Lately I've been more than a little bit obsessed with collecting unique and interesting decor pieces for my tiny bedroom. In the past I declined to put too much thought into my bedroom decor since I felt that any efforts should be put into whatever (hopefully larger) space I would eventually call my future home. However, I recently realized that whatever space you live in, be it your minute-sized bedroom or a house of your own, should be regarded as the place that shapes your mood, creativity, and focus. As a result, I've been making efforts here and there to transform this room into my place of relaxation, comfort, and tranquility.
This sundial is a vintage piece from my mom that she received way back in the day as a present from her employer in Singapore.
According to many girls, you can never have enough mirrors in the room. This mentality certainly holds true for myself as I find myself constantly obsessing over the pretty mirrors I often see in stores like Ikea, Urban Barn, HomeSense, and other similar places.
I also bought some pretty prints from a local blogger and artist, Randa Salloum, of I See Noise as decoration for both my room and my bestie AK's. While she, an Audrey Hepburn fanatic, received the Breakfast at Tiffany's print, I chose the Chanel No. 5 Perfume Bottle print for myself. As well, Ikea, a wonderful place for those with tiny decorating budgets, was the perfect place to find a cheap and colourful frame for the meagre price of $10.
I also began scouring dollar stores for potential pieces. The result of such searching was the purchase of this cute quotation board that cost $3 from Dollarama.
A dear colleague of mine who has now returned back to England was kind enough to give me this lovely blackboard, along with a variety of coloured markers and cute magnets. So much neater and easier to clean than chalkboards!
Additionally, I bought this cute zebra-print memo board from Target that should prove useful as an inspiration board for pictures and ideas that I want to keep in mind and close at hand.
Lastly, I found some pictures of myself around the house taken by a friend who is a wonderful photographer and put them where they should be- in my own room.
Are there any ideas that you could share to make a bedroom a more personalized, organized, and stylish space?
