1. USE RICH, WARM TONES FOR A BEDROOM THAT ENVELOPS

The layers of color, pattern, and texture in this bedroom artfully come together to create a cozy bedroom you simply wouldn’t want to leave. A deep earthy pumpkin tone is the starting point for the scheme. And the wall color certainly sets the mood, offset cleverly with a cooler, natural sage green shade on the woodwork, for balance. 

This tonal pairing is then carried through the rest of the bedroom story. The four-poster has been bespoke painted in a deep terracotta finish. The head and baseboard are upholstered in a striking geometric in pink and tangerine. The bedding, bench, and artwork pick up on the sage green story. And the curtains enveloping the bed cleverly pull all the tones together with their jolly stripe design.

It’s easy to get lost in sleep in our warm yet lightweight natural cotton comforters. The natural fibers offer a breathable option to keep you cool in the summer and toasty in the winter. Plus, just like your favorite pair of jeans, our cotton bedding gets softer after each wash! Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen and King sizes.

2. UP THE COZY FACTOR WITH WALLPAPER

A wallpaper makeover could be just what your cozy bedroom needs for a simple yet striking transformation and there are numerous different styles when it comes to choosing a look you’ll love. 

This season’s decorating is inspired by the global traveler’s expeditions, with a rich palette of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and ochre adding warmth and depth to interiors. The earthy ochre of the linen headboard and the pinch of ginger in the cushions, against a tropical pictorial wallpaper, evoke the memory of faraway shores.

IMPORTANT: make sure to order enough panels to cover your wall or surface (size options below). Our peel and stick Wallpaper is easy to apply and take off, leaving no adhesive residue. Featuring sharp, vibrant images, Wallpaper patterns are ideal for accent walls, flat surfaces, and temporary installations (like parties!). Available in three floor-to-ceiling sizes.

3. BRING NATURE INTO YOUR COZY BEDROOM FOR A RESTFUL FEEL

Instantly feel at ease with a cozy bedroom scheme that will transport you to nature. 

Create a feature wall behind the bed using paint, wallpaper, or wood panelling. If going for a patterned wallpaper, keep the bed simple to avoid clashes. According to color psychology, green shades are refreshing for the mind and body – namely because they’re drawn directly from nature.

Using a botanical pattern on your bedroom walls is a simple way to capture the feeling of calm you experience when walking through the woods – this one is Beech in Document Green, by Lewis & Wood

It was inspired by saplings in spring – that wonderful time when the leaves start opening and everything feels open and peaceful,’ says Magdalen Jebb, the brand’s creative director. ‘We created the design to bring that mood indoors.’

From sideshow to show-stopper, our side tables will be a stunning modern accent to your space. Selecting from our wide array of artist’s designs printed with a satin finish on birch wood, you’ll take any room from zero to a hundred. Available in a square or round table top, and black or gold leg colors.

4. ADD WARMTH AND TEXTURE WITH TIMBER

The right colors, textures, and planning are key to a blissfully peaceful and cozy bedroom. Borrowing nature’s palette is a sure way to create a soothing feel. 

This space makes use of multiple textures – the unfinished wooden boards on the walls, the patchwork throw, the tiled floor – to give the impression of almost being outdoors, but the subtle pairing of green and neutrals maintains a relaxed mood. In particular, the wood cladding works to add warmth. ‘Using real wood in this way feels comforting,’ says Robert Walsh, founder of Ted Todd Fine Wood Floors.

Our natural fiber cotton duvet covers feature your favorite artist’s design on the front. The lightweight cotton offers a more breathable option to keep you cool in the summer and toasty in the winter. Plus, just like your favorite pair of jeans, our cotton bedding gets softer after each wash! Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, and King sizes. Duvet inserts not included.

5. DRESS THE BED (SO IT’S FIT FOR A KING – OR QUEEN)

Make your bed look as well-dressed as those done by professionals. Focus on layers of textiles (duvet, pillows, cushions, throw) to add a sense of comfort, and reveal a generous amount of each later to stop it from looking too busy. Go for clean lines for a stylish look. Line pillows and cushions up at different heights to create smart visual interest without the effect being overly fussy.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux-down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

6. MAKE YOUR BED THE FOCAL POINT

Turn this key item of furniture into your cozy bedroom’s focal point. Balance is an important design principle that creates a sense of structure and calmness. Use the bed as the central axis as its design is naturally symmetrical. 

It is also usually the largest piece of furniture, so is ideal to take center-stage in the room’s layout. Throw in asymmetrical elements. The overriding look should be balanced, but one or two extra items will stop the room from feeling too formal or traditional.

Invite the sun inside on your terms. Our blackout window curtains are a denser alternative to your standard window curtain, blocking out most light and proudly featuring your favorite designs. Whether you live in a busy apartment or a peaceful neighborhood, it’s always nice to have the option to shut out the sun and relax inside by candlelight. Available in either single or double panel options.

7. FOCUS ON THE HEADBOARD

The headboard you choose will set the tone of your bedroom and opting for an oversized statement style can help anchor the space – creating a cozy bedroom you will never want to leave. 

In this Terrace Suite at Kit Kemp’s The Soho Hotel, the master bedroom features a hand-embroidered applique headboard created in collaboration with fashion designer Clio Peppiatt and inspired by the local Soho music scene. 

For your own scheme, consider creating a headboard with your favorite fabric for a finish that feels personal. For this, a stockist to know is Ensemblier London. Go for a wall-mounted design that also sits on the floor for support and finish with stud work or contrasting pipework for a luxurious hotel-style look.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux-down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

8. CREATE A FEELING OF CALM WITH A SINGLE COLOR SCHEME

Monochromatic color schemes are perfect for bedrooms because they promote a feeling of calm, making your space a haven away from the rest of your day. And, of course, the perfect color to choose for a calm bedroom is green: it’s restful and stress-relieving and its deeper tones can feel cozy and enveloping, perfect for a bedroom.

9. GO BOLD WITH FLORAL PRINTS ON A STATEMENT BED

A statement headboard is a fabulous way to display a bold oversize floral such as this. In fact here, the entire bed has been upholstered in a vibrant pattern, making the bed a real showstopper. The tall gentle curve of the headboard softens the lines of the bed, making it feel truly inviting. 

The large-scale floral print is complemented with a friendly small-scale print wallpaper. This geometric feel is continued on the bed with the cushion and bedcover designs. Nothing feels too matchy-matchy, which adds to the charm and helps the room to feel more personal and informal. 

Find somewhere soft to land. Our floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for the boho side of us all. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water-resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.

10. CREATE A COZY BEDROOM WITH THE RIGHT FLOORING

It’s the first thing you step onto in the morning, so picking the perfect flooring is vital. Lush carpet underfoot gives a luxurious feel that’s perfect for a bedroom sanctuary. Layer textures – deep-pile carpet, rustic board-effect wallpaper or cladding, and chunky knits – for a look that’s full of comfort, but keep it smart with contemporary furniture, lighting, and sparkling fresh white bed linen.

HOW CAN I MAKE MY BEDROOM FEEL COZY?

There are a number of ways you can make your bedroom feel cozy. Firstly, think about your color palette. Neutral colors tend to be calming, easy, and super stylish to decorate with, so are the perfect option for a cosseting and cozy bedroom scheme. One important aspect to consider, when decorating with neutrals is to bring in as much texture as possible as it creates interest and layers – important factors when strong colors are out of the picture. Consider warm metallics such as brass and bronze or natural wood elements alongside linens, velvets, sheepskins, and chunky knits.
