It happened one night right before I turned out the light and climbed into bed. My heart starting pounding, my head started racing, and two words were flashing in my mind: BEDROOM MAKEOVER.
Ya know when you just get the urge to switch things up?! When I was a kid I used to rearrange my furniture alllll the time just for a little change. Adulting Dani ain’t that different! I still love to make small changes to my room to freshen it up. Here are my top tips!
1. Double It Up.
A good old symmetrical bedside table look never fails! It’s so easy, and so chic. Plus, everyone needs a bedside table and a lamp! Adding a mirror can make a big difference too – plus it will give the illusion of a bigger room!
You know how your desk can feel so cluttered so quickly, but you really need a lot of stuff on there?! Use acrylic containers and accessories! They’re clear, so from a distance, it barely looks like you have anything on your desk!
3. Have Breakfast in Bed.
Okay I know this isn’t a permanent change, but when you use your bedroom for a different purpose than usual, it transforms the entire atmosphere! So this weekend, eat breakfast in bed! Do something a lil different than you usually would.
4. Decorate with Books & Candles.
So easy – so effective. Coffee table books can get pricey, so I recommend grabbing discounted ones at Marshalls and TJ Maxx! I have legit walked into Barnes & Noble, grabbed a book, been like “$50?! Pshhhh girl please”, walked into Marshalls, and found the SAME BOOK for $25. Don’t sleep on Marshalls y’all!
5. Add a Chair!
If you have a lonely little corner in your room, give it a friend! Pop a cute chair in, throw a cozy blanket over the side, and start actually reading all of those books on your bedside table!
Find your fave photos and some cute prints and throw up a gallery wall! It makes such a statement. I would advise using pieces of similarly sized paper and taping it all into position before you pull out the hammer, though – it’s a little trickier to place them than I expected but once you get going, you’ll be totally fine.
7. Make Your Bed.
Nothing makes a bigger difference than embracing and remembering what you already HAVE. Clean your room, make your bed, and organize your drawers. Sometimes a clean up sesh is as good as a new bedspread.
