my bedroom // three tips for a decoration facelift

Hey lovelies! I haven't done one of these posts in ages so I thought it would be fun to revisit the "decorating and storage ideas" post that was really popular (one of the pictures from that post has even got 20K notes on tumblr, what!). My room has changed a lot since January and although it's not quite ready for a full room tour (I'm still sorting out bed issues), I thought I'd share with you a few decorating tips to give your bedroom a snazzy little facelift. 


1. Wooden hangers. There is something so classic and polished about them that really complete the overall look of a wardrobe, you would be amazed at the difference it makes. I've only got about ten wooden hangers but my goal is to have all of my clothes displayed on the wooden beauties. So much prettier than those flimsy plastic things.


 2. My jewellery cabinet was getting a little out of control so I decided to display some of my statement pieces as a decoration. Izzy's Mum gave me these jewellery hangers a few months ago and they have been so handy! The colours of all the necklaces and accessories really add to my bedroom for a positive, colourful vibe and accentuate the colours in my wardrobe.


3. Probably my favourite DIY project yet. I printed out all of my favourite instagram shots at Big W (only costed about 10c per photo) and hung them on a string above my bed. Adds instant colour to any bedroom and it's a constant reminder of happy days, beautiful moments and inspiration that otherwise would have been forgotten.

I hope you enjoyed this post and you're having a splendid week so far. Lots of love xo
