How to: Pretty up your room

Hello Everyone,

Today's post is going to be on how to pretty up your room. I have recently completely refurnished my room and these are a few things I discovered when decorating!


Lace is a really pretty, low cost way to instantly add some shabby chic charm. Pop into your local haberdashery and ask for a few yards.

❤  Storage

Chuck out those cardboard boxes and invest in some prettier storage. Wicker baskets are a great way to store make up, hairbrushes, copybooks - anything! Mugs are also a novel way to tidy up make up brushes or pencils - as well as being awfully useful when making a cup of tea!

  Bed Covers

It may seem simple but a pretty duvet cover will make all the difference to your room. Tesco and TK Maxx are great for offering cute covers for a fraction of the normal price.


Lighting is an essential part of your room but that doesn't mean it can't look lovely too! Choose a pretty printed lampshade to break up the room. Fairy lights are also a fab way to add a subtle glow to a shelf or mirror.

  Keep it Simple

If you want to dig out your paintbrushes and completely redecorate - keep it simple. Although painting the walls a vibrant purple may seem like a rebellious and creative thing to do; bright colours are very hard to acccessorise and are really tricky to paint over. Not to mention you'll get very fed up of it, very quickly! Stick to neutral or pastel shades and go all out with the accessories, you'll thank yourself later.

I hope you've enjoyed this post, let me know how you like to pretty up your room!
