Mixing natural textures can give your bedroom an authentic, warm, welcoming tone. Like so many other styles, it’s one we have the Scandinavians to thank for. It blends the minimalist style they became famous for with a homely feel that touches on the popular Hygge trend. Luckily for you our Samara bedside cabinet is a beautifully simplistic piece that would fit into any Scandi inspired room.
Not plain but simple
Painting a contrasting feature wall is nothing new. But you can take it one step further by adding texture. Tongue and groove slats offer a rustic charm, while deep grey brings it right up to date. Using one darker tone not only anchors and draws attention to the bed, but amplifies the lighter tones and varied materials elsewhere.
Setting the scene
Fall in love with layers. Just remember that less can be more. And don’t be afraid to mix and match materials. Wool, raw bamboo, cork, linen, hessian… there’s a world of textures to explore. Choosing all natural materials and fabrics is the sure-fire way to effortlessly unify an assortment of objects.
Get crafty about hand-made. Celebrate imperfections, like the natural grain of wood or an uneven finish to a glass-blown vase. You don’t have to be a DIY crafter either – visit local fairs or have a look online for inspiring ideas and truly individual pieces.
Seek out stylishly simple details, like curved edges and chunky knits and combine these with painted floorboards and a statement wall, whilst keeping things balanced with interesting natural textures in an airy uncluttered space – and you’ve conquered the contemporary Scandi designer style.
