Whether as an adult graduate student or as a first…
When decorating our homes, we so often focus on transforming those common spaces – entries, hallways, living rooms, family rooms – that we often forget to set aside funds for all the bedrooms!
If you’ve found yourself without a bottomless pit of money, don’t despair. Explore this brilliant collection of budget friendly bedroom decorating ideas.
Whether you’re coupled up, footloose and fancy free or complete with a family of teenagers, children or babies you’ll find something to suit your sleep style.
It’s quite extraordinary how easy it can be to adopt a sense of style without breaking the bank.
As a couple the focus is often on nurturing your relationship, so keep things simple in the bedroom by accessorising with items that have a big cuddle factor – like pillows. You can never have too many pillows. Layer them and use styles that suit your shared personalities – modern, minimalist, nautical, romantic chic, rustic chic and even super classy.
Celebrate your love by displaying a canvas photo print of your wedding day on your bedroom wall. Or step up the class factor by adding a second hand or ‘vintage’ bedside table. Do some DIY and paint it white for some French chic style.
