With the temperature dropping, and the nights feeling colder it’s easy to feel bummed out. I felt like I needed to do something to get me excited about the imminent winter (yes, we know “Winter is Coming”. Thanks Captain obvious aka Ned Stark), and so I figured I would start with cozying up my space. Here are five easy steps you can take to make your bed feel nice and warm.
STEP 1: Find some warm plush sheets that will add warmth.
I found this AMAZING polka dot microplush sheet set from the Berkshire Blanket line. At $39.99, it seemed like a bargain once I felt the sheets. Oh so soft……. Plus, I rarely splurge on something like this, so I figured “what the hey?”
Step 2: Add some fuzzy and warm throw cushions.
I shopped my house and rounded up all my fuzzy and warm cushions and paired them all together on the bed. I love the different textures of these cushions and think it helps add some interest.
For our bed, I like to stick with a neutral white duvet cover, so that I can add different elements whenever I want. To help add more coziness, I took my faux sheepskin from Ikea that usually lays on the floor and added it to the bed. I also put a warm throw blanket on the end of the bed to add even more texture.
Step 4: Choose warm tones.
Adding warmth is all about layering and different textures, and I didn’t want to forget about the floors. I recently cleaned out my daughters closet and rediscovered this cream and beige swirly shag rug that I had forgotten about. I gave it a quick vacuum and voila: perfect addition to my cozy winter bedroom.
Lastly, I added some cute accessories to help give the space some life. I picked up this really cool “arrow through a wood block” thing at Goodwill a year ago. I’m really not sure what it’s for, but I love it, and it also looks cute on top of a stack of old books.
This makes me want to go get back in bed and snuggle up.
Stay warm and cozy my friends, and I’ll be back again soon with another post.
