3 Ways to Decorate Your Bedroom for Winter

When the weather is cold and dull, looking outside and seeing the miserable winter landscape beyond your window can be nothing short of uninspiring. However, just because the great British winter weather is grey, it doesn't mean that winter weather the world over has to follow suit.

Instead of complaining about the weather this winter, why not try something a little different and bring the spirit of the season into your home?

Whether you are looking for some interior design inspiration or simply searching for the perfect way to update your home, your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. Apart from the fact that you will spend a good chunk of your time sleeping, the bedroom is also a great place to relax and unwind after a long and tiring day. So, understandably, it makes sense that you will want your bedroom to look good, too.

If you do want inspiration, here are some unique ways to bring the spirit of winter into your bedroom - leaving the cold weather at the door!

Destination Inspiration

Winter is a different experience all over the world, from the snowy northern countries to the warmer southern regions. Instead of simply plumping for something you're used to, why not explore the world from the comfort of your bed and use a winter destination to inspire your interior design? Personally, the idea of a bedroom decorated in the style of a traditional Swiss chalet simply couldn't be more appealing when the weather is cold!

Classic or Contemporary

One main choice you need to make surrounds the style of design you want to include. While traditional design is likely to feel more homely and comforting, with plenty of wood, a warm colour palette and colourful rugs and throws, some people prefer to maintain a modern approach to design. A winter-inspired contemporary look has the ability to combine sleek, polished design with picture-perfect winter weather - a truly winning combination. Opt for glass-topped tables and plenty of mirrors to make the room seem bigger and reflect the weather outside - perfect for those lovely snowy days.

The Devil is in the Detail

If you are on a budget (and who isn't, after the extravagance of the festive season!) or are happy with the overall look of your bedroom, then changing a few small details is a great way to switch things up a little. Rather than going for a full-on bedroom makeover, consider investing in some new curtains, a few choice cushions or perhaps a cosy rug to warm your feet on those chilly winter mornings. A thicker duvet or quilt can also be a sensible seasonal addition, or perhaps some winter-themed bedding could be a nice way to pay homage to the season. Julian Charles does some lovely bedding perfect for winter - perhaps it's time to try a new colour or pattern?

No matter the details of your personal style, changing your decor according to the seasons is a great way to keep things fresh and ensure your home remains in keeping with the weather outside. Even just a few small changes can go a long way to keeping your bedroom environment interesting and engaging, so why not splash out and consider a bedroom update this winter?
