I’ve Re-Decorated my Bedroom

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 amย superย 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

Love always, G x

    It looks great! I love white walls. The walls in my flat are technically white, but all of the lighting is yellow so everything looks beige. Looks like you have loads of lovely natural light!
