Cozy Cottage Bedroom for Fall

When I saw this cozy bedroom posted at Danish Dessert recently, it looked like the perfect spot to snuggle into on a crisp fall day. It also reminded me of one of my favorite movie houses (and bedrooms).

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?


It looks like it could've been inspired by Iris's bedroom in one of my favorite "house movies," The Holiday. Iron bed, painted nightstand, beamed ceilings. It has the same warm and welcoming vibe, don't you think? (If you loved Kate Winslet's cottage in The Holiday as much as I did, click here for more photos.)

I'm hooked on these cozy cottage bedrooms. Head to Hooked on Houses to see what everyone else is sharing--and to join the Treasure Hunt to win an Amazon gift certificate! I'm also joining the Beautiful Life party over at The Inspired Room.

  1. The movie bedroom seems larger, but other than that it's got the same vibe. I'd pick the movie version, because of the fireplace.

  6. Gorgeous! I love cozy rooms. The first home I ever owned was a little cozy place, and I had a plaque with its name on it made to go by the front door. It was called 'Cozhaven' because it was my very own cozy haven.

  7. Hi Julia, what a lovely room. I'm ready for a cup of tea, on the bed with a good book and a roaring fire...ok maybe when it cools down a bit...but I think we all get the picture...it is cozy!
    Blessings,

  8. It does look like it could be from The Holiday! We had 8 girls over here watching it one night, such a hoot as we all swooned over Jude Law.

  9. I fell asleep on the couch last night, watching The Holiday for the gazillionth time. Iris's house, in a warm coastal setting, would be the perfect place to plop down for a lifetime.

  12. Love all those patterns and colors! I wonder if the owners if the first bedroom have ever climbed into that cozy bed and watched "The Holiday" from there!

  19. Cozy and dreamy, love the pictures. Isn't it amazing how much feeling one little picture can elicit?!

  20. I love both the rooms - the layered bed linen, the metal bedsteads, the painted bedside tables and the wooden floors and rugs. But as someone who lives in the UK and has shivered in many a gorgeous cottage, the Holiday one wins because of the fire!

    I'm easing my way back in gently after a few weeks away from blogging because of illness, overwhelm and exhaustion; your blogs are as good as a tonic. Thank you!

  21. Great cozy bedroom, but I am with janice (above comment) on preferring the one with the fire!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh...I want that bed! I love those rooms - the linens....all of it. It's me!

    Thanks Julie for allowing me to kick off my flip-flops - or right now, I'll say my garden shoes!

    Have a wonderful weekend! Lylah
