From time to time, Reverie collaborates with its partners to bring you special content. This month, Raymour & Flanigan is bringing you some tips on how to add a warm glow to your bedroom this fall.
Changing leaves and shorter days mean it’s time to pull out the scarves and turn on the heat. With fall upon us, you may want to warm up your bedroom to make it a cozy and relaxing retreat as the weather turns. While time and costs may make you cautious about redecorating, bringing fall into the bedroom doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming. With the right accent pieces, lighting and finishes, you can easily create a fall paradise in your own bedroom.
To help you prepare your bedroom for days filled with piles of leaves, toasty apple cider and the beautiful autumn scenery, Raymour & Flanigan is sharing some tips on furniture, fabrics and decorations that will create feelings of fall.
1. Begin with the Bed
The heart of your bedroom is a great place to start the redecoration process. An easy way to bring warmth to your room is by adding a new bed set or comforter in a fall hue, such as a deep red or brown. Another common addition for autumn is adding a plaid throw to the end of the bed for an extra layer on those chilly fall nights. Depending on the setup of your room, you may want to shift your bed’s location to get more sun in the morning.
The changing of the seasons is also a good time to consider a bigger change in your bedroom: the bed itself. If you’ve been waking up with aches and pains, it may be time for a new mattress to help you get a more restful sleep. Consider replacing your current bed with an adjustable power base that provides a range of customization and comfort options including massage. Raymour & Flanigan carries a wide range of Reverie power beds.
2. Add a Pop of Color
Pillows are a great way to bring fall hues into your bedroom because they add color without overwhelming the space. Look for deeper color tones like burgundy or burnt orange to bring a seasonal complement to your bedroom set. These richer colors will add warmth and coziness to the space and spruce up sheets in any shade. Create interest by contrasting earth tones with brighter shades like gold and orange, or by experimenting with new patterns and textures. Seasonal throw pillows can help create a fall palette and help make your bed even more inviting as you settle in for the night.
3. Complement Your Bed with the Right End Tables
Small upgrades or furniture swaps can go a long way in creating a seasonal feel in your bedroom. Bedside tables are the companion to your bed and can be the perfect counterpart to your new mattress or adjustable base. As autumn approaches, consider bringing in bedside tables with darker finishes. Rich shades like espresso and chocolate pair well with sleek, modern pieces while still maintaining a feeling of coziness. Natural wood finishes and antique accents create a more casual outdoorsy feel and can offer the perfect contrast to your fall bed set.
4. Create the Perfect Mood Lighting
What goes on your bedside tables can be just as important to fall decorating as the tables themselves. Whether you decide to upgrade your bedside tables or refinish your current pieces, the right lamps and lighting fixtures can help bring it all to life with a warm autumn glow. For bedside lighting, opt for pearlescent bulbs that offer warm white light. These provide plenty of light for bedtime reading while limiting bright light that can interrupt your sleep.
Lamps and other lighting fixtures can also serve as staples of your fall decor. Think about choosing bedside lamps that incorporate earthy tones and other natural accents for a cozy fall feel. Lamps with a minimal wooden base add a casual, airy atmosphere, and create interest without overwhelming your bedside tables and other furniture.
5. Add Extra Flair
If you’re still looking for ideas to bring fall into your room, additional bedside decoration and room decor is always an option. If your room has hardwood floors, consider adding a rug to make the room cozier and cut out the cold floor in the morning. Opt for autumn hues and warm colors that complement your bedroom set.
Try swapping out your current wall decorations with fall-themed frames and adding prints and photos that incorporate fall landscapes or colors. Colored glass vases and shabby chic candle holders can also give your end tables or dresser just the right touch. Finish off your fall bedroom with a scented candle or two in scents like spiced apple cider or pumpkin pie to add that extra hint of fall to the air!
While fall is a time of cooler temps and preparing for winter, having a snug and comfortable bedroom to escape to is a great way to get you ready for the colder days ahead. We hope these tips help you warm up your bedroom and prepare for the fall season!
