Add a little Nordic flavor to your child's room, and make it unique. Here are a couple tips to pull it off:
1. Buy A Day Bed- The Swedish Kitchen Sofa is an example of practical Swedish design that originates from the 1700's. Houses were small, so the furniture also had to be mult-functional. These sofas could be used during the day and then pulled out at night to be used as a bed. Sofas were painted white or different colors. Not all Swedish Kitchen sofas / köksoffas were used as sofas, some were strictly used as beds. Borrow this classic look, and opt for a day bed, instead of a regular bed.
2. Frame Folk Art Prints- Go for framed embroidery, or vintage tourist prints to hang on the wall. Loose Petals on etsy sells art poster prints that combine lots of color with a vintage flare. For a boys room, consider a gallery wall of printed maps, such as the ones sold through O Maps. Vintage Masters also sells a variety of vintage travel prints that are enticing.
3. Include Antiques- Go for something really unique to showcase on a dresser, wall or on the floor. I once saw an antique rocking cradle used as a storage box for a bunch of vintage dolls. Go for an old school desk, which could also function as an area to draw or practice their writing skills. Create a series of frames which a pairs of antique children's shoes are framed. Create an open shelving wall where vintage children's books can be displayed.
4. Paint A Chest In The Classic Rosemailing Technique- Search through google to determine which look you are most attracted to. There are a handful of books on Amazon which also teach this classic Swedish painting. Pinterest also has a ton of pictures of this style.
5. Consider Storage Furniture- Consider installing floor to ceiling bookshelves with doors that that can house their endless toys, clothing and knick knacks. Here you can see Christina Aguileras shoe closet that extends from the floor to the ceiling, making the best use of the wall space. Painting the shelves and the walls all one color will allow the bookshelves to appear built in. A nice light blue would be very Swedish. Place their bed right in front of the shelves as if it was a wall. Build gigantic closet doors from plywood to conceal their toys and clutter.
6. Don't Get To Serious- Children's rooms are a time to break out of your gray obsession and go for color. Hang unique toys from the ceiling and make it an area that will get their imagination going.
