Styling Your Bedroom For The Changing Seasons

Interesting for: Buyer, Seller, Investor, Rental Provider, Renter, Lifestyle

As we prepare for the cooler months ahead, it is a great time to redesign your bedroom so that it is cosy, yet functional and inspiring. Well-chosen pieces and thoughtful styling are key to creating a bedroom that embraces your personality whilst providing trans-seasonal comfort.

Function First
Take pause before you begin styling to consider how you will use the space. Do you want to prop yourself up in bed to read a book or watch your favourite tv series? Or do you crave  minimalism and ease with paired back, fuss free bed styling? Even the smallest of bedrooms can be broken into ‘zones’ to create areas to sleep, play, work and rest. Think about how you need the space to work.

Turn to Nature for a Theme
If you’re stuck on inspiration, an ideal place to start is by looking outside! You can’t go wrong with the colours of Mother Nature: autumnal rich tones or a sandy beach awash with sea spray. You can always incorporate a beloved theme. Think boho, Scandi, modern or beachy.

Select your core colours and build on from there. But restraint is key. Ultimately, this is a space for sleeping and too much going on can be a distraction. Use storage and shelves to hide away personal items and books and keep the bedding comfortable and practical.

Neutral furniture is best as it won’t date quickly. Buying quality bed linen ensures that it will stand up to frequent washing and last for many years. Smaller decor pieces, artwork and wall decals can be used to add personal style and bursts of colour.

Add Inspiring Layers
There are certain fabrics that aid sleep through their comforting properties. Linen and silk are two of the best fabrics in bedding as they help to regulate the body’s temperature, keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter. Natural fibres like pure wool and cotton, also ensure cosy sleep allowing air flow to circulate whilst maintaining warmth. Adding an interesting throw blanket or woollen pelt will not only elevate the styling but add additional warmth when needed through all seasons. For bed linen, cotton layers comfort even the hottest sleepers. Make it seasonal with light cotton sheeting for summer, warm flannel in the winter.
