Dominant color contrast

Repetitive pattern

Choose one or more repetitive patterns but don’t make them look too obvious. The colors of the chairs give the room a playful air and the pattern on the walls makes a great combination with the pattern on the floor, lamp and the back of every chair.

Highlights of light

Fix some lamps onto your bookshelves and redirect the light on certain points in the house – paintings, bookshelves or wall patterns. Have a thin, large, light-colored, rectangular carpet in the center of the room and build a nice contrast line on it with the sofa, the tables in the room, the chairs and so on.

Round Corner Fireplace

Many Scandinavian interior decorating ideas have in common the round corner fireplace. Give it enough space around it and link its style to other objects in the room – by color, design or shape.

Balance and mirroring effect

Find a central piece that will draw anybody’s attention and mirror it in another plan of the room. If you have a big painting on a wall for example you can mirror its size with the size of the carpet.

Simple yet impacting decorations

Choose some simple yet impacting decorations to fill the room – if you have a small room to decorate you can style it by placing a really big painting with large patterns and light dominant colors.

You can actually integrate a real sauna in your bathroom. On you can find a lot of pre-made home saunas. They come in different sizes, so you shouldn’t have problems finding one suitable for the size of your bathroom.
