SIMPLE WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR ROOM WITH @NELPLANTFebruary 7, 2018
It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to transform a room. A few well placed accessories can instantly refresh your space and add a new sense of style and atmosphere. Student and home style blogger @nelplant talks us through his bedroom style and shows us how it’s done.

I have recently rearranged and redecorated my bedroom to make it look more spacious and to give it a cleaner look. I wanted to create a cozy, warm atmosphere whilst maintaining the minimal, fresh aesthetic that I so dearly cherish.

Something you should know about my room is that it’s actually a very small space. The only piece of actual furniture in it is my bed. My desk and wardrobe are in my brother’s old room so even though it’s a small room, it still feels spacious because there’s little more than a bed and plants. I also have a big mirror opposite my bed to trick the eye into thinking the room is bigger. I’ve had so many comments about the mirror being in front of bed, as it apparantly ‘brings bad energy’ – but don’t worry, my energy is just fine!

I have no idea how to describe my particular style of decor; I just throw things I like together, add some plants and voilà – The Nelson style! It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of plants – I love how they add life to a room and create a really welcoming and cosy atmosphere. I really like how big plants can create that ‘indoor jungle’ vibe, but since my room is tiny, I use smaller house plants such as cacti and succulents to bring the outdoors, in.

Something I’ve noticed when going through pictures of my room is that I’m a big fan of brass accessories. I love how the golden moon cycle banner and copper wall grid add a slightly industrial, metallic element of interest to the clean white walls.

Scented candles are such a small but important extra detail to add to any room. I really like earthy, botanical scents because they match perfectly with the plants and vibe of the space.

I’m really happy with how my room looks at this moment, and even though most of the newest additions are just small additions and finishing touches, they have really created a fresh new atmosphere. Honestly, there’s not much you need to add that extra bit of life to a room, just add some plants and you’re already halfway there!
