11 Secret Interior Stylist tricks for your bedroom

Secret bedroom update tricks from an Interior Stylist

I wanted to give my very neglected bedroom a mini overhaul.  Using a heap of style tricks I keep up my jumper just for these occasions, I gave my room a little fix. And Volia! Here’s my instant makeover following my 11 secret stylist’s tricks. And the best bit, you can enter to win my ‘style kit’ to create this look at home.  Secret bedroom update tricks from an Interior StylistBEFORE:  This is the before: with all the other DIY going on in the house, my bedroom was just a mis-mash of junk shop furniture, bed linen left over from shoots and a hell of a lot of clutter (I’m a neat freak). I used the art about the bed as the colour inspiration, and I thought blues and pinks would work well with my vintage french-style bed. Secret bedroom update tricks from an Interior Stylist


I know it feels like a drag but freshly ironed sheets will take your bed from crumpled to chic, and will make even the cheapest linen look a million dollars.  Gone is the busy bed linen and instead I found this soft pink cover which is cotton soft to touch for £47 for the set. Now it is VERY PINK but I forgive it as it’s so lovely to snuggle under.


I picked up my bed off Gumtree for £150. It was covered in this hot pink satin fabric but when I ripped that off, I found the original blue silk. If you’re looking for something similar, try this one by HomesDirect356  – this one is in the sale. It’s pretty spot on if you’re not a big fan of vintage.Secret bedroom update tricks from an Interior Stylist#3 SECRET STYLIST’S TIP: GO MENTAL WITH CUSHIONS

To finish off the bed, I went a bit nuts over cushions. I like reading in bed I find big pillows, like the larger square velvet blue cushion, £20, makes a great bolster.  I don’t think you can beat a well stacked bed full of plump cushions. Just saying.


I looked for blue accessories around my home to dress the bedside take and I popped blue candle (a gift from The Style Chapel) there. It’s way too nice to ever light (which kind of defeats the point) but I like the way the colour ties the room together.Secret bedroom update tricks from an Interior Stylist#5 SECRET STYLIST’S TIP: ADD AN EDGE

Of all my many cushions, I think the ‘You Rock’ one is my fav. It was from Velvet in Brighton. I think it was £10 as it had a tiny mark on it. Not sure if it is a bit tacky? I was hoping it would give this sugar pink room a bit of rock-chick style.

I’ve been looking for this a place for this little guy for a long time. He’s another gift (I’m a lucky girl) from Ima Lola in Hove. He’s carefully resting on my headboard. I gave the headboard a steam clean and it came up a treat. Eventually, I’m going upholster in a linen fabric but that is a project for another day.Secret bedroom update tricks from an Interior Stylist#7 SECRET STYLIST’S TIP: THROWS RULE

Ah, so this is the other side of the room. I’ve got to mention my amazing white wooden blinds from Hillary’s. Love the way they filter the light. My bedroom gets pretty cold in the winter as it is a large room.  I need a couple of extra throws to A} keep warm and B} ‘cos I love ’em – I went for this one from Wayfair which came in £47. I like the way it is not a solid blue but has a woven flecked finish.

Piled over my Ghost chair is yet more cushions and that throw again. That is the great thing about throws, they are so nice to have to snuggle under when reading a good book – or having a snooze (erm..). Great thing about the Ghost chair is not only is an iconic design – it is also really great for keeping the feeling of space in a room.
Secret bedroom update tricks from an Interior Stylist#9 SECRET STYLIST’S TIP: LOOK FOR PATTERN IN UNUSAL PLACES

This is my latest treat for my bedroom a Ruark Radio. When I spotted this limited edition one covered in Osborn & Little print I had to have it (well, it is designed by a classic fabric company). I seem to get lots more radio stations compared to my other digital radios. Now I have managed to set the alarm so that I come on to a spot of Brighton FM which sets my day off perfectly.

Finally, I mustn’t forget to mention my new bedside table which I updated with paint.  It’s so easy to do.  I used a tin of left over Annie Sloan paint which covers anything.  With a bit of masking tape and one coat, the table was transformed.  It took me about 20 mins to do at most. Don’t you think my bedside table looks more expensive now than £50?  It also proves my theory that the less drawers you have = less clutter.


Once I had put everything in place and gave the room a really good Hoover and dust as I went along. The whole room took about an hour or so to do. I think I spent about £120 on the bed linen, bedside table and the extra cushions. Everything else I had knocking around my home already, they just needed to be added to the mix.

It immediately got me thinking of what I could move from one room to the bedroom, what I had relegated to storage in the garage and which cushions I could get remnants of fabric for from the market to revamp instead of throwing away. It has opened up an exciting voyage of discovery.13th March 2016 – 10:08 amReplyCancel

  • Miss Tracy Hanson - I do like the “Quirk” tip to be honest. I’ve got 2 shelf-sitters of my own which have been with me for years and are always in the same spot each time I dust. I have a giraffe and a zebra (which is holding a sign up saying “Why the long face” – cheers me up on a morning).

    I also like the “Iron your Bed Linen” as well. Love the end to my hoovering/dusting spree by then changing the bed with lovely new fresh linen. 🙂13th March 2016 – 1:29 pmReplyCancel
