As soon as February shows up I’m over winter.
I’m not really sure why.
When it’s Christmas and New Year’s, winter seems romantic and full of pumpkin pie and carols.
All the decking the halls and merriment and stockings hung by the fire go away….
…and it’s just cold.
Cold with overcast skies and winter days.
Even the hot chocolate doesn’t taste as good.
So to cheer myself up and make winter seem a little brighter and lighter, I treated myself to a little bedroom refresh with not ONE but TWO easy budget decorating ideas you can recreate in your own home.
Here’s the room now after my mini bedroom refresh.
(I even added faux peonies to make it happier).
Here’s the room now.
Isn’t it cozy?
Here’s a super simple affordable budget tip that I used to warm it up.
I added baskets. I know what you are thinking. Hello Captain Obvious.
But these aren’t just any baskets.
Somewhere in 2023 baskets just got cuter.
I found this house magazine basket holder with tiny windows.
It’s made out of woven seagrass with a handle at the top.
And speaking of cute baskets?
Look at these house baskets that I found.
The lid lifts off for storage and they are made from seagrass.
The house baskets also make the cutest vases for faux flowers, too.
I’ve been looking at high-end vases that were super expensive.
And then I found this version that’s so much more budget-friendly.
But I wasn’t done.
Here’s where budget decorating idea number two came in.
I added them all over the bedroom, too.
I found these jute flower pots that I used for decorating the spring island last year and tucked these faux peonies into each one.
The little pop of pink all over the room makes me so happy.
The peonies come in sets of four and I tucked each stem into a jute flower pot and then put one on the dressing table, one on the side table and one on the hutch.
I fluffed up the space with a cozy duvet cover at the end of the bed and tucked a throw on the bench and added a new vintage sign over the hutch that I found at a yard sale.
The space is SO COZY.
It’s so warm and welcoming and makes me so happy I almost forgot it was winter.
Here’s to celebrating all the cozy…
….until spring knocks at the door. 🙂
