I have been wanting to re-decorate my room for such a long time, I had it all in my head exactly what I wanted. But I always thought, ohh I can’t be bothered, or was there even any point now I have started to save for my own place with my boyfriend? But then I thought, hang on no. My room is my room, I am in there all the time, when I have any spare time. It is also my room where I blog and make my YouTube videos, so of course I want it to look perfect. So we made the first step for re-decorating my room.
My room before wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t really my style anymore as I think my style and what I like has changed within the last couple of years. My room was cream, and all of my furniture was oak wood, including a wooden built in wardrobe, and I just found the wood makes my room look a lot more duller and dark.
The first step was to knock out my wardrobe completely, and this gave a whole new space that I could fill. One the wardrobe was gone it was time to paint the walls, and I opted for a pure white colour as I love a white bright room so much. Once my room was painted, I had to go out and get a new wardrobe. We took a little trip down to IKEA and ordered a new wardrobe, and I also got the Alex drawers which I am super happy with as I had wanted these for so long now. My wardrobe is perfect for me, as it’s in a shabby chic white, with 3 doors and the middle door has a full length mirror on it, which is something that was a must for me.
I already had a dressing table and mirror, which I just painted white, and I also have a chest of drawers which I am still needing to paint white too. Then things like my stool for my dressing table and a shelf, I also painted, so really there was quite a lot of DIY in this room too.It also just saves you that little bit of extra money rather than having to buy all new furnature. There is definitely a white theme going on, can you tell?
With everything being white, I wanted to add a pop of colour so I have added a bit of dusky pink colour in my room also. I have new curtains which are a plain dusky pink colour, and I also have a dusky pink cushion and throw for my bed. There is also a slight theme of copper in my room now too, with little copper accessories. I mean who doesn’t love copper?!
I am so so happy with my room now, I feel a lot more creative in it and it is very much more my kind of style now. I describe it as a typical bloggers room.
I am definitely thinking about doing a room tour, but when I hit a personal goal of YouTube subscribers, so if you would like to see that, you can subscribe t my channel here
