After a summer of long, warm nights, embrace the cool evenings and any excuse to bring the blankets out of hiding. It’s time for a bedroom update, the evenings are drawing in and there’s never been a better time to cosy down for a duvet day.

Layer up

Whether its blankets, rugs, cushions, think maximalist this winter. Texture is key, so layer knitted throws on the bed, add a rustic woven basket to hold spare blankets and cover the floors with a thick rug to create a warm welcome. Switch out your light summer duvet set and replace it with a heavy knit blanket and a faux fur throw to complete the scene.

Grey skies

Don’t fight the change in the weather, embrace it with a beautiful grey colour palette. Grey interiors are going nowhere and it’s the perfect hue for the bedroom. The ideal neutral, it’s perfect for layering up in different tones to create a serene feel. Grey is a great base to take you through all seasons as it can be matched with so many accent colours.

Life of luxury

Staying in is the new going out once we hit winter, so indulge in making your home somewhere you can’t wait to get to. Metal accents from lamps to mirrors bring luxury in the finer details, while bolder furniture pieces in gold take the trend to new heights. If softer textures are more your thing, velvet cushions stacked on the bed couldn’t be more welcoming, especially in beautiful rich colours like these. The idea here is to combine a variety of heavy textures to create warmth on top of your cool, neutral metallics.

Brighter days

Pops of colour to brighten up the dark nights and cold days are easy with small changes that go a long way. When decorating with dramatic hues, a little bit goes a long way, in rooms like this one a bright cushion or a throw blanket is perfect. If neon chartreuse isn’t for you, saturated jewel tones are strong enough to hold their own even when it’s stormy outside.

Alpine retreat

Faux fur and light wood evoke ski chalet cool in a bright space. While pure white is serene and perfect for the summer, the creamier tones of winter white are best for creating warmth. Pick a palette of cream and soft neutrals and add texture for cosiness. To avoid your bedroom looking too plain add a splash of colour, even if it’s a wood tone or a soft grey it’ll make or the difference.
