Is your room sending you blah vibes?
Give it a punch of personality with fun lighting, bold patterns and
sweet sounds and scents. When it comes to a boudoir you love chilling
in, you certainly don’t have to spend a boatland to go from boring
Mix your bed set patterns
Mixing patterns is totally on trend
when it comes to the threads you wear on your body. Why not use that
same idea in your room? Ask your mom if she has any spare
pillowcases, sheets or comforters around the house that you can use.
Pick a few with at least one corresponding color, like
blue-and-yellow flower sheets and a blue-and-white striped comforter.
So unique, so chic!
Set the soundtrack
Jazz up your room with a mix of songs
to fit the mood you want to create. Pick a selection of poppy tunes
like Miranda Cosgrove’s “Dancing Crazy” for getting outta bed
in the morning or dolling up for a party, or chill ones like “The
Lazy Song” by Bruno Mars for just hanging around in your PJs. Or,
make separate collections for diff occasions! Burn the playlist to a
disc or put it on your iPod and play it in your room.
Create a Scent-sation
Smell-good stuff is a great way to make
your room inviting. But let’s face it: Mom and Dad aren’t
always cool with you lighting candles (even if you promise a million
times you won’t forget to blow it out). That’s why we love the
SCENTBUG™: ah-dorable, cheap, and you can refill it with new
Get some new throw pillows
Changing your bed set is often the
first thing people think of when redecorating their room, but a full
set of sheets, comforters, and pillows can get pretty pricey.
Instead, opt for just getting some new throw pillows – they add a
decorative touch, but don’t blow the bank. We heart this glam and
girly set from JCPenney.
Decorate with Christmas lights
String lights aren’t just for the
holidays – they can add a pretty twinkle to your room any time of
the year. Ask your mom if she’s got any extras you can use, and
string them around your headboard or across your mirror or window.
Gotta buy them yourself? You’re in luck – there are all kinds of
options available any time of the year, from colored lights to ones
shaped like hearts, paper lanterns, or anything else you can think
of! We’re diggin’ on these white LED ones – simple, classic,
