{Welcome to Our Room}

Hello, dears! How goes life?

Megan and I recently changed our bedroom a bit, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to do a room update. (You can see my first new room redecorating post here, and second here.) I also wanted to mention a few tips and tricks for making your bedroom fresh and bright and pretty – not that I’m an professional interior designer or anything. XD

Ahem. Let us begin the tour. Won’t you step inside?

room 1 (1280x854)

Welcome to our room. Please pardon Jinx, our cat. He looks like a black boulder. O.o

room 2 (1280x865)

Right next to the door we have Megan’s bulletin board filled with random stuff, but mostly pictures and NeedtoBreathe lyrics. XD

room 3 (1024x1280)

(Ugh, sorry for the AWFUL picture quality! This corner doesn’t get much light.) Our small but tiny bookshelf holds on top of it a framed graphic print (made by Megan) and a spiky plant that resembles green onions but is nonetheless cute. The middle shelf is currently missing the KOTLC series because our cousin is borrowing it. 😉

room 5 (720x1280)

The mantel doesn’t look much different than it has in previous bedroom posts, so…

room 13 (1280x854)

And now we’re at the dresser. More on that later.

Okay, now for the light garland! I love the string of lights above our bed. ♥ (They’re from Hobby Lobby, by the way.) They aren’t fairy lights, but I think they’re just as pretty. It makes the room so cozy and, well, aesthetic. 😛 Oh, and that’s Megan, listening to Christmas music BEFORE IT’S EVEN THANKSGIVING. *sigh*

Interesting story: Shutterfly had a “101 free 4″X4″ prints” deal (you had to pay for shipping, though), so Megan and I ordered it! :O Megan wanted to hang some of the pictures in between our lights, and while I was a bit skeptical at first, I think it looks lovely now! All of the photos up here are of our bunnies, except one of Megan and one of me. 😉

This is my bed, starring Jinx (again), an elephant I made in sewing class, and a canvas I painted when we first redecorated.

DSC_0350 (853x1280)

Also starring… a quilt made in sewing class and Megan looking at the iPad.

DSC_0354 (1280x853)

I wanted to make a picture mosaic with some of the other 101 photos, and I’m rather pleased with how this turned out too! I chose only the cool-colored pictures from our selection so it wouldn’t be too overwhelming.

room 6 (853x1280)

room 12 (1280x853)

While we’re here, this is our beloved fuzzy cube. Pretty much the only change in this corner is the (also fuzzy) needle-felted fox I made. He may feature in a later post. 😉

room 7 (1280x853)

Now for our plants. One day we had a friend over and since we were bored, we decided to name all of our plants. Heh.

First up we have Rapunzel, who is rather hard to get a picture of, but her hair reaches all the way to the floor. Impressive, no? (Also, yes, those are random clay things in the pot.)

room 4 (939x1280)

On the dresser we have Finley…

room 9 (1280x1280)

And Einstein, a new addition. Don’t you think the name fits perfectly?

room 8. (1280x1280)

Here’s Einstein’s brother, Sylvester.

room 16 (1280x853)

This is Droopy.

room 15 (1280x1280)

This is not a plant. This is me. Hiiiii! 😀

room 17 (1280x853)

And then we have our plant rehabilitation center (aka, the spot in front of the window). In the foreground we have Cottontail (it’s a Rabbit’s Foot fern), and then in the background we have Puff the Magic Fern on the left and Miss Crispy on the right. *sigh* I do hope they recover.

room 11 (1280x854)

And… that’s about it for the room tour! Before we leave, here are my three simple but helpful tips for a fresh, clean look. I hope they help!

  • My tip-top top tip is to declutter your room. This is seriously the best thing you can do. Go through your stuff – the little knickknacks lying on your dresser, papers poking out from your bed, clothes piled on the floor – and either give away the extra, throw it away, or put it into a nice container, box, or basket so it doesn’t sprawl all over the place. Don’t like cleaning your room? Trust me, this will help. If you don’t have as many things to get out, you won’t have as much to put away!
  • Okay, that probably wasn’t a very popular tip, huh? XD But you try it and tell me if I’m wrong! Anyway, my next tip is to choose a limited color palette. Our colors are mint green, white, and purple, but mainly mint green (obviously). Keeping your decorations to two or three different colors really helps your room look more fresh, clean, and pretty, especially if you choose light colors.
  • Which reminds me. Choose a light color scheme. Now, this isn’t necessary of course, but light, bright colors like white, mint, light blue or pink, etc. make your room seem fresher, bigger, and even cleaner! This is important for the wall color, especially. But if you can’t change your wall color, don’t worry, the first two tips will still help a ton, and you can make your decorations are light. 😉

Well, that’s all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed the room tour. 🙂 What was your favorite part of our room? If you’d like to see more details on the parts I didn’t cover, make sure to check out my other room posts (linked at the top of this post).

Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day, dears!

  1. I noticed that you have the Penderwicks books on the shelf, LOVE that series so much! it made me cry so much…

    Anyways, your room is gorgeous, I love all of your plants and plant names, and did you ever decide on a name for the fluffy cloud? Just curious 😉

    1. I know, I love that series too! ♥
      Thank you so much! Hee hee. Oh yeah, I haven’t officially decided but I think it will be either Cloudio or Cloudia. XD What do you think?


      1. You’re welcome! We just painted it a color similar to yours, but a little bluer. We added curtains that we’ve had for eight years yesterday. XD I still need to declutter, though. 😛


  2. ALLISSSSSONNN I LOVE YOUR ROOMMMM!!!! (Why do like all my comments on here start off in caps? CAUSE EVERYTHING YOU POST KILLS ME I GUESS XD )
    The colors and decorations are just so fresh and cheerful and it’s fun and adorable and happy and AGH! My room is just like – pink, purple, cluttered, basically a pink storage room with a bed. It needs to be re-done so badly. O_O XD
    But it would be SO much work to re-do my room and cost a lot of money, so I don’t know. Maybe I’ll just wait for a nice room until I move out someday LOL! XD

      Ahh, thank you SO much, dear. Heh heh, well sometimes even just rearranging your room makes it feel redone, but I know what you mean about the expense. 😉

  3. You’re room is so aesthetic! ❤ I seriously love interior design and would redo my room monthly if I had the means. Your tips are great! Lighter colors make a room feel much brighter. Being able to see where the floor meets the walls in corners also helps it seem more spacious. I actually love decluttering. I'm really into minimalistic style.
    Your photos are always so great! ❤

    1. Thank you super much, Ella! Ha ha, I know, right? I love interior design too! I can’t wait till I get to decorate a whole house someday. 😮 Ooh, thanks for the tip! That’s a good point. Hee hee, me too! I like minimalistic but cozy, if that’s a thing. 😉

  4. So pretty! All of those photos you got are so fun! And so are your plants and their names, hehe. 😀
    Thanks for the tips too! I designed my room when we moved a while back. I like how it turned out… but it’s pretty much always cluttered and messy. I guess I’d better do a good cleaning sometime 😉 .

  5. Wow! I love your bedroom! It’s awesome! I especially like the photograph mosaic! I have a very similar color scheme in my bedroom. You have given me some ideas! I think I need to do some redecorating in my bedroom in the new year! 😉 xx


    1. Thank you so much! Ha ha, we sure did, because the original color was old wallpaper. O.o Yeah, that was a lot of work… Oh, and I’m the oldest. 😉 Hee hee, yes, Jinx is quite the fuzzy blob.

  6. First of all–your room is gorgeous!! And it looks so cozy!! And second of all, I’ve gotta admit something… i’ve been listening to Christmas music too… I’m usually very stricked about not listing to any until after Thanksgiving, but for some reason this year I’m too anxious for Christmas to wait!!


  7. Very nice! I love the picture of Clementine on Megan’s bulletin board. ❤ I really like the photo and lights garland. Little hanging lights are so fun to have around. Last Christmas I put up blinking lights on the stairs' banister, and since there was extra lights on the string, some of them went in my room. 🙂 Oh, and speaking of Christmas, Megan, it is way too early to be listening to Christmas music! I think it's cool that you put up a bunch of photos on the wall, too. I'm curious–do you ever have troubles with them falling down? What do you put them with? I use masking tape to put up posters and stuff, but they often fall down.
    Since I don't do a whole lot in my room, it doesn't get that messy, but since there is so much stuff in it (three dressers, two floor shelves, one bunkbed and another bed), it doesn't always look especially nice. But maybe that's really just because I use the unused bed for a storage spot?
    Anyway, this was a great post, and really enjoyable to read. Your bedroom looks so pretty and fresh! 🙂

