Cozy, Fall-y Design Ideas for Bedrooms From Coco+Kelley


One of the things I absolutely love about fall is cozying up the house by swapping out pillows and piling on blankets - especially in the bedroom! I’ve already brought out my (faux!) fur blanket and am now figuring out how I’ll change up the pillows and styling to create a whole new feel in there. So, I’ve been doing a little research and have to say I’m loving a few of these super simple ideas…

1. If you’ve got a lot of neutral patterns going on, try switching up the order of your pillows. See how the left is styled different than the right in this room? It gives a bit of a bohemian feel to the bed! And, even if you don’t have a patterned headboard, you can make one by draping patterned cloths over the top of your current one - if it’s the right shape! It adds some great depth and personality.

2. For those who like a casual feel, but still need some structure, this option is perfect. Pick a palette and choose three different pillows in those hues to top off your bedding. A totally foolproof way to add color and pattern without having to stress about it too much! This is how I like to do my bed and my sofa - working in threes makes it more dynamic! And if you’re keeping the rest of the bedding white, opt for something that has texture - see how much it makes a difference?

3. Another way to work in threes is to add in that third euro sham to make the bed feel super full and cozy when it’s all made up. It adds something to that traditional style, don’t you think? I love doing this because sometimes there’s an awkward gap between pillows unless you push them all together in the center of the bed. Unless of course that’s the look you’re going for. In which case…

4. … You should try this! Make that gap crisp, clean and purposeful, and give it a little twist by turning the pillows on their edge! Fun, right? And again - so easy!! So grab some new pillows and start playing with your new bedding style for winter!
