How-To Style Your Bedroom for Fall/Winter

How-To Style Your Bedroom for Fall/Winter

Is it just me or does Fall become more and more romanticized each year? Pumpkin spiced lattes, richly-scented candles on every surface, tiny pumpkins on mantle pieces, and wool-lined shoes are hard to avoid. Personally, I am all here for it. Fall's romanticism is the only thing that can make me willing to accept the end of the summer months. Speak to me in January and February and things will be very different, so for now I am choosing to embrace this most nostalgic of seasons with open arms.

When it comes to your home and the onset of dark nights and chilly mornings, your efforts - and styling choices - mainly want to go towards creating a warm cocoon. In hotter climates, in comparison, you want your space to feel as airy and open as possible, therefore lighter colors, lots of natural light and minimal layering are the usual go-to style options. Your bedroom is the room in your home that you no doubt want to be the coziest of them all, and so we’ve gathered some tips to help you create a hibernation-station to see you through those darker evenings.

1. Opt for deep, rich colors in your paint and decor and don’t be afraid to feature clashing prints and patterns

Warming, opulent paint colors including dark red, terracotta, ochre, deep blue and dusky pink are set to be very popular this Fall, as we continue to see people experimenting more and more with colors and ‘banishing the beige’. If you are going for a more neutral shade on the walls, why not pair it with a complementary but bolder color on the skirting or the trim for added interest. The same goes for your upholstery - be brave and move beyond neutrals, adding a splash of colour in the shape of a favourite chair in the corner of your bedroom, or through your bedding or accessories such as curtains or scatter cushions.

The trend for nostalgia in interiors has also seen the return of classic prints and patterns of years past. Gingham is one such pattern that is making its mark on the interiors world. A gingham print in darker tones such as olive green and purple offers a wonderful opportunity to create a cozy bedroom scheme that feels very provincial England.

2. Choose good quality bed linen

Keeping warm without turning straight to your heating has never been so crucial, and you will need to invest in good quality materials in order to do so. Linen is a wonderfully cozy choice for bedding due to its soft, textured surface, and yet its built-in thermoregulating abilities that are the true stars of the show here. Linen's long, natural fibres make linen bedding breathable and absorbent, helping to regulate your body temperature as you sleep, meaning it will keep you warm even when the air in your bedroom is cold. Its density also means the fabric has a natural weight to it, making it feel like a comforting, warm embrace and easing you into a wonderfully deep sleep.

3. Use lighting to create a wintery ambience 

To create that warm cottage-feel (no matter where you live) you can use a mixture of low-level lighting including bedside lamps, lanterns, and our personal favourite, candles. 

Patterned and colorful lamps are particularly in this season, and we love the fact that they reflect uneven light and streaks of warm colour across the room. Don’t feel the need to have matching lamps on either side of your bed - or anywhere in the house! Embrace the eclectic, mismatched look for an authentic and rustic feel.

4. Go all ‘frazzled English woman’ when it comes to your layers

I’m very conscious that advising you to use layers for fall is the same as suggesting flowers for spring (‘groundbreaking’). However, there is a trend that is currently taking TikTok by storm that can be applied here: ‘the frazzled English woman’ aesthetic. TFEWA, as we shall be calling it from hereon, is essentially a continuation of the 2000s revival that has taken centre stage in the world of fashion this last year. Not sure what I mean by ‘frazzled English woman’? Think Bridget Jones with her skinny fringed scarf, knee high boots and midi length skirt. We’re seeing this trend move beyond fashion into interiors with clashing patterns, woolen knit blankets and decorative fringed layers. A soft checkered throw thrown over your armchair or the end of your bed will do the trick, adding an extra layer of warmth at the same time.
