No spend ways to create a 'tumblr' or girly room

Pretty, girly and cosy/cozy room tips for girly room inspiration, no budget ways to revamp your home, ways to makeover your home without spending any money
For winter or the colder months! I often feel like giving my room a refresh. I absolutely love having my little space, even though it takes me a while to afford bits and bobs to decorate, I have learned to get crafty. Here are some sneaky tips, how to prettify your home or bedroom without spending money. 

. Here are lots of ways to use fairy lights! Wind them around your bed frame, line your shelves with them to look pretty and cosy, for a tumblr-bedroom-esque look. Fill vases with them or pretty cutout
candle holders as a safe option to candles. Placing a mirror strategically can reflect, fill your room with the dreamy glow. You could also hang dozens of them vertically to create a pretty and shimmery wall.

. Find and arrange pretty books or make really pretty and elegant covers for the books you already have. Robert Southey's daughters used to make book covers from leftover pretty dress crinoline and in the
modern day we can use all kinds of things to prettify the books on our shelves, especially if they are growing tatty or we are trying to create a certain theme with our space - see here also for creating a certain dreamy and elegant aesthetic for your blog too!

. Use pretty packaging/gift and shopping bags. My favourites are Pandora gift bags, that come with a pretty pink ribbon too, high end beauty gift bags, Laduree ones or Victoria's Secret with the cute tissue paper. I love to arrange the paper made ones as ornaments and use plastic bags to pop on my door and closet handles. You can even store things in them, ten points for extra storage space yey!

. Multipurpose your drink bottles - old fashioned glass cola or milk bottles can work well for this, tumbler cups, pretty bottles of pink lemonade. You can pop pretty straws inside, they don't have to have a use except look pretty on your dressing table! Bonus points if they have a pretty label attached.

. Raid your kitchen - for pretty mugs for makeup brushes, paper straws, glasses to make candles in, string and any essential oils in your cupboards to make them scented. Search for pretty teapots, teacups to decorate and plates on which to arrange dreamy lotions and fragrances.

. Make a little pin board - choose an area of your room and pin up magazine cutouts, catalogue cutouts, pretty labels from clothes, pretty printouts from the internet... kind of a moodboard. I have some scraps I keep for my little memo board, the opulent gold logo of a paper Laduree bag, any dreamy packaging.

. Move things around around in your room. This is an oldie but a goldie, changing the look and feel of your room by rearranging the bits and bobs, refocusing the flow of energy and optimising the flow and feeling. For a super small space try changing up the cushions, section off little spaces of your room, set up a little reading nook here at the end of your bed or your window, or if you have a telly in your room, maybe move it to a different wall. Rearranging your closet about can give your whole space a fresh look.

. Pop your clothes on display! I love to use wall and over the door hooks and when I purchase a new garment I love to hang it up on my bedroom or closet door, it is so wonderful when something is new and shiny haha and luxurious, even that fluffy pyjama top in the sale. Accessories are also great to display, hang jewellery from wall hooks and bags over the door and on the corner of your bed.

Decluttering is one of my favourite ways to revamp my room too, I don't recognise when it is starting to get cluttered haha, until I move things around for photos, I strip everything back and empty my room and there is space I didn't even know I had. A decluttered space feels so satisfying to be in, especially when you have your most special things on display and mascara on the walls and windows

  3. Oh wow, wasn't expecting a shout out to a romantic poet on a post about interior decor! I didn't know that about his daughters that's pretty amazing!

    Wonderful post, I definitely agree about using clothes and books as display items. I love owning pretty things and so it's only natural that I like to be able to have them visible in my living space.

  9. Yess I love the string lights and pin boards in my room! I also have a Laduree box on my shelf, which used to hold enamel pins, but now I have my enamel pins displayed on my pin board :D I have quite a few candles, but they're all ones I've bought. The idea of a DIY candle in a teacup sounds SO cute!! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
