my scandinavian home: Duvet day, the perfect bedroom

Duvet day, the perfect bedroom

Wednesday, 2 July 2014

When I lived in London the agency I worked for allowed us five duvet days a year. This meant we could just be 'off' without any real reason other than that we wanted to crawl back under our duvet for the day and stay there. Years later I still think about that duvet day and the beauty behind the idea. And if I were to take one, it would be here, in this beautiful bedroom. Oh the power of pictures against an all white backdrop. Could you spend a 'duvet day' here?!

For more wonderful 'duvet day' inspiration, you might want to check out the bedrooms here, here and here! Oh and here's my bedroom back at home (captured by my great friend Karin who has just had a little baby boy...congratulations! :)

My two favourite beddings: The Fold jersey sheets, duvet covers and pillows from The Beach House Company (trust me, it's like sleeping in your favourite t-shirt) and this linen bedding.

For the cutest children's bedrooms inspiration how about this Finnish bedroom, a girls room in earthy greens and dusty pinks and one of my all time favourites: a vintage inspired little girls bedroom.

Lie-in, relax and have a lovely (duvet?) day!

PS did you know that in Scandinavia it's customary to have two single duvets on a double bed?! 


  1. it is a very "cold" minimalism... too cold for me, mainly for a bedroom..

  2. It's the home of Emma Persson Lagerberg. I suspect the photography is Petra Bindel.

    We have duvet days here is Australia as well, but we call them "sickies." ;-)

    1. Thank you so much for the credits, I'll update the post accordingly. :)

  3. Regarding this:
    "PS did you know that in Scandinavia it's customary to have two single duvets on a double bed?! "

    As a fellow Scandinavian, I find this perfectly normal. :D
    What would you have in the UK, for example? Only a single large one?

    1. In the UK you would have a double duvet (i.e. share the same duvet)! :)

  4. This is a gorgeous bedroom and duvet days are the best idea anyone could possibly have come up with!

    My husband and I discovered the the single duvet thing when we traveled round Sweden for our honeymoon - wasn't quite what we had in mind! We still had a great time, though, and hope to return very soon with our daughter who came along not that long afterwards ;)!

  5. Duvet days. What a brilliant concept! I need some of those in my life... :)

  6. I'm from Belgium and I could never imagine myself not sleeping under a single duvet. A double duvet just sounds like the most impractical thing in the world :)

  7. This is a truly gorgeous bedroom!
    And I'm so used to sleep under a double duvet! :)

  8. I like the idea of two duvets (doona in Australia), I think you would stay warmer but wondering how you dress the bed?

  9. so much good information on here, : D.

  10. Well, it's normal for me to have two single duvets on a double bed. I hate it when someone grabs my cover and I'm getting nothing :)
