Do you get fed up with your bedroom looking the same year in year out, but haven’t got the money to decorate it? Well there is no need to call the decorators in as you can do it yourself and I don’t mean by painting the whole thing yourself. All you need to do is make a few simple changes.

It’s best to start with a neutral colour. Keep all the walls and bedding white, cream or even pale grey, as long as it’s plain and a colour that will go with any other colour. Then you just add touches of colour to make it look different. You can even do this as the seasons change, think pinks and yellows for spring and summer and brown and reds for autumn and winter. My dream bedroom would be plain white and grey with touches of pale pink.

Bedding & Throws

You can keep your quilt plain white and add colour with accessories or make your quilt the focal point of your room by buying a brightly coloured cover. Julian Charles has a wide range to choose from. Big chunky throws are perfect in the colder months, not only do they keep your warm but choose a colour that accentuates the rest of the room.

Cushions & Curtains

Adding lot’s of different cushions in different shapes, sizes and with different textures in your chosen colour theme can make you bed look completely different. Adding some nice curtains to match the cushions will also help bring your room together.

Having a big canvas above your bed in your chosen colour can make the walls really stand out and can also make the bed more of a focal point. And pictures with family and friends really give it a nice cosy look.


Either keep your carpet a plain neutral colour or get wooden flooring and add a nice pretty rug. Different sizes and textured rugs will also give the room a different feel.

Maybe the most important detail is the accessories. Add candles, vases, flowers, ornaments, baskets and lamps all around the room  in the same colour as your theme.

When you get fed up of the look of your room simply take all the accessories and store them or give them away and replace them with new accessories in another colour. And there you go, a whole new bedroom without even having to lift a paintbrush up.

  1. Some great advice here, our bedroom seriously needs a makeover, it’s very boring. Thanks for the ideas

  2. Some great ideas there, my bedroom really needs updating, but I don’t have the time for a full makeover at the moment……..but maybe I don’t need one!

  3. We totally agree that bedding, throws and cushions are the easiest and quickest way to update a bedroom without getting the paint brush out! And it’s so easy to change if you get bored x

  4. My daughter is just moving in to her own flat, and when I went to visit her, she was so eager to decorate and add colour to the magnolia walls. And I see why, it is pretty hideous. But she’s just starting out, and cannot possibly find the time or money to do all that decorating; so your advice is exactly what I was saying to her only yesterday. Lots of colour and styling added to your room with simple items, like cushions, throws, rugs etc.

  5. Some lovely ideas. I’m all about neutral walls and making changes by accessorising. I’ve currently got Paris wallpaper in my room but it’s grey which is always neutral in my eyes so I can easily change the look of the room. My current bedding is cats on plates. It’s hard to explain if you haven’t seen it but it works!!

  6. Great Tips! It always feels nice when you get a new duvet cover. We added a rug to our room too and it made a massive difference. I recently added some new lighting and that made it feel more cosy too. #FamilyFun

  7. See my bedroom is just a dumping ground it’s inspiration like this that makes me think I should make it into more of a haven for me and the man. We’re about to add a cot to the mix for the next 6 months or so though so maybe we will hold off grown up space for a bit longer. My room is green and magnolia so loads of green cushions could work!

    ‪Thank you for linking up to the #familyfunlinky‬

  8. Some fab ideas, I do this with our children’s bedrooms, they are painted blue and pink, but I change bedding, light shades walls stickers canvases etc xxx

  9. I neeed to give my bedroom a makeover, it’s all so old and boring in there. Throws and cushions are an easy way to do it too xx #familyfun

  10. There are some great ideas here- another idea is to paint old picture frames white and put in wallpaper in two or three to give the room some colour or off set large areas of one colour to match accessories or bedding

  11. Some great ideas there! TK Maxx is a great place for picking up cheap bedding/cushions/ornaments that can make a difference!
