Layering Up My Bedroom For a Super Cosy Autumn!

Borta bra, hemma bäst. I'm not sure if you're familiar with this Swedish saying which means 'away is good but home is best' (or 'there's no place like home'). And I have to admit it was soooo nice to be home again after the summer holidays. Don't get me wrong, I loved our little family adventure, but it was BLISS to be back in my own bed! Do you find this too? Admittedly, it helped that I've also given our bedroom a heavenly revamp with the new Granit premium collection. I'd never want to will away the rest of summer, BUT the collection is an absolute DREAM and perfect for Autumn! It's made up of layers of super soft bedsheets, blankets, pillows and curtains in five muted, earthy tones inspired by nature: sand, shell, clay, stone and soil. I also love that every piece been made using super soft, high quality materials including 100% organic cotton dyed with OEKO-TEX certified colours and 100% European Flax Linen, velvet and corduroy. And the collection is designed to work harmoniously together to create a restful and relaxing space. Bring on the chill! 

Our bed is layered with duvet covers in clay and soil and a mountain of cosy pillows in clay, soil and cotton rib stone. 

This corner of our bedroom is a little like a mini living room - and one of the few places you can actually escape the rest of the clan - needless to say, it's one of my favourite spots in the house! I added linen curtains in shell which slip in a soft light for a really calm feel. 

I've always had a bit of a thing for velvet, especially with - dare I say it - the weather starting to turn colder! These three pillows are in soil, clay and shell tones. 

And finally, this is the cotton rib blanket I was talking about.  I chose the sand which I really love as it goes with absolutely everything in our home - and I do love to move blankets around depending on where we're cosying up!

What do you think? 

I was particularly excited that the collection matched the existing colours in my bedroom so perfectly  - I love it when a plan comes together! But since the tones are earthy, they'd seriously look good in any space. 

Granit's first ever premium collection will be available throughout Europe online at from 15th August and in selected stores including Münster; Germany, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Helsinki from 22nd August. Note, the bedding will be available in Scandinavian measurements only. If you're a Granit community member, you can look forward to a pre-launch in the next few days! 

Oh yes, in addition to the textiles, Granit has developed an indoor paint in collaboration with Byggfabriken that will be available in five organic colours that directly match the new premium collection! The Auro paint is completely organic, plastic-free and non-toxic. The paint will be available at Byggfabriken in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö, and you'll be able to pick up colour samples in Granit stores. Auro in Germany can also mix the colours upon request. 

I can't wait to pick up the samples - I'm thinking of revamp Liv's bedroom. Don't tell Per, he's still recovering from the kitchen renovation....    

In the meantime, if anyone's looking for my entire family, we'll no doubt be right here feeling restful and relaxed in my newly revamped bedroom! 


This is a paid partnership with Granit, however all words and pictures are my own and I only ever work with brands that I love and think you will too! 


  1. Odd question.... but is there a way to find out the paint colour code? I’ve been looking for a colour similar to this, but not quite the same 😂. We’ve been renovating our home and looking for a colour to paint our closet. Your blog has been extremely inspirational and given me great ideas as we’ve been renovating! 😃🙏

    1. Hi Nadia, I've tried searching for it but I'm afraid Jotun donut share the NCS colour code for their paints. I wish I could be more help! Thank you so much for your kind words about my blog, I'm so happy you enjoy it and it's been helpful for your renovation :)

    2. Hi, a bit late, but Jotun do share the ncs-code, see here for example:

    3. Thank you so much Rita - great find!! I was looking around for the 2018 ones after seeing these but no luck, if you find it can you let me know? I'd love to be able to share the code :)

      Just scroll down, the 2018 are just below. The blushing peach is NCS 2914-Y53R
      I always prefer to see the NCS-code, as it tells me a lot about how the color will appear in different light, so I love that they include it like this.

  2. Hi! Is the wall coulour from granit?/hanna

    1. No, it's Blushing Peach by Jotun lady. I haven't seen the samples yet from the Garnit paint collection but I'm guessing they will be beautiful and have something similar.

  3. I love that hanging shelf in the corner.
