welcome to my room {pastel bedroom tour}

Hello, my friends!

Ahh, I am so excited about this post. My room has been in the works for months now, with little random projects being finished early in December. But it’s finally finished and ahh, I am so happy with how it turned out! It’s so. . . well, me, haha, and I love it. <3 And I think you guys will, too! After sharing a room with three sisters for my entire life, having my own space felt so weird at first, but so nice! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you are redecorating your room, or just want some ideas to refresh your space, this post is for you!

Welcome to my room. . .

When you step in, on your left is my dresser.

I cut the hydrangeas in early November, and I love the way they brighten up my room; I love hydrangeas way more when they dry than when they were first picked, what do you think? I also have a gorgeous jewelry box from my aunt, a succulent, and a little heart-shaped box. I always have a wreath above, it changes each season, but I love this simple cedar wreath.

My mom had the lovely idea to put these mini close pins with photos attached across the mirror. I wasn’t sure how I felt at first, but I love it now!

Across the room from my dresser is my nightstand and bookshelf.

On my nightstand/dresser sits my basket of books which holds my Bible, prayer journal, bullet journal, two books I’m currently reading (Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli and Hope Was Here by Joan Bauer), my line a day journal, and highlighters for Bible reading. Next to it holds two succulents, a tiny but lovely blue notebook that has my initals on it, and a few other souvenirs. The drawers hold extra notebooks, washi tape, and a few other random things.

Isn’t my yellow alarm clock wonderful? I love it, haha. Well, maybe I don’t feel that way when it wakes me up at 6am, but during the day, it’s one of my favorite things in my room! It’s so cheery and yellow.

Next to my nightstand sits my bookshelf which is really an antique crate that my Dad found when he was cleaning out a house years ago, and my mom had the idea to use it as a shelf. I have more books that are in my cabinet above, but these are my favorites or ones that I want to read next. The shelves are quite filled because I have wayyy too many books I want to read or favorites, haha.

I was given this houseplant (anyone know what kind it is?) sometime last summer, and honestly, I’m surprised it’s still alive. It looks a bit rough, but I’m hoping if I take good enough care of it, it’ll continue surviving!

This is my bed, clearly, haha. Originially, I had a quilt my grandma gave me, but I liked the way the white comforter is so bright, clean, and fresh.

I love the pop of color these pillows add to my room! (I couldn’t find the exactly pillows I have, but I linked to ones that are similar.)

I got this set of waterfall lights to hang over my bed, and ahh, they add such a cozy atmosphere to the whole room, and they are so pretty at night.

Next, I’ll show you my desk. I don’t actually know where we got the desk, other than it was Malachi’s before it was mine. ๐Ÿ˜›

Above it, on these lovely shelves, I have a few cute signs, more succulents, a light-up letter P, and a chalkboard.

Below that, I have my bulletin board and photo holder. My bulletin board holds hand-lettered quotes & Bible verses from my penpals/friends Eva and Kate, a frog with a Santa clause hat drawn by my friend Duncan, and to-do lists written on sticky notes. On my photo sign, I have a few wintery photos I’ve taken over the past two months.

I don’t know if this part will be terribly interesting or terribly boring, but here’s what I have in my desk drawers, haha. In the first two, I have normal pens, brush pens, Midliners, a cute set of office supplies, glue, scissors, and a ruler. In the next one, I have tape, lots of sticky notes, more pens, extra notebooks that I use for small to-do lists, and a handy container of paper and binder clips.

In my last two drawers, I have Crayola markers, watercolors, artist pastels, paint brushes, and watercolor pencils. And then, what I consider to be my pen pal-ing drawer! This holds my stationary set, wax seal kit, letters to be replied to, stickers, photo prints, and stamps.

Next to my desk is another antique crate. ๐Ÿ™‚ On this sits a jar that holds my Micron pens and pencils, even more succulents, and normally, my waterbottle.

On the ‘shelves’, in the white baskets holds my art journal, a few random sketchbooks, and to-do lists. On the bottom shelf is where my camera gear is stored: extra lenses, tripod, charger, cord for importing photos to my laptop, and a variety of other things.

All of the walls in our house our white, and since I love the way it makes everything fresh and spacious, plus I wasn’t wanting to repaint the whole room. ๐Ÿ˜› If you use pops of color in other places, it can really give you a bright and airy room!

I can’t finish this post without a before and after picture, can I? This picture was taken before we moved in (the people we bought in from didn’t clean it out whatsoever. :P), and this is how it looks currently. Quite the change for the better, right? At least, I think so. ๐Ÿ˜€

Here I am, sitting at my nice new desk with my laptop, working on editing photos for this post in my nice new room. I’m actually typing this post right now at my desk, with my twinkle lights on and watching the snow fall. <3

your turn!

And that, my friends, shall conclude this extremely long room tour. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! I love having such a bright and airy bedroom to relax and work in.

Hopefully, this tour gave you some inspiration if youโ€™re looking to redecorate or repaint your own room, and some encouragement that white walls donโ€™t have to be boring and can really be wonderful! If you enjoyed this post, I’d be so appreciative if you’d pin it on Pinterest and share it with others!

What is your favorite part of my room? What is your favorite part of your room? Have you ever redecorated your room / space?

Thank you so much for reading, my friends, and have a beautiful day!

  1. Ooooooh! I love your room so much! Itโ€™s so you! I love your desk space and your dresser the best or maybe your bed!
    I actually just got my own bedroom and we redecorated everything. We even repainted. Now I have a white bedroom with pretty purple/gray along the top. And some flower wall stickers up in a top corner. Itโ€™s my perfect space!
    (Also I agree! White rooms with splashes of color are perfect! I have the only room painted white in the house. But I feel like it makes it look more organized and clean and also very spacious)

    1. Oooh, that’s so nice ~ I remember you telling me about it. I love the idea of doing white with colors along the top of the walls. (You should send me a picture on YDubs. ;)) Thank you so much for reading, dear!

  2. Ooh I love your room Pearl! I like the light and airy vibe, with little pops of color to add a little something else. If I didnโ€™t share a room, I would certainly redo it, but yours is just SO PRETTY!! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Even if you share a room, you can definitely add some personalization to your space, as long as your roommate agrees; I have 13 years of experience behind me of sharing a room, so I get it’s tough at times. I’m so glad you enjoyed this post!

  3. Ahhhh, your room is SO cute! I love all the pops of color. ๐Ÿ˜ My sister, who I share a room with, is planning to move out sometime this year, so it’s time for me to start thinking about how I want to fix up the room to fit me. You gave me some inspiration!
