How To Refresh Your Bedroom With Just The Colour Green *

Around this time of the year most people start making their homes all cosy and ready for the colder months and start changing up their home a little by adding in more richer and warmer colours and buying the odd autumnal scented candle here and there (or if you're like me, stockpiling all the autumnal scented candles lol). But as much as I love Autumn and the cooler months, this time of the year does affect my mood and when the dark nights start setting in, I start to feel a little low and I’ve been dealing with this for years now. So I like to keep my bedroom quite bright and colourful but still giving my room the whole "cosy vibe" too by adding in soft warm lighting from fairy lights and so on. This year I'm experimenting and attempting to use one main colour to refresh my bedroom. 

I’m refreshing my bedroom and adding in the colour green to keep it vibrant and to give an happy, uplifting kind of ambience. According to some people green can relax your mind apparently too, which is an added bonus. This stemmed from my colourful cactus bedding from New Look as well as other bedding sets I have which have similar colours. I wanted to make my current, most used bedding set tie into my room better so I chose two new lovely eye-catching cushions to go alongside my other cushions on my bed. You can also experiment with this colour and revamp your bedroom without spending much, I would recommend green cushion covers at Yorkshire LinenThe oblong muted green velvet cushion is from Primark and the patterned cushion is from George at Asda. I'm also picking up some new fake potted cacti/succulents and I'm also planning to have an gallery styled print feature wall which will make my bed area fit into the rest of my room without costing a fortune. I really like the outcome so far, I wouldn't normally choose the colour green and I certainly wouldn't have thought green cushion covers would "go" with the colours in my room if I'm being totally honest, considering my room has a busy red brick feature wall and deep purple walls but it somehow just works and I really do think it looks nice.
