Bedroom Inspiration from Cottage Living

Warming up our cold Chicago bedrooms (without drowning in themes of other climates and coasts that just wouldn't make sense here) is about more than good heating and blankets. A comfortable, beautifully personalized and cozy space that's still organized and simple makes staying in bed late on weekends with a good book all the more appealing. With fresh starts upon us, we found some inspirational spaces through Cottage Living - which linked us to Southern Accents and Coastal Living, too. Midwest living can take cues from anywhere. Here are our favorites:
