10 Ways To Update Your Bedroom

In need of a little change? If you're like me, you are always on the look out for new and exciting ways to get your interior on. This however is usually just in my dreams, when I spend hours browsing Pinterest dreaming of that perfect room... hence this post. I've chosen a few simple and easy ways to completely transform your space with little additions. Whether new bedding could be a total winner or you want to create a more cosy feel - it could be a lot easier than you think.

Buy some oxygen buddies 
Plants are a great addition to any bedroom, big or small inject some green into your space.

Find a funky lamp shade
How lovely is this textured pink lamp shade? If you're looking for a pop of colour or something a little quirky to add to your bedroom this may be the perfect choice. There are so many options out there, which come in an array of sizes - pick your favourite!

Buy a new head board
Choosing the right headboard can be a mission but it becomes such a focal point in your bedroom if done right. This one is called the Petal Head Bed and I think it's just beautiful!

Texture = comfort
Get creative with textured cushions, pillows, wall art - you name it. Different materials and fabrics create such a cosy feel in any room. I love the idea of hanging hats on the wall.

Make use of light
If you want to be greeted by the sun in the morning, why not move your bed beside the window? Or perhaps place a light beside your bed for comfort and practical reasons such as reading in the evening.

Add pattern and colour
Choosing your bedding can be so fun (or am I just lame?) and there's so many to choose from. Did you see the cacti print in my 14 awesome things to buy on Urban Outfitters right now post? It's incredible. But it doesn't have to end there, go all out with cushions, blankets - go wild. I love the pink and grey accents in the set below...

Get that rug life
Mmm, rugs. So soft, so comforting and they always make a wooden floored room look so much more inviting.

Feel bright with more light
If you can add a large mirror in to your room go for it, this will make your space look so much bigger and those ootd shots will be insane. I love how below fairy lights are hung over the mirror, such a lovely spot!

Ditch the wardrobe
If you don't want a wardrobe stealing all of your space, a clothes rail could certainly be an option. This is a love or hate addition but I think it looks great - especially if it is colour co-ordinated!

Add shelving
Whether you need space for your books, plants, makeup, you name it shelves can be a lifesaver for storage or to simply show off your collection of goodies.

What's the latest thing you have updated your bedroom with?

  4. I love to move around my furniture, it makes me want to switch my decor too, since things don't look the same on certain angles of my room. I just did that last night and busted out some decor bits that I kept in a closet <3
