At Compass + Star, we are on a mission to make the world a relaxing, more comfortable place one mattress at a time. And the holidays are an absolutely perfect time for cozy comfort. We’ve put together a few tips and tricks for decorating your home (and specifically your bedroom) this holiday season to ensure the most wonderful time of the year is also the most relaxing.
1 - Forget traditional retail stores and try antiquing!
Everyone thinks that holiday decor has to come from a big box store and be shiny and new, but often the best items come from second hand and antique shops. Not only are these pieces often better made with more character, they lend a shabby chic look that feels downright warm.
2 - Put holiday lights in your bedroom.
You probably wouldn’t think of it, but why does the celebrating have to stop at the tree in the living room? Put a strand above your bed or around a door frame, even on a dresser to get that warm glow just before bed. We recommend a soft white or mellow blue to get you in the mood to snooze.
3 - Try holiday throw pillows.
A newer tradition that we’ve noticed pop up is holiday-themed throw pillows for your sofa or bed. Ranging from reindeer to menorahs, these bring a plush element to the traditionally shelf-only decor and really make you look like a dedicated holiday enthusiast.
We put together a Cozy Holiday Pinterest board to lend some inspiration! Check it out and tell us what you think! Happy holidays from C+S!
