Creating a home that’s both cozy and welcoming from top to bottom is something I’m always striving for. But if there’s one space that deserves to get some extra time and attention, it’s most definitely the bedroom, in my book. Let’s think about it – it’s the very first space you’ll wake up to in the morning, and the place you’ll always retreat to after a long day. It’s only fair that it delivers those warm and welcoming vibes you crave!

Of course, getting started on creating your dream bedroom retreat can feel a bit easier said than done. If you’re in the market for a few tips to get you on the right track, I’ve outlined my top suggestions for creating an inviting bedroom space that you’ll be falling in love with in no time. Grab a pen and enjoy!

Treat Yourself to Bedding You’ll Swoon Over

This first design features the Shiprock Pouf, the Tahoe Area Rug, the Bundle Sofa, the Bundle Chair, the Khalo Wall Hanging, the Serengeti Pillow, the Fiona Leather Pillow, the Dashing Throw Pillow & the Bramble Throw Blanket. I love the pattern on the poufs and it isn’t too busy against the neutral rug. The macrame Khalo wall hanging brings a playful, boho feel to this design. The leather on the Fiona leather pillow brings a touch of warmth to the space. I love the clean modern lines of their Bundle sofa and chair!

Though it’s totally
common to think of big furniture pieces as having the most impact, it’s the little details that are
the true showstoppers.

Add Instant Coziness with the Perfect Area Rug

I think it’s pretty safe to say, area rugs are like pure magic – especially in a bedroom space! Whether you’re using one to cozy up some cold flooring or tone down a shade of carpet you’re not loving, there’s no doubt they offer endless function. But an area rug also tends to serve as the last (and possibly best!) piece of the puzzle in many of my bedroom designs because it instantly pulls a room together, helping it feel both cozy and complete.

Need some guidance on the perfect rug for your space? Both vintage and boho options are right on trend at the moment, and you can’t go wrong with either. Of course, if you’re a fan of frequent décor switch-ups, I’d recommend keeping things simple and timeless so that you’ll be able to hang onto it for years to come. Think something along the lines of this versatile and perfectly simplistic option!

Create a Wow-Factor by Mixing in Textures

IFrom accent pillows to wall décor, incorporating texture means you’ll be adding in those textiles, materials and colors that all contribute to a swoon-worthy bedroom. Though it’s totally common to think of big furniture pieces as having the most impact, it’s the little details that are the true showstoppers.

Want a place to kick your feet up at the end of the day? Add a couple of cozy poufs at the foot of your bed. Hoping to add some visual interest to a big bare wall? A wall hanging could be the perfect way to express your creativity and add a sense of warmth to the room. The options are truly endless!

At the end of the day, a bedroom should feel like the perfect expression of your own unique style. Keep these tips on-hand, and I have no doubt you’ll be well on your way to creating an inviting bedroom space that’s just too good to leave!
