There are few places in this world that offer us more comfort than our bedrooms. With winter looming right around the corner, our bedrooms need to be cozier and more inviting than ever.
Therefore tweaking a few things in our bedrooms is a good (and easy) idea to prepare ourselves for the ‘hibernation’ period and have our bedrooms become the welcoming hygge space to enjoy during the cooler months.
Creating Mood Lighting
One of the easiest ways we can change and experiment with the mood and feel of any room is through lighting. If you want your bedroom to look cosy, warm and welcoming then your lighting is one of the first things that you are going to need to look at.
Ignore those overhead lights, as they are a huge killer in the hygge department, and focus on the lamps in this room.
Play with tabletop and floor standing lamps of different heights and look into different strength and colored bulbs until you have created the ideal lighting in your bedroom that looks calm, soothing and completely inviting.
Adding Wood for Warmth
When we saying ‘add wood for warmth’ I don’t mean like firewood. No, I mean adding wooden items into your bedroom to add accents of warmth to the mood and feel of the room.
Regardless its size, adding wood to your room will add a sense of warmth and comfort. Whether you are looking to create an entire brown wood and stone bed suite or whether you want to inject small, subtle wood objects around the room, you may be surprised at how inviting wood is as a bedroom material. Opting for wood furniture and decorations will really ramp up the coziness in your room and will transform your bedroom into the ideal winter hibernation space.

Textiles and Textures
As your bed is the main focal point of the bedroom, you are going to need to make sure that it looks soft and like a beautiful, ideal haven for you to rest your weary head at the end of the day.
Indulging in good quality bed sheets and pillows, to make sure that your bed is soft and soothing is one of the best things that you can do for a great night’s sleep.
In addition, why not make your bed look like it’s come straight from luxury hotel brochure by layering with luxe cushions and indulgent throws. Mix and match different colors, textures, and textiles to get a designer curated feel.
The textiles and textures underfoot are also just as important as you want your bedroom to feel soft and warm under bare feet. Look into the rugs and carpets that you have in your room to make sure that your bedroom is keeping you happy from your head to your toes.
Adding warmth to your bedroom is all in the detail. Creating a welcoming ambiance and a beautiful sleeping and relaxing environment is something that can be done with just a few very simple yet effective steps.
