Cocoon or bubble, nest or hideaway, the bedroom has always been a source of serenity and comfort. If ever a room needed – and deserved – an additional layer of coziness in today’s world, it’s the bedroom. Dial up the warm, cozy factor by mixing soft, tactile textures with materials that look good and help keep you healthy too.

And don’t forget to add flowers by the bed. Independent studies prove that even a single flower can help naturally reduce stress and moderate your mood. Your bedroom is calling. Take our tips to making it a natural refuge.
