In autumn as in winter, a very common desire is felt: to switch your room in cocooning mode. What could be more normal with the arrival of these seasons when the temperatures decrease and the days get shorter than to design an ultra cozy bedroom where it will be good to laze in the evening. Walls, textiles, floor, we can decipher 25 details that play a fundamental role in a cocooning atmosphere.
1. Bet on Scandinavian style in the bedroom
The Scandinavian-style bedroom is par excellence the one that makes us feel good … and that is clearly in tune with the times. Ultra cozy, it is dressed in natural colors that mingle with ultra soft materials such as velvet and wool, the whole is generally punctuated by green plants and a few designer pieces allowing the room to alternate between tradition and modernity.
2. Warm up the ensemble with a plaid
The bed is the first element you notice in the bedroom. Often simply covered with sheets and pillows, we often tend to forget to spread a plaid . In a more intense color than the sheets, to be noticed, the plaid has the function of making the room warmer and more cocooning .
3. Add a headboard for a cocooning room
Add a fabric headboard to gain comfort on the bedroom side. Choose this highly cozy detail in the tones of the bedroom and more particularly of the wall against which the bed will rest.
4. Dare to use dark colors for a cocooning decoration
The cocoon is synonymous with softness and serenity so we avoid flashy and fluorescent colors and very strong bold colors. For a cocooning decoration , we adopt neutral and timeless tones (beige, taupe, gray) that we will enhance with one or more colors that will give character and determine the spirit of the decoration. For an atmosphere that focuses on softness, we prefer pastel colors (pale pink, Scandinavian blue, almond green, mauve).
5. Focus on comfortable bedding
In a room that is as cocooning as it is comfortable, bedding plays an essential role. We therefore opt for a mattress with optimal comfort, a soft pillow and an enveloping duvet. The idea? Create a comfortable bubble entirely dedicated to rest.
6. Abuse wood for a cocooning room
There is nothing warmer than wood , and more particularly in the bedroom which is meant to be cocooning. Available in multiple varieties and colors, from wall to floor to furniture, wood gives character and authenticity to the room it occupies. Paneled walls, wooden headboard , wooded mirror, chair, bench and armchair, wood and its variations are everywhere to ennoble and warm.
7. Opt for voluptuous materials
For a room to be cozy, the accumulation of voluptuous and cozy textiles is a plus. The cocooning adult bedroom showcases various soft fabrics that are pleasant to the touch, starting with the thick curtains that accentuate the cozy atmosphere, as well as the warm and warm carpet and bedspread. Gain in the thickness of the windows, the bed through the floor is the key word of the cozy room!
8. Create a cozy corner near the window
To accentuate the cocooning character of the bedroom, we do not hesitate to create a cozy corner near the window. And for good reason, it is an absolutely ideal space to disconnect and relax in the sun. A few large cushions thick enough to spend hours on it will rest on the ledge. A few books nearby, and you can escape to the heart of the bedroom.
9. Accumulate cushions and blankets
To complete your cocooning decoration, multiply the soft cushions and blankets! We bet on a collection with different sizes, textures, prints , preferably in pastel tones : pink, blue, beige, yellow. Accumulated here and there, they will make the bedroom less smooth for a dream cozy interior. For plaids and bedspreads, choose soft , warm and comfortable textiles such as velvet, wool or lighter weight such as cotton or linen.
10. Arrange a blanket on your bed to reinforce the cocooning side
The plaid is a key element for a successful cozy bedroom. We favor soft materials that can be changed over the seasons. Faux fur, woolen, knit, velvet in winter and linen, silk, cotton very pleasant in warmer seasons. Opt for enveloping pastel colors that happily rub shoulders with these very soft materials.
11. Add a rug for a cozy atmosphere
A rug will warm up the ambiance of your room and make it even more welcoming. It will both stylize the decoration and keep your feet warm when getting out of bed. The choice is wide: fur rugs, Berber rugs, Scandinavian rugs … A single watchword: gentleness ! Favor soft materials and colors to reinforce the cocooning spirit.
12. Use comfortable and natural materials
Let’s start by looking at rattan, not to be confused with bamboo or wicker. This natural material comes from several plant species in Southeast Asia and is used for the manufacture of furniture or objects. It is popular with lovers of vintage style. In addition to being incredibly trendy, rattan brings a soft retro note that will only accentuate the cocooning aspect of your room. You are spoiled for choice for this and will be able to consider this natural material in total look or to use it in small touches.
Now let’s move on to flax. This fabric with multiple properties is made from cultivated flax fiber. Resistant to light and water, it can indeed be used indoors and outdoors , including in so-called humid rooms such as the bathroom. Linen is also known to be a thermal regulator, insulating in winter and breathable in summer. Elegant and refined, linen is essential to create a cocooning atmosphere in a bedroom. Combined with comfortable bedding, it’s the perfect combo for restful nights!
