Winter is fast approaching and with it an overwhelming desire to make the home more cosy. I get it. The winter duvet is going to come out of summer hibernation and extra blankets will be piled on just to make us all feel better about the darker months ahead. It’s a good time too, to re-stock the linen cupboard with new bedding. I don’t know about you but sometimes just small changes around the house makes it feel more homely for me, and new darker bedding comes out as soon as September has passed. But before you rush out and buy the first autumnal bedding set you see, it might be a good idea to just check what your bedroom personality is.
The Traditionally Romantic Type
You like good old fashioned romance. And anything with a sense of history. So your bedroom style takes it’s cue from old floral oil paintings and the colours of a midnight garden. You are happiest when surrounded by things you have hunted down in second-hand shops, and your biggest treat is fresh flowers. Especially if someone else has bought them for you.

Seurat print cushion £15. Midnight print cushion £15. Floral watercolour cushion £15. Charcoal knitted throw £49. Grey moss knit throw £80.
The ‘My Heart’s in the Country’ Type
You are happiest away from crowds and surrounded by nature. You love muted colours that remind you of heather, and plain cotton sheets. If you must have pattern it’s usually a plaid or check and furnishings veer towards the rustic.

The Bohemian at Heart Type
You have problems sticking to one type of style but whatever you do, it just seems to work. You’re a nomad who loves to travel and collect. Magpie-like. Your tastes are eclectic and you love to layer your treasures. Anything with an ethnic twist will appeal to you. Even more so if it has tassels, pompoms or a sheen of tarnished gold.

The Simply Scandinavian Type
Adornment isn’t for you. You like your bedroom ordered and almost spartan-like. That’s not to say that it’s not comfortable. Hygge is your second name. Colours are calm and serene and you know how to layer for maximum warmth.
