Luxury in a Cozy Bedroom

One of the greatest luxuries one can give themselves in the home is a cozy bedroom.  And more specifically, a cozy bed.  Now, I am a lover of bright textiles through-out the home, but there is something soothing about neutral linens for the bedroom. Neutrals allows for more variation in texture, and work well for winter or summer nights. To really treat oneself, the Belgium linen line from West Elm is divine. Both soft and warm, you'll be tempted to bring the duvet into the living room.  Another option is the rippled striped duvet and sheet-set from Anthropologie. Layering is important in winter months, and throw blankets are here to help. One of the more versatile options are Caroline Z Hurley Throws. Oh the glory of the simple design and luxe fabrics.  Regardless of size, a cozy warm bed is a treat one should give themselves to begin and end the day. 

Lounging About

Cold weather and an abundance of holiday food and drinks makes it hard to get out of bed early during the week, let alone the weekend. I have compiled an eclectic mix of bedrooms that reenforce the art of lounging about, cuddling, and most of all staying cozy. Some of these bedrooms act as a backdrop to its surrounding architecture, while others showcase covet-worthy bedding and textiles, or how to incorporate dark walls perfectly. Now if only brunch could be delivered and served right to ones bedroom.
