Tips for Creating a Cozy Bedroom
When it comes to cozy at home, most people tend to focus more on the living room. The bedroom is often a neglected area, but we spend so much time here, it’s important not to forget it. So we’ve put together eight top tips for bringing the cozy home design into the bedroom.
Decorate Your Bedroom
The bedroom is often not a priority when it comes to decorating, as it’s the one room in the house that is totally private and not used or seen by guests. However, it has a huge impact on your wellbeing so it should be given the attention it deserves. Think about how you want to feel in your bedroom and decorate it accordingly.
Scandinavian interior design and Cozy often go hand-in-hand. If you don't know where to start, take a look at Scandinavian interior designs to get some Cozy home inspiration for creating your own perfectly cosy space. Think calming colours, soft white lights and LOTS of blankets.
Keep it Tidy
A messy space will leave you feeling stressed and anxious, which we know is anything but relaxing. Try to keep ‘clutter’ at bay and only have things that you actually need or love in your bedroom. At the risk of sounding like Marie Kondo, all accessories should evoke soothing and happy thoughts and 'spark joy'.
Stick to a Neutral Colour Scheme
When it comes to Cozy home decor, it’s always best to opt for a neutral colour palette that isn’t too overwhelming. The colours you choose should create an atmosphere that is harmonious and peaceful. Bright colours can prevent you from relaxing, so choose wisely.
Think of Comfort
To achieve the perfect Cozy home design, it's important to relax. And, in order to relax, it’s important to be comfortable. Add plenty of pillows to the bed so that they can support you while you enjoy time out with a good book or snuggle with your partner. Also, make sure the temperature is just right. This should be about 18°c for sleeping, but you may want to have it a tad warmer during the day.

Light it up
Lightning is very important in Scandinavian interior design. Think minimalistic, warm lights that create a calming glow.
Lighting is extremely important in the bedroom and should be used wisely to create a cosy atmosphere. Twinkly lights or fairy lights are ideal when it comes to Cozy home decor. They add another layer to your lighting scheme and give off a very soft light which is perfect for bedrooms.
Enjoy the Space Around You
One of the fundamental aspects of Cozy is to enjoy the space you’re in, particularly when that space is at home. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary that allows you to take refuge from the stresses and worries of everyday life.
So, fill your bedroom with Cozy home decor that allows you to do this. Whether that be books, magazines, plants, artwork, music, or pets, simply choose the things that enable you to unwind and enjoy the small everyday pleasures that soothe your soul.
