There is nothing I love more than a good interior shake up. As I sit down to write this, I’ve just come out of a weekend of re-shuffling and arranging our living room because I was just having the 6 month itch to shake things up a little bit. Next up on my list is to tackle the bedroom (ooeer!) so I thought I’d share my 5 top tips for rejuvenating your bedroom Aesthetic.
As I’m sure some of you know, in Feb/March time this year, Nick and I moved from our home in Sheffield and headed south to the lovely little town of Warwick. This means I’ve had an entirely new space to work with and make our own. The bedroom has been the biggest project, we’ve only bought the bare basics so far but it’s next on my list to spice up! So I thought I’d share the 5 top tips to give our bedroom a fancy new look.
If you’re anything like me, you can’t stand clutter but you still somehow accumulate mess. I always find that having specific places for things help eliminate messy looking bedside tables. I also find that when something looks neat and tidy, I’m more inclined to keep it that way, so it’s win win! This can also apply to furniture, I’m all for de-cluttering the room and only keeping furniture you really need, helping keep the room slim lined and neat looking.
Is it just me, or is lighting the most important in the bedroom? I’m forever telling Nick to ‘turn the big light off!’. There is something about big bright lights in the bedroom that I hate. I like softer, warmer lights in the bedroom, it just makes it feel cosier, amiright? I want to get a lovely little bedside lamp for reading but for the most part I enjoy fairy lights because it just makes everything feel so much more relaxed and comforting all year round. So why not change up your lighting to something a little more subtle?
03. Buy new bedding.
I am of the honest opinion that a good duvet cover can really make a room! Whether you want to change up the sheets to something brighter and more airy during the summer, or get out the warmer and thicker sets to keep you warm in winter, it can completely change the feel of a room. I’m really enjoying some of the Scandinavian duvet covers from Julian Charles* at the moment. It’s such a simple tip but it’s a really easy way of rejuvenating a room.
04. Adding a rug.
Who doesn’t love a good rug? They can bring a different texture or colour to the room and keep your feet toasty warm! It can really change the way a room looks too, especially if you’ve got wooden floors.
05. Displaying art.
If all else fails, art is the perfect thing to rejuvenate a room. From the style and colours, even down to the frames you place them in, art can be the perfect finishing touches to a room. You can change the theme of art to match the season or change up your prints to match your new colour theme. It’s all in the art people! It’s a simple little thing to do but it can make all the difference to a room.
