Looking for some cozy bedroom inspiration? Welcome to today’s post!
The days are getting shorter, the weather cooler and the leaves are already changing colour. And it’s been harder to get out of bed in the mornings. Not because I’ve been feeling down or depressed, but because my bed feels too darn cozy to get out of!
One of my favourite parts about the colder seasons is that they bring with them a feeling of coziness. Who doesn’t love feeling cozy? It’s like a warm, comforting hug that never ends. It makes you feel safe, calm and at peace.
And I sure do love me a cozy bedroom!
So, what do I think makes a bedroom cozy?
# 1 – Comfy bedding
An obvious factor! Cozy = comfort. Soft bedding and cozy soft comforters are the most important factor in creating a cozy bedroom. I know I can never feel cozy if I’m freezing, and I’m ALWAYS freezing. So, choosing bedding that is soft, comfortable, and WARM is my number one when it comes to the c-o-z-y!
# 2 – Extra blankets/throws
For me, you can never have enough blankets in a cozy bedroom. As someone who’s body temperature always equals that of ice, having extra blankets and throws makes for an ultra warm and relaxing experience. Adding layers of fabric is a simple way of instantly cozy-fying your bedroom.
# 3 – Pillows galore
All pillows are welcome in a cozy bedroom! And you can never have too many!
# 4 – Rugs
Who wants to place their feet on a cold floor after they’ve just been warm and toasty under the covers?? No one! Having a soft rug to place your toes on after sliding out of bed helps keep you warm, comfy, and, you guessed it!, oh-so-cozy!
# 5 – Soft lighting
Nothing says calm quite like soft lighting. This type of lighting is soft on the eyes and instantly creates a relaxing environment, which is all perfect for helping you to get a good night’s sleep. As someone who often struggles with an anxious mind, creating this calm and peaceful atmosphere is something I always try to incorporate in my nighttime routine.
# 6 – Candles
There is something about a candle that brings me peace. I’m not sure what it is. Could it be the way the flame instantly brings me to the present moment each time I notice it? Could it be the way it fills my room with my favourite scent? Could it be the warm lighting it produces? I think it’s all of the above. Candles are special to me, which makes them must-have additions to my cozy bedroom.
# 7 – A touch of nature
Nature never fails to calm me down. Adding a touch of it, in the form of a plant, or vase of flowers, around your room can really add to the serene and relaxing feeling you’re after in a cozy bedroom. And some plants can actually help you in the sleep department! Check out these 20 Best Bedroom Plants to Help You Get a Better Sleep.
# 8 – Calming colours
We know colours can affect our mood. Adding soft, calming colours that you love, and are easy on the eyes, to your bedroom can create the peaceful haven of your dreams.
