I’ve received so many requests for this post so here it FINALLY is! A room tour to show you all of my decor, where it’s from, and why I’ve chosen to decorate the way I did! I wasn’t exactly sure how I would write this post so it’ll mainly be photos of my bedroom followed with links of similar decor items.
My bedroom walls are a very pale shade of grey with white trimming and all of my furniture is white so naturally I knew I would be decorating it with colours and pieces that pop.
PS. I grew up with the aspiration of one day becoming an interior designer but since that isn’t happening I just decorate my own spaces as if I actually am a complete PRO. I visit Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram and every other site you can imagine to find inspo and then I MAKE IT HAPPEN for myself! It really is the best way to get exactly what you want out of a room.
While I am still a student and I have a certain budget, all of the pieces in my room, from furniture to decoration, are affordable. I’ll caption each photo with the stores that I purchased my decor from, but I can’t guarantee you’ll find the exact pieces.
My bedroom has a gold, black, and white fashion theme and it’s very simplistic. With that being said, let’s get into the goods!
White furniture makes a small room look much bigger than it is in reality. My bed and cubicle shelving unit are both from IKEA.
Instead of inserting boxes into each shelving unit I’ve used three of them for decoration/storage. I like to keep the colours very similar so that there’s a nice overall look and feel in the room. For example, each item in the “decoration” boxes has black and/or white and gold.
Each decorative piece on top of this unit is from Marshalls or Winners. It’s not hard to find great pieces that match and they’re very affordable too. This glass piece on the right was on clearance because one piece of glass is missing, but I’ve angled it so you can’t see! I use this one to store some of my silk scarves because they’re too pretty to tuck away.
This jewelry box is from Marshalls, the Chanel book is from a used-books store, and the Vogue magazine is just an everyday purchase from the drugstore. I’d like to purchase a few more designer books to make this stack higher too! If you visit my Instagram page and screenshot this exact post, you can find similar books on Like to Know It.
Although these pieces don’t have much meaning, they really add something to the room. The abstract shape is from Marshalls and the hourglass is from IKEA. It can be found here.
I’m always on the go AND I love looking at handbags so I recently installed these floating shelves from IKEA to display all of mine! They’re already starting to overflow…but that’s an issue for another time. I really try to make use of the things I have to decorate my room.
My fragrances are some of my most prized possessions so they deserve their very own shelf! This gold mirrored plate is from Marshalls and the white mini vase is from the dollar store.
There’s not too much in this picture and that’s the point. Since there’s already so much going on in my open-closet I felt it was necessary to keep my storage bins to a minimum and use the same colour throughout. The white makes the shelves look more spacious and less cluttered.
This wall was a DIY project that I did recently and I printed out my own posters then purchased cheap frames from the dollar store. I filmed this DIY project so you can find it here. Once again I’ve used my theme colours black, white, and gold to match the rest of the room. Here are a few similar frames from IKEA.
Silverhojden Frame -Gold
Marietorp Frame – Black
My work space is always tidy and I keep it that way by minimizing what I have on my desk. There’s gold accents here and there with my Kate Spade calendar and IKEA lamp and the magazine rack serves as a point of contrast in the room. Unfortunately the white board from IKEA is discontinued so I’ve tagged a similar one.
A few places that you can look for room decor similar to mine is Pottery Barn, Chapters-Indigo, and Etsy! Let me know in the comments if you have any questions.
