accent pillow case baby burlap decorative How to turn your bedroom into a winter retreat with these cosy style ideas sofa pillow covers

There’s nothing better than a cosy nest when it’s bitterly cold outside. Make your bedroom a sanctuary with romantic bedding and soft carpet

To get your bedroom winter-ready, the rule is layer, layer, layer! Choose your most important layer first: your carpet. This is your starting point, after which you can take your pick of soft furnishings in complementing tones and textures to pile on top. Think cushions, pillows and throws – all in colours you love, to ensure you can use them again year after year.

Go for a neutral-coloured carpet to make sure any bedding colour combo works. This light charcoal style features warm tones and blends in seamlessly with this moody and romantic colour palette featuring deep crimson and blush tones in varying strengths and textures. Greys, browns and navy tones are the most versatile carpet colours and will go with almost any decor colour scheme.

Changing your flooring can make a dramatic difference in the bedroom, especially if your existing flooring is wood. Here we have laid Carpet Court’s Urban Luster (2074) from the Malmo range. Soft underfoot, durable and cosy – it’s the perfect choice for bedrooms.
