There’s nothing better than getting away from everything and retreating into a cosy bedroom for hibernation. While he is based in Sydney’s sunny climates, interior designer can create intimate spaces for clients around the globe, especially in places that need extra warmth and softness. Hamel says that the bedroom is the most private and personal room in the house. “We need to make them feel like that.” Hygge is a design philosophy emphasizes soothing textures, rich wood accents, soft earth tones and soft colours. These bedroom ideas will help you get started, whether you are looking to make a significant change to your bedroom or want to improve the comfort of your home.
Add Wooden Touches
Wooden walls can add warmth to any bedroom, no matter how small or large. Hamel says it can be as simple or elaborate as a board cladding or as intricate as limed oak panelling. “If real wood is impossible, there are amazing wallpapers that mimic wood cladding.” Wood furnishings and accents can help to create a feeling of cosiness in places where panelling or wallpaper cannot be used.
Lighting can create ambience
Light is essential for a cosy bedroom. But not just any light. Hamel says, “There’s nothing worse than having a bright ceiling downlight shining directly on you when you’re asleep.” After dark, turn off overhead fixtures and focus on low-level light. You can use various lighting sources to create an ambience for a more intimate atmosphere. Natural light is, however, the best source of light. Below is an example of what our dream bedroom might look like.
Select a Dramatic bed
A four-poster bed will give your room the perfect cosy feel. You don’t have to use curtains or frills if you don’t like the look of amenities and crossbeams. A simpler version will be more practical with fewer posts and less fabric. Hamel says that four-posters are a great way to enclose and highlight the bed in a more oversized bedroom and give a smaller bedroom some drama and scale. It would help if you always chose a large scale–it should dominate the room.
Choose natural materials and colours that are soothing.
Think soothing and calm when it comes to colours and textures. Hamel says that bold graphic patterns don’t work well in bedrooms. Hamel says that he prefers smaller, intimate ways that work together and introduce rich, sensuous textures. These soft elements can be layered throughout the space to create a warm and welcoming feeling.
Hamel says that the first time a person touches the floor after getting up from bed, it should be on a soft surface. You don’t need to put down the carpet to create a comfortable atmosphere. Plush area rugs provide warmth and texture while also adding dimension. To add softness, you can place small shag or sheepskin rugs along the sides of your bed.
Protect the Windows
A bedroom that is too cold or bare can make it feel uncomfortable. Window treatments are essential for creating a cosy space. Consider your large windows. Curtains in strong patterns should be avoided. Curtains should not be drawn to dominate the area or distract from it.
Shut Out Tech
If you have an iPad or phone, you can’t unplug. You can make your bedroom low-tech or non-tech by adding books or natural elements like fresh flowers and plants to the space. This is a place where you can truly relax. We guarantee that the news will be there when your alarm goes off.
Keep in mind that minimalism doesn’t have to be boring.
A few exceptional pieces will fill the space. This is Laura Harrier’s dreamy scalloped bed frame. You can add personality and charm to your area by adding stand-alone pieces, such as a unique nightstand or an unusual light fixture, without sacrificing a simple, understated feel.
Choose an Unexpected Bed Frame
We’re talking furniture that speaks for itself, but don’t be afraid of buying a fun bed frame. Don’t we all want to be in bed every day? It might be fun to make it more enjoyable.
Darker colours will bring out the cosiness. To add another layer of comfort, paint your walls in a soothing and excellent tone.
There are no such things as too many blankets. Layer throws on your bed for a unique look and the perfect place to nap. You want your bed to be a sanctuary, so make sure you have plenty of pillows and soft linens.
Pillows and More Pillows
A plush, pillow-stuffed bed is the most inviting thing in the world. This bed is asking you to get in. We recommend choosing cosier pillows that are just as adorable as they are comfy. Although you don’t have to justify how many pads you place on your bed each night, it is a good idea to make sure they are more than decorative.
Make a Nook
No one said you had to be a child to find a secret hiding spot. Nobody. You can create a cosy bed nook for rainy days to isolate yourself from the rest of the world.
Florals: Add some colour
We aren’t trying to overwhelm with loud accents and patterns. Flowers can bring life to a space, and they are a great way to add colour without being overwhelming.
Embrace Your Wallpaper
A fun wallpaper can add depth and interest to a dull space. To reduce the noise, keep the rest of the room neutral. Add accents of wood or wicker to soften the impact of any additional decorative noises.
Add a personal touch.
To make your space stand out, highlight some of your most treasured trinkets or memories. You could display vases you have collected on your travels or just a photo of the family.
Get cosy by the fire…or pretend to!
You don’t necessarily need a functioning firebox to add warmth to your bedroom. For a more intimate atmosphere, gather trinkets and candles to decorate the mantel. Candles can also be used to create a sense of hygge. It would help if you blew them out before falling asleep.
Add leather accents
Leather accents can add warmth and texture to any room. For a cushion-like look, choose a leather bed frame. Match your side chairs with the bed frame to go the extra mile.
Knits are a great way to incorporate knitting.
We wish we could find something more welcoming than knit blankets. We can’t, so stock up on knit pillows and throws. You can even get a knit duvet to provide optimal comfort.
You can forget the bed frame.
You can save money and make your bedroom feel cosier by putting your mattress on the floor instead of a bed frame. To create the bedroom you desire, fill the space with different textures.
