Happy almost Friday! Remember when I posted my closet tour and promised a bedroom tour soon after? Well it's finally here! I was waiting to do one when my decorating was completely finished, although I don't think that will ever really happen, so I decided to clean up my room and take some pictures! My gallery wall is non-existent, but I do have a few artsy things set up. I'm still thinking about adding some prints on the opposite wall of my desk next to the window (not really shown in the pictures), but we'll see if that happens with how busy I've been lately!
I'm so excited to share my bedroom with you because it's the place where I spend the most time! I do all my blogging, homework, relaxing, etc in here. I think by seeing a person's bedroom you get to know them a little better, so I wanted to give you all a little peak into mine.
My favorite thing about my room has to be my bed. I think the best tip I've ever been given about decorating is to keep your bedding white (or mostly white) and then decorate around it. Every so often I'll switch out which pillows I'm using, but no matter which patterns or colors I use, it always goes with the duvet! Plus it's very useful when I'm trying to take all white instagrams as it makes for a quick and easy background. I also think having a white comforter is just so much easier for, well, life. No matter what my future decorating interests are, my white bedding is sure to go with it, so it ends up saving me money in the long run! I don't want to constantly buy a new comforter every time my taste changes within the next however many years, so I think it's good to invest in a neutral one. If you're worried about it getting dirty, don't, it's actually surprisingly easy to keep it clean!
Another favorite part of my room is my cork board and all the different things I have up there. I tend to have pictures of different inspiring women, a recent addition to my board is Tina Fey and Amy Poehler! I also keep thank you notes, inspirational quotes, and occasionally pictures or short reminders up there if they aren't on one of my many to do lists. When I'm stressed I have a habit of changing up my board; I think it makes me feel better to reorganize and have a little change of scenery in my room.
I also love to have a bunch of cute room accessories, even if they don't really do anything. The first thing I actually purchased for my new room was this ceramic french bulldog! Why did I buy it? I don't know, but it had character and I wanted it. I got these pink agate coasters for my birthday and they're also one of my favorite small items in my room, especially with the gold trim! I always have a glass of water at my bedside and before I got them was just using random scraps of paper as coasters (#college). They're so useful though, and everyone always compliments me on them when they see them!
I tried to link as much as possible for what's in my room, but let me know if I missed something!
