hey guys it's emily! sorry i haven't been on lately. but as a girl who has a tumblr room herself, i have to say i LOVE IT! it's so comfortable and makes me feel happy. now i have a reason for staying in my room all the time haha.

if you've gone on to tumblr before you have probably noticed that a lot of people have the coolest rooms ever!
want one like them?
o1. Do research. Search up Tumblr rooms, wall quotes, dream bedroom. Find out what you want.
o2. Ask your parents before. They can help you with money and it's best to check with them before you do anything like paint the walls. Or ask someone at College/ UNI.
o3. Choose a theme or colour.
Most Tumblr bedroom's are painted a solid colour or two. They tend to be block colours, such as blue, black, red. You don't want to draw much attention to the wall. The colors of the wall must contrast with the bedding, curtains and accessories. Or it could have a celebrity theme. i.e. Ed Sheeran theme would be orange and black walls, paw print curtains, calender of him, pictures of him.
o4. Decorate the walls. Paint your walls either white or a bright color. It is the backdrop to your room so make it eye catching!
You can either cover it in posters, or add just a few posters. Paint a picture on it.
Print off loads of pictures of memories, you and friends, family, birthdays and make them into a collage on your wall. A lot of people add pictures of celebrities in frames, it doesn't have to be your favorite celebrity it could just be one that makes your room look pretty. Such as Madonna or Beyonce. Cover your walls with pictures, collages, and more. Make some at home DIY decorations, or buy some and put them on your wall.
o5. Redo your bed. Buy a bedspread with a simple, calm color or an elaborate pattern. This will most likely take up the most space in your room so it should be tasteful. Your bed should be stylish, or if it's a normal bed, cover it in pillows and cushions and a nice bedding.
o6. Choose your lights. Oh, Christmas just ended and you have to take those cheerful lights down and pack them in some dark, scary closet that you would not dare go into at night, right? Not at all! Take those little lights and hang them up around your room for design. A lot of people get LED colored lights and hang them on the ceiling. If you are going to get this you want dim normal bedroom lights.
o7. Wall Quotes. Don't waste time trying to perfectly paint a quote on the wall. Instead, cut individual letters out of magazine papers and stick them on the wall to form a quote. Motivational quotes are popular among Tumblr users.
o8. Posters: Band posters, inspirational pictures, etc. are always in style. Get ones that show your interests. Vintage band posters are very popular.
o9. Do not make your room uncomfortable just to have it look cool. Rooms on Tumblr are livable and cozy!!
1o. Fill up the room with furniture
