How to Make Your Bedroom Cozy for Winter


faux fur pouf // faux fur blanket // terry robe // oil diffuser

I loveeee making my bedroom feel cozy and soft during the wintertime! Here are my best tips for transforming your bedroom into a cozy haven:

1. Add soft touches
I love faux fur, especially in the Winter, and Nordstrom has an entire “Cuddle Up” collection with some great faux fur pieces for the bedroom. I picked up this faux fur pouf and faux fur blanket, both in a blush pink color, to add some soft and feminine touches to the room. They’re both soo soft! Also, my new bed is a lot taller than my previous one, so Winnie now uses the big faux fur pouf as a launching pad to get up on the bed. It’s pretty adorable! I’ll try to catch it on Snapchat the next time she does it πŸ™‚ 
2. Hang string lights
One of my favorite things to do to make a bedroom feel really cozy is to add string lights! You can hang them up on the wall around the perimeter of the room, or get creative and add them to your headboard with a little clear tape. There’s something so cheerful about these little lights – even when it gets dark early, your bedroom is still twinkly and cozy. 
3. Pick a scent
I bought this oil diffuser from Nordstrom in the lavender/thyme scent and it smells SOOO good! I like oil diffusers because they emit a subtle scent at all times, unlike a candle which only smells good when you light it. Mine comes in eleven different scents but I really love the lavender because it’s very calming and relaxing, exactly the vibe you want in a bedroom. 
4. Invest in a soft robe & slippers
I love changing into a robe and slippers immediately when I come home – these bow slippers are made of faux fur and only $32! There’s something so comforting about taking off your work clothes or even your jeans and getting into soft, comfy clothes. 
5. Switch your light bulbs
Switch out your light bulbs to soft white or warm white light bulbs: these bulbs provide a warm, cozy feel, whereas cool white light bulbs give a room a more energetic feel and actually make it harder to fall asleep at night.

  4. I am beyond obsessed with your room! I know you and your fiance just moved in together so I was going to ask how you balance between keeping the place your style and his style. But this furniture is honestly the best balance between both that I have ever found! Please do more posts of your house:)
