My Room Makeover

Recently, my space felt really overwhelming and disorganized, it just didn’t feel like myself. I decided enough is enough, and within a weekend I did some simple changes that completely transformed my space. Not too expensive, and something you can definitely pull off yourself! Take a peek at the before and after photos below! And details on how to DIY.

 

A couple of months ago, I decided to paint the room with Benjamin Moore’s China white, and choose a gorgeous floral wallpaper inspired by Marie Antoinette (one of my favorite historical figures). The room didn’t receive lots of love afterwards, but adding the wallpaper instantly added a touch of glamour.

 

I then added a little metallic basket from Anthropologie to put all my knitting projects, that way they are not floating around. And it creates a nice and personal space for my stuff.

I added a little feminine corner, a pink quartz, which is said to open ones heart, and the baiser beautyfesto book, and a Voluspa mokara candle, my favorite scent. Adding personal details gives the room a little personality, the key is not to overdue it to the point it looks disorganized and hectic.

I keep a trinket tray by my nightstand, (lots of book) and the Baiser beauty oil, which I like to put in my hands right before going to bed.

 

My bed definitely needed a makeover. Before, I only had a comforter and two pillows. I looked pretty simple.  I wanted to really create a more beautiful space, so I added some pink velvet touches and pillows and a quilt with texture to create a more comfy and romantic look.

 

The last thing I did was restore this piece of furniture with my friend from @divicreacion. Since the day I bought it I always felt it looked very fake and the color was not right against my decor. It just felt completely out of place. I loved the concept of having a bunch of drawers, but not the color (see the last picture) So together with @divicrecion we designed and restored this piece using as inspiration the knobs from Anthropologie. The process took 3 days and now I feel like my room really does feel like my own!

Any thoughts? Take a look at the before and after and let me know 🙂
