How to create a winter bedroom
Create a winter bedroom
Winter has arrived – with red noses, bobble hats and a biting nip in the air. Whilst we’re all out toiling during the day, the one thing that warms the cockles is the thought of heading home to a warm, snug den. If you’re anything like me, you’ll be heading straight to the slippers and throwing on a thick woolly jumper. But nothing will beat a thick, faux fur throw and large cushion to cuddle. No one looks forward to the cold arriving, and it seems us Brits will never get used to our sad lot of weather!
Silvers and greys
We’ve put together some winter looks to inspire you into creating your own winter den to hibernate in. We love grey, silver and neutral palettes when teamed with bold pops of colour. Winter doesn’t have to be dull, add glass to create a gorgeous reflective light in your room. Faux fur is very on trend right now. Whether you love wearing it or adding subtle touches to your room – we’re seeing it everywhere.
For a light and airy winter bedroom, we love white-washed floors and crisp white linens. Hang rustic photo frames on the wall to create a feature, and opt for our Versailles bed. The Versailles is so versatile and looks great with any of our French furniture. For a wintery look, add darker colours to the room, such as our petrol linen cushion. The more layers you add, the more sumptuous your bed will feel.
Create a hotel experience at home with our upholstered beds. We love our silver Armani fabric on our Berkeley bed – it’s so chic and so perfect for winter. It looks gorgeous with a faux fur throw, grey layers and crisp white linens. Add metallic lamps for a sophisticated sheen. These gorgeous greys and silvers will work effortlessly with bright colours, such as hot pink or magenta. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the colours.
