Curtains: How to set the cosy & right tone for Autumn in the bedroom

Summer is over and as we look outside to darker nights and darker mornings it can sometimes leave us feeling a little deflated. There’s no more sunny evening walks to look forward to or trips to the park with the kids after dinner. There is however, a reason to look forward to the arrival of Autumn. It’s the time of year we can look forward to getting cosy and snuggly, both outside with scarves and boots and inside with our home interior and soft furnishings.

In this post in particular I’m looking at ideas of how to make the bedroom a cosy and reclusive place to go when the nights get dark and cold.

  1. Logan Eyelet Thermal Blackout Curtains in silver | Yorkshire Linen Company   Blackout curtains will assist with a quiet and calm bedroom giving extra darkness when it’s needed. Not only do they keep out the light but they will keep out any drafts and noise resulting in an extra cosy feel this Autumn. Blackout curtain linings are also a must have for a calm bedroom on Yorkshire Linen web store.
  2. Glamour Flock Lace Eyelet Curtains | Yorkshire Linen Company   In beautiful mocha matte satin, these stunning curtains will give your bedroom a luxurious and elegant feel, making it the perfect place to unwind of an evening. There is also a matching duvet cover, bedspread and boudoir cushion available to complete the look.
  3. Autumn Night Scented Candle | Yankee Candle   With it’s ‘brisk earthiness and dreamy interludes of lavender and woodland notes’, the smell of Autumn will most certainly fill your room as you relax.
  4. Navy/White Stripe Nightshirt | Next   Not quite cold enough to bundle yourself into pyjamas but warm enough to take off the chill as those cooler nights creep in. This gorgeous nightshirt will do the job just nicely.
  5. Warwick Jacquard Silver Duvet Cover Set | Yorkshire Linen Company   In keeping with the silver theme, this classic design would be perfect in either a traditional or modern setting. Matching bedspread and cushions are also available.
  6. Husky Faux Fur Throw and Cushion | Very   For those chillier Autumn nights, curl up with a good book whilst surrounded by the extreme softness of these stunning faux fur cushions and throws. Perfect.
  7. Premier Touch of Down Duvet | Yorkshire Linen Company   Perfect for allergy sufferers who prefer the feel of a feather duvet. Anti-allergy hollowfibre is perfect for everyone. Easily machine washable too.
  8. LED ‘LOVE’ Lit Sign | John Lewis   Finally, add the perfect dim lit glow to your Autumnal room setting with this striking table lamp. Paired with the glow from your candle, you will have the perfect setting for the cosiest of evenings.

    Oooh lovely, I have just put my curtains up in my bedroom, they are so thick and gorgeous and block out the street light “orange” that shines through my venetian blinds. I love my candles & throws too… lovely ideas for the home #fortheloveofBLOG

    I’m looking to redo our bedroom at the moment. I’m looking at deep reds and browns. I love these duvet covers though so will have to have a look.

    Great post! I love the idea of changing some of the furnishings in our rooms to match the different seasons that come and go. We’re huge fans of grey and have quite a lot of it in our house, so lots of great inspo here! Thanks for sharing it on #MarvMondays. Emily

    I really love the curtains and lighting! The nighty looks comfy too! I’m a fan of Autumn, it puts me in a settled mood and I often feel like writing and reading more – loving cosy nights in. I love the colours of silver, grey at the moment. I’ve just decorated my bedroom teal and light grey. and plan on doing the lounge in grey – contrasting dark and light grey and then a feature wall of white brickwork.

    Thanks for the inspiration and for linking up to #AnythingGoes

      That sounds gorgeous!! I have one wall of textured grey wallpaper with tiny silver flecks and I love it. Super cosy. I want to do my bedroom one wall painted grey and the rest a lighter grey/off white. I have a little bit of a grey and silver obsession! Lucky for my hubby it’s not pink!! 🙂
