Everyone loves a cozy living room, but creating a cozy bedroom that makes you feel safe and warm and sheltered from the chaos of the world is one of the most important things that you can do to increase your well being and upgrade your living situation. Some spaces like attic bedrooms have a built-in coziness factor thanks to the arched ceilings and top floor location, but any bedroom can be made to feel cozier by keeping a few simple principles in mind.

So what makes a space feel cozy? The answer is partly subjective based on your personality and individual tastes, but certain elements make a room feel universally cozy—a comfy bed, soft lighting, and decor details that make it feel like home. Check out these inviting bedrooms in a range of sizes and styles for inspiration on how to create a cozy oasis that will feel like a giant hug.

    Use Warm Woods

    Cozy bedroom

    Design by Jersey Ice Cream Co / Photo by Nicole Franzen

    Interior design team Tara Mangini and Percy Bright of Jersey Ice Cream Co played up the historic charm of a 1887 Arts & Crafts home in the Catskills by embracing the warm wood paneling on walls and ceiling and hardwood floors. To add contrast and lighten things up, they chose pale cool-toned gray paint that highlights the detailing on a pair of doors flanking the bed. A cushy upholstered headboard in a cheerful blue-and-white check pattern, a large cream-colored rug with a subtle pattern, and plush bedding that includes a fluffy gray fur throw at the foot of the bed adds softness and a homey touch.

    Practice Pattern Mixing

    Cozy bedroom

    Erin Williamson Design

    Erin Williamson Design used bright wallpaper and bold pattern-on-pattern mixing to style this cozy guest room. "When mixing patterns, there are several possible strategies that I like to employ," says Williamson. "For this space, we mimicked a classic en suite look of matching fabrics and wallpaper by using several patterns that are close in color and scale—the effect is kind of dizzying and old school cool at the same time. The last layer came with the rug, which is a contrasting color and more open scale than the wallpaper and textiles. It adds visual texture while also letting the more bold patterns breathe."

    Add a Family Photo Wall

    Cozy bedroom ideas

    Most Lovely Things 

    Blogger Annie Diamond of Most Lovely Things created a warm, enveloping feeling in her bedroom by painting the walls in deep gray paint. The dark wall color adds a grounding element to the otherwise light palette that includes pale oak flooring, bed linens, and bright white paint on the ceiling as well as the window trims and doors. And she created an easily changeable gallery wall by adding three picture rail shelves and filling them with black and white framed family and travel photos. It's a personal touch that creates an instantly cozy feel.
