In autumn, we enter the territory of warmth, and here the bedroom has to be king. Let’s prepare our fluffiest blankets at the foot of the bed and be inspired by nature’s color palette.
BRING THE FALL COLORS TO BED
Bedding has enormous transformative power on the look of a bedroom. So there is nothing easier to give an autumnal and more welcoming air to the room than opting for bedding in shades of brown, orange, reddish, mustard or even golden sparkles. Take advantage, too, to change the covers of the cushions and quadrants.
DRESS THE BED WITH PLAIDS AND BLANKETS
A visually soft bed is always more appealing, especially when temperatures begin to drop. So don’t be afraid to be baroque when it comes to dressing the bed when it comes to textiles: overlap plaids, blankets and mid-season quilts.
SWAP OUT YOUR SUMMER BEDDING FOR A WARMER ONE
Now is the time to put away the cool summer covers and sheets and start pulling out the mid-season cotton or even jersey-textured ones, which are soft and warmer than linen without reaching the warm textures of flannel.
DO NOT MISS A WOOL BLANKET AT THE FOOT OF THE BED
It is seeing a wool blanket and immediately raising the temperature of the room. And it is that wool carries the message “cosy”. Warm and comfortable to the touch, wool blankets are ideal to protect us from the cold. The best are those that are made of pure wool, without mixing other fibres.
FURRY TEXTILES TO PREPARE FOR THE ARRIVAL OF WINTER
A fur blanket will give a very cozy and warm touch to the bedroom. In addition, it can be very practical to cover an armchair made of fibres or fresh upholstery, for example. And as a plus, furry accessories are still in trend!
GET INSPIRED BY NATURE
Sometimes it is as simple as looking out the window. Trees and leaves turn green to embrace yellows, oranges, and browns. For a smoother transition from summer to fall, ocher is the ideal color.
LOOKING FOR THE WARMTH OF WOOD
Going from summer to fall also means leaving cool to look warm. And in that, the wood never fails. In this case, fabrics have been sought that reinforce the same colors. All warmth!
BACK TO THE WOODS
The untreated or unbrushed wood sends us directly with its touch and smell to the forest. If it cannot be the headboard, any piece, no matter how small, will invite you to remember it.
CARPETS: GOODBYE TO FIBER
The washed tones of the kilims go from pearls with the autumn colors. If you don’t want to remove the sisal ones, you can always place them on top.
PROTECT THE FOOTPRINT WITH A WOOL RUG
Carpets are a must to keep the bedroom warm. Although those made of fibres are timeless, in autumn you want the comfort and well-being that a warmer fabric such as wool or even cotton offers the barefoot. In addition, visually the bedroom will look warmer and will be much more comfortable.
COUNTDOWN TO THE “FIREPLACE MOMENT”
If you are one of the lucky ones who have a fireplace in the bedroom, what are you waiting for to get it ready? Perhaps the temperatures are not yet to turn on the heat, but snuggling up in bed listening to the crackle of the fire and watching the color show of the flames, is the best anti-stress method.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH CANDLES
Candles are great creators of the atmosphere. And although they do not know the season, it is during the coldest months of the year when seeing the tinkling of its multicoloured flame is especially comforting. In addition, they create more intimate atmospheres, so they are ideal in the bedroom. Choose them with aromas that remind you of autumn – eucalyptus, cinnamon, red fruits, figs, wood. and the transformation will be complete.
HAVE A BASKET FOR CUSHIONS AND PLAIDS ON HAND
If you are one of those who fill the bed with cushions, pillows, blankets and plaids, yes or yes you will need a basket in which to leave all the textiles that you do not need at bedtime. You can also use it as a decorative element.
WASHED ORANGES WORK TOO
Linens are always easy to combine because they end up giving these interesting rustic and worn tones. Notice how all of them are repeated in the mural.
FROM BEIGE TO EARTH
A classic range that has worked for a lifetime. Natural fibre accessories (if they are not very clear) are perfectly in the game.
WHITE IS FOR FALL TOO!
Yes, white is not a forbidden color in fall. Linked above all to the coolness of summer or a mountain environment due to its link to snow, don’t be afraid to introduce white into your bedding this fall. It is a colour that conveys cleanliness and peace, which is what we ask of a bed! One tip: go for off-white whites, which are warmer.
THE REDDISH ONES COMPLETE THE SCALE OF AUTUMN TONES
Following the same path as the leaves that go from yellow, ocher, orange, brown and red. These reddish tones are always close to brown (garnets, tiles, caldera …) but they retain their ability to brighten you up.
GREEN AND YELLOW? YES, THEY COMBINE
If we know how to find the point, of course. The mustards, ochres and old gold are not so far from some green on the chromatic scale. This wall color can be very cool in summer with white, on the other hand, with these colors, it warms up.
WHITE AND BLUE ARE ALSO AUTUMNAL
This classic summery combo can survive when the cold sets in. Give the textures in the fabrics and look for greys that accompany the blue.
MAGIC TOUCHES OF AUTUMN
We will tire of worshipping, and remembering, the transformative power of accessories. Some orange flowers, some cushions, a vase. and autumn is here in your bedroom.
COMBINING PATTERNS WE INCREASE THE WARMTH
The color contrasts are always fresher and more impressive, they are more summer. Now it’s time to work on the subtlety of the pattern combinations within the same range.
THE USE AND ABUSE OF TEXTURES
With just a cushion and a blanket or plaid, you can put a white bed in autumn mode. Knitted blankets are the ideal resource before launching into the most winter wool.
INCORPORATES UPHOLSTERED PIECES
They heat up the decoration. Changing the typical rope or rattan pouf for an upholstered one does not require a lot of budget or space, and it will be noticed.
PINK + GRAY THE COUPLE CONTINUES
The grey and pink is a combination that has been exploited much in recent years, in all seasons. The darker the grey, the more wintry the result. And if we add a checkered pattern, we complete it with a rustic touch.
THE REFLECTIONS OF VELVET
The Velvet is the perfect fabric because it gives warmth, shelter, light. In excess, it can be heavy, but it does bring life to the dark blues and reds that lift the brown base of this bedroom.
