Autumn is here, and along with it comes cooler weather, colourful leaves, and a romantic atmosphere.
As this season brings darker and colder days, it is also perfect for snuggling indoors with a nice cup of hot tea. So why not take the time to make your bedroom more inviting and autumnal?
Here are some quick ideas on how to make your bedroom cosy and comfy for autumn:
Incorporate some autumn colour tones
What says autumn more than warm and rich colour tones such as rusty orange, chestnut, burgundy, chocolate and mustard yellow? By infusing these colours into your bedroom, you will instantly transform your space into an autumnal haven.
Bring in the big, heavy blanket
Another way to cosy up your bedroom is to switch out your bedding to a more wintery option, and dress it up with a big, fluffy winter doona. Add in some knit blankets or faux-fur throws, which will definitely come in handy to provide an extra touch of warmth during the colder nights!
Rug it on
Cold floors are the worst. But whether your bedroom has hard flooring or carpeted, adding rugs will definitely increase the cosy factor. Use a rug with bold autumn colours or patterns as an accent piece, or go for more neutral rugs for a harmonious feel.
Make use of decorative pieces
The easiest way to bring autumn into your bedroom is with decorative items. Display orange and red leaves or branches, woodland motifs, wood furnishings, artisanal ornaments or golden accent pieces. If you are feeling more adventurous, try an autumn-themed wall decal or some rustic furniture.
Play around with the lighting
Indoor lighting is an important element of your bedroom design, and can make such a big difference in the overall look and feel. Get ready for the cold season by adding multiple light options to create the perfect lighting scheme. Consider a bedside or table lamp with a low-watt bulb for soft lighting, or pendant lighting to create relaxing ambience on darker days. In keeping with the autumnal theme, pick lights that feature wood, natural materials, deep warm tones or metallic finish such as gold and brass.
