I can’t believe it’s May and we’re 5 months into 2015 already, this year is going SO quick. I’ve been so busy lately, working and running around to see family. Before I know it I’ve been neglecting my room and it’s not longer the princess paradise I know ant love.
It’s so right that a messy room creates a messy mind, so its about time we get this sorted. I thought I’d share a few of my favourite touches to make your room a princess paradise too!
Light colours. I made the mistake a few years ago of painting one of my walls in my room black. It was so dark and dingy, and I slowly grew to hate it. 5 coats of white paint later, and I have 4 white walls again. It’s created a much more light and airy space to work with and I love it.
Flowers and plants. If you’re a busy girl like me, it’s probably not a good idea to get something that takes a lot of looking after. You can pick up silk flowers from a lot of affordable shops like Wilkinsons or Dunelm, some colourful flowers can brighten up the corner of any room! A lot of supermarkets also sell indoor plants, I picked up a mini rose plant which I have on my window sill.
Fairy lights. I hate using the main light in my bedroom, I’d much rather light from a lamp or fairy lights. Fairy lights are my ultimate fav, I have them around my headboard and some hung along with some pictures. They make me feel like a princess.
Candles! Jar candles, nice scented candles, little tea lights in your favourite candle holder. I love candles, you can never have too many! My all time favourite Yankee candle is the Cherry Vanilla one, and I always have one in stock for when my current one runs out. I feel like candles are just so mellowing and they’re a must.
What makes your room feel like a little paradise? I’d love to know!
