What your eyes see is texture and tones. Texture and color can be a magical combination in making your space feel cozy and Pinterest worthy. Adding texture to your space can also make it pop in photos. It gives your space the definition and depth it needs to stand out.
One of my favorite stores to shop at for decor is Home Goods. Let me tell you why.. I have a thing with shopping at thrift stores and antique stores. You never know what you’re going to find. I kind of feel the same way about Home Goods. There is something different in each store (which can sometimes be a bummer if you’re looking for something specific). However, it makes every shopping experience unique. When you go in you can see texture and tones popping out everywhere. I’ve also noticed that Home Goods coordinates items by color a lot of the times. They also separate by style and season as well. If you’re looking for a certain tone, no problem. If you’re looking for texture, head to the boho section. There’s seriously something for everyone. Below you’ll see my top 6 ways to make YOUR bedroom cozy!
1. Add emotion evoking tones and textures.
Add items to your space that evoke emotion. If you want to feel relaxed, add items that remind you of a relaxing time. For me the beach is a super relaxing place. I love to add light colors with a beachy feel. Pinks, whites, sandy colors, light blues. Picture a beach at sunset. #happyplace. Items that give you the feeling of a beach house but don’t necessarily say PUT ME IN YOUR BEACH HOUSE!
Some colors that you can add for a relaxing feel are pastels, blues, whites, neutrals. Sometimes warm colors relax people — red, orange, yellow.
2. Soften up the walls with wall hangings.
I love a good gallery wall. However, sometimes the typical frame can seem a little a little cold or rough. By adding items with texture to the wall it can soften the room up. I came across these BIG wall hangings by Cynthia Rowley at Home Goods. They ran about $100 but it’s totally worth it. (see below)
Hanging one on your wall, especially over the bed, will definitely soften the space up!
3. Add a soft / textured rug.
This might be one of the coziest parts of a bedroom, especially if you have wood floors. Go ahead and get yourself a shag rug for under those toesies in the morning. Thank me later. If you’re not about the shag rugs you can find a ton of different soft rugs. I’m also all about jute rugs. However, jute rugs give you a different feel. Jute rugs to me shout low maintenance beach house. (which I love, duh) but if you’re going for soft, go shag. <– lol
4. Pillows, pillows, pillows!
I feel like you can never have enough pillows.. or maybe I have a pillow addiction as Mike would say. What’s cozier than a pillow? Not kidding, Home Goods is my favorite place for pillows. Every bohemian-esque pillow I have is from there. You can find tassels, fur, pom poms, kilim.. everything! All of the above adds texture. That’s why I love me some tassels and pom poms. You should hop on the tassel train as well.
5. Add twinkle lights.
Yes. Add twinkle lights. What I mean is basically Christmas lights but white ones. I feel like this may be a little 90’s teenager bedroom but I like it. To me there’s nothing more cozy than lights hung in a room/bedroom. I have Oh Joy lights hanging in my living room. I hung them for Christmas and they never came down. I’m really OK with it.
6. Get yourself a hotel worthy sheet set.
Everyone knows hotel beds are comfy… or maybe I’m just always exhausted on vacation. Either way you need a cozy bed. Do it up. I’m talking fitted sheet, mucho pillows, flat sheet, comforter, duvet, quilt or throw blanket. Layer layer layer. Well except in the summer but fall and winter are coming aka cozy season. Head to your local Home Goods for ANY bedding you could ever imagine.
