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.
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.
Before you start converting anything, you will want to decide what purpose or function the outdoor portion of your bedroom will play? Do you want it as a sitting area that is an addition to your actual sleeping area? Do you want it to be able to be an option for sleeping as well, for instance, consist of a bed or other type of sleeping quarters? Maybe you want the outdoor portion of the bedroom to a place where you can sit and watch a little TV, play games, visit with your spouse or gaze at the stars. Knowing what purpose the area will serve will help you determine what type of furniture you will need, how big of a space you will need off of the main bedroom, and what type of coverage or other enclosure you may want to include.
When crafting a space that both men and women feel at home in, neutrals and woods are your best friends. A headboard that emphasizes shape rather than color is a great way to avoid a look that feels too basic, and a classic rug, such as an Oushak, is something everyone can agree on. Bedside tables, a bench, or chairs in streamlined wood add a tactile quality to the scheme. Color, of course, is by no means off-limits—just choose those pops wisely.
