I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was busy with a home-improvement project. And now for the big reveal…I repainted my bedroom! I was craving some new vibes and I wanted a warm, neutral color that would match anything. My family can testify to the fact that I have painted my room way too many times– it has been pink, blue, yellow, purple, and now, finally, a subdued beige. My walls were originally a purple color called Breathtaking from Sherwin-Williams. While the color is beautiful, it was a little young for me and was beginning to fade from the sun. I decided it was time to paint my room a mature, neutral color to match my gold and white theme. The paint color is called Himalayan Trek by Benjamin Moore. It changes with the light, but so far, I have been very happy with it.
Big disclaimer here: I am not writing this post to brag. I understand that I am very fortunate to have my own room, and I am very thankful for that. This post is purely to provide some decorating inspiration and share my hard work with you all!
Special thanks to my Pop for helping me paint, and to my family for putting up with all the noise, ladder-hauling, and paint fumes!
Here are some pictures of the finished result:
My desk area: My Pop and I put together this desk from Target a few years ago. I try to keep the desktop pretty bare so that I have plenty of room to work. I have my laptop, my clock, a pencil cup from Target, a candle (smells sooo good!) and a light-up star which oddly enough is from American Eagle Outfitters.
My lovely bookshelf! I accessorized it with some of my favorite books and some of my tech equipment. I also added touches like the fake plant and vase from Target, a picture frame of my bestie Cristina and I, a lantern and a necklace hanger from Michael’s, and a motivational sign from Francesca’s. I apologize for the low quality of this picture- my camera may have been a tad bit out of focus!
Another angle of my bookshelf and floor lamp; the bird cage decoration is from Kohl’s, and I use it to hang up personal photos and memories.
I love that textile on the wall- it’s so cozy! All three wall decorations are from Target! I spy with my little eye…a kitty!
All of my bedding is from Target and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I added some fairy lights from Michael’s for a cozy glow. My bedside table is from World Market, and your girl put it together herself! The lamp is also from Target and it is so chic! My curtains are Twilight curtains from Kohl’s- sort of like blackout curtains, but not quite.
This little corner of my room has my full-length mirror and a storage ottoman from Target. I call this mirror my “Magic Mirror” because I swear, it takes off a few pounds. My ukulele chills in the corner- I’ve been learning to play! Thinking about posting a cover soon…thoughts? The rest of my room is just my hallway door and my closet door.
That’s all for today! Let me know what you guys think. 🙂 I love decorating and home renovations, so this project was fun for me!
Thanks for reading- I hope you have a wonderful day!
