We show you how to make the bedroom your cosy retreat.
With temperatures dropping, we’re spending more time inside, and it’s the perfect time to make your home more cosy – the bedroom is an easy space to switch up your style for winter. Aside from sleep, your bedroom is the place to wind down. “Think of the space as your sanctuary and decorate it with the style that suits you best,” says Jade Turner, lead designer at The Warehouse.
For winter, whether you opt for a botanical, glamorous or boho look, it’s particularly important to have a textured rug to ground the furniture and make the room feel cosy. Bedrooms also need “comfy cushions, curtains with plenty of fullness – thermal-backed ones for warmth in winter – and bedside lamps help to make a bedroom a cosy space”.
Starting point for styling your bedroom
Jade’s plan of attack for styling a bedroom is to begin with a beautiful duvet cover, then add cushions, mixing and matching colours and patterns. Finish with a tactile throw or a comforter in a different pattern, folded at the end of the bed.
Adding the finishing touches
Next, it’s on to a bedside lamp to provide soft mood lighting. Finish with fresh flowers, a scented candle and a curved mirror to bring in extra light.
For a calming boho look, a linen duvet in a natural colour is a great choice. Add pillows, textured cushions and a throw. Coordinate with wood-look furniture and rattan accessories, and finish the room with a print that reflects nature, or has natural elements.
Create a glam bedroom space by incorporating three things: neutrals, metallics and jewel tones – think velvets, and a pop of art and a beautiful mirror that brings the room together
A botanical styled bedroom is easily achieved by opting for a duvet cover in a leafy or pretty floral print. Complete the look with a rug and hang some wall art to tie the look together. Don’t hold back on plants, this really brings the room together for a tropical, botanical look!
