my scandinavian home: My home - bedroom tour

My home - bedroom tour

Thursday, 15 September 2016

I've been meaning to finish my bedroom for ages.  I finally found the opportunity on a recent collaboration with the fab family run Danish homeware shop Nordal - who made it possible to add the final touches for Autumn - including a much needed rug, as well as a cosy quilt and beautiful bench. Our bedroom takes up the top floor of our house (some feel a big room is un-cosy, do you?) it's a very personal thing but I love to have lots of space around me, and even open the balcony door while I'm sleeping for extra measure! Having said that, I feel a bedroom should be calm. Somewhere you can relax and switch off from the stresses and strains of daily life. And as the cold weather starts to set in here in Sweden - cosy too! That's why I've stuck to neutral shades and layers of soft textiles in natural materials such as cotton, rattan, sheepskin and linen! Here's the reveal, I hope you like it!

What do you think?

I have to say, it really has become my little oasis. Looking at this now, I might just head back to bedfor the day.....Zzzzzzz!

Here's a guide to where I found some of the items:



1. RAW bench (I'd recommend the larger one if you have a double bed) 2. Quilt - black and cream stripes  3. Sheepkin throw 4. DOME lamp 5. sheepskin cushion 6. Round glass bottle 7. ESSENCE carpet (rug).

If you're wondering about anything else in my bedroom ask away in the comment section below and I'll be happy to point you in the right direction!

Have a lovely day!

This post was brought to you in collaboration with Nordal. I only ever work with brands I love and think you will to. Thank you for supporting the businesses which make My Scandinavian Home possible.

  4. What type of bed itself do you have? Is it mattress inside the frame, or box mattress? Maybe Cintinental bed? Just interesting to know. Of cause if you see it too personal, just not answer to the question:)
