With the bedroom being such a private space, it's the perfect room for giving a personal touch to and decorating however you may wish. I have to say, my bedroom is probably the one room in my home which is most definitely 'me'. It's my happy place, my place to just sit back and relax in and escape from the chaos of the rest of the house that has been overtaken by my children and their plethora of toys!
VQ Retro MK II radio - I absolutely love the Emma Bridgewater floral print on it.
My bedroom is a place I'm constantly looking to improve and searching for beautiful bedding sets online and other little pretty touches is another thing I love to do - and to think, I used to think my mother was crazy for constantly redecorating her room and buying new bedding, I've morphed into her!
I've created a calming atmosphere in my bedroom by using fairy lights and candles to give a warm glow to the room after it gets dark. Fairy lights are super cheap these days and most are LED meaning you can leave them on and not worry about wasting electricity. I love my rose style fairy lights and I always have a lavender Yankee Candle burning before bedtime to give the room a calming scent.
Pay attention to the soft furnishings
I have a plethora of cushions on my bed, as, not only are they pretty to have displayed on the bed and handing for sitting up with when I'm having a few minutes to myself during the day, but they're also a real style statement too. All of my cushions are miss-matched but each as pretty as the other and I love seeing them on the bed.
Have personal effects on display
Your bedroom is your personal space, so having things that mean a lot to you on display is just perfect for creating an inviting atmosphere. I have pictures of my family on display in white frames on my windowsills, dresses I love hanging on the back of my door and my favourite jewellery pieces displayed on trinkets on my dresser.
One of my favourite things to have on display in my home is fresh flowers and I especially love to have them sitting on my dresser. They just really help to brighten up the place and the prettier the flower, the better - peonies and roses with gypsophila are my personal favourites for the bedroom. If flowers aren't your thing, then succulents, cacti and other potted plants are a great thing to have displayed on windowsills or bedside tables. You could also add nature to your bedroom by displaying some outdoor prints or pictures on your walls.
As you can see, my bedroom is very floral and shabby chic inspired, but it suits my taste and personality and ultimately, that's what you want in a bedroom. It's my perfect space to relax in and I love all the pretty pieces I have in there.
I'd love to know how you've decorated your own bedroom?
