Interior Design: Bedroom Transformation

At the end of last year i did a total bedroom renovation; it hadn't been decorated since i was 17 and was starting to look a little tired and worn and as i wasn't able to travel i decided to spend the money i had saved on my bedroom



It had previously been nicknamed the fairy cave, i had things hanging off my ceiling, it was filled with my all my collectibles and was actually a really full and cluttered space. 

Since COVID i've been working from home and as it looks like this will be more long term for me (we gave up our office in March 2020 and probably won't go back to one until at least September 2021) we built a little extension on our patio to be my office space, this allowed me to move all my collectibles in there and free up some space in my room. 

I knew i wanted pink in the room and that i wanted a feature wall and i wanted to feel like a grown up space i could relax in. I played with several ideas, from an ombre pink wall, to floral wallpaper and i can't say how i ended up at grey with pink and rose gold/copper accents, but something about it felt right.

While i had now moved all my collectibles out, i still wanted a way of adding some personality to the room and i decided a gallery wall was the way i wanted to do this. I love Disney, Harry Potter and Nightmare before Christmas so i searched Etsy for prints and ended up with more than i first planned and the Gallery is now the full wall but i love how it turned out. I even got crafty and spray painted some of the frames and i'm into the mix of colours and textures i have.

Furniture wise, i didn't change much, i dreamed of adding a pink velvet art deco bed but i just didn't have the space for it (i actually made a to scale paper cut out of my room and all the furniture and spent hours trying out all types of configuration to see how i could maximize the space). The main goal was to get all the furniture white (and i had already started this earlier in the year with a bedside table and Malm drawers) so i got new Pax wardrobes from Ikea and the biggest addition was the Kallax as a sort of room divider giving me a dressing area and it is ideal for storage with the boxes. 

The finishing touches is where i added those pink and rose gold accents. I am in love with the velvet curtains, it took me 7 pairs before i found the perfect shade, sadly they weren't black out so i had to buy black out liners to go under them but they work perfectly. The door handles were stupidly expensive but i really loved them and i love the feel they give.  I added some pictures of my loved ones, a floral and pom pom wreath and an amazing plus size candle to add those final personal touches.

I also recorded a short video tour for you 

And have a before video so you can really see the transformation (and just how much crap i have haha)
