You can find how to create it right here. The light fixtures use here can be found at almost any hardware store, just to match a brass coloured sink, you can easily spray paint it to match the colours.

You can find an economical choice of these in any Ikea store or just try to craft and make it yourself, like showed in these crafty post here and here. Also, to stay close to Scandinavian/Nordic style look, you shouldn’t clutter your space with too much objects and details and a colourful palette. The main idea is to style and decorate in a balanced monochromatic palette and to reduce the decor to a few essential details.
What makes this space feel clean, airy, light and still welcoming – a dedication to stay in a light palette, not over-cluttering it and adding a few of your personal touches, like for example a videotape collection laid out by colour and a matching colourful graphic bedding.
