An array of neutral color and prints, varying textures, billowing fabrics and layers of worldly decor. If you’re looking into adding some Ethnic - Scandinavian influence throughout your home, we’ve definitely compiled a beautiful assembly of inspiration for you.
Contrary to general belief that ethnic designs are tribal, the concept of the style can often be associated with the exotic. The bedroom is one of the interior spaces that can translate the style in a striking manner.
From subtle earth tones and rough textures to vivacious colors and elaborate patterns, fashioning your bedroom in an ethnic style means that it is infused with both traditional and art-inspired features and elements typical of the style’s theme.
Creating a bedroom design that depicts an ethnic theme is easy to achieve and fun to put together, and in a contemporary bedroom set-up, the trick is to ensure you complement your modern furniture with different local art, furnishings, and finishes.
With Scandinavian interior, the emphasis is on magnifying natural light to combat the long, dark winters, so a repetitive color palette of whites, beige, cool blues and soft grey is a good choice to use throughout your bedroom. If you’re looking for bedroom paint ideas; darker, earthy shades of charcoal, brown, navy and black can be used sparingly as accents colours for furniture and accessories, providing light and shade and creating visual interest. Remember, a huge emphasis is placed on white bedroom ideas and colour schemes, so it may be best to start with white or off-white walls as the base.
Scandinavians have a real appreciation of natural, raw materials, from ceramic, clay, wood and stone to tactile linen, wool, felt and fur. Floors and walls are neutral in colour, whether it’s a dark ceramic floor to contrast against pale walls, or wooden floorboards that have been whitewashed or polished to bounce light around a room. Window treatments are simple and pared back to let in as much light as possible.
