We spend at least 1/3 of our time in our bedrooms, yet how many of us are actually happy with the way our rooms look? I know I wasn’t until recently when I decided to focus on decorating my bedroom into what I’ve always dreamed of (or conjured up in my head after seeing gorgeous bedrooms on Instagram). Achieving the ever sought after #bedroomgoals doesn’t have to be a challenge though, as long as you have a few bedroom essentials. Of course, if you’re like me then I’m sure things are never complete, but for now I love what I have done so far.
Here is short guide to help you make home (or in this case your bedroom) your haven:
Remove the Clutter
This is a big one! And probably the easiest (or the hardest for some people). Clutter really stresses me out, and I’ve realized that keeping it out of my bedroom really makes a huge difference. Plus, when you remove all the clutter it’s almost like starting over with a blank slate!
Sheets are a staple piece when it comes to your bedroom…after all you are going to be sleeping (hopefully) at least 8 hours a night in them. My favorite sheets are my Ribbon Patterned 4-Piece Sheet Set from Linens & Hutch. They have the best selection of patterned sheet sets (I seriously wanted all of them), and they are super soft too! And who doesn’t love soft sheets?! They also have solid sheet sets if patterned sheets isn’t your thing, though I highly recommend you take a peak because patterned sheets were so not my thing until I discovered Linens & Hutch. ;)
What is a duvet? I have been asked this question many times and my answer is always the same “like sleeping on a cloud,” but in all seriousness it’s like a comforter but better! I’ve been using a duvet for many years now and I can say that I will never go back! Duvets are super fluffy, lightweight and warm quilts filled with down, feathers or synthetic fibers (down alternative). I live in a climate that’s cold more than half of the year so my duvet gets used almost year round. Typically, duvets are meant to have a cover on them, which makes it easy to change up your bedding just like a pillow! Linens & Hutch has tons of cute patterned duvet covers similar to their sheet sets that I’ve been dying to try. I have my eye on the Rugged Stripes 3-Piece Duvet Cover Set once I bring the duvet back out. Right now I’ve been sleeping with a lightweight blanket for the summer months.
Pillows are a super easy way to transform your room and achieve a fresh new look. The best thing about them is that you can reuse the same pillow forms and swap out the covers as much as you’d like. My style is constantly changing, so I love that something as simple as a new pillow cover updates my décor. Plus, I can sew one in no time!
I love plants and I absolutely love incorporating plants into my décor! Adding greenery to any space freshens up the room while helping clean our air at the same time. You can bring in texture and fun pops of color by choosing unique items to use as planters. Estate sales are always filled with inexpensive pots, mugs, baskets, etc. There is something so pleasing about the aesthetic of plants and the feeling of serenity they add to a room.
Thanks for reading! I hope love your room as much as I love mine. It’s always nice to have a place to unwind and relax at the end of a long day! Sweet dreams!
