Room Diaries: Mood Boards & Inspiration

Wednesday, 19 February 2020

This has been my room for 7 months now.

It's a little too big for one and somehow always messy, but much better than sharing a cramped room with my sisters. I was planning on saving up to do a giant room renovation. However, I quickly realised doing it all in one go is a lot of money. 

So, I decided to do the Room Makeover in smaller, manageable parts. In this new series; Room Diaries, I'm going to show how I'm going to - or try to - update and renovate my bedroom! Starting off with compiling inspiration and creating a mood board!

The mood board was designed using Melissa Carter's free template which I desperately needed. I've compiled a Pinterest board with my favourite room inspirations. None are perfect but they have little bits and pieces that I'm planning to steal.

  • Artworks
Having artwork feels like an essential part of adulthood thus I want some artwork in my room. Specifically this giant art piece by Photowall. It was gifted to me but I still have no idea where to put it. I'm hoping to find its place before the end of the year.

  • Neutral Tones with Pops of Blue & Gold
Keeping in mind that my room is fairly dark and masculine due to the wood. I would like to change that. Whether that would mean removing the mood and repainting it or something else, I'd like to stick with neutral tones with pops of blue and gold. I just like the colors together.

  • Easy &Accessible Storage
There are a lot of closed cabinets that I don't know what to do with. Currently, there are hiding photo albums and unseemly junk. I'm hoping to declutter within the next few months then perhaps purchase some cute storage for easier organisation.

  • Mirrors
Cause y'know, vanity. That and mirrors are an easy way to bring light into the room. Since I only have one source of light (that's covered by trees) through the windows, mirrors cross the room would be great to bounce off light into the room.

  • Maybe 1 or 2 Plants
I don't know whether I'm ready to be a plant mom. I can barely take care of myself. That being said, I would like a few to spruce up a room and maybe give myself a lifeform to care for. I need to start researching easy-to-care plants soon.

I made a video if you'd rather watch! 

This Room Diaries is a long process to help make this bedroom feel like a home. While I don't know how long I'm staying here yet, it's better to start now than never. Maybe the next part will be about decluttering. 

Have you ever redecorated your room?

with love,
