How to decorate your bedroom for autumn

When the colder weather sets in, our homes become our safe havens – and what room provides us more comfort than our bedroom? They’re our places to rest, relax and get a good night’s sleep during a time when evenings and mornings are darker. 

We know that in order to get a good night’s sleep, it’s important to fall in love with our bedrooms – so here are TBCo’s top tips on how to transform your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary this autumn. 

How can I make my bedroom cosy in autumn?

One trend we’re loving this season is ‘Dreamscape’. Dreamscapes are all about finding solace and comfort in the ethereal, escaping the everyday and creating an inner sanctum in your home. 

  • Add texture and tones to your bedroom
  • When it’s too cold to go outside, bring the outside in through the use of earthy tones and tactile fabrics like wool, cotton (especially for your pyjamas!) and alpaca fleece. Not only are they comforting and warm, but they’re also stylish and can give your room the lift it needs when autumn sets in. 

    A lambswool throw draped over the end of your bed can bring a pop of colour, but also be great for sleeping under when you need an extra layer at night. 

  • Get creative with your lighting
  • The big, overhead light isn’t for everyone and can be harshly contrasted against darker nights. 

    Instead, opt to light your room through smaller table and floor lamps. String or fairy lights can also create a warmer atmosphere and evoke the glow of an autumn sunset. 

    Of course, what is an autumn bedroom without the soft glow of a candle to set the mood? We recommend a lavender scent for the bedroom to help with relaxation at night, or for a morning glow, a citrus-scented candle will help you feel rejuvenated for the day ahead.

  • Swap out your cushion covers
  • It’s the little details that really bring a bedroom together, so why not swap the throw pillows on your bed out for some in an autumn colour palette? The best part about cushion covers is that they can be replaced for a new season, so invest in a set that will last you autumns to come. 

    Deep purples and oranges are classics, like our Lilac Houndstooth Cushion Cover, and what’s more autumnal than a rust colourway

    What are autumnal colours for the bedroom?

    The primary purpose of your bedroom is to help get a good night’s sleep, and your colour palette should reflect that no matter what the season. 

    Bright and bold patterns are wonderful for small decor pieces like cushions, but overall an autumn colour palette should reflect sunset and earthy tones that immerse you in warmth. 

    An earthy colour palette with deep reds, natural browns and burnt oranges never goes out of style, but you can still invite colour through blues, greens and purples.

    However you choose to decorate your bedroom for autumn, your personality should shine through!
