Now that the Autumn months are closing in, it is time to turn your bedroom into a comfy, cosy haven that will warm you up and relax you after battling the elements. If your heating is not working, an Indoor Portable Gas heater is a good solution. This list will help you craft the ideal ambience that will have you dreaming of getting home and snuggling up.
No more clutter
Clutter can cause instant anxiety so the first step is to get rid of all the bits and bobs. One way to tidy everything away is to get small boxes to organise and store in your drawers. Also, pay attention to the walls – too much clutter on the walls can upset the calm in the room too.
Spend a little more
A few essentials you should pay more for are the pillows, mattress, duvet, duvet set and sheets – diving into really soft sheets make a perfect bedroom. Go for sheets with a high thread count and then save on the duvet covers.
Creating the perfect ambience in your bedroom all depends on the lighting. The first thing to do is install a dimmer switch so you can control the brightness of your lights. Then get some of the battery-operated candles that have a timer so that they turn on and off each evening. Finally, a bedside lamp should complete the room, especially one that creates patterns on the ceiling.
Carpets and a rug
Even if the rest of your home is hardwood floors, your bedroom should have a carpet for ultimate comfort and cosiness. If you don’t want to have a carpet then definitely add a rug. The best rug for a bedroom is a sheepskin rug – you can position it on the floor or throw it over a chair.
Include a chair
A comfy chair is vital for a bedroom. It is a great place to relax when you get home and take off your shoes, sit in a towel after a bath and read a book on a Sunday afternoon. A chair that is lower to the ground with castors is perfect for a bedroom, especially with a snug blanket thrown over the arm. Have a look at our castor collection here.
Choosing the right smell for your room is very personal but it is a good idea to opt for a scent that helps to relax your body. Lavender is a particular favourite for those who need some aid with sleeping. Another lovely fragrance is fresh linen. This is very seasonal too – apple and cranberry candles are lovely in the autumn.
Keep your sheets and furniture chic and neutral. The unfussy nature of a pale palette is serene and soothing.
Add colour with accessories
At this time of the year, a blanket is a must and this is one way you can add a pop of colour to your bedroom. Maybe opt for an orange cuddly blanket and chocolate brown pillows or have your favourite Autumn photographs framed.
You can try customizing your blankets or pillow covers. You can get custom prints to suit your room decor and make it more like you.
One wall of colour
Bedrooms look great if one of two of the walls is covered in a bold colour such as soft teal or a subtly patterned wallpaper.

You have a beautiful blog. Makes me relaxed just to look at it. I’ve subscribed and I’m looking forward to more relaxing reads. I agree wholeheartedly on the clutter, my wife is awful and sometimes drives me nuts. I’ll get her to read this. Thanks for sharing
Thank you so much for kind words and welcome to the tribe. When you’re clear about your purpose and your priorities, you can painlessly discard whatever does not support these, whether it’s clutter in your cabinets or commitments on your calendar.
I am all about all things cozy and I love blankets and candles and drinking warm tea during the colder months! Great post 🙂
Nothing beats warm, cosy and comfort during the colder months ♡
I swear, candles can make anything better. My favorite are vanilla. I have one burning in my room nine out of the ten times! Great post!!!
Thank you Colleen. Yes, scented candles do make a huge difference to the mood, senses, ambience and the atmosphere. My current favourite is ‘Chardonnay’ by Rewined Candles – very earthy and perfect for this season.
I’m a big fan of decluttering and the minimalist look which people often say comes across cold and empty rather than ‘cosy’ but I really like these tips – you can create a homey vibe without compromising space.
De-cluttering is something I do every month and I absolutely love it. I used to think that minimalism has to be cold and boring, but on the contrary it’s more about keeping things you love and brings you joy ♡
