With shorter days and colder weather comes the desire to snuggle up as we ride out the rest of the year. Make your time indoors more enjoyable by hunkering down in comfort and style with these tips to give your bedroom all the cozy feels.
1. Add a fluffy rug to soften your floor
Nothing says comfy, cozy like a soft, fluffy rug that feels so good underfoot. Placing a large plush area rug by your bed will make it easier to get up in the mornings. Or try a small, soft accent rug at the foot of a chair to create the perfect place to lounge.
2. Layer textures with pillows and throws
Make your space more comfortable while adding visual interest with the addition of throw pillows and blankets of various materials, like woven knit and faux fur. With these additions, you’ll never want to leave bed.
3. Consider a darker hue for your walls
A rich, dark shade on your wall can make the space feel more warm, intimate, and enveloping. But keep it from feeling dreary by sticking to one accent wall and balance out the dark shade with lighter colors in the rest of the room.
4. Switch to heavier drapes
Keep the cold from creeping in with luxurious, heavy drapes. When they’re closed, they’ll help the room stay warmer, and when they’re open, they’ll nicely frame your windows and prevent them from feeling too stark.
5. Create warmth with warm-colored accents
Rich, warm colors, like light brown, golden yellow, soft orange, and muted red, will make the bedroom feel more cozy and welcoming no matter how icy and cold it is outside. These colors can also give you an added mood boost, something we are often all in need of during the winter months.
6. Incorporate natural elements
Add accents inspired by nature, like macrame wall hangings, wood paneling, woven accessories, and lots of greenery, to create a cozy and calming environment.
7. Get a dramatic bed frame
Nothing screams “stay in bed” more than a four-poster frame. The way it emphasizes the bed and makes it the main focal point of the room adds to the coziness of the space.
