With a severe cold snap hitting much of the U.S recently, we turned to the contemporary interior designers at Décor Aid for inspiring tips to elevate your bedroom with style to combat the seasons chillier climate.
After all, when it comes to outfitting and updating your bedroom to keep you comforted in stylish warmth, you’ll find that by paying attention to those in the know, you’ll have a much easier time discovering the best and least expensive ways for a quick room refresh. And since you should consider your bedroom a relaxing oasis that’s all about rest and recharging, a fresh rethink on winter bedroom décor is sure to work to your benefit.
ADD HEAVIER CURTAINS
While it’s vital to reseal your bedroom windows if you live in a colder region, heavier curtains can also help to keep your bedroom warming by blocking off any breeze. Leave lighter curtains up for warmer seasons where you want to take advantage of the extra daylight and switch them out once fall hits. Double-faced and layered curtains will be well worth the investment while they’ll also work to add subtle sophistication to your bedroom décor.
Sure, warmer months can be brighter during the day, but when it comes to winter, a layered approach to lighting your bedroom will make it feel all the more comforting and cozy. Get the look right with lighting from various sources placed at various heights for an extra warm effect.
BRING IN THE DRAMA
Add a sense of brooding, seductive glamour by bringing in a few dramatic, room-defining pieces to make your bedroom feel all the more well-judged and unique. Just keep in mind that balancing heavier items like a graphic animal patterned chair and a mirrored screen is essential, with nothing competing with each other to distract the eye with heavy-handed décor.
One of the most stylish, easy, and least expensive winter bedroom updates is to bring in a mix of striking, juxtaposing textures that feel sumptuous to the touch.
From cashmere and faux fur throws to layers of textured bedding, contrasting textures makes for a clever way to lend your bedroom a richer and more inviting feel with little expense or effort.
BRING IN A PLUSHER RUG
Keep your feet safe from morning chills by bringing in a heavier, plusher rug in darker colors to set the tone for your bedroom during the winter. Or you could opt for a brighter optical white to keep your bedroom feeling brighter during the day.
SWITCH OUT ART & DECORATIVE OBJECTS
When it comes to updating and refreshing any room in your home, another savvy décor trick is to simply switch out and move around decorative accessories and objects for the least expensive and easy to manage way to revive a room. And do experiment with new placement of existing items for refreshing takes on your favorite treasures.
UPDATE PRINTS, PATTERNS, AND COLORS
Another great way to bring your bedroom to life this winter is to bring in moodier prints and patterns as summer styles will instantly seem out of place. Create a comforting ambiance with heavier textiles that feature more graphic symmetrical prints to help you make a cozy reading nook to unwind in in your bedroom.
And though we’re not calling for completely new fabrications as temps drop, it only makes sense to skip out on bright, cherry, and bold prints and patterns during the winter. After all, how out of place would bed sheets that are covered with say oranges, look while it’s snowing outside?
CREATE COMFORTING COLOR PALETTE
Though we’ve talked about creating a moodier vibe during the winter in your bedroom, if dark brooding colors or too heavy for your or don’t fit in with your current décor, optic white will keep it looking bright and airy throughout the darker days of the season.
