Choose simple yet striking artwork. Black frames will provide the perfect contrast and provide a link with the curtain rods, tying the bedroom together.

Furniture

Nordic and Scandinavian furniture encompasses modern mid-century pieces which are often in blonde timbers. Replica pieces are a great way to create the look without costing a fortune.
