Your bedroom should be a reflection of coziness and comfort, which can mean a variety of things based upon preference and style. People also want bedrooms to be crisp and clean, as a general rule, in addition to coziness. One way to marry the two concepts is to focus on the lines of the room and ensure they reflect elegance and simplicity. This can be done by focusing on three basic concepts: Texture, color and balance.
Texture plays a key role in making the bedroom cozy from the perspective of organic linens which will clearly outlast your conventional linens, organic or natural area rugs, fabrics, walls and furniture surfaces.
Textures can vary from soft to coarse, patterned to nubby, and shimmering to flat. Focus on textures that reflect your style and what makes you feel serene. However, adding a variety of textures can add dimension to your room. The most interesting decorative approaches often include a wide variety of textures meshed together in one cohesive approach. There are a variety of ways to incorporate texture from furniture styling to a throw on the bed. Some designers recommend using soft bamboo or organic cotton fabrics for the duvet cover or coverlet. And, a must for some, is crisp sheets, which provides that “hotel-like” feel. Another element to keep in mind is the texture used for the floor. Avoid tough surfaces which can feel like the equivalent of walking on sandpaper. Soft surfaces or rugs add to the coziness of the bedroom.
Color is also a key element in the overall feel of your room, primarily because it is most often linked to an emotion response. Warm colored rooms automatically seem warm, regardless of the contents or accompanying designs or furniture. However, don’t be afraid to use cool colors. Cool colors can be warm and cozy if done in a soft or deep color and accented with a warm neutral tone or warm stain color for wooden accents or furniture.
Balance is the third element of style that is fundamental to creating a cozy space. It entails a point and counterpoint approach to designing a room. For example, if your tastes tend to be modern or transitional, you might consider adding a sleek piece of furniture or area rug and contrast it with a textured fabric with a warm color. In spite of how sleek or contemporary you may like your spaces to be, adding enough detail in the right balance can add warmth to the typically sterile feel of modern styles.
*A fun tip is to use homemade or decors that you have personally made. This will add spunk and more of your personality to your room, without you knowing it. You can also save money through recycling and redesigning old mementos such as old suitcases or luggage and turn them into tables or night stands, even book shelves. Old lighting fixtures can be used as table and wall lamps. Plus this move also helps you save time from running around shops finding home decors and we love the idea of recycling!
