Make Your Room Instantly Cozy!
Sometimes the smallest changes make the largest impact
My Christmas lights above my dresser were pathetically hanging by one nail with half of the lights not shining at all. Which meant I had to use my overhead light that made the ambiance more like a gas station. My bookshelf was full of random items and was used for storage rather than books.
My room felt miserable to be in. It was cluttered and disorganized.
When I come home after a long day, I want to put on my pajamas and curl up in my blankets surrounded by warm lights that make me feel cozy and happy. My blank walls, broken lights, and junky bookshelf were not giving me the happy vibes I needed. When I finally had enough – I brainstormed on how to make my room somewhere I wanted to be.
I started with my blank walls. I picked up a stack of photographs that had been sitting there for months waiting to be used and hung them. This instantly changed how my room felt. It felt less like an apartment and more like my sanctuary.
Next, my bookshelf needed a major redo. I took the random items and placed them inside of an antique suitcase I had and grabbed my favorite books to place in my bookshelf. Cleaning up that bookshelf was such a small thing but it made a huge difference in my room. My room was already cleaner and less junky.
Finally, to the Christmas lights.
The lights definitely needed to be replaced. I drove to Hobby Lobby and bought a 3ft strand of Christmas lights. I hung them so that they were on the wall surrounding my entire room. The aesthetic of my room completely changed, and now gives me that warm and cozy feeling every bedroom needs.
I lit my candle, which was perfectly placed on my bookshelf, full of books and wow it felt so much better! I was shocked at how different my room looked and felt. Now, I look forward to hanging out in my room and I love it so much. I get so excited to finally get home, jump in my comfy bed and lay under the yellow lights with a book in my hand and the smell of a candle burning.
