Bedroom decor inspiration #2

So last time I posted a bedroom decor inspiration blog post, everyone seemed to love it, and I thought I should post another one now as I am currently moving back into my university room. Over the past few days I've been unpacking and organising my whole bedroom. As this is my third year at uni, it will be really stressful so I'm trying to get my bedroom as junk-free as possible including taking loads to the charity shop and sending a suitcase home of things that I don't need with my boyfriend! I also have lots of blog posts coming up this week including reviews and photos from Brownstock festival (if I can find my camera cable!) because I haven't been posting much recently as I've been so busy!

I've been addicted to Pinterest again recently. I go through stages of checking it every single day, to stages of not using it for months, but right now I'm on it every day! I get alot of inspiration from other people on Pinterest itself, but if I see something I like on Tumblr or blogs I will pin that photo onto the relevant Pinterest board so I can remember it for later :)

I absolutely love these mandala style Indian throws, and I think they're such a lovely way to brighten up a plain bedroom without having to paint. We're not allowed to change our uni bedrooms and they're bright white, so I have put up a huge elephant throw on one wall and it's made it so much more homely! The colours on this one though are absolutely gorgeous :)

As a fashion design student, I am constantly blue-tacking up inspirational photos onto my wall. I love how the image on the left is all separately pinned to the wall and has bits of fabric and paintings included. If I permanently lived in my uni room and was allowed to do anything to it, I would definitely paint myself a blackboard wall! Even just to remind me to pay my rent, or buy some milk, it's such a nice way to have a blackboard! And it looks great with inspirational images stuck on top of it too!

I really want a sewing room after seeing this picture on Pinterest! I love the idea of using an empty frame and hanging all of your threads, tape measure and scissors all in one place where they're easy to grab! I'm definitely going to have to make a corner of a room like this when I get my own home as this is just so cosy and cute! I also love the look of the neon sellotape in this simple moodboard. Sometimes moodboards can look a bit boring and bland, and especially when it comes to uni work, you want to make it as exciting as possible so I'm gonna try and find some neon tape to add some colour to my moodboards!

When I first saw this image, I thought that the clothes were pattern paper, and I thought that this would be perfect for a fashion students bedroom! Just get a huge set of hooks, and hang whatever you currently need on it. It's like a giant 3D moodboard including clothes, patterns, fabric samples etc! I really want to do this now! I love the big chunky empty frames too, I just love the whole mis-matched look of this :)

How cute are these?! I imagine that you make them by buying those little plastic animals that we all had as kids, gluing them to the lid of a mason jar, and spray painting the whole lid gold, or any colour you like! As an avid fan of pigs, I am definitely going to be creating some pig ones at some point! Mason jars are so cheap and easy to get hold of too, they're only like £1/2 in Ikea and Hobby Craft :)

I absolutely love love love the idea of putting all of your perfumes on show in one place - on top of a cake stand! They would also look super cute on one of the three tier cake stands going from biggest at the bottom to smallest at the top! I love the colours in the image on the right, especially the wooden desk with the white walls. I love the buddha head and the inspirational moodboard too :)

Lastly, but not leastly, these photos were taken from my instagram and are pictures from my actual uni bedroom. I've been trying to organise everything really neatly and so far it is going well! The cacti are a set of three from Ikea which I love, and most of the pots on my window sill are from Ikea too, and are perfect for storing all of your beauty products!

Thanks for reading :)
