I am a major homebody so my space being cosy is of utmost importance to me. I’m always switching up my space and trying to make sure that it’s nice and comfortable for me. I like I get back in from university or being out and feel relaxed. My bedroom is the hub of my life. It’s where I spend about 60% of my week in my bedroom, well, maybe a little more but I’d rather not admit that. Anyway, in this little post, I’m here to give you some tips on how your space a little cosier.
|My little DIY project, I was honestly so proud of it even though it took me about fifteen minutes total.|
ADD SOME PERSONAL TOUCHES
I love adding sentiment touches around my space, I’m such a soppy git so I love being able to look at things and have them elicit some sort of meaning or emotion in me. Even just adding a few of your favourite photos on your wall can really make a huge difference. I did this not too long ago, my wall had been bare for so so long and I just needed to add something to it so I made it a little photo wall full of my favourite photos. Of course, you don’t have to do this with photos but it’s a cute little idea.
CREATE SOME POSITIVE VIBES ALL AROUND YOU
For me, my room is my place I escape to when I am feeling any negative emotions and this is because I know most of the things in there make me feel happy are. I have my comfy corner on my bed where I can read, my photo wall which makes me happy to look at, my diffuser that lets out nice smells into the air in my room etc. When I buy or make almost anything to my room I look for it being something that’s going to fill me up with good vibrations.
PUT YOUR TWIST ON THINGS
This has to be one of my favourite things to do when I’m cultivating my space. I add my own touch to things always. Doing little things like this is actually so fun, the photo used on this blog post was a little project I did recently where I just added a few photos of my boyfriend and I onto the string of lights with some cute little pegs. It cost me all together under £5 because the photos were from FreePrints, the fairy lights were only £2 and the pegs were £1.
POP SOME PLANTS AROUND YOUR ROOM
Houseplants have a lot of great benefits to them, other than being aesthetically pleasing. They make your air clearer, help deter illness and they apparently make you focus better. Anything that might boost my productivity is something I want to buy into. My room felt so much nicer when I started adding plants, I love how my windowsill is full of my little plant children.
MAKE YOUR SPACE FUNCTIONAL
I know this doesn’t sound like it adds to cosiness but hear me out, okay? A space with no function is a space full of stress and discontent. When my room is a mess, there is no chance of me being able to concentrate, because there’s no function in mess. However, when I know where my things are I feel much more at ease. I know that the function of my top drawer in my desk is to hold my university folders, so when I need to use them that’s where they are. I could go on but you get my idea.
Thank you so much for reading this post! I thought it was a nice one to post in the wintertime when we want to be inside and all cosy. I love writing stuff like this and I hope you enjoy reading it. Have a lovely day and stay beautiful.
