6 Easy Tips to Create The Bedroom of Your Dreams

6 Easy Tips to Create The Bedroom of Your Dreams

Our bedrooms are where we spend the majority of our time, so it’s so important to make sure we have a space that inspires, comforts, and motivates us. I recently redecorated and painted (okay, my DAD painted and my MOM helped me redecorate) my bedroom and I’m absolutely in love with the way it turned out! The walls went from a bland beige to a stunning grey-toned white, with blush and gold accents. Here are my 6 best tips to creating the bedroom of your dreams!

Fix up something old – this nightstand used to be baby blue, which just didn’t match my updated room anymore. For a sleek, good-as-new nightstand, we spray painted the top glossy white and the legs gold. Fixing up something old is honestly the best thing to do when updating your room because it feels like something brand new without the huge price tag that a new piece would have cost!

Add some adorable throw pillows – I found these throw pillows at Target and immediately fell in love! The white faux fur pillow goes perfectly with the two gold-sequined ones, and together they are the perfect accents to my bed. Without these, my all-white bed would be bland and boring, but the different textures and metallics definitely amp it up!

For the best wall accessories, head to Target – This quote canvas and ‘XO’ piece are just two of the adorable and affordable wall accents you’ll find. Target has such a huge selection with so many different color schemes so you’re guaranteed to find something you love. I’m a sucker for quotes so I knew I needed the ‘live what you love’ canvas and was so excited to see how perfectly the ‘xo’ piece goes with it!

DIY canvases for the win! – I made these canvases years ago and they’ve been two of my favorite things in my room ever since. Reading has always been a huge part of my life, so I wanted to hang something above my bookshelf that would portray that. I created the bottom canvas by ripping out pages of a book (sad, I know) and using mod podge to glue them to the canvas. Then just write your quote over the pages using a paint pen, and create  a matching canvas to go with it!

Love your initials? Hang ’em up! – We all know I love my initials (I did spell KAPtivating with a K for a reason) so I almost cried tears of joy when I saw these adorable wooden letters at Michael’s. These are the perfect accent above my television where there’s an awkward amount of wall space that always looks like it needs something hanging there, and they make a great addition to any room!

Keep the small details in mind – Michael’s also has adorable tiny frames (like the gold one pictured above) and Target always has the best small details that pull a room together, like the faux succulent and ‘love’ sign. Keep these tiny, but necessary, details in mind when shopping for your room decor… those are what will make your room unique and show off your personality the most!
