November is reaching its end and it has been a real cliché here – lots of grey and foggy days, cold and wet. It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to stay in bed all day and just not go out. Probably this was the idea about our November topic for Urban Jungle Bloggers: Creating a cosy bedroom with green plants to make those dull, grey November days bearable seemed like a nice task. For me it was literally a last minute task: I was running from work to grab the last bit of gloomy November daylight to make a super quick styling and shoot the pictures.
I have shared images of my bedroom a few times already and I always have plants there. This time I have shuffled my plants a little bit and changed the selection: I have moved the monstera plant next to the bed, I have added my aloe vera plant, my purple succulent, my white fluffy cactus and my latest addition, an offshoot of a plant called purple heart that I received from my Urban Jungle Bloggers partner in crime, Judith. Additionally I have added a cutting of a succulent on my Kimidori stool (I actually nicked that cutting in a Greek restaurant) and I hung an air plant above my bed.
Colour wise I love mustardy hues this time of the year. I have added a brand new bedspread from Urbanara in a soft and tactile waffle structure, paired it with a few blue cushions – that’s it. I matched it with my yellow desk lamp, a mustard hued kitchen towel and I served myself a cup of green tea in my new, handmade Japanese mug also from Urbanara. Add a great new magazine (The Happy Reader) and voilà – after the shooting I jumped into bed and had a good read and finished my tea.
Since we’re approaching the festive season I am continuing my Santa mission today too: I have teamed up with Urbanara to offer you the same bedspread in the wonderful mustard colour too. All you have to do to join the giveaway is leave a comment under this blogpost. The giveaway will be open until Sunday, November 30, 2014, midnight CET. It is open to all European readers.
Here’s to a calm and happy weekend in our cosy and green bedroom!

