How to Create the Perfect Fashionista Bedroom

You can be a fashionista at any age. Due to your penchant for prints, pastels, and shiny objects, your space can become a work of art in just a few days. We've broken down the best ways to take your bedroom from drab to fab in this step-by-step tutorial.

Step #1: Find a pretty headboard and chandelier

This two items become the focal point of the room, so spend a majority of your budget here. Don't be afraid to go "overboard" with a larger, sparkly chandelier and plush, upholstered head and footboard.

(TIP: If you add matching bedside tables, you will truly complete the look.)

Step #2: Create a seating area and dress it with drapery

Whether you want privacy, aesthetics, or sun-block, drapery is the perfect way to add a dash of chic to your bedroom sitting area--even if you lean toward the modern end.

This sitting area is the perfect place to enjoy morning tea or lounge lazily on a Sunday afternoon.

Step #3: Frame a medium-sized mirror and paint your fireplace white

Place the mirror above the mantle or on any other wall that is directly across from a window. This will help your bedroom feel bigger and brighter than it really is.

If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace in your bedroom, dress it up! Paint it white and add your favorite keepsakes on the mantle, preferrably ones with rose gold or metallic accents.

Step #4: Set up a professional vanity with great lighting and a chair

Think of the makeup stations often depicted on film, with Hollywood glamour oozing from every inch. A white-topped table, clear lights, and upholstered chair make this vanity the perfect place to get your glam on for the day (or night).

Step #5: Dress up your walk-in closet

By adding patterned wall paper, a unique rug, and plenty of organized storage, your walk-in closet can become more of a haven than you ever dreamed.

Step #6: Set up your home office

Don't confuse your desk with your vanity. Because the two have very different functions, they should be placed far apart and treated with mutual dignity.

If you're a #girlboss, your workspace matters. Choose a desk and chair that flow with the rest of the room. If you don't use the desk very often or only for short periods of time, you can get away with less ergonomic options. However, if you spend more than four hours a day here, opt for a professional desk and swivel office chair (with good lumbar support).
