Your bedroom is a place where you can escape to relax and unwind at the end of a long day. It’s a space that should echo comfort and safety, almost like your own personal sanctuary. Spring, summer, fall, or winter, the bedroom should be a room full of peace and quiet. While the summer and spring months typically bring warmer temperatures, in the winter, a bedroom can feel cold, dark, and monotonous—especially when days are shorter and temperatures drop. Yet, it doesn’t have to!
By combining two trends—natural light and warm textures—your bedroom can truly be enlivened to feel cozy, warm, and joyful.

So, why is this trend so appealing? Pairing the natural beauty of daylight with the warmth of carpet, this look for winter bridges two up-and-coming trends to create one balanced style that will take your bedroom from dull to dazzling. Whether you choose to take a transitional, modern, or boho approach to your bedroom design, this trend is easily attainable and can be tailored to your personality with just a few quick updates.
Not only will you be able to use natural light to get the most out of the darkest winter days, but you’ll also appreciate the increased feeling of warmth in your bedroom when you choose carpet. Nothing beats the greeting of soft carpet underfoot when you rise out of bed on those cold winter mornings.

When it comes to getting the light and warm look in your bedroom, it’s simple to create the overall design. However, there are some elements you will need to bring the vision to life. The first thing you will need is a source of natural light, like a window. Natural light pouring in will brighten up the space quickly and efficiently, as will sliding or French doors. Lacking natural light or looking for more? That’s okay—you can still achieve this look by modifying the approach. Opt for brighter light fixtures to bring the room to life. Lighting with dimmers is an even better choice if you prefer to alter the lighting in your room depending on the time of day.
To get the most natural light, it’s best to keep furniture against full, flat walls, so that it doesn’t obstruct window views. This allows natural light to flow through the room freely. While we do recommend curtains and window treatments, the best way to take advantage of natural light is to be sure to open them during the day.

To achieve the warmth of this winter-inspired trend, carpeting is the best way to enhance that cozy feeling. The type, color, and style of carpet best suited to creating your light and bright bedroom will depend on where you want to take your design.
The types of carpet available on the market today range from plush to patterned and display a variety of features to suit every need. Stain and fade resistance, increased durability, and softness are just a few specific options available when you consider different carpeting products. That warm feeling in your bedroom is best achieved with plush, cozy carpets that increase the amount of texture in the space.
Color also plays a role in a light and warm bedroom. When paired with natural sunlight, lighter, cooler-colored carpets will brighten up your bedroom. Some examples include shades of white, gray, taupe, and beige, because they have a way of making a room feel airy. Deeper shades will offer a warmer feeling due to their hue and are a great option when there is ample natural light. Some examples of deeper shades include gray, black, navy, and brown, as well as carpet with flecks of multiple neutral shades.
Carpet style and texture can also play a role in the warmth and overall feeling of your bedroom. Going with a patterned carpet will add a touch of trendy design flair that you might not know you needed! On the other hand, a simple carpet will allow you to get creative with other design choices like throw pillows, accent chairs, and other elements.
No matter what your style is, embracing this trend to the fullest will make your bedroom feel like the delightful escape you’ve always dreamed of.

These two trends stand flawlessly on their own, and together, they are even more powerful. By uniting these trends, your bedroom will feel composed in the winter and throughout the year. These trends will stand the test of time as design styles change and evolve, allowing you to be at peace with your design choices. While bedrooms often consist of the same elements—a bed, nightstands, a dresser, and linens—these pieces are easily adaptable and can be modified as you wish once you nail the amount of light you want and create that cozy, comforting space with carpet.
Not only are these design features long-lasting, but they’re also timeless. Consider this—natural light has been a feature of homes for many years, and it isn’t going away anytime soon. With the right amount of natural light, you can easily soften the space with window treatments—and that’s why this trend can endure the changing times to help you create a bedroom that is both beautifully bright and warm.
