Lighting plays a big role in any room. The use of natural light can instantly make a room feel bigger and airier. If your room doesn’t have much natural light, try using lighting on different levels, from a small hanging chandelier over the bed, wall sconces, floor lamp and table lamps, to increase the look and feel of the room.
To add an open, airy look and feel to the room, use all the natural light you have in the room. Many Scandinavian rooms don’t even incorporate any window treatments at all, but leave the windows open and curtain and shade-free. If you choose to hang window treatments, keep in the same frame of mind as the rest of the room and keep it simplistic, clean and neat. Light weight, sheer white drapes made of light fabrics, such as cotton or linen, are popular.
Your color palette should be of a lower tone with relaxing and muted tones to create a sense of comfort and serene atmosphere. For a few ideas, you may want to paint all four walls the same color, or if there is an added wall or area that is set apart from the main room, use a darker shade of the main wall color, for added dramatic effect. Another way to add dramatic effect is to paint three walls one muted tone color and add a damask-patterned or high-quality foiled wall paper to accent the one wall and create a focal point.
Choosing the right fabric is important as it dictates how the curtains will hang and fold. The best fabrics for a window are velvet, faux silk, and linen. They’re the most durable and they hang the best in a window. Faux silk holds up the best in a really sunny room and is the most durable of all the materials. If you choose too heavy of a material, it can hang awkwardly and will not fold right when they’re drawn. Bright colors fade faster in particularly sunny rooms, so staying away from bright reds and other similar colors, will help retain the look of your room with the curtains.
