Bedroom Beauty

Hey Internet Friends!
Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy my first post.
Bored of your bedroom being plain and boring? Well with these tips and ideas, your bedroom will be looking stunning in the blink of an eye.

Pick a single colour and use this as the theme for your room. You can find things like rugs, lamps, curtains and paint in this colour as it helps tie everything together. Use different shades to add variety to your room and make it more interesting. I think colour themes are great as you can make your room more personal.
Another theme idea is to pick something you love and find items that represent it. For example, if you love sea life, you can get blue curtains and rugs to represent the sea, paint sea creatures on the walls, hang up pictures and maybe even find fish cushions!

If it's fine with the owner of the house, paint your room! You can choose any colour(s) you like. A top tip is to choose a light or pastel colour. This makes you room brighter and seem bigger. Another tip for making your room look bigger is to have an accent wall. This is where just one wall is painted in the colour of your choice and the rest are painted in a neutral colour (like white, cream or stone).

An easy way to add colour to any room is by using plants. Choose a pot and flower that matches the colours in your room and place on a windowsill. Not very good at remembering to water a plant? Why not get a cactus? They come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, meaning they will fit into even the smallest of rooms. They don't take much looking after, yet still bring in nature and colour.

Personalise your room with photos! You could place them in frames around your room to decorate shelves and desks, or you could just stick them to a wall and create a huge memorial! This way you can have all your memories on display instead of hiding them away in photo albums that get forgotten about.

Now, windowsills always tend to look empty and boring. If yours does then why not decorate it? Find objects that match the theme of your room and display them for everyone to see. Large paperweights and different shaped pots always look brilliant and are so easy to find. You could always get an unusual shaped bottle and fill it with plastic flowers to create your very own feature. Glass items are also perfect as they reflect the light coming in from the window and occasionally create rainbows on the walls. So, what are you waiting for? Go to your local stores and charity shops and get rummaging! You never know, you might find a bargain!
