5 Easy Ways to Create a Peaceful, Cozy Winter Bedroom

Changing seasons from hot to cold means spending more time in bed (or if that’s not an option, making time spent in bed as nurturing and rejuvenating as possible!)

  1. Oversized, upholstered beds and headboards not only solidly anchor a bedroom, but also give a warm, inviting place to read books or watch movies. Making it colorful adds a cheerful vibe to a chilly day, and allows the bed to easily transition through each season.

2. Two Words. LINEN. BEDDING. Cool in summer, warm in winter, totally worth the investment. Stone-washing creates additional lived-in softness.

3. Add a plush rug to sink your feet into when you finally do have to leave your bed.

4. Put a candle on it! Seriously though, candles (even when they aren’t lit), automatically create a calming vibe. Place on a shelf or ledge far away from the bed or anything flammable-(safety first!), which also makes it easy to enjoy the ambient view of flickering light!

5. Try a wall-sized mural opposite the bed, or a bold, framed print. Hints of subtle romance are a good way to maintain a warm feel, and line drawings evoke a dream-world of creativity, space, and imagination.
