Creating a cozy, warm design is one of my top priorities when I am creating a space. I love a good ambiance. I believe that a lot of that can be achieved though the right lighting, color, and textures. I have been able to transform my entire home into a cozy space by focusing on these three items.
The most important space in your home that needs to be cozy is your bedroom. This is the space that needs to be the most calming and warm, so you have the perfect place to rest and relax. Today, I am going to show you my top tips to create a cozy bedroom like the one I have created.
How To Create a Cozy Bedroom
Add Lighting: Lighting is your best friend when it comes to creating a warm a cozy space. Just a few simple additions will add coziness and warmth to your space.
Use table lamps or wall lights where you can. I used wall lamps like this one from World market to create this warmth.
Use a warm light. Make sure all the lights you use with your lamps are warm. No bright lights welcomed here!
Add a Himalayan Sea Salt lamp. Yes, these are trendy, but I am obsessed with them. They are so warm and beautiful. I love including them in each room to bring calmness and warmth. This is my favorite Himalayan Sea Salt lamp I have found.
Calming Color: Choose a calming color scheme that speaks to you. Everyone has a different color scheme and vibe they connect with so pick what connects with you, and not what is popular on Pinterest. For me, blues and grays create a calming vibe for me, so you will see those colors through out my home, especially my bedroom.
Add Texture: Adding texture is an easy way to create coziness and add dimension to a room. The best way to add texture to your bedroom is by:
Using baskets: If you need storage, add baskets to your room. These immediately bring a sense of warmth because of the honey color, but also adds a pop of texture that differs from your bedding.
Using different pillow fabric: Pillows come in all different shapes and sizes. Adding different types of pillows and fabrics, creates dimension for your bedding. The easiest way to change up the pillows are by adding velvet pillows or pillows with embroidered details. My favorite velvet pillows are from World Market and can be found here.
Using quilts: Use quilts with your duvet or comforter to layer your bed and add a different texture to the bedding in your room. My favorite quilts are from West Elm and can be found here.
