If you’ve ever yearned to live inside that perfect snapshot of fresh linens, billowy curtains and planters placed just like so, you’ve succumbed to Insta-envy. Even the photos that look like they are candid snapshots somehow portray that effortless happiness we all crave. Images like these are the very visual representation of a fashionably put-together life.
Social media does a really great job at tugging at your heartstrings (and your purse strings), but you don’t have to fall prey to the fear of missing out. You can have an Instagram-ready bedroom as well! Just follow these few tips before you load up on the filters, and you will be the object of others’ envy in no time at all.
- Wake up fresh faced – When you think of the most whimsical Instagram posts, they all seem to have that airy, clean look. Use crisp linens, flowing curtains and a lot of natural light to get that effortlessly clean look you’re aiming for. Open all of your windows and just let the sunlight pour in.
- Add pops of color – Bedrooms should be neutral spaces that are calm and inviting, but they also need a little pizazz. Find accent pieces that really stand out against the clean backdrop.
- Play with texture – Don’t stick to one palate. Mirrors, faux fur accents, fabrics and wood all mix together to provide intrigue.
- Make it yours – Hundreds of Instagram photos look eerily similar, so make yours stand out with a stamp of your personality. Showcase your favorite hobbies, collections or colors — the things that make you unique.
Whether you want to show off your new bedroom furniture or you just want to give your followers a behind-the-scenes look at your life, a glimpse inside your bedroom is sure to get a few extra “likes.”
