Have you ever been thinking of why those Scandinavian baby rooms look so well designed and peaceful? It’s so good for your eyes to watch them and you feel like you are in perfect harmony.

The answer is so simple: BALANCE.

One of the most important design tips and tricks for creating a Scandi style nursery room is about creating balance between the floor and the ceiling. Your eyes will translate the result as perfect harmony.

So there is only one thing to do now and that’s using the walls, I mean the full height of the room. We give you a list of options for great Scandinavian inspired decors and furniture and it’s your turn to adopt them for your Scandi style baby room. You shouldn’t choose only one from the list below but trying to make a mix of them in the room.

1) Wall art

Such an easy addition to your Scandi style nursery room! As the focal point of the room is the baby crib, you should hang some posters above it. Stay minimalist when choosing the right graphics but adding some personality { like your little One’s name } to the design is a good idea. Place a bigger one into the center or two or three smaller ones above the baby bed.

2) Wall decal

From the smallest patterns to the biggest ones – you’ll soon find yourself hesitating between wonderful wall decals. In order to stay minimalist the colours should be monochromatic like grey – black – white and as for the patterns you might looking for some geometric or woodland style. Whether you choose tall patterns like pine or small geometric shapes, keep in mind that less is more here.

3) Wall storage

The real Scandi style furniture is functional and looks so great while keeps the room neat. Wall mounted storage units can double as decor – for example pure canvas baskets in earth tones are a great addition to the neutral look and can double as toy storage.

8) Stuffed animal head

Bringing nature inside a bit is essential part of Scandinavian interior design. Beside plants there are those wonderful animals children will love so much. Your kids can get to know forest animals at an early age and they can learn how to love them and think of them as friends.

9) Plants on the wall

In Scandinavian interior design bringing nature and plants into the room is essential. We love the idea of saving up some space on the floor but adding a unique look to the nursery room at once. Not mentioning the importance of security – your crawling baby or a curious toddler cannot reach the plant to eat potting soil.

Placing a decor item on the floor and leaning it against the wall is such a big trick. A 5ft ladder made of natural wood painted half white for instance gives a real nordic look and feeling to the room. Remember, it’s not only a decor element, but serves as a stylish blanket holder.
