Tossing and turning in bed and can’t sleep? Does the awakening seem excruciating and difficult? It’s time to think about your surroundings and make changes to the design of your bedroom!
The bedroom should be comfortable. This uncompromising condition is fundamental for peace of mind, good sleep, and joyful awakening. The bedroom should give peace and the feeling of a warm nest, even when it rains outside the window and the heating has not yet been turned on. However, modern trends of minimalism often provoke the creation of overly laconic interiors, devoid of warmth. And nevertheless, even the most restrained interior can be supplemented with softness if you use a number of simple, but extremely effective techniques in the design.
The main thing is to take care of the right mood. A couple of decorative touches will help to create it.

Knitted textiles can transform any interior. It is enough to lay a wide blanket with “braids” on the bed, add a few pillows in knitted covers and the room will change its mood. Choose natural gray and earthy shades when choosing yarn colors. And choose a thread from cashmere or from merino wool – this is a natural fiber that will withstand more than one wash and at the same time retain its original appearance, softness, and shape.
Use soft, pleasant textures. A plaid or soft knitted bedspread, a warm-colored woven rug or a deerskin under your feet will help create comfort thanks to the caressing tactile sensations.
2. Holiday all year round
Traditionally, lights in the form of garlands and lanterns are obtained on New Year’s holidays. They are used to decorate a festive interior and rarely used in everyday life. But remember how comfortable it is to sit in the evening by the window, entwined with dozens of small warm lights. They can be wonderful decor for a bedroom. Electric garlands create an intimate and somewhat fabulous atmosphere, bringing our thoughts back to childhood and bringing back memories that fill the heart with peace and inevitably bring a smile.
3. Royal comfort
The canopy transforms an ordinary bed into a cozy nest. In modern interiors, it serves an exclusively decorative function, although its roots go back far into the past when the regal bed was decorated with silk canopies to protect the royals from annoying insects. The canopy can be easily attached to both the ceiling and the wall. The classic version of the canopy is a tent above the bed, which is mounted on supports or ceiling cornices. The simplest and most mobile option is a canopy on a frame. It can be hung from a ceiling or wall and removed if necessary.
Or you can purchase a canopy bed that already has this charming element. The best way to do it is to do it online and New York Furniture Outlets is the best possible site for this.
Add decorative pillows. The more varied their shapes and decor are, the better, the main thing is that the pillowcases are made of materials that are pleasant to the touch.
4. Red flower
Fire is an ancient symbol of comfort. In addition, scented candles with natural oils are well-known aphrodisiacs. A small artificial fireplace decorated with elegant white candles will look great in the bedroom interior. And candle lanterns are a good alternative to bedside lamps. But do not forget about safety – never leave burning candles unattended, do not place them next to curtains or on the floor near the bed.
This is a good alternative to local lighting: the sight of a living flame evokes associations with a home and is able to create coziness in the most ascetic interior. The impression can be enhanced by placing a small mirror in an elegant frame behind the candlesticks.
5. The color of the night
The atmosphere in the room directly depends on the color of the walls. The color scheme of the bedroom can be very different. But if you’re looking to create a special setting, don’t dwell on one shade. Choose one leading color and several harmonious accents to it. Red, blue and black are not the best choices for the main color, these shades can have a negative effect on the nervous system, which means that it will be problematic to relax and regain strength. But for accents, blue and black are good choices, as are green, orange and yellow. Green, yellow, and pastel cream tones are considered the most comfortable and inviting.
6. Successful duet or elegant solo
Wallpaper can perform solo or play in tandem with painted walls. This is a great way to highlight and zone a space. In addition, a well-chosen pattern and texture add volume and can change the geometry of the room. A sophisticated touch to the interior is given by wallpaper in a deep blue and warm chocolate shade. Wine, dark lilac, and deep dark green are also good solutions for the bedroom. Always a safe bet – pastel-colored wallpaper with a small pattern.
7. Veil of light
The light that floods the bedroom in the morning is part of the interior. Curtains help to make it softer and more diffused. Tulle draperies can be very different – loose, tied with a careless knot or with tie-backs. At the same time, there is no need for heavy curtains – they do not so much create coziness as they make the room heavier and create a barrier to natural light. Light translucent cotton fabrics with an unobtrusive pattern or texture will make the bedroom truly cozy.
Instead of plain panels of cold or neutral colors, a cozy bedroom prefers curtains in a warm color spectrum or with a “simple-minded” floral pattern: they will create a more positive mood.
8. Soft cloud
A soft headboard is an attribute of an elegant and cozy interior. It is as if it invites you to soak up carelessly in fluffy pillows and smoothly find yourself in the arms of Morpheus. You can assemble such a headboard yourself or use life hacks. For example, hang a long pillow on the wall behind the bed or decorate the headboard with soft seats from chairs.
Another win-win is the high voluminous backrest, which is fixed with the base to the wall. It will create a sense of security and turn even an ordinary bedroom into cozy rooms.
Another option can be is decorating the wall behind the headboard. Are the monochromatic walls of the bedroom boring and breathing arctic cold? Just a couple of strips of colored wallpaper with a large floral pattern on the wall behind the headboard – and with such a semblance of “carpet” the sleeping area will acquire a more attractive character. Make sure that this insert is not discordant with the general color scheme of the room.
9. Beauty from nature
To add a slight carelessness to the bedroom interior, use decor made from natural materials. For example, place a couple of tree stumps instead of bedside tables, or make a curtain rod from a birch branch. Such little things give charm and personality, emphasize freedom from stereotypes, and create a cozy atmosphere. In addition, this is the most budgetary way to decorate the interior with taste.
