Interiors: Inside My Tiny Room

So this is the first interiors post I’ve done which is crazy seeing as I love interior design and re-designing my space. I’ve recently moved bedrooms at home ( I swapped with my Brother as he’s getting older and needs more space, I’m never there anyway) so I’m now in the tiny box room.

I had to be wise with what I kept in my room as storage space is minimal. I ripped out the carpet and painted the floor boards which left me with a completely¬†blank canvas. Here are some of my favourite spots of my room…

On top of my IKEA cube shelves I’ve kept some candles on a tray. Sometimes I have my perfumes on here but i like to keep it really simple. Here I have marshmallow candle from B&m, an LED pillar candle and a Bath and Body Works candle. I love this area, it’s really clean and calm.

Above this area I have an inspirational quote (lol). It’s from coconut which I’m obsessed with! If you want a discount use code BRIGHTONER20 for 20% off. You’re welcome.

In my cube shelf I like to display things I think are pretty but also use for practical storage. I don’t have room for a wardrobe so I store my favourite shoes here. The velvet sock boots are from River Island and the leather ones are from New Look.

I display my perfumes in my cube shelf. I’m a perfume obsessive and I love the look of the pretty bottles. As you can see, I love Jo Malone ALOT. Next to my perfume is my small, yet growing, record collection. My boyfriend has record player so I’m collecting ones I like for when we live together in September.

¬†On top of my IKEA dressing table I store a few beauty products that I’m loving. This changes all the time and if I get sent something for review, it ends up here. At the mo, I’ve got 3 skincare products that are very pleasing to the eye.

I also keep my everyday makeup brushes (there’s a lot more but these are the faves) along with some Jo Malone matches and a diffuser from NEXT.

On my dressing table I keep a few Items that I like. Here, next to my lamp, I’ve put a Neals Yard Body Lotion and a Lush Powder. I also have a small Beatles frames quote.

Onto my makeup. I recently had a massive clear out so everything you see here I use regularly. I store them in empty Jo Malone boxes as it’s so easy to keep tidy and it’s a cheap storage hack.

At the foot of my bed I have a little stool where I keep my salt lamp and a little buddha. I love this area, it’s really calming and the two things go really well together.

in terms of clothes storage, I have virtually zero. I have lots of wardrobe space in my old room ( now my brothers) so I store the majority in there. I keep my most worn and seasonal items on this clothes rail. I store lounge wear under my bed.

Lastly, above my bed I keep my very small book collection with a few pretty bits.

So thats all for today. I’m moving out In September so expect ALOT of interior posts. My pint rest boards are going through the roof right now. I CANNOT STOP PINNING. Anyway, thanks for reading!
