Bedroom Ideas So Cozy You’ll Never Want to Leave

If there’s one spot in a home that most people want to describe as ‘cozy,’ it’s the bedroom. This space is all about relaxation. You go there to unwind after a long day and (hopefully) get some really good sleep. The cozier it is, the more easily you’ll shift into that relaxing state and drift off to sleep.

But how exactly do you create a cozy bedroom? It isn’t just in the style. Any decorating style can be made cozy. What makes a room cozy are certain textures and elements paired with whatever you specifically respond to. Typically, cozy elements include faux fur, knit, luxurious bedding, plush pillows, a soft area rug, and a color palette that is easy on the eyes. Then, include some special elements that mean something to you, like artwork that brings back warm memories.

Here are some cozy bedrooms to give you some ideas and inspiration.

Home Tour: Kirsten Dunst’s Cool, Artsy Loft in SoHo

If you love New York City lofts, then Kirsten Dunst’s former home in SoHo is sure to provide you with lots of inspiration. She recently sold the 2,220 square-foot penthouse to a lucky buyer. The home features exposed brick walls, wide plank wood floors, and gorgeous views of the river through arched windows. It’s definitely a unique, special find.

The decor also has a lot of charm and character to complement the home’s gorgeous bones. While it’s unclear whether it was Kirsten’s decor or if it was staged for the market, it’s inspiring nonetheless. With antique elements and a relaxed, curated vibe, the home is the epitome of SoHo cool.

In fact, you can make it so stylish, you may not even be able to tell the difference between the interior and exterior of your home.

Hotel Tour: The Modern and Charming Hotel Panache in Paris

Hotels offer some of the most unique and interesting design inspiration in the world. Some of my favorites are overseas in Europe because of the fabulous history in the cities and architecture. I recently discovered a particularly inspiring hotel in Paris aptly called the Hotel Panache. The designer, Dorothee Meilichzon, was inspired by the neighborhood and the architecture of the building, leading her to incorporate a lot of angles in the interior.

The result is a fantastic mixture of shapes and textures that come together to create a glamorous, mid-century modern experience. It’s inspiring to see the intentional way she used geometric shapes and lines to create interest, as well as how she brilliantly mixed different textures and colors for a dramatic yet elegant result. The entire hotel is something special.

Enjoy this captivating hotel tour courtesy of Chzon.

Living Rooms That Are Beautiful in Blue

The living room is kind of like the heart of a home. It’s where everyone gathers after a long day and entertains on the weekends and holidays. Deciding on a color palette for this space is rooted in how you want to feel when you are spending time in it. For many, they want something that is relaxing and family friendly. That makes blue a perfect option for many.

Blue is one of my favorite colors to work with because it is so versatile. It’s gender-neutral and has an elegant, relaxing vibe that everyone naturally responds to. To take its versatility a step further, the hue and tone that you choose can say a lot. A deep, vibrant blue will be dramatic while a soft, subdued blue will be serene and tranquil. It’s all in the mood you want to capture.

To show the incredible range of the color, here are several blue living room ideas that are all different but beautiful in their own way.
