Romantic Bedroom on a Budget

You can turn your personal haven into a stylish sanctuary with these low-cost ideas.

Romantic Bedroom

 

 

 

The bedroom is the most intimate room in a house, but it can be tricky to design it to your exact tastes, especially if on a budget. However, with the right accessories, even the most humble of bedrooms can be transformed into the ultimate retreat.

 

When Susan Ellison, owner of the home décor boutique Blue Springs Home in Costa Mesa, California, decorated her daughter’s bedroom, she used cost-effective methods to create the perfect feminine look. These included painting the walls with her daughter’s favorite colors—pink and orange—incorporating some vintage furniture, placing fresh-cut flowers from their garden in glass jars and using some brightly-colored floral cushions.

 

How to Get the Look:

 

  • Flowers look great in vintage glass jars. Visit your local thrift stores to find a bargain.
  • Painting your walls with your favorite colors is a fun way to personalize your room. You may also want to try colors that you find calming to optimize your bedroom as a place of relaxation.
  • Cushions are Susan Ellison’s favorite accessories for “brightening up a room or changing a look.” In doing so, they are worth investing in as they can give your room a cozy, inviting ambiance or can be bold statement pieces.
  • Vintage furniture can provide your room with a truly original look, and it doesn’t have to be pricey. Scour flea markets and junk stores for thrifty finds.
