I was inspired by Urban Jungle Bloggers and their challenge to make your bedroom green with plants this winter. Not only do plants in the bedroom keep the air fresh, they also make it feel bright and warm (at least to me).
I'm really lucky to have big south-west facing windows that let lots of natural light into my bedroom. So I've filled it with plants. And pretty vintage vessels. And DIY art. And reclaimed wood. I spent no new money on this bedroom refresh - other than purchasing two new plants at half price! The big spider plant was a steal - and it's one of the best for air quality.
New plants needed new containers - so I took a soup cans and wrapped yarn and jute around them. No cost there.
The nightstand was thrifted and refreshed with paint and wallpaper scraps - tutorial here. And the bed frame was reupholstered myself - instructions here.
I made DIY lightbulb terrariums to hang by rope - instructions here.
More vintage vessels hold the rest of my jewellery.
I simply changed out the knobs on an IKEA dresser for a more glamorous look. Necklaces are hung on the wall as ready-made art and organized storage. Faux sheep rugs add texture and keep things looking cosy for winter.
So...are you inspired to refresh your bedroom with plants and all things cosy? No need to spend- just look around your home for things you already have. Good luck!
