Your bedroom should evoke peace and tranquillity (image: https://www.pexels.com/photo/architecture-bed-bedroom-ceiling-271743/)
Despite the numerous amounts of time your mother asked you to tidy your room when you were a teenager, you are still unable to make the bed before you leave your house in the morning. Every time you visit a friend’s place you are left wondering how others are able to keep their surroundings tidy while you have to be a complete mess.
Perhaps it’s the way you live life and the ease with which you take things or the fact that you just cannot be bothered to put everything back to where it belongs, but one thing’s for sure: your untidy habits are starting to annoy you. Whether it forms part of a New Year’s resolution or you merely want to become a more organised you for the sake of proving yourself you can, this year should be about taking control and learning how to become a tidier individual. Here’s how to decorate your bedroom in style (and keep it that way!).
Paint it an exciting but soothing colour
Different colours affect our moods in different ways. Blue will make us feel focused and calm, yellow will boost our spirits and increase our energy levels, and green has said to make us feel less anxious. With the colour you choose for your interiors being key in determining the way you will feel when you are in that space, it is essential to know what you would like your bedroom to represent. Would you want it to be a place of calm or somewhere where you can feel energised? This is the choice that you have to make when choosing what colour to paint your bedroom. Have a look at the list of colours and the moods they evoke for you to think carefully about the colour of choice.
Furnish it with meaningful pictures
There is nothing more relaxing than laying in bed surrounded by images of the people and places you love. Whether these are framed photographs of friends and family or posters of your favourite destinations, having a bedroom that reminds you of your closest circle of people and visited places is essential, as these reminders will make you feel better when you are sad and blue. Chances are you already own thousands of pictures that you keep on your phone, and if this is the case, you just have to choose your custom backdrop and print these onto the material of your choice. Go on, remind yourself of how blessed you are by having images of your loved ones in your bedroom!
Put everything where it belongs
Finally, and perhaps more to the point is the aspect of organisation. Keeping your bedroom tidy is something that you should do on a daily basis, and while this might not come naturally, it’s true that it can be trained. How? You ask. Just like patience, tidiness is something that requires hard work for it to become part of our routines, so don’t worry if you haven’t managed to become organised yet. It takes time. With this method, you will get closer to your goal.
