6 incredible bedroom accessories you can have delivered right now

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, the place you go to to get away from it all. Designing a restful, serene space is about incorporating more than just the basics. It is creating an oasis with accessories that bring warmth, comfort, and style. Here are our picks to take yours from simply a place to sleep to a destination in itself.


Bedrooms should not just have one solitary light. There should be multiple sources that all have different functions. The main source provides what is known as ambient light, task lighting is used for specific uses such as reading, and the accent lights give the room more personality. This deep blue Origami Table Lamp from Crate and Barrel has a unique design that mimics folded paper. Its crisp white shade offsets the rich sapphire hue of its base.

Rugs bring more visual interest to any room. Not only are they another way to tie together other design elements, but they also offer softness and warmth underfoot. Have carpets already? Area rugs can be layered on top and will establish designated zones such as a sleeping or a sitting area. This West Elm Souk Wool Rug is handwoven from one hundred percent wool. It comes in two colors, but more options are available if you have it made-to-order.

A cozy throw

Creating the perfect bed is all about layering. You may have outfitted yours with stylish bedding, but a soft throw blanket at the foot of the bed will add an extra layer of texture. Wrap it around your shoulders when sitting in bed watching television or curling up with a book in a reading chair. This Cozy Pom Pom Throw from Pottery Barn offers super soft, cozy comfort, and it is available in six colors.


No room is complete without some visual inspiration. In the bedroom, the art you select should convey tranquility and relaxation. These two Bauhaus-inspired Victoria Borges prints from World Market feature soft, semi-transparent colors that meld together. The artist, Victoria Borges, takes her inspiration from nature and impressionism.

Throw pillows

Every cozy space should have an accent pillow. Layered on a bed or seating area, they marry the other elements together. The key is to vary the sizes and shapes and mix textures and fabrics. The Navin Print Pillow Cover gets its inspiration from antique rugs with muted, aged colors that bring the perfect mix of worldly and boho to your space.

Pottery Barn’s Faux Sheepskin Pillow Covers have the feel of genuine sheepskin and adds a plush, inviting touch to any bed. Their warm white color is easy to pair with bedding and is machine washable.

You’ll absolutely want to steal these cozy boho bedroom ideas
boho inspired bedroom


Boho chic has been around for decades. It first appeared in the late 1960s and '70s, when the idea of "peace and love" made its way into the home's interior via earthy tones, natural elements, and an "anything goes" mentality when it came to decor. Boho-inspired looks include a lot of vintage pieces, pictures from travels abroad, and an inviting, lived-in look that can make a space feel cozy and warm. Nowhere is this more important than in a bedroom — a space where you want to relax and unwind at the end of a long day.

These are the pillows you absolutely need if you have neck or back pain

Neck and back pain can arise from a fall, a car accident, arthritis, bad posture, or spending the bulk of your day at a computer. You may also wake up with a stiff neck or a sore back because your pillow isn’t doing a good job of supporting your head and spine in the proper alignment. Even if your pillow isn’t the source of your neck or back pain, sleeping with the wrong pillow may be making matters worse.
If your pillow is flat or lumpy or you keep adjusting it to get comfortable, if you wake up during the night or wake up in pain most mornings, your pillow is probably not providing the support you need. Replacing your pillow is a simple change that may significantly improve your sleep and quality of life.

Characteristics to consider when shopping for a pillow
One important factor is a pillow’s loft, or the angle it holds your head at relative to your spine. If your pillow is too high or too low, your neck will be positioned at an awkward angle while you’re sleeping, and it will have to compensate for the lack of support from the pillow. That can cause you to wake up in pain.
A pillow should contour to support your neck and reduce pressure points. Cervical pillows conform to the neck to provide the necessary support.
The firmness of the pillow is another critical factor. It needs to be firm enough to provide adequate support, but not so firm that it causes pressure points. The firmness that’s right for you will depend on your head size and preferred sleeping position, as well as the height of the pillow and the firmness of your mattress.

Each year, new trends emerge in interior design. And when it comes to flooring, homeowners are shaking up the way they utilize one of the most vital aspects of the home. Whether you prefer minimalist-inspired modern styles or love raw and authentic wooden textures, 2022 is the year of variety for wooden floors. So, if you’re looking to spruce up your outdated flooring or want to add more warmth and excitement to your home, then we have seven incredible new wood flooring trends that you need to know.
Bleached wood adds subtlety
One of the most beloved trends this year is the use of bleached wood in the home. Bleached wood creates a sense of subtlety by introducing natural wood tones without appearing too loud or bold in your home’s design. This is achieved by lightly bleaching the wood to create a look that feels whiter and brighter than ordinary hardwood flooring.

For homeowners who prefer Scandinavian-styled homes, minimalist aesthetics, or modern touches, bleached wood flooring could be just what you need. To style this flooring, keep it in rooms that need a refined finish. Areas in the home with minimal natural lighting may also benefit from this lighter flooring option as it will help to open up the space.
