Inspiration gallery: cosy bedrooms

When it’s cold outside I can’t think of anything better than sinking into layers of cosy blankets with a box set and the heating cranked up. If you want to create an extra luxurious space this season then get some inspiration from this look book of cosy bedrooms I’ve put together.

Dark winter nights call for moody décor that feels both inviting and cocooning. I love this dark palette with soft carpet and a pop of mustard.

Carpetright’s Nordic Berber carpet in Graphite Cobble, £9.99 per sq m, makes an elegant choice for underfoot.

Opt for soft, luxurious materials for a rich, enveloping scheme. Think about mixing and matching shades to create a two-toned wall. For example, choose a darker green along the bottom and a pastel hue on top, which could help elongate your room, make the most of high ceilings.

Layer rich fabrics to create a luxurious padded bed for the ultimate in cosiness. For that extra wow factor choose a wallpaper with a repeat pattern. I love this one with gold detail.

Audran bed frame, from £959 for a double; Black and Gold Metal Tray Table, £48; Vintage mohair throw in Lacquer Red, £95, all Barker and Stonehouse.

A classically cut, padded velvet headboard with studs creates an elegant focal point. Pair with grey tones to create a restful space and natural materials for pared-back luxury.

The décor for this scheme was inspired by the work of Karl Blossfeldt. A range of his photos have been placed above the bed.

Opt for dark walls (Railings from Farrow & Ball is my favourite!) and layer with lighter bedding. Try wallpapering cupboards or wardrobes for a textured feel. You can also bring the outdoors in with house plants that look beautiful, clean the air and make you feel good.

Create a calm and cosy feel with low, soft lighting in the bedroom. Choose the right bulbs, as the colour of the light can impact your mood and the atmosphere of
the room. Look for LED bulbs with a warm glow which give off enough light for reading whilst also creating a soft mood.
