Bedroom Styling Tips for the Cooler Months

Winter Bedroom Styling Tips from Basic Habitat

By Dani Wales

Changing the styling in your bedroom for winter is a simple way to avoid getting the winter blues about your home… You know when you’re stuck inside because it’s cold and wet outside, but everything is the same inside so its not exciting? Well exciting it will be, because today I’m sharing my top three tips on “Bedroom Styling for the Cooler Months”, and just a heads up, it’s ALL about texture and warmth.

As you would have seen on Healthy Homes today, we started with a very blank canvas that wasn’t terrible, but it definitely lacked character and warmth. Now most bedrooms I see around the country are much like this as many of us simply don’t have the time or money to spend on styling up our bedroom, but with some key pieces you can make some easy and long lasting changes.

So buckle up and get ready for some winter styling fun with Basic Habitat

1. Explore your dark side // Darker colours with a warm base tone will instantly change the feeling of your room, and for the better! I like to layer darker colours underneath any throws, cushions or blankets that I may include. Keeping your base colour neutral will allow you flexibility to add pops of colour through your textiles and décor pieces. The quilt cover I selected for the bedroom styling segment on Healthy Homes was the Palamos Quilt Cover and Pillowcases by Spanish label Mikmax.

2. It’s all about texture // Introducing different textures with your bedding and decorative items will add a new dimension to your space. Tactile objects like marble, ceramic, raw stone and even different types of wools will ignite your senses and have wanting to work from your bedroom. I selected multiple textural elements for the bedroom stying segment including Chunky Knit Cushions, marble décor pieces for the bedsides, multiple different fabrics in the bedding and of course indoor plants. Another tip is to include a small timber stool or side table in the room and pile it with spare blankets that are within easy reach… texture and warmth!
