Brighten up! Decorating hacks for EVERY bedroom – big or small

by

Now that we've finally said goodbye to Christmas, the end of winter won't be far behind.

If you're looking to revamp your bedroom to embrace the light, fresh vibes of spring, then we have a few tips to get you started.

Make 2016 the year you create a living space you love.

1. Mix it up with prints
Forget about matching because vibrant clashing prints are perfect for brighter days. So mix and match bright florals, tribal prints and bold colours for a lively and fresh look.

 

 

2. Use neutrals as a base
White and cream are the perfect base for all of those fun and bold colours. So when it comes to basics like bedsheets, curtains, walls and ceilings, keep it crisp and clean.

 

 

3. Small touches can make all the difference
If you don't have the time (or the permission from your landlord) to fully re-decorate, bring life into your room with simple touches like artwork and printed cushions.

 

 

4. Let the natural light in
Replace dark curtains with white or sheer ones, clear beauty products, photo frames and other clutter off your window sills and really open up the room. If you don't have large windows, hang or prop a large mirror against a wall to make the room appear bigger and brighter.

 

 

5. Bring nature to the room
Get a bunch or two of fresh flowers at your local supermarket (once spring hits, daffodils will be oh-so cheap) and pop them in a cute bottle or vase for an instant springtime feel. Just don't forget to replace them after a few days! Alternatively go for some fake flowers and a metallic sprayed branch or two.
