Simple Tips To Give A Mesmerising Makeover To Your Bedrooms



Your bedroom is your one place of solace, that slice of heaven that you escape to at the end of your day. It should be a place that you’re comfortable in, and the decor should reflect that. Most of the time, bedrooms accumulate the fallout of years of neglect and misuse, and end up cluttered, without proper elements. Your furnishing needs and the look you want to achieve may change over the years you stay there, and every once in a while, you feel the need to update the “look” that it has. Redecorating is usually a costly affair, but it doesn't have to be. There are many small changes and additions you can incorporate that make a huge difference but don’t really lighten your wallet by much. We’ll work through the bedroom, element by element, so you can transform your bedroom into a luxurious experience!

The Bed

The bed is the focal point in your bedroom, and often the most neglected. Changing this goes a long way in setting the look and feel of the room. Invest in good pillows and linens. Two different pillow sizes should be enough, along with a set of neck pillows. Adding a classy duvet is an easy instant upgrade. Headboards are an inexpensive centerpiece. To add a personal touch, buy an old, used headboard and revamp it. Add your own paint, or upholster it in a fabric of your choice and voila! In case you have a metal bedpost with a frame behind it, you can decorate the wall behind your bed with an inexpensive but dramatic rug. This is an excellent bargain option that needs a minimum amount of effort as well.

The Curtains 
 
Upgrading your curtains provides a fresh look at the room. Have boring, single color curtains? Add instant glam with a richly embroidered window valance. Wooden pelmets that hide unsightly curtain rods are another easy option. If your existing pelmets are boring, a fresh coat of paint can do wonders. If painting isn’t an option, you can use wash tape to define the borders that gives a nice, quirky look to the item.

The curtains themselves should be changed too. Investing in high-quality material and a nice design is always a good idea. Use light colors and translucent material if you don’t have a lot of ambient light in the room, and darker colors and heavy material for bigger rooms. Blinds are an option that adds a modern look and feel and are easy to maintain as well.

The Floor 
 
The floor can make a huge difference to a room. Smaller rooms could do without carpeting, and the natural wood flooring makes the room look much bigger and airier. Instead, area carpets offer a much classier-looking alternative that is functional too. The color of your carpeting can go a long way in changing the look of your room. Changing it might be a tad expensive, but is worth every penny in the overall outcome. DIY dyeing is another option here. You can customize the color to be one you want, and you won’t have to stick to what’s available in the store.

Storage

This is the most dramatic change that you can make, and for nearly nothing at that! You can often have a number of piles of things in your bedroom. This makes the room look untidy and messy, and generally trashy. Step up your game with some easy storage options that instantly make your room look fresher and brighter. Old wire baskets can be lined with pretty fabric to make excellent storage options. Keep wicker baskets for dirty laundry. Keep a dedicated trashcan. Add a bookshelf. Your options are limited only by your imagination!

Accessories

These are the cheapest tips there are. Update an old dresser or wooden cabinet with a new, dark tint and new knobs or handles. Updating handles and knobs doesn’t take much money, but makes any old item feel like new. You could pick up some vintage ones for a luxurious, old-world feel. New varnish on all your woodwork is an excellent update that you can do at home.

Add new accessories like lamps that fix bad lighting in the room. Go for subdued lighting here, with an option to increase it if the need arises. Add wall-fixtures to add drama, and play with levels in your space. Invest in paintings, or get your old photographs framed. Use wall decals for an easy fix to blank wall space. Wall murals which are custom made, either store bought or handmade, add a personal touch and just the right amount of drama to make a good talking point.  Log in to http://www.homestoreonline.com.au for more information and details.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
