Four Things I Love About My Bedroom

Posted in Lifestyle
Bedding

While I don’t spend as much time actually sleeping as I’d like I do spend a quite a bit of time in my bedroom from getting ready in the morning and doing my make up to packing for holidays and laying in bed watching re-runs of How I Met Your Mother.

I’m a huge fan of the minimalistic/ rustic feel of rooms that I am always seeing on Pinterest but the look just doesn’t suit my style. I have a lot of things, including a lot of what would be classed as knick-knacks, and my room is never going to have that feel and I’m okay with it. Despite looking like it’s just been thrown together I have spent quite a bit of time working out certain bits of my room to make sure it’s perfect for my needs, so here are my favourite bits of my bedroom.

Fancy Bedding

Before a few months’ ago I had a lot of bedding but they all came from places like Primark/ Asda/ Argos, the kind where you pay a bargain £15-25 for a king sized duvet cover in pretty fancy patterns. For years’ this worked well for me until I splurged on some Habitat 300 thread count bedding and I now can’t go back. There’s not as much choice in 300 thread count bedding so I went for a block grey colour which came with the king sized duvet cover and a pair of pillowcases for about £100 (I know I’d never have thought about spending as much on bedding before), then I bought two 300 thread count black pillows from Amazon and a deep black fitted sheet from Very in the same thread count and my bed feels like a cloud to sleep on. Having the additional thread count keeps it cool in the warmer months, keeps the heat in during the winter and it feels so soft I want to snuggle up in it even more.

Artwork

My artwork wall

I absolutely love artwork from little postcards with pictures on to inspirational quotes. I have a lot of things adorning my walls but I am really happy with my little artwork corner which lines a space by my window. There’s a whole bunch of greetings and postcards which sit in black frames but my favourite one is a foil print from Etsy which reads ‘New York Is Always A Good Idea’. Along with my inspiration posts, there’s also an Ikea photo frame which has some photos of me and my friends, and I just think this is such a fun area of my room.

Lumie

Lumie clock

I’ve struggled with getting up in the mornings for a long time, I am a night owl and not a morning person. My boyfriend though has to get up for work sometime between 5 and 6am depending where he’s working so we generally go to bed earlier meaning I wanted to start getting up earlier in the mornings. I find myself more productive in the mornings, things are quieter and if I want to work out this is generally the best time, but I used to always just fall straight back asleep after he got up to go to work which is why I invested in a Lumie clock. I’ll be doing a separate post on this sometime soon but basically what it does is stimulate’s a sunrise so for the half an hour before my alarm goes off I am naturally woken up as opposed to abruptly by an alarm. It’s definitely one of my favourite focus’ in my bedroom.

Wristbands

Wristband artwork

I absolutely love going to festivals and back when I was 18 I used to wear all my wristbands but they got horrible and I had way too many so I started creating some artwork to showcase them. These frames house all the wristbands I’ve had from festivals (although annoyingly a few didn’t give material ones- dang!) I think they look awesome on the wall especially when festivals choose bright colours or funky designs, and it’s definitely a talking point for anyone who see’s them.

    I love how big my bedroom is. I have a sitting area with a couch for the TV so I can relax and my elliptical is in that area as well. It’s perfect for my husband and I.

    I love that you have artwork displayed in your room and motivational quotes too! I love a colorful room and I’m also more of a minimalist.

  • Amber Nelson

    What a cool idea for your wristbands. I was thinking of doing something like that with my ticket stubs.

  • I love that wristband art! I should make something similar with my daughter’s favorite wristbands from summer.

    I love the art prints! I love displaying artwork in various places in my home, especially my bedroom. My favorite thing about my bedroom is my regal-esque headboard, which I had received as a gift on my 17th birthday.

  • TheNewClassy

    My daughter would flip for that sugar skull pillow. She loves to collect those things. If she sees this post, you had better lookout. She might just come for it, lol!

  • You’re making me want to snazz up my bedroom! It’s been on my to-do list for a while 🙂

  • Mellissa Williams

    Your bedroom is really funky. Love that wristband artwork and the skull cushion

  • I love my new diffuser. It helps soothe me to sleep at night with the sounds of the steam and the colored lights.

  • I love my bed. It’s so comfortable and welcoming that I almost don’t want to get out of it in the morning.

  • Jennifer Eastwell

    I need to buy some more artwork for my new house in general. I love buying new bedding, really soft with pretty patterns. Unfortunately my partner just likes boring plain ones though!
