The shorter days and cooler temperatures call for cozy corners to escape the elements, and the coziest place inside your home should be your bedroom — a personal, intimate space reserved only for you. When it comes to bedrooms, the design rules are simple: create a dreamy retreat with layers, light, and comfort in mind.
Layers bring warmth, softness, and comfort, so add rugs, pillows and blankets to your bedroom. When thinking about light, there are two things to consider: how you want to enjoy the space during the day and how you want to enjoy the space at night. Whether you want to rise with the sun or prefer to sleep in, layered draperies give you the most options for filling the room with natural light.
Whether you are updating your chambers for the season or need a complete overhaul, explore these cozy bedrooms from the Beth Haley Design archives and start dreaming!
Bring soothing shades in the bedroom with warm neutrals. Waking up is easy when you are surrounded by calming colors, but layers of warmth and texture make falling asleep a breeze.
Dark colors are said to fend off insomnia. Opt for dark greys and purples if you have a tough time sleeping. Remember: dark doesn’t mean dreary or drab. Also, flowers and artwork go a long way.
Understated is okay in the bedroom. Save the color, drama, and intrigue for the living space and keep your bedroom simple. Beth Haley often weaves white, grey, and purple into a bedroom design.
Don’t let the sunrise disrupt your slumber. Opt for heavy drapery to keep out the light so that you can snooze more soundly in the morning.
Color and Texture
When we think of texture in the bedroom, we often think of fluffy rugs, blankets, and pillows — but furniture, finishes, and even the walls can add texture, too. This colorful, texture-filled bedroom perfectly reflects the homeowner’s personality.
This entrancing work of art will relax the mind and ease you into a deep sleep. When designing the bedroom of your dreams, don’t forget to decorate the walls.
