Today, I’ll show you a few photos of my romantic bohemian style bedroom in Denmark, which is “soverværelse” on the floorplan. I’ve always wanted a home with a laid back bohemian vibe and I got it in this crooked old apartment with its shabby edges and the secondhand treasures I’ve used to furnish it. It really has been my dream home!
Pretty much everything in my bohemian style bedroom is secondhand… the dresser and night table are a part of a vintage Bali-Hai bedroom set that I bought at an auction in the States for $70 in 1999. The set also includes a vanity chair, which you can see in the bathroom and a second night table, which is to the right of the dresser and not visible in the photos. The buddha statue on my dresser was my grandfather’s, it’s a vintage piece from the 1950s and I’ve had it forever! The chair, lamp, and throw pillow are all Danish thrift store finds, which gave me exactly the romantic bohemian style bedroom that I wanted… and it all cost next to nothing :)
I would’ve loved to use a tapestry on the bed, but Scandinavian winters are frigid and they use duvets instead of top sheets, so I opted for a vintage floral print duvet from IKEA. I’m not a huge fan of IKEA, but when in Rome ; -)
I’m going to miss my fringey vintage lamp, the lace curtains, and having a chandelier and a velvet chair in the bedroom. Luckily, the vintage Bali-Hai furniture has been approved to come with me to Robert’s non-vintage, non-romantic apartment and if I close my eyes, Nag Champa incense can make any bedroom feel like a romantic bohemian style bedroom :)
I’ll also miss lying in bed and looking at the stars, which are especially lovely in the clear, cold, winter sky.
