Winter is right around the corner, which means we’re all gearing up for months spent with our loved ones, festive holiday decor to decorate our homes with, and long nights tucked into bed with a cup of hot chocolate within arm’s reach.
Since the bedroom is where we spend most of our time, it’s the best place to get the festive energy flowing.
Here are some of our favorite tips and tricks to integrate holiday decor into your bedroom in an inviting way:
The holiday season doesn’t really feel complete without a good set of fairy lights, and no part of your home should be spared from this treatment.
Finding luminous lights to adorn your patio, mantel, or Christmas tree is essential for feeling cozy and keeping your space well lit now that earlier evenings are to be expected.
Use candles for additional warmth and an inviting look. Scented candles can be especially useful to help get you in the holiday mood - think candied apples, cinnamon and nutmeg, or warm cider fragrances.
If you like the warm glow of a candle but don’t want open flames in your bedroom, try switching them out with ones that use LED lights instead - they look just as comforting.
To make sure you’re staying cozy and warm all winter, equip your room with the most comfortable mattress you can, along with layers of different textured bedding you know can add to the overall coziness of your space.
There are also more subtle ways you can choose to keep your bedroom cozy with holiday decor. Consider adding on some layered bedding for extra comfort, using tinsel to line your windows, or getting a small throw blanket for your armchair so you can really cozy up when it’s time for some bedtime reading.
Your holiday decor won’t be complete without a color scheme that fits just right. Color schemes that work for holiday decor include the classic red and gold, but for your bedroom, where something more subtle is necessary for a good night’s sleep, you might consider using shades of blue, frosty white, and metallic accents to complete that winter-holiday feel.
Don’t feel like redecorating your entire bedroom? There are still ways you can incorporate a color scheme within accent pieces of your space that will help you achieve a similarly festive look.
Sticking to a decor theme helps the bedroom look beautiful while still remaining personal to you. Here are a couple of ideas to get those creative juices flowing:
Rustic Holiday Decor - For a bedroom that really hones in on comfort, think about adding different textures of bedding, using warm, earthy tones, and keeping things looking natural and inviting.
Monochrome Holiday Decor - Stick to a color scheme when you decorate your space to help keep your style super focused. The classic red and green, or a calmer blue and white, can both work really well in the bedroom.
Traditional Holiday Decor - Incorporate a Christmas tree and stockings into your bedroom for a room that really looks ready for the season. A plate of cookies and a glass of warm milk each night is just the right thing to do - for Santa, of course!
Holiday season is one of the most wonderful times of the year, and is the perfect opportunity to reset your space. By sprucing up your bedroom using festive decorations and holiday decor, you’re going to be left with a space that’ll keep you nice and cozy all season long.
