HomestylingScandinavian Bedroom, Gothenburg
What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Scandinavian ComfortsContemporary Scandinavian homes may typically be all about pale colors and clean lines, but quite often they’re also big on the snuggly factor. This inviting Swedish bedroom shows how to do it by mixing bare brick, wood, and bed linens and soft throws in muted hues.
Embrace homeyness. Contemporary Scandinavian homes may be minimal and all about pale colors and clean lines, but look more closely and you might see they’re also hemtrevliga (homey) and ombonade (snuggly). These two Swedish words sum up the enviable lived-in-ness of some Scandinavian interiors. The trick is to create warmth with texture and materials rather than with colorfully competing features or strong patterns. This inviting Swedish bedroom — mixing bare brick, wood, voile, crisp bed linens and soft throws, all in muted hues — shows how it’s done.
