Ah, January. Our FAVE time of the year! A new diary (blank pages excite us), and a chance to refresh your rooms – to create a new space for the new year ahead.
Here’s a few easy tips to creating a new look for your bedroom, on a budget…
Black is back! If you’re a little nervous (or budget-conscious) about painting a whole room black, just go for one wall, behind the bed, as they’ve done here. Simple and chic – and it makes any art prints you have on the wall really pop!
Buying just a few contemporary cushions is a quick way to totally revive your bed linen. Have a few sweet little plants around the house or outside?
Pop one at your bedside to breathe a little more life into the space.
See what we mean about the little plant on the bedside? Nice!
Rearrange your art prints around the house – taking from one room and displaying in another, grouping them differently than you have in the past.
These small ledge shelves are perfect for above your bed – display 2 or 3 of your favourite prints and add a small keepsake/memento to break it up.
Speaking of switching things around… try a fave chair as a bedside table instead!
Relive your awesome summer hols with a casual-cool collage as art on your bedroom wall. Pick and print a bunch of fave photos, arrange, and pop on the wall with washi tape.
Choose colourful patterned tape or stick with one shade – up to you! The best thing about washi tape is how cleanly it removes, so you can play around with where and how you display the photos.
Sick of your bedside table? Try a stack of your all-time fave books or magazines. So simple, so effective, and no-cost.
And who said art prints have to be on the wall? Take them down and try a few leaned up against a wall. We like it. We like it a lot!
Large art print leaning up against the wall, a stack of good magazines, a little bit of green foliage and a beautiful candle… BOOM, instant bedside style.
