If you don't follow me on twitter (here) well then you probably have no idea that for the last few weeks I've been decorating my bedroom. But I was talking so much about it and it was a much needed change that I wanted to be able to share it on my blog. 
My room used to be filled with photos, every where you looked I'd found a place to stick up a memory, collected things from friends and they were on display too...but over the years I've realised I'd stopped talking or seeing these friends, friendships had ended and my display of photos no longer felt special. My single bed was also beginning to make me feel like a child and everything about my room was beginning to dishearten me rather than be my special room in the house. Knowing I'll be living at home for many years still, I thought it was about time to take the plunge and do something about my miserable old bedroom. 

Choosing a wall colour was the hard part, but a light grey on one wall was the perfect choice. I wanted something basic and a neutral colour so the times when I decided I'm bored I can change my colour scheme without it clashing with my bedroom walls. The biggest feature to my room seems to be lighting, fairy lights mainly, which I purchased from both primark and asda...this was mainly because of the time of year I love fairy lights and I've been craving some adorable ones in my room for some time, I feel so at home with them all lit up! I also brought a small and large lamps, for both on my desk and shelve to light up two sides of my bedroom, perfect for night time blog write ups and reading books in bed, ah bliss! Since arranging my bedroom, I've realised everything I've purchased has been candles or candle holders...added with the fairy lights, lit candles in the evening is so comforting.
I also needed storage, lots of storage! While my bedroom isn't the smallest room, I own too much stuff and always seem to run out of space. So of course, with my build in wardrobes and selves, I also purchased a tall bookshelf, a wall shelf and some ikea alex drawers. My books and dvd's finally have space in my bedroom (turns out I own too many and ran out of space years ago)...and while I no longer have a dressing table/area, all my beauty products fit perfect into these 9 drawers, in fact give me a few more weeks of spending and the drawers will probably be filled up soon enough!
Of course me being me, I can't yet expect loosing my photos, or all the pretty things that I like around my bedroom. So with a more mature paint colour, a brand new double bed...I still have a few photos posted around, little ornaments around and different colours around. I've also already started looking at canvas prints to post on my walls, some of which have been Disney movie prints.

I wanted to share my room with you all, because I'm really in love with my little space now. I'm so cosy and relaxed when I walk into the room. Though I'm already struggle to keep control of keeping it clean, which seems so much more difficult now I have less floor space.

  4. Awh I love your room! I'm really liking the colour grey at the minute, especially paired with a bright yellow. That bookshelf looks like something that would come in handy in my room, all my dvds are tucked away in a big drawer! You've done a pretty good job, it looks lovely and cosy :) x

  5. Your room looks so lovely! I find it really hard to get my room just how I want it because I just have way too much stuff. I know exactly what you mean about the photos. When I went to uni I printed off hundreds of pictures to fill a huge space on my wall. After a while though, they just weren't the people that were closest in my life anymore and it felt strange to have them all over my room!

  12. I did this myself for the very same reason about 2 years ago and it's made my bedroom space feel so much calmer, and so much more like home. It also feels more grown up and I no longer feel embarrassed at the idea of new people seeing it xo

  14. What a cozy little space you've created! I'm desperately in need of a little bedroom revamp myself! It's so chaotic and busy right now ... I supposed 20 some years of accumulating things will do that, but this post is a good motivation to get to work on it! :)
