The Pinterest-Proven Formula for the Ultimate Cozy Bedroom

Let’s do an experiment. Navigate over to Pinterest, type the phrase “cozy bedroom” into the search bar, and see what comes up. Pretty specific, right? It seems the internet has decided there’s a clear-cut formula to having a beautiful-but-cozy bedroom, and it involves lots of texture, a lack of housekeeping and copious amounts of tea. If you’re after this look for yourself (I don’t blame you, it is lovely), hang around while I break down this blueprint.

A 160-Square-Foot, 1972 Airstream Is a Beautifully Renovated Home for Two — House Tour

Name: Rachael Gibilterra , her husband Virgil, and their rescue pup, Jovie
Location: San Diego, California
Size: 160 square feet
Years lived in: 3 months, owned

Rachael and Virgil live full time in this Airstream (currently parked at an RV park in San Diego) that they renovated themselves. She tells their story: We purchased this Airstream in March of 2017 with its 1972 original interior in all of its grungy glory, with nonfunctional electrical and a lovely infestation of cockroaches and remnants of mice and snake inhabitants, too, yikes! We gutted it all the way down, fixed the chassis and put in all new insulation, subfloor, electrical, plumbing…everything is fresh and new!

We had a lot of help from the Airstream community along the way, especially from the ladies who made us fall in love with Airstream life, Kate and Ellen of The Modern Caravan . We wouldn’t have been able to do it without such a huge, knowledgeable support group.

A Couple & Three Dogs Share a 200-Square-Foot “Bitty Berkeley Bungalow” — House Tour

Name: Rebekah Carey , husband Alex, and 3 pups!
Location: Berkeley, California
Size: 200 square feet
Years lived in: 2.5 years, owned

Rebekah and Alex (plus their three dogs!) share a 200-square-foot converted 1905 garage they’ve lived in for nearly two and a half years. Though they’re both native to Oregon state, they’ve lived in the Bay Area at different points in their lives and always felt a connection to Berkeley. When they realized the garage in Rebekah’s grandma’s backyard wasn’t being put to much use, they asked themselves (and grandma, of course) if it had the potential to become a home. Months later, they embarked on their most laborious DIY project ever, but as Rebekah says, “The best things come to those who wait.”

We Can’t Get Enough: A Big Gallery of Beautiful Scandinavian Style Living Rooms

It’s no secret that we love the minimal elegance of Scandinavian style. The hallmarks of the look—white painted walls, pale woods, black accents, cozy textiles and tons of gray—are solid basics to admire (or build off of for something a little funkier). This Northern European aesthetic speaks to the dark days of winter the region is known for, creating as much light inside when it’s in short supply outside the windows. Dashes of color (like bright canary yellow) are reminders that spring will indeed on day return. To celebrate our love of the look, we’ve collected Scandi-inspired living rooms from Sweden, Denmark, Colorado, California, and beyond that have a perfect balance of clean minimalism and inviting hygge .

A Modern Adobe Farmhouse Home in Marfa — House Tour

Name: Ginger Griffice and Chick Rabourn
Location: Marfa, Texas
Size: 1,200 square feet
Years lived in: 2 years, owned

If you ask people what the town of Marfa, Texas is all about, you’ll hear a variety of different narratives describing this small, rural cultural curiosity: It’s an old place that is having new life breathed into it; It’s a dying town that’s being reborn as a cultural center. It’s hip…it’s dried up. But if you ask Ginger Griffice and Chick Rabourn what Marfa means to them, they’ll tell you it means home. Like many of the “expats” that move to Marfa from elsewhere in the country, Ginger and Chick quickly found that it was a place where the pace was slower, where they had the space to create, and that they could not only pursue their own personal goals and dreams, but also integrate themselves into a thriving community of artists. Their adobe house, which is both firmly grounded in Texas’ indigenous architectural history and in Marfa’s modernity, is a perfect example of Marfa’s many contradictions…and of its many charms.

A “Mountain Modern” Cabin in the Woods — House Tour

Name: Amanda and Courtney Sprinkling-Felt, and daughter Georgia
Location: Stevenson, Washington
Size: 1,800 square feet on 28 acres
Years lived in: 1 year, owned

When Courtney saw a foreclosure listing for a “retreat” on 28 acres in remote Stevenson, Washington, she thought it could be the perfect woodsy getaway for her family. She went to see the property that day…and discovered that it had been uninhabited for years and was in pretty bad shape. Despite the infestations of mice and spiders, she saw its potential, and convinced her wife Amanda that they should purchase the cabin and land, which was about an hour away from their home and businesses in Portland.

An Event Planner’s Modern, Quiet Quonset Hut in Detroit — House Tour

Name: Haley Lertola
Location: True North — Detroit, Michigan
Size: 1,100 square feet
Years lived in: 1/2 year, renting

Haley Lertola owns an event planning and design company, Detroit Cultivated , where she’s “committed to disrupting the Detroit event industry by creating inspired experiences that incorporate sustainable practices. One of the goals of each event is to transport guests to a truly original setting. In late 2016 we planned a dinner party for a corporate client in the two original Quonset huts. I loved every minute of working in the Quonset hut. I felt inspired by its unique shape and the natural light that was let in on such on a cold, December day in Michigan.”

Years lived in: 2 years, renting

After returning from traveling and living all over Australia two years ago, Kayne and Amelia were lucky enough to be offered this beach shack to rent in Busselton through a friend.

Yet, two years have now passed, and they have completely fallen in love with their affordable little beach shack…and can’t see themselves moving anytime soon.

A Modern Renovation Brings “West Coast Beach” Style to Canada — House Tour

Name: Ryan and Katie Royle
Location: Dundas — Ontario, Canada
Size: 1,300 square feet
Years lived in: 1 Year, owned

When Ryan and Katie first looked at this home, it was like a set on That ’70s Show. Nasty shag carpet, wood paneling, weird blocked off rooms. It had it all…and this couple didn’t want any of it. But after enlisting the help of local designer, Krista of KMSalter Design , they were able to have their dream home. Together, they transformed this house into the perfect “West Coast” home, located in a small neighborhood in Southern Ontario.
