Trendy animal skins for a pleasant atmosphere
From the bed to the floor, adorn your room with animal skins or faux fur. They will make you want to laze whole weekends under the duvet. To dress a floor or a bed, it’s a neat idea!

Candles for a Zen atmosphere

Soft colors for a delicate atmosphere
Beige, taupe, pale pink are the colors that are part of the decoration of a cocooning room. They easily soften a room and their neutrality makes the atmosphere soothing. You can use them in monochrome. That is to say choose one and decline it in all tones.
Immaculate white for a 100% wadded room
For a vaporous design and the impression of sleeping on a soft cloud, opt for white in total look. Create a cocoon with a duvet cover and white cushions. Wadding, cotton, white is everywhere within reach. Welcome to your haven of peace.
Soft light for a comforting room
Make your cocoon a refined, nicely lit room. The ideal is to opt for variable brightness lighting, so as to create a more or less cozy atmosphere. Also choose discreet string lights and a light to install above your bed. Of course, nothing too dazzling. If necessary, rather than a single light source illuminating your room too brightly, multiply the light sources (small lamps, wall lights, etc.). By multiplying the sources of light in this way, you will almost have the feeling of having a fireplace in your room! And what could be better than snuggling up by the fire when it’s gray outside?
Soft cushions for a cozy bedroom
What could be more welcoming than a room with a multitude of cushions, bed throws and throws? Vary the patterns, colors, materials so as to give texture to your decoration. For flawlessness, choose natural and pastel colors. So dare the color in the cocooning room as long as it is like the atmosphere, as soft as you want!
Numerous plaids for a cozy bedroom
Again, vary the colors, materials, prints. You can have it everywhere: on a fireplace, on an armchair, on your bed, etc. Throws promise to warm up your long winter evenings. What could be better than a large knitted woolen plaid? Beyond the decorative and trendy aspect, this accessory has the merit of making you want to hide under it to warm up when it’s cold outside. The important thing for a cocooning decoration is to choose plaids in a material that is both warm and enveloping. As long as your plaid is placed on a sofa covered with the most welcoming velvet, you will want to become more and more homey.
A welcoming floor for a comfortable bedroom
Think of rugs, but think bigger by thinking about the floor covering in the room. A seagrass placed on the ground can quite warm a room.

Both excellent thermal and acoustic insulator, it exists in a large number of colors. And offers the most pleasant feeling every time you step on it!