Oh thank you my friend!! It was just a very quick shooting but it reflects my current November mood:-)
What Cappello said!! And loving the mustard and green combo, too x
Da ist dir trotz des trüben Novemberwetters nicht nur ein cosy, sondern auch ein sunny Styling gelungen. Sieht klasse aus! Ich musste etwas improvisieren, aber dabei sein ist schließlich alles… lg, Anette
Oh danke Dir – das war alles eine hektische last-minute Geschichte, aber ich kann damit gut leben (und darin gut schlafen) 🙂 Bis heute Abend!
Wonderful wooden side table and the plant’s stand is also great!
Thank you my friend!! Have a happy Thursday & xairetismous stin Athina!
Θα δώσω 😉
Ohhh I like that mustard yellow bedspread by Urbanara a lot, it’s such a cosy hue and fits your little green abode perfectly! Very happy to see that the Purple Heart plant seems to love it in Münich! (oh and by the way, the light isn’t nearly as bad as expected, it’s nice November light after all!!!) Sweet dreams, Igor! 😉 And hurray for yet another UJB edition!
Thank you my friend!! The Purple Heart is growing indeed – I am very happy about it! Oh and with your comment here you have qualified for the Urbanara giveaway – I am giving away one exact bedspread! Fingers crossed:-)
Awesome! I think it would look great with all the yellow here at home 😉
What a lovely light bedroom! And I love that bedspread!
Une jolie épiphite en suspension au dessus du lit, une couverture moutarde qui apporte de la chaleur et l’envie de lire au chaud … Tout ce dont je rêve en ce moment and that’s perfect !)
The mustard colour is perfect for cheering up a room in cold and dark and dreary November! And such a great texture. Beautiful.
urbanara ist sowieso mein aktuellster crush. love love love it!
und bei dir ists sowieso schönst!
ein herzelein an dich!
Ui, schon wieder so ein schönes Give Away, das sit ja schon wie Weihnachten. Senfgelb finde ich super, und wir haben ja auch eine Wand im Schlafzimmer schwarz (also eigentlich ist es superdunkles Grau, sieht aber schwarz aus). Das passt toll zu Gelb. Pflanzen sind immer eine gute Idee, wobei ich im Schlafzimmer keine habe und auch eher so strubbeligere Pflanzen mit vielen kleinen Blättern mag. Dein weißer Hängetopf ist auch sehr schnucklig!!!
Viele liebe Grüße
Sigh, I love everything here… And that hanging planter is so cute! I really like that you painted the diagonal ceiling dark, it makes it even more cosy.
I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to the colour mustard, I love it so much, but would it go with the sage green in our bedroom, what do you think? It looks fab here anyway!
Oooh, this is such a treat for the eyes! Love the sunshiny colours mixed with the plants. And the aloe and cactus together are perfect.
That bedspread is GORGEOUS!!! Love the colour. Your boudoir looks so cozy and lovely, just like you!
Curious about ‘The Reader’ magazine and that ceramic hanging vase is so cute and really similar to mine. Funny we both have an air plant in it… it’s perfect.
Love the Purple Heart too:-)
Great post my friend!
Oh, was für ein schöner, sonniger Lichtblick!
Wir haben auch eine Schlafzimmerwand dunkelblau gestrichen und das wirkt gerade jetzt etwas trübe und könnte einen Farbtupfer vertragen…
Ich hoffe, Du fässt nicht aus Versehen nachts in den Kaktus neben dem Bett, wenn Du den Lichtschalter suchst ;o)
You inspire me to spread some yellow hues in my appartment too Igor! I haven’t used that much colorful objects, but I’m moving on Monday to my new appartment and considering on investing on some yellow pieces to create a happy interior 🙂
And oh that blanket!!! It’s just awesome!
ps. Currently looking for succulents in Munich for my new home and I love your window side plants too!
Das ist wirklich ein sehr gemütliches Schlafzimmer! Und die Farbe der Decke ist wunderschön (und würde sich super in meinem Schlafzimmer machen) 😉
Love this! The yellow bed cover definitely adds a boost of colour to the other organic accessories in the room. I like the hints of blue in the cushions and the mixture of textures too! Overall I love the feel and the colours 🙂
Mmm, mustard yellow, fits my mustaches perfectly 🙂
Bedspread ideal for cold days that have already come.
Mustard yellow is a colour is a earthy colour that enhances the greenery and it goes perfectly with a black+white+some hints of blue palette! Very elegant!
really lovely interior. in fact a healthy interiors. green plants are always use full good . they take in carbon dioxide and give us oxygen . very elegant and comfort interior.
Gorgeous interior, the earthly colours help create and relaxing ambiance to come to after a stressful day. Very impressive
Love Urbanara, beautiful things for special moments at home!
Oh that color, and texture, but one thing is missing in your setup…:) and that is one stroopwafel on the top of that beautiful tea cup.
Jedan jesenji pozdrav iz Beograda

Love that tone of yellow!
Your bedroom nook always looks so cozy Igor!
Really regret not having the time this month to join UJB..

Liebe Grüße und bis bald mal wieder

Love the styling, the plants and all the shades of yellow/mustard, a color that I’m introducing in my home in these days..the blanket would be perfect in my bedroom! 😉
Super Styling gegen Winterblues!
I came here looking for Christmas gift ideas. That room looks amazing! I want to gift everything in there 🙂
Ooh right in time for the contest!
A really gorgeous bedspread! It reminds me of one we had in the 1970s …. but in a good way! I just adore your apartment Igor 🙂
Hmm, it seems my comment from yesterday afternoon is not showing up and now it’s past midnight 🙁 But I wanted to let you know anyway what a beautiful bedroom I think you have! Love the mustard yellow! And all the plants, of course, especially the cacti.
Igor what a stylish room you have. The mustard bedspread is divine and works beautifully with the green. Shame I’m not in Europe!
Knapp verpasst, was für ein Mist!
Ich möchte übrigens sofort in den Schlafzimmer einziehen 🙂
Super schöne Inspiration !!

Brilliant! I love the yellow and small design ideas; on the one hand it’s simple, on the other is so creative! Shows an interesting spirit of the owner for sure…
Great pops of color while keeping the minimal design throughout the room! Awesome post, I’m a fan from Texas.
Thank you very much Mason!
