10 Ways to Pump up Your Mood (with Chic bedding and more)
If your bedroom is starting to feel drab and unexciting it is perhaps time to revamp your d’ecor and give your room a burst of freshness – change that with 10 Ways to Pump up Your Mood (with chic bedding and more) . Here is how you can change the mood and feel of your bedroom without spending too much money.
1 Musical Chairs?
Rearrange your bedroom furniture, trying out several different looks until you achieve a layout that you are happy with. You will be surprised at how dramatically different your bedroom can look with the same furniture and accessories moved around, especially if you have only ever had your furniture in one arrangement.
2 Heap of Cushions
Add a zany and cheerful pile of cushions to your bedroom, on the bed or even stacked on the floor as a kind of informal floor mat. Choose cushion covers that match or harmonies with your bedding to achieve the best, well-put-together effect that you can. For getting a hold of irresistible cushions, my top favorite spot is Yorkshire Linen Co.
3 Color Scheme
Choose your décor colours and implement them throughout the bedroom. Pick out several bedding sets that play out this color scheme and refresh them often to keep the décor looking fresh and new. (Plus, there is nothing quite like the feeling of slipping between crisp, clean new sheets!)
4 Décor Theme Bedding
There is a wealth of variety in the fabric world, thanks to modern techniques and methods and you will be easily able to find the perfect bedding for your needs and desires, from tiger photographs to fantasy landscapes and just about everything else in between! Choose bedding that appeals to you as you will be the one who sees and uses it the most, and buy two or three different sets so that you can change the emphasis and mood in your room simply by changing your bed linen!
5 Pattern it Up
Invest in some fun and funky wall and furniture decals with which to adorn your bedroom. If you choose, for example, animal print stickers, why not invest in a chic animal print bedding set to help pull your décor together and enhance the focal point that is automatically created by the bed? If you have, as advised above, several different bedding sets, then you can choose stickers and decals that pick out one or two of the main colors of each set; thereby ensuring that your décor always looks good. For extra ordinary wall art options, my personal favorite is Graham & Brown.
6 Message From You
Spread the word in your bedroom, by putting up a chalkboard or wipe-board on which you can jot yourself positive and affirming sayings, adages and reminders. It is even possible to find bedding that features such messages and with so much positivity around you, you cannot fail to feel pumped and ready to take on the world!
7 Pop Out!
A pop of bright colour always serves to lighten the room of a bedroom. If you love bright colours but can only handle one at a time in your décor , why not get several different but still cheerful bedding all each featuring a pop of one of your favorite shades? In this way you can completely transform the room quickly and easily whenever you feel like a change. Include bright in accessories like cushions, pictures or photographs so as to carry the colour throughout the whole room.
8 Window Dressing
Your curtains brighten the room and can enhance the décor scheme. For a complete and polished look, choose curtains that exactly match your bedding to make the whole room look properly finished.
9 Cast a Cheerful Light
The addition of a coloured lamp shade can literally cast a different shade over your room! Soft pink or peach is especially flattering to human skin, while blue or yellow can make us look ill, so do bear that in mind before simply buying a shade in your favorite hue! Make sure that you can layer the light in your bedroom, with bright overhead lights for work and tidying and softer, kindlier lights for getting ready to sleep.
10 Place for Everything
This cannot be emphasized enough – have a place for everything that you want to keep in your room. Once everything is neatly put away, the bedroom will look tidy and welcoming, but if there are features that do not obviously belong there you risk making the room look cluttered and messy. Likewise, always make your bed in the morning, as a crumpled unmade bed does not enhance the décor – no matter what 🙂
