Creating a Winter Wonderland Bedroom

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

I don't know about you but I have really felt the cold this week. My winter wollies have come out of hibernation and I'm trying to keep a dreaded cold at bay. Despite its cold and rigour, winter has its own unique beauty and elegance. Relaxing and soothing colour palettes, intricate ornaments of snowflakes, simple yet peculiar forms of icicles - all this can be an incredible source of inspiration when it comes to decorating our homes, bedrooms in particular. Winter looks especially beautiful in the countryside: huge snowdrifts, tall spruces dressed in white, sparkling frost - surrounding landscape looks like in a fairy tale. In this post today we will share several ideas on how to bring the winter wonderland into your bedroom décor. Colours Colours, typical for winter are white of snow, blue-greys and greys of sky and little touches of brown and black - these are the trees. This palette is just perfect to use for decorating a bedroom: it looks very relaxing, calming and soft. It will allow you to unwind after a long, tiring day and peacefully plunge into sleep.

There is so much care and love in this gesture: they will protect fragile plants and trees from сold, will not allow them to die during the most severe winter days. Layers at home are also associated with comfort, cosiness and care. Besides, they create intrigue and interest in the space: our eyes literally wander around, not knowing where to stop and guessing, what is hidden behind. To add layers in a bedroom, think of throwing on a bed some extra pillows, warm plaids and soft comfy furs. Don’t leave your windows naked, always dress them with curtains and lace - it will create a feeling of shelter and security.

The more texture you bring, the more relaxed it will look and feel. Think of the glassy ice on the rivers and bring this texture in the form of mirrors and silver finishes, get inspired by intricate shape of snowflakes. Natural wood will bring cosiness and warmth, while exposed brick remind of a rustic charm of village houses.

Lighting that creates atmosphere a sense of mystery and a feeling off warmth and love. Too recreate a Winter Wonderland look in your bedroom, some companies have special winter collections of decorative lighting, which will fill your bedroom with romance and remind of your childhood dreams. Alternatively you can also use simple holiday lights and wrap with them various fixtures in the room - think of mirror frames, headboards, cornices and four poster bed.

Twisted dry branches, spruce, birch logs and cones are the objects, usually associated with winter. Then it depends on your taste, whether to make of them intricate and abundant decorations, or use them sparingly and enjoy their simple beauty.

Fill the room with aromatic winter fragrances, such as sweet cinnamon and cloves, fresh citrus accords and subtle coniferous notes. There are various scented candles available in the shops, but you can also make your own aromatherapy mixtures. For example, you can put the orange peels in the oven for around half and hour and then fill with them beautiful decorative bowls, or you can bring fresh spruces branches and they will wrap your room with unforgettable smell of Christmas.
