Though I live in a mild climate here in Houston, shorter days and longer nights still make a cozy and snuggly bedroom in which to nest extra important at this time of year. Even a beach house can be comfy and cozy with enough pillows and extra blankets and comforters.
The thought of diving into a nest of crisp linens, under a sumptuous canopy has me ready to go back to bed, though I’m currently enjoying my morning coffee at my desk!
The key to a comfortable and cozy bedroom is in the layering of generous pillows, crisp linen sheets, fluffy down comforters, and soft throws. I’m a proponent of more is always better on a bed, because you can remove layers or pillows as needed, but once you are comfy in bed, nothing is worse than needing an extra blanket or pillow on a chilly night, and not having it close by!
Isn’t this bedroom by Tony Duquette impossibly chic? Completely over the top, but what caught my eye was the thoughtful placement of a swing arm sconce inside the over-scale canopy. Every bedroom, no matter how grand, needs a light an arm’s length from the bed so you can curl up at the end of the day with a good book.
