We noted several inspirational ideas in this Scandinavian bedroom featured on Hus & Hem: the industrial pendant lamp suspended from a nautical hook, the clip-on reading lamp, and (best of all) the use of vintage doors as a headboard—an easy DIY project requiring a trip to an architectural salvage yard or flea market.

Above: Olde Good Things in New York has a vast selection of reclaimed doors; on the West Coast, Big Daddy's Antiques, with locations in both San Francisco and Los Angeles, is a good source for salvaged doors. In the UK, Authentic Reclamation is worth investigating, as well as Retrouvius in London.
