RENOVATED MINIMALIST ROOM TOUR

Minimalist rooms and monochrome bedrooms are very in, why? Because they un-doubtingly look elegant, or as I like to call, ‘finished school and need a more grown-up room’ theme. What? It’s relatable! 😛 Pinterest is full of minimalist room decor ideas and simple light colour themes. I loved the idea as it makes me feel grown up!

I absolutely LOVE how my room turned out and now have the perfect selfie background! I can happily say, my room is goals yo! But if I can do it, you can do it too! It took me days to put this together, actually weeks!

It begun by cleaning out my old room which had a very girly theme with bright pinks and neon colours everywhere that didn’t even go together! I chucked out so much junk and sold some of my furniture on sell&buy websites. My old room was very tiny with no bathroom in which I moved to the guest room, much bigger and has it’s own bathroom and walk in closet. LOVE it!

Here was my ‘new’ room still old before I re-did it;

The guest room was used as more of a ‘junk’ room when no guests were coming to visit. The walls were a beige colour that I absolutely could NOT stand, yuck! And the bed was overly large for the size of the room. QUITE the opposite of a minimalist room!

Aaaaaaaand this ladies and gentlemen, is my room!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Throughout my room tour, you may have noticed all the plants. Initially, I had my mind set on artificial flowers but mum literally put her foot down and just wouldn’t let me buy any artificial ones! And now I know why, having real plants just makes the atmosphere feel so much fresher and creates a lively feel – and they release oxygen. Definitely try having an indoor plant in the house!

I will have more room tours coming soon as my next few weeks are booked doing my parents’s bathroom and sister’s room! Eeeep excited already!

Thank you for your patience and much much love!

And that’s all I have for you today my SAS-ies! I GREATLY AND IMMENSELY appreciate your support and lovely words! Thank you for being an amazing audience and wouldn’t have reached here without you! xxx
