5 simple ways to create a cosy bedroom haven this autumn

The colder months are just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about creating a cosy bedroom haven to escape to. We’re saying goodbye to the summer interior trends and embracing orange hues, cosy blankets and plush headboards. We have come up with 5 simple ways to turn your bedroom into luxurious haven this autumn.


  • Warm maple tones

This autumn, maple tones are set to be a popular choice for Interior Designers. Inspired by the turning leaves, red, russet and yellow hues give an interior scheme a cosy, yet vibrant feel. As the weather gets colder, add some warmth into your palette with inviting auburn, caramel and honey shades, accentuated with accents of brass or gold. For a subtler look, use luxurious orange soft furnishings or accessories to warm up a neutral colour scheme.


  • The luxe look

Introduce a touch of decadence into your bedroom this autumn with art-deco inspired luxe. Think gilded accessories, velvet fabrics and embossed statement wallpaper. We’re also seeing more rounded shapes, ornate, metallic lighting and decorative embellishments being used to create a feel of pure luxury. The revival of this luxury look is perfect for the colder months, as rich, golden tones and luxurious fabrics will warm up any room.


  • Statement headboards

Headboards have slowly been growing bigger and bolder over the years, making the bed the centrepiece of any well-designed bedroom. Whether you go for a plush button-back headboard or bold, patterned fabric, make your bed irresistible with a statement headboard. Keep your palette consistent by coordinating your headboard with the colour scheme in your bedroom and avoid clashing colours and materials. Matching cushions and an ottoman at the end of the bed will also help to maintain that feeling of comfort and luxury in the bedroom.


  • Black is back

It’s time to say goodbye to those pastel summer shades and hello to a moodier palette this autumn. Black, navy and dark greys are all coming back into trend this year, paired with rich velvet or leather textures to create an atmospheric interior. If you do decide to go over to the dark side, try to keep your scheme simple and sophisticated to avoid an overly dingy interior. A navy feature wall or simple black furniture will suffice, teamed with glowing golds and brass accents.


  • Layer up

Think blankets and throws, rich textures and quilted furniture; in other words, anything that invites you to snuggle up and enjoy your haven. As the fabric of the year, velvet is going to continue to be a popular choice this autumn, which is perfect for cosying up to during the colder months. Large, fluffy area rugs are also still going strong this season and luxurious soft furnishings will help to maintain that feeling of decadence.
