5 Simple Ways to Cozy Up Your Bedroom

Home & DIY

My husband and I have been talking about different ways to change up our bedroom.  We want to create a unique space in the home that is just for us.  We are in the process of creating an accent wall for behind our bed, which got me thinking.  Once that is complete what small simple touches do I want to add/keep to create a super cozy feel.

1 – All About the Bedding

It is all about the bed, lets talk big fluffy pillows with sheets on blankets on blankets.  It is always a pleasure to come home from a long day/night and flop down onto a heaven of duvet and fluffy goodness.  There are so many great options for wonderful bedding, though I tend to sway towards the all season down duvets from Parachute Home and chunky knit blankets from Lily and Pea Body.

 2 – Adjust Your Lighting

Lighting can make all the difference, bad lighting is never a good thing.  It is always nice to have a couple of different lighting options in the bedroom.  Adding bedside lamps made all the difference in our bedroom.  Another great option is to add a mobile strand of lights somewhere around the room, whether it is a small strand of twinkle lights or larger bulbs the outcome is stunningly cozy.

3 – Choose A Scent

Candles add a romantic cozy touch to the room as well as make it smell magical.  I have recently fallen for Harlow Skin Co. and their ‘Fresh Morning’ candle.  This is by far my scent of choice, I love filling the air in our bedroom with a scent that brightens your day.  It can make all the difference in your mood and feeling extra cozy.  This tip is super affordable and catered to your specific interests.

4 – Decorate Your Space

Fill your walls with images of encouraging phases or photos of loved ones.  There is nothing more inviting than feeling loved and encouraged the moment you walk in.  Organize your photographs, create a collage wall, and show off some of your favourite artists all in one space.

5 – Finish it off with a Rug

One of my favourite aspects of our bedroom is our shaggy rug.  When I wake up in the morning and take my warm toes out from under the covers there is nothing better then to have them nestled into my cozy shag area rug.  It adds so much charactor and such a cozy feel to our bedroom.   There are so many great rugs out there, I have found some lovely ones at Rugs USA and Ikea.

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.
This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.
For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀

  • Don't forget to take time to stop and smell the flowers & to stop in and check out @musefashion at Highstreet. Their pop up shop ends on Sunday, have you had a chance to go?
