ROOM TOUR / INTERIOR DESIGN ♡ ♡

REDESIGNING YOUR ROOM DOESN'T HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE! 
i've recently re-done my room and wanted to share the results with you all. so if you're interested in how i transformed my room and details + tips and tricks of how i got it to look so different (for a cheap price!) then keep reading ♡



my room before was very cluttered and messy, without any real sense of style. i had tons of posters strung up on my walls and no depth in my room, so i decided to make a change.
before :
after :
what i did -- i took down all of my posters, and put my posts back on my bed to add some height and depth to the room to see when you first walk in. i bought new bedding and pillows from steinmart. (TONS of super cute stuff for a good price!!) i added neutral accessories and night stands on either sides of my bed to further the look i was going for.

the paintings above my bed i did myself, which helped save a lot of money instead of buying wall art.
i had this white pillow previously, but wanted to customize it a little bit with my new color scheme. so i bought burlap and tied a bow around it for a new look!
i also already had the blue pillow in the middle, however it was plain blue and i wanted a pop of my off-white color, so i tied a flower headband around it! (don't judge me because of my stuffed animals. i'm five years old at heart.)
to the left side of my bed, i had dad install a shelf so that i could add some pictures and accessories on my plain wall. i also simply put a white blanket i already had over my chair so that it would look more casual. 

on the other side of my bed, i went with simple accessories and recycled a lamp my mom used to have and switched out the lamp shade. i stacked some books and added a cute little accessory to add some character.

we took apart a 3 part room divider my mom had (from hobby lobby) to add on both sides of my bed to add some extra height to the sides of my bed, and to also bring out some of the darker colors in my room.

to the side of my bed is a little corner with a window seat that i stuck a twin size bed in, with matching bedding. i also have a long mirror propped against my window because that is where i prefer to put on my make up (which i hide behind the mirror) because of the natural light.

with my desk, i stayed with my theme of neutrals and added some more black into the mix. i accessorized my desk with some of my painted canvases,  photos, plants, an open marilyn monroe magazine, books, journals and little accessories i found at hobby lobby.


for my back wall and dresser, i put up 2 black and vintage white posters and once again added a canvas i had made, a frame i made, books, and little accessories!





and thats it! most of the accessories i used i either made, recycled from my mom, or bought for cheap! my favorite stores for crafts and accessories for room design are stein mart, michaels, hobby lobby and target! if you have any specific questions on where i got something / wanna buy a canvas from me, ask me on mallorybeale.tumblr.com :) :)
