Is your bedroom starting to feel a little… tired? Open your eyes to a new look for the New Year. Create a cozy retreat where you and your family can relax and recharge — or sleep in  and snuggle — in the year ahead.

LOVELY LAYERS

You spend half your life in bed, so make it inviting! The layered look is in — start with fresh sheets, add a new duvet or comforter, and top it off with a throw or pretty quilt. A bed skirt and pillow shams create a finished look. Don’t forget to refresh your pillows if you’ve had them for a while. Nothing beats a cozy place to lay your head at night and get re-energized for tomorrow.

BEDSIDE VANITY TABLE

We love furniture that multi-tasks. This lovely table serves as vanity and nightstand. As a vanity, it’s the perfect place to powder your nose and put your favorite jewelry on display. In nightstand mode, it’s a handy place to keep daily essentials — reading glasses, lotions, fragrances — so you know just where to find them when you need them. (We know we’re not the only ones constantly loosing our glasses. And where’s that remote… )

PRETTY STORAGE

The end of the bed is a great place to store extra blankets until you need them on a chilly winter night. As an alternative to the popular storage bench, try placing two or three hand-woven baskets at the foot of your bed. They’re versatile, inexpensive, and keep the floor clear of those pesky piles that seem to crop up out of nowhere.

READING NOOK

Claim a cozy corner where you can curl up with a good book on a rainy afternoon, or snuggle up for story time with your little one. The first step is to pick a comfy chair that fits well in the space — not too big or too small. (The Goldilocks of lounge chairs.) Add a lamp, coffee table, and magazine stand to have somewhere to stash your murder mysteries and news magazines. Some floral wall art and a decorative throw complete this storybook scene.

Got all that? Nice! Then we’ll see you at HomeGoods, where you’ll discover great savings on everything you need for your personal, nighttime oasis.
