Autumn demands of our bedroom different things than that of other months. It feels, notably, like a month of transition between summer and winter, when the temperature can still vary between cold and mild, when the rain beats down or a soft breeze is welcomed by the curtain. While being practical is a must, in our time, it doesn’t need to be done at the expensive of taste and style. Here are bedroom decor trends for 2022.
Warm toned walls
Fall is all about feeling cozy. The temperature’s dropping, and we finally don’t have an aversion to touch that is best demonstrated in the bedroom. So, it’s time to embrace any warm colors in your bedroom. At least if you can’t physically feel warm, you can trick your brain into thinking you are warm with warm tones.
You don’t have to stick to the reds and oranges of autumn leaves either. Deep rich browns, stone grays, forest greens and more can all be on the warm spectrum. It’s more about the undertone than the color itself. If you can hold a lamp to your mahogany wall and the light looks orange, you’ve got a warm undertone. You can feel the warmth even in these more stone beiges going around.
New bedroom sets
And these warm tones don’t have to be exclusive to the walls. If you are in a rented apartment, you might have lost faith for a moment, but there is plenty of opportunity to inject warmth into your home with the décor. The bed is a great place to start. If you can’t replace your bed with a warm-tone upholstered set, you can at least replace the duvet with something other than gray or white. If you do like the idea of an upholstered bed set that matches your décor, you can find stylish and affordable bedroom sets here, many of which come in various colors.
Throws thrown everywhere
But the bedspread isn’t the only place where you can inject some color and warmth. Throws are also a good way to physically keep the heat in and make your home look cozy. Play around with textures when you’re thinking about your room.
Get heavy curtains to keep the heat out but consider supplementing them with mesh curtains or some blinds. If you have an upholstered chair or ottoman in the room, warm them up with a throw or a knitted blanket. Play with textures in your cushions and pillows to make a room that feels warm to the touch.
The big light should never go on unless you’re doing a project or in the room for two seconds to grab something. You need lamps to create an atmosphere, but they’re especially good at warming up the room in the middle of winter. The room will feel warmer, but it will also feel less stark and clinical. Play around with different sizes and wattages of lamps to create light in different levels where you need them.
Paneling is all in right now, to the point that tutorials from influencers are going viral. Anything that involved a jigsaw or a trip to the wood end of the hardware store used to be off-limits to DIY influencers. But this is going so far that people are doing them at home.
And who can blame them? They add a little something to a bare room and add a little bit of luxury and sophistication to a room. It does appear like something you would pay out the nose for when it’s actually more of a cut-and-screw job. You can handle that!