13. Integrate wood to strengthen the scandinavian side
The Scandinavian bedroom is the benchmark for cozy style. You are certainly familiar with the hygge concept – Danish cocooning where wood is in the spotlight. Indeed, it is as warm as you want, soft to the eye and brings an organic and zen touch to the bedroom. Here are some ideas for wooden furniture to make your bedroom a cozy little nest: a headboard, a Scandinavian bedside table, a bench, a chest of drawers …
14. Take care of the lighting for your cocooning room
Light is an essential element to create a soft and warm atmosphere. You will have to choose hot lights rather than cold to make your cocoon more welcoming. The idea is to create moody or even subdued lighting thanks to pretty wall lights on either side of the bed, a large pendant lamp or a floor lamp with soft luminosity above the bedside tables. Do not hesitate to multiply the sources of diffuse light by integrating here and there candles, lanterns …
15. Opt for a headboard
Another tip for a perfect cocooning room: the headboard . It will bring a very appreciable intimate, enveloping touch. It is a piece to be chosen with the greatest care by opting for qualitative and warm materials and details such as, for example, padded velvet, linen, solid oak. The top? A headboard with integrated storage to accommodate your frames, books, boxes … all your personal items.
16. Accessorize your cocooning room with a little decoration
To bring the final cozy touch, pamper the small decor of the room! This will bring even more personality to the room. Ideas are not lacking ! I particularly like the accumulation by dressing the wall above the bed because the atmosphere is then warmer. You can hang together, thanks to an elegant graphic game, a beautiful mirror , frames, paintings or even accumulate fans, hats … Make way for your creativity!
17. Tidy up your room for a cocooning effect to the mix
The more a room is tidy, orderly, the more it will be refined and conducive to relaxation. Many storage solutions are available to you. A chest of drawers or a wardrobe is still a good option. You can also opt for smaller storage: baskets, suitcases, chests,….
18. Tidy up to create a cocooning room
To maintain the cocooning and serene atmosphere of the bedroom, it is essential to tidy up regularly. Do not let yourself be overwhelmed by the accumulated disorder by sorting and optimizing the storage in your sleeping area so that it remains a space dedicated to relaxation and privacy.
19. Succumb to the charm of a winter wallpaper
Contrary to what one might imagine, trendy forest or country-style wallpapers will warm up the atmosphere of a room. This is the opportunity or never to succumb to it, for example it will have its full effect on the wall on the headboard side. A wallpaper in shades of gray to escape into mysterious landscapes as soon as you jump out of bed!
20. Fall for an English cottage style
Some decorative styles are more conducive than others to the invention of a cozy bedroom. Among them, the British cottage-style style is undoubtedly ideal for creating an intimate, refined and cozy atmosphere in the heart of the bedroom. A little extra bench, lots of cushions, old-fashioned colors and you get a room that looks back on time, ideal for wandering around all winter.
21. Bet on a rug in the cocooning room
If you’ve been dragging out the purchase of a rug for the bedroom for ages , entering a season when temperatures will drop is the best time to buy a cozy rug. We will preferably choose a very large size so that it covers the floor on each side of the bed to warm your feet as soon as you get up!
22. Arrange the attic for a cocooning decor
In the attic, the bedroom is warm without even using artifices to become so. Cozy and minimalist, it is very natural to become a quiet haven of peace, isolated from the rest of the house. The paneling and the small window make the place a small cabin to have the feeling of changing universes at bedtime.
23. Create a cozy atmosphere with curtains
Entirely white, the room is not cold for all that. Soberly furnished, it benefits from natural light, varying according to the time of day, becoming softer thanks to the curtains which create a subdued light in the evening, all for a soothing hushed atmosphere. Symmetrical down to the arrangement of the lamps, the cozy bedroom takes on the air of a small cocoon where it is good to meet up.
24. Create a mezzanine for a cocooning room
From the moment the bedroom takes place in a small space, it is immediately more cozy and warm. Installed in a mezzanine, the room benefits from a beautiful light thanks to the presence of Velux or skilfully worked lighting. A room with the air of a childhood cabin, sheltered from the noise of the rest of the house.
25. Play the chalet spirit card
Adopting the chalet style in its decoration is to guarantee conviviality and warmth to its interior … So neither one nor two, we do not hesitate to adopt it on the bedroom side to spend a winter … like in Megève! 100% comfortable materials, neutral colors where gray dominates, minimalist decoration, the chalet style will reinforce the cozy character of a room … The only strong point of this style? It will not spend the winter, and will be relegated to the closet as soon as spring arrives.
