitely in there! I incorporated linen, velvet, faux fur, cotton, natural wood, and different metal finishes that come together beautifully to create a relaxed, yet visually interesting vibe. 

I brought in a few pops of color with blush and powder blue, which have a calming, rather than energizing effect. On a side note, I find it pretty amazing how you can use color in different ways to evoke different emotions. Don't you just want to hop right in and take a long afternoon nap in that bed?

Finally, I wanted to point out the galloping horses art print above the bed. The colors and tone in the print coordinate well with the natural wood pieces and bed linens to pull the look together. I love that it looks like the horses are frozen in time, and yet you can almost feel the vibration of their thundering hooves hitting that snowy ground just after the photographer's shutter clicked. I have a special place in my heart for those big, elegant animals. I grew up riding and competing until I went to college, and I miss being around them!

If anyone recreates this bedroom in their own home, I would SO love to see it! Send me a photo or tag me on Instagram!
