With a little mama magic, you can create a comfy and cosy sanctuary this winter that is just for you. Perfect for snuggling up under the blankets with the latest issue of Mama Disrupt and a cup of tea (or a glass of red depending on the day you’ve had!)
Bring back the HEAT with these 8 styling hacks for your boudoir…
1 // LAYERS
Instead of cranking up the temp on your heater, warm up your bedroom by layering textures and fabrics that will help trap in the heat. Adding a thick wool or faux fur throw to your bed will instantly create an inviting space, and have you feeling fancy AF.
2 // COLOUR SCHEME
Switch up your bedroom colour scheme by adding cushions, accessories, vessels and candles in rich colours and deep tones of plum, magenta and mustard.
3 // CANDLES
Bring your stress levels down a notch with a cluster of candles, providing much needed warmth and light. Grab a large tray and add a few different sized candles with winter scents such as vanilla and caramel to set the ultimate romantic (read: baby making) mood.
4 // RUGS
If you have wooden floorboards or tiles in your bedroom, create instant warmth with a simple plush shag or sisal rug to keep your tootsies warm and comfy – which really comes in handy for those late night feeds!
5 // PLANTS
Breathe fresh new life into your bedroom by adding a vase of fresh flowers or small potted plant on your bedside table or on top of your dresser. Not only will it bring your decor to Insta-worthy new heights, fresh plants also help filtrate the air.
6 // LIGHTS
With less natural light in the winter months, incorporate floor and table lights to help brighten up your bedroom. Pro tip: Swap out cool bulbs for warmer ones to create a more relaxed and comfortable environment.
7 // MIRRORS
If you’re pushed for space, use a large-scale mirror to instantly make your bedroom feel bigger. A floor length standing mirror or large wall mirror hung vertically can brighten up the space while also bringing warmth and light to your bedroom.
8 // CURTAINS
Thick floor-length curtains create instant insulation and trap in the heat to keep your bedroom looking and feeling warm and cosy all day long.
