Can you feel the cool weather approaching? Despite the blistering summer, fall is on its way, which is great news for lovers of pumpkin spice lattes and people who love to look at the leaves turning vibrant colors. If sweltering heat keeps you cooped up indoors until the sun goes down, this is the season you come alive. It’s also a great opportunity to redecorate your home and add some cozy new pieces to your bedroom to keep you feeling warm as the nights cool down.
For those of you who are true autumn-lovers, try using fall colors in your bedroom. There are plenty of ways you can bring the season into your room.
Fall colors include red, orange, yellow, green, beige, and brown. They’re ideal for creating a cozy feeling and pair easily with wood furniture. They’re also energizing colors, especially red, orange, and yellow, which can energize you in the morning when you’re struggling to get out of bed. Get them in subdued tones and on vintage furniture or quilts to create a comfortable fall-cabin vibe. In the quieter tones that look like falling autumn leaves, red and orange won’t feel overpowering, but charming and relaxing, with just enough verve to get you going in the morning.
Start by looking for fall-inspired bedding and duvet covers. It’s easy to find new duvet covers in autumnal colors online, if you know what you’re looking for. Autumn duvet covers should be voluminous and fluffy, but not too heavy. Down is always a good fill for any kind of duvet as it’s both warm and breathable, unless you suffer from allergies. Then there’s fill power, a measure of how much space an ounce of down takes up. Higher fill powers mean a fluffier, loftier duvet. For summer duvet covers, look for fill powers under 400, while winter duvet covers range from above 600. The ideal fill power for a fall duvet cover is between 400 and 600t depending on how you feel comfortable when you sleep. Fill power can make a big difference in the quality of your night’s rest.
Your duvet covers will set the central theme of your bedroom. From there, you can look for curtains, rugs, pillows, and quilts that will complete the autumnal feeling you’ve been going for. Warm, thick curtains can help you manage the temperature in your bedroom as well. Keep them open during the day to let the sunlight pour in, then close them to insulate the warmth on those cold nights that come at the end of fall.
Fall-themed pillows will really complete the autumnal feel of your bedroom. Add to your bedroom with pillows featuring autumn leaves, tree branches, forests, and harvest scenes. It’s incredible the kinds of designs you can get on pillows these days, including detailed photographs.
If you’re really feeling ambitious, painting fall leaves wall art on the wall over your bed will make you feel like you’re falling asleep in an enchanted forest. It’s the perfect design for true autumn lovers.
Decorate your bedroom the way you always dreamed. Start with duvet covers and let your imagination run wild from there.
