You don’t need to spend a fortune on under-floor heating and double glazing, simply follow these five affordable décor tips from the Garden and Home team for a quick seasonal update.
1: Incorporate warmer colours and materials
Swap your light summer duvets for thicker inners and look for duvet covers in richer, jewel-like colours. You can also change your curtains for ones with a heavier weight. Look for cheerful colours to brighten things up and thicker materials to up the snug factor.
Tip: Here’s a unique and quick way to stuff a comforter inside a duvet cover, all by yourself!
2: Get the layered look
The secret to giving your bedroom personality is by layering. Start with linens, then add blankets, quilts or throws in contrasting or complementary colours. Finish off with textured scatter cushions. Texture is important so include super soft fleece, plush chenille and trendy faux fur to add a luxe look.
Tip: Arranging throw pillows a certain way can add an instant look and feel to any bedroom.
3: Light it up
When the days get darker, the right bedside lamps and lampshades will give your room a warm atmospheric glow. You can also hang a mirror on an empty wall to reflect and maximise natural light.
Tip: Know your lamp shades.
4: Don’t get cold feet!
Never step out of bed onto a chilly floor again! A bedside rug is not only a practical addition, but it will also tie the look of your room together.
Tip: Bedroom rugs do’s and don’ts.
5: Decorate away
Lastly, finish off your look with these seasonal decorative pieces and voila – your bedroom is ready for autumn.
