5 Easy Ways to Give Your Bedroom a Mini Makeover

A lot of people use the saying, "new year, new me" as their motto during the first few weeks of each year, but how about "new year, new room"? It's no secret that I love to re-decorate whenever I get the chance to, but it's actually a really good idea for a new year! Whether you just freshen things up or make some big changes (like me... it's becoming a problem, ha!) there's no better time than a new year to change things up and create a quick and easy mini room makeover. Here's my favorite ways that I've used to freshen up my bedroom in the past few days:

Organize and de-clutter. Just like spring cleaning, this is the perfect opportunity to take a few hours out of the day to declutter your bedroom. It's seriously amazing the way you feel after throwing things away, bagging things for charity, etc. I know I can't be the only one whose bedroom looks like a war zone after the holidays... Wrapping paper, opened gifts, boxes; it feels like it's never ending! I always de-clutter then organize, and I use things like storage containers for my closet, new desk organizers and scarf hangers for scarves and even jeans. It really never fails to amaze me just how good a clean room feels!


Get a new duvet and sheet set. There's nothing better than fresh, crisp sheets! Something about a brand new set is so refreshing. And a new patterned comforter/duvet cover can change the entire look and feel to a room. I love the way this sheet set feels and the pretty colors they come in. I almost always pick up a new set each time I go to Home Goods to have lots of spares! This floral duvet cover is on my list... I've been eyeing it and it's just too pretty to pass up!


Add in new pops of color with new throw pillows. One of my favorite things to shop for are new throw pillows. I'm a complete pillow hoarder and I admit it! They can be pricey, so if you're not sure you'll love something or just don't want to spend a small fortune, you can easily go to the fabric store and find fabric you like to cover old pillows. I've done this and it's super easy to do and you'd be amazed at how inexpensive nice fabric can be! I love the tassels on this pillow and the ombre faux fur on this pillow (seriously, this is in my cart right now).


Add new wall art. I'm in the midst of starting to create a legitimate office for myself (finally!) so I've been looking for new wall art. I always buy things I see and like - mostly in Home Goods - because I'm a decor hoarder, obvi. ;) Oliver Gal is one of my absolute favorite artists and my newest favorite print is this one that I ordered in the biggest size possible to be a center piece on my office wall. I *LOVE* it! You can try to mix abstract prints like this one too - I love the shimmery touches!


Add a fun, unexpected piece. If you have the room, an unexpected but fun focal piece can make a huge difference and look super pretty. I absolutely *love* the idea of displaying a clothing rack in your bedroom with some of your favorite dresses/tops etc. on it! Again, if you have the room, it can be such a fun statement piece and a way to display your favorite wardrobe pieces. This version from Target is only $25 and it's on wheels! If you don't have the room for something like this, I love filling a pretty vase with flowers because it makes just as much of a statement (here's a less expensive version!).

  19. I love decluttering and redoing my room every new year too! Im glad I'm not the only one. This year I moved into a new house with my fiance so I was forced to declutter and minimize my stuff and start over fresh. It is really so satisfying having all of your spaces clean and tidy. Great tips!

  31. I try to practice some of these every so often - like adding new pops of color to replace pieces I got sick of. We're naturally minimalists, so decluttering happens pretty frequently, but I also have the tendency to make spaces seem cold and too stark. The duvet/bedding is SUCH a good one though! We recently updated our bedding and it feels so good. I'm also working on our home office! I hope you share the outcome!

  32. I love all of these ideas. Making small changes to your room can make a huge difference. I've done some decluttering over the past year and really did change the way my room looked. Sometimes moving things around and adding a few new pieces of decor can make you feel like you're living in a whole new space.
