Create a cosy modern bedroom

This season’s trend is all about blending old with new, textures, tones and shapes to create a whole new look. With these 5 tips and the addition of a few on trend pieces that won’t break the bank, you can create a modern bedroom that will keep you cosy all winter.

Start with a statement floor rug

A floor rug acts as an anchor to the room and can complete your look by visually tying the different pieces together and add warmth underfoot on a chilly morning. A neutral colourway with interesting texture is a great base that will allow you to easily change your look from season to season.

Pile on the layers

Winter is the perfect time to invest in extra layers for your bed and they are key to creating a cosy bedroom look. Start with a mattress topper for extra comfort and support, add an electric blanket and trade your lightweight duvet inner for a warmer option. Wool is a great choice. Nothing says snuggly like a flannelette sheets, lots of cushions and a throw to top off the look.

Add colour and texture

This winter is all about texture and rich colours. Linen blends, faux furs and soft luxurious mink feel fabrics are key for cushions and throws. Mix jewel and earthy tones such as amber and deep blues with warm natural woods to create a cosy look. You could also try furniture in natural stone or beige base colours offset with rich caramels and pesto green accents. For a softer look, go for dusty blush pinks and blues teamed with a linen-rich throw.

Lighting adds ambience

Bedside lamps are multi-purpose - as well as adding interest to your room, they create a soft light that is relaxing and cosy. Choose warm white lightbulbs rather than clinical cool white. Candles also give off a warm light and come in a range of scents that will help you relax and sleep well.

Accessories

Accessories are the finishing touch to bring your look to life. Gold and Bamboo accents are on trend and work as perfectly with jewel tones. Use a tray on your bedside table to keep ornaments, candles and other treasures neat. Pile your bed with cushions and a throw in colours that coordinate with your duvet or bedspread. Framed pictures are perfect to lift plain walls - florals are big right now and tie in well with this winter’s earthy colour palette.
