A new way to sleep
Our latest blog installment for all things sleep-related, tips and tricks, and product news
When we spend a third of our life sleeping (yes, a third!), we should be thinking about how we can maximise our comfort and overall cosiness of our bedrooms. Make your room cosy in Winter and love the view from your pillow every day and every night with these 10 design tricks!
Don’t be afraid of white on white
Surprisingly, white on white can be a great foundation for you to create a cosy-overload bedroom. With white walls and white linen, the ‘cosy’ elements come from adding accessories such as a chunky knit throw, thick curtains, or warm pillows.
Add in warm, natural textures and materials
Wood, linen, rattan, wicker, stone, wool: these are all materials that exude warmth so dot them around your room to make your bedroom feel cosy. How do suede lampshades, wool pillows and soft brown wicker furniture sound?
Always opt for warm lamps
A great design tip to make your bedroom feel cosy is to add in elements of soft lighting like lamps. Choose soft or deep, dark colours for your light shades but make sure that the actual bulb itself isn’t harsh. Soft, warm lighting equals cosy vibes.
Paint a feature wall
If white isn’t for you, why not pick the wall at the head of your bed and paint that a solid colour? Warm colours include reds, browns, and earthy greens.
Aim for cottage vibes
When you think of ‘cosy’ does an image of a warm winter cottage come to mind? If so, think about how you can create this scene in your bedroom. Soft white or cream walls with a checkered throw and soft pastel-coloured accessories. Maybe even a wrought-iron bed?
The thicker the curtains the better
Thick, textured curtains scream cosy but you can also layer them too. Consider having netted curtains underneath with thicker, darker curtains on top and this layered look will add to the warmth of the room.
Get creative with candles
Make your bedroom feel cosy with the addition of candles but be creative with them. Normal candles can make a room smell nice, but artificial candles give off a warm glow (extra cosy!) and candles inside glass lanterns look pretty! – Dont leave your normal candles unattended.
Splurge on great linens
Although the look is important when you want to make your room feel cosy, actually being cosy is more important! Splurge on great linens for your bed and you can slip in between your amazingly soft set of sheets after a long hard day and never want to leave.
Combine this with multiple plump pillows
So, you have good sheets with a high thread count, just wait until you pair this with plump pillows, and a medium-weight duvet. You’ll be so cosy that you may just sleep for two thirds of your life instead!
Make your bedroom extra cosy with a big soft mattress (topper)
If you know that your mattress/mattress topper is heavenly, every time you look at your bedroom, you will feel warm and cosy. Invest in a good mattress and topper combination, replace it every 5-10 years and you’ll never have a bad nights sleep again!