    1. Thanks! Hee hee, that’s Megan’s favorite picture of her. 😉 Thank you – so do I! Ooh, that sounds really neat! I KNOW, YOU TELL MEGAN THAT. HUMPH. I mean, it’s not even THANKSGIVING! XD
      Thank you! Yeah, a few have fallen down so far, but I didn’t tape them up as securely as I could have. 😉 I just used Scotch tape, actually, although I think masking or painter’s tape would work great as well.
      Ha ha, well that is a lot of furniture! So do you share your room, I’m supposing?
      Thank you so much, Sassafras! 😀 ♥


      1. You’re welcome! Hehe, well, it’s a good picture. 😉 YES, I know!! It’s not Christmastime until at least December 1, for me anyway. I am looking forward to it, though. 😉
        Yes, I share a room with my older sister, but only when she’s home (she’s in college). Next semester, though, she’ll be home, because she’s doing student teaching near where we live. 🙂
        I used to share a room with both of my older sisters, but since I’m second to youngest, they have left home and I haven’t. 😉


    1. Thank you so much! Ha ha, I think we just got them from my aunt. They were originally bunk bed frames (well, they still can be), but we took them down and painted them. And thanks! I like it too! 🙂

  8. My mom has been listing to Christmas music since last week. (it’s playing right now actually.) I’m thinking, “Mom, Thanksgiving is not even for another two weeks!”

  9. I lovelovelovelove your room!!! The color palette, the pictures, the plants, the décor… so beautiful!! Me and my sister’s room is so crowded. Its a small room anyway, but its twice as small now that there is a large sewing table (my sister’s) jutting out into the room, along with the bed we share and her desk. XP
    We should get bunk beds in my opinion. 😐

    1. Thank you thank you thank youuuu! 😀
      Aww, that’s too bad. :/ My little sister’s room is super crowded too, partly because she has a huge bed in the middle. 😛
      Ooh yeah, that’s a great plan! 😉


  10. Ooh I love those lights in your room and that needle-felted fox that you made is so cute! Great names for those plants!
    Tut tut now Megan it’s much too early to be listing to Christmas music!
    Yay I love the fuzzy cube! (or should I say fuse cyoob?)


  11. This was such a lovely post! I will definitely be using some of the tips you used. My bedroom is VERY colorful, so I think having a lighter color would be nice.
    I think the lights are also lovely!
    Ah, cousins borrowing your KOTLC series? That sounds a LOT like someone I know…. (XD that’s me. My friend owns the whole series and I only own Neverseen and Nightfall.)
    All in all, this was a fantastic post!

      1. Your welcome!
        I found Nightfall to be fantastically fantabulously amazingly AWESOME! I finished it in two days 😂
        Thank YOU for posting this! I loved your room!

  12. YOUR ROOM IS GORGEOUS. Do you know where Megan got the bulletin board? 😀

    I recently moved and I’ve been having fun decorating my new room. I’ve been using my old decor though and I’m going to buy some new stuff soon.

    1. AHH THANK YOU. Nope, have no idea. Mom had it before she did, and she probably just picked it up somewhere randomly. Megan covered the frame with washi tape herself, though. 🙂
      Ooh, that sounds so fun! 😀


  13. Your room is so beautiful!!! *Slightly jealous* My favorite part is the PICTURES, I LOVE printed pictures and lights and eek! And the photo wall too, I ❤ the photo wall! How much is shipping on said 101 photos? I am intrigued. 😛 LOL! 😀


    1. Ha ha, thank so much, Livy! XD I KNOW, I LOVE THAT TOO! 😀 I think the shipping was somewhere around $10. Sadly, the free offer isn’t valid anymore. :/ But that’s okay, because the prints are still quite inexpensive normally (only a few cents each, I think)!


  14. YOUR ROOM IS SO PRETTY. And the plants are so cute awww! Shutterfly seems to have a lot of photo deals, but I’ve never heard of that one before. That’s awesome! I used to hang photos in my room but it didn’t go very well. 😛

    1. THANK YOU THANK YOU. I knoooow, plants are adorable. XD Yeah, they have so many deals, I’m not sure how they stay in business. O.o Anyway, ha ha, well that’s too bad. :/


  15. *peers into bedroom*
    *covers face*

    It seems like everyone is making their rooms all aesthetic and awesome and I’m like, “my room is doing well when there isn’t dirty laundry behind the door lol”. Yours looks lovely, though. :’)
