Winter bedroom makeover on budget!


Winter is the time when I not only try to cosy up my living room but also my bedroom.
You probably seen remember my first bedroom makeover post (and video?) based mostly on DIY.  This was more fresh and summery when now, I wanted to cool the colours down and make it a little bit more cosy (just so I have the perfect excuse to stay in bed a little longer!) I was inspired by my own post, when done my living room with lovely Suburban Salon, you can read it here (and don't forget to sign u to my Giveaway!)

I have took part in Ocean Loans project to show you that you can re-decorate your bedroom for £50! All it takes is a little bit of imagination, motivation and accessories! If you look into old pictures, I didn’t change much! Literally, all is down to the right accessories!

After!
Winter bedroom makeover on budget!

First up, I have brought into the bedroom my faux fur throw I bought previously in Primark for £12 , it already gave the impression of looking more warm. I have very orange side table and desk lamp, this was for my summery theme of colour pop but I needed to change that. So, I went to Dunelm to do some shopping. Guys, I felt like a child in Disney store! They have cool stuff, for really affordable prices! I was impressed! Many items I've seen there, you can find similar with huge price tag, and here I actually you will get similar items half the price. I mean I do love Fermliving or Bloomville but I am not going to lie, I can’t afford to pay for it. I know ‘Design is for Life’ and as much as I wish to have great designer pieces at home, for now I am trying to get the place looking like ‘’home’’ without breaking into bank!

I have bought these stunning site table lamp for only £29 at Dunelm! I badly wanted copper one but I decided go for copper on my ceiling! £19! You probably seen the inspirations of copper bits on my Instagram now! I have such a great copper crush! Next, I bought these geo tea light holder! I think is great for small spaces as you can see through and it doesn’t take up the whole space of the ‘’table’’ area. The jewellery-box with drawer was a huge hit! I totally love it! Great colour, design and so useful! Last, I bought was the metal wire basket, this is I can keep my camera’s safe from my cats! Literally they like so rude sometimes ;) Especially with my lens! If I leave it on table, Mia will ‘’accidentally’’ try to push it of! I like to have them on display and ‘’grab on go’’ style. I think the basket now is the perfect place! Especially, that I just invested in my new Olympus Pen EPL-7 ( which I pay in installments for it) so would be such a shame get it destroy it by cats!
I couldn’t afford to buy new side table yet, so I have reused my old interior magazines to create this great effect! I have swap my Muuto lamp for these cotton balls lights (so much more Christmassy ). I am still very much on love with my The Great British Home cushions! You can read about them in my 10 common bedroom decor mistakes post. 


You can see the before and after pictures! What you think? Which version is better?

    Funnily enough, I wanted some similar copper cage light shades from Iconic Lighting but they hadn't got them in stock when I was ordering. Great minds think alike :)

  17. Hey Anna darling this post is perfection. I've been living in rented accommodation nearly 9 years and every place came with a different set of rules. Fortunately I've normally got unfurnished places except that is my current place and the furniture is so dark. Do you have any advice as a fellow blogger how I can lighten up my place?

    Thank you

  29. Really love this post! The room is looking amazing and the before and after shots show how a few tweaks here and there can really transform a space! My favourite addition was the creative bedside table you made by stacking some magazines.
