10 Ways to transform your bedroom.

My life has been so hectic lately that I have barely had time to sit down and give my blog some much needed attention.  To be honest I am having blog withdrawals. I keep thinking of things I want to share but I haven't had time to put it all together and write about it. One of which ideas is my bedroom makeover. After traveling and staying in different hotels I arrived home very inspired. I tend to get a little ambitious and want to do something completing different to my home when I come back, but soon realize I have budget restraints.  I have been trying to think of some cheap affordable ways to change my bedroom around without breaking the bank. On my hunt for some great new ideas I came across these inspiring picks. While doing a little searching I put together a list of things to do to transform your bedroom.

1. Use drapes as a feature behind your bed, they add a warm comforting feel. Plus they can be a great way to hide any unwanted eyesores.

2. Create your own artwork. Most of the art in my home I have made myself. I take photos, paint and draw. I love to frame things that interest me. You don't have to be an amazing artist to make something that stands out. For example, I frame old maps, bold fabric prints and draw or paint something simple. Plus if your anything like me and you grow tired of it in a years time you can always change it.

3. Start with neutral decor and add accents later.

4. Add bold throw cushions when you feel like a bit of colour or something different.

5. Make a picture wall with all your favorite photos. Photos always bring back happy memories.

6. Treat yourself with some flowers.

7. Move things around your home. Sometimes I grab all of the accessories from around my house, put them on the table and then put them all back in a different place. Starting fresh helps you see things differently.

8. Change your bedding layout by mixing and matching different sets.

9. Buy a throw rug. If I had unlimited budget I would buy thousands of throw rugs and change them all the time. They change the look and feel of the room and are great to curl up under in winter.

10. Buy a floor rug. Rugs are a really great way to transform a room. They can be a little more on the expensive side, but there are some cheap alternatives that won't break the bank.
