Now more than ever, having a Bedroom space that soothes is so important—especially when work, play, school and self-care are all still happening in the same setting. Creating a peaceful oasis to unwind in is about encouraging relaxation with the look as much as with the feel, which is why both the design and comfort of the space itself are so important. From choosing a mattress that’s super soft and supportive to maintaining the right mood, here’s how to fashion the kind of Bedroom where you can turn up the dulcet tones of the rainforest and turn off the world for a while.

Now more than ever, there’s nothing like stepping away from it all and retreating to a cocoon-like Bedroom for quality hibernation.
A cozy Bedroom needs light, but not just any kind of light. Turn off the overhead fixture after dark and concentrate on low light. But of course, the best light source of them all will forever be natural light. See below for what our dream Bedroom would be.
“Bedrooms are the least public rooms in the house and very personal spaces,” says Thomas Hamel. “We should work toward making them feel that way.”
Whether your Bedroom is tiny or oversize, incorporating wood on the walls is the perfect way to add a sense of warmth. Choosing wood furnishings and accents can also help create that feeling of coziness in spaces where you can’t add paneling or wallpaper.
Bare, cold windows are one of the biggest ways to prevent a Bedroom from feeling snug and comfortable. Another tip to keep in mind if you have large windows? Don’t include curtains in a strong pattern. When drawn, they shouldn’t dominate or take away from the balance of the rest of the room.
Add some extra warmth to your room by playing with leather accents. Choose a leather bed frame for a cushion-like aesthetic. Go the extra mile and match your side chairs to the frame.
Remember, we’re not trying to overwhelm ourselves with patterns and loud accents. Flowers are the perfect way to breathe some life into a neutral space and add a touch of color that is anything but overpowering.
So whether you’re set on overhauling your sleeping quarters or just want some low-effort, big-impact pointers to create a homey refuge, consider these cozy Bedroom ideas to get you started.
