Bedroom Styling

Written by: Ellie Cox

At the start of the new year many of us begin to consider refreshing our homes and having a bit of a change up of our decor.

The bedroom is the one room in the house which you can truly make your own and get creative with. As we are spending a lot more time at home at the moment, it's the perfect opportunity to get decorating with a few new and exciting additions!

We have picked out some of our favourite bedroom styling images shared with us on social media, which offer some great ideas on how you can transform your space with bedroom lights and decorations.

For The Little Ones

Personalising your little one's bedroom is so important to make them appreciate the time they spend in it. You can turn it into a fun project for them to get involved with too. Ask them to offer their ideas for what they would like included in their bedroom and put together a mood board to get inspired. This will make it a lot easier when it comes to making a start! Incorporate their favourite colours and feature things which they take an interest in, such as a hobby or their favourite Disney or fictional character. To make it even more individual to them, opt for decorations which include their name or initials as part of the design and make this pride of place within their room. They are sure to love having this claim on their space, giving them a sense of ownership!

Children's lights are ideal for completing their set-up and will also brighten up their room, which is a must during the darker winter months. Our lights are super safe as they utilise LEDs which don't get hot, so there's no risk to your little ones! Star lights work well in any bedroom and our Osby Stars will introduce a delicate glow to shelves or ledges. They are battery operated so can be positioned wherever you like, with the lead cable enabling you to tuck the battery box out of the way. The timer function also allows for fuss free illumination, as they will automatically turn on and off at the same time each night!

Alternatively, festoon lights are ideal for filling spaces on walls or around their bedframe. You can drape and pin them into position with ease, with the option to let the cable partially hang vertically to the floor or draping them from either end of their bedposts.

Introduce Some Colour

If vibrant and quirky decor is your thing, you can instantly achieve this with multi coloured features and vivid lighting to bring it to life! You can still keep your walls quite neutral rather than opting for a stand out colour choice. You can then use this as a base and gradually build it up to add depth to your space, introducing colour at differing heights. Unique items such as a distinctive table lamp or an eye-catching piece of art are sure to bring character. Plants will also inject a splash of greenery and can be paired with a striking plant pot to fit with the theme, or a bright bouquet of flowers sat in a patterned vase works just as well.

Neon lights are another great choice and our Hello Sunshine Neon Light is a sunny and cheerful addition to any bedroom. It can be hung on your wall using the hanging hooks or simply sat on a table or shelf as a display piece. Lights which incorporate dainty detailing are an interesting way to add detail and elegance, whilst continuing with the artistic feel. Our Rose Fairy Lights are the perfect choice for any flower lovers and can be used to accessorise elements of your room. They can be hung from edges of picture frames or mirrors to illuminate them with a soft shine, or simply used as a decoration during the day without being switched on.

Fresh Yet Cosy

Getting the balance between fresh and cosy is key to achieving a subtle but stylish looking bedroom. Incorporating tones such as beige, cream and grey will help maintain a minimal appearance. Simplistic white bedding will help to maintain the freshness of the room and can be styled alongside complementing pillows and throws, to make it super snug and inviting.

Different materials and designs work best with this, adding a slight contrast which ties the room together nicely. The new year calls for a clean out of any clutter you no longer need! Many claim that a messy bedroom can often lead to a messy mind, making you feel more distracted and stressed which reduces the quality of your sleep. Take the time to get rid of any unnecessary bits and bobs in your bedroom, to ensure it's tidy and not too overcrowded. LED candles will also introduce a calming feel to your room and are a safe alternative to real wax candles, with the lifelike flames creating a cosy ambience.

Replace your clutter with some low-key decor, such as natural dried flowers and grasses which will add an effortless touch of texture. Pampas grass is one of our favourites and is ideal for featuring in the corner of your room in a vase on the floor.

Ladders and full length mirrors are also a great way to fill your space and can be paired with fairy lights to make them sparkle. The lights are super easy to style and are ideal for highlighting certain aspects of your bedroom. Micro lights will add a more delicate look and their brilliantly bendable wire offers the flexibility to shape them in anyway you like! These little lights are perfect for introducing a glow to smaller areas or features of the room, with the added benefit of the fine wire being barely visible.
