Autumn bedroom makeover on a budget

Autumn bedroom makeover on a budget

It's definitely getting chillier now isn't it! The kids are all back to school and it won't be long before those nights are drawing in and we are all thinking about hibernating for the winter. It's nice to create a cosy vibe in the home to really appreciate those nights in. 

Why not make a few simple changes to the bedroom without breaking the bank to really amp up the hygge feel. Here are our top tips:

 1. Change the colour palette

Think about introducing some autumnal shades, your traditional burnt oranges, browns and reds. Mahogany red is set to be huge this season but don't always go with the trends, use what works in your home. A deep brown can really set off the brighter colours in the room, check out Kat from @life_at_number_63 autumn bedroom makeover for inspo. Those floating beside tables look pretty good too! Don't be afraid to paint a wall for a dramatic and cheap change. You can always change it back if you don't like it!

2. Add cushions and throws

Layer up! Where as we might have barely needed a sheet during the 2018 heatwave, now is the time to start layering up those blankets and cushions. By swapping out your less expensive homeware items, you can make a real change for winter without breaking the bank. Think different textures like wool and faux fur for interest. You don't always need to buy new, make like an instagram home blogger and just swap items around that you might have had in another room. 

3. Mix up the lighting


Now is the time to make sure you have some gorgeous low lighting to create a vibey members club feel. Vary it so that you have some specific reading lights as well as lots of candles (don't forget to blow them out before bed!). We love our pyramid lamp which also brings the warmth of natural wood into the room.

4. Ambience


Think about all the senses when creating your autumn hideaway. Lighting and texture and covered off so next look at how we can create a great smelling room! Our current favourite for gorgeous room scent is Far candles, they look amazing and smell divine. The amber coloured glass is just spot on for bringing some autumn colours in and they have some very autumn/winter feels like plum and patchouli

5. Natural Foliage

Botanticals so popular at the moment, faux and real. Why not mix it up with some autumnal branches or even wheat sheafs for a very harvest festival vibe :) We found this fab DIY tutorial on how to make an autumn flower arrangement, love it
