How to make a a Kawaii Princess bedroom.

Every one loves having a room, personal space and place to retreat to. Most the time that is your bed room. I myself have wanted a shabby chic with a kawaii princess touch to it. Its a working progress. However I thought why not post up my findings form what I have found here with you all.
I found lots of inspiration online and of course added my own touch. I guess when it comes down to it your personal taste will favour shades and colours so just pick what you like. Myself I took to softer shades as its a bedroom after all and its for sleeping. I know some of you will still be in the frame of mind that your bed room is your whole life. I was like that when I was renting. So feel free to pick the shades and things that you like -its your room . This is simply my guide and ideas.


Lets go!
First off colours are important I picked the shades already on my walls. which is a muted cream shade and a wall of crazy purples ( a feature wall I think it is to be?) - I want to change it but not till time and money ect. So am working with the shades I have in mind and the shades I have. Of course I would love to rip it all off and have it all my way but - not yet. So I picked similar shades to what I want to what I have. Soft colours, cream , soft grey, a hint of pink and lavender .  So am working with those shades in mind. ( you can pink the kinds you want but think princess like.) When it comes to Princess shades, think ( and not limited too.) Pastels. White, Baby Pink / Blue , Egg Duck Blue, Lavander, Dusty Gray ect. 



I picked a shabby chic theme with a touch of royalty and cuteness. Cause I wanted to feel like a princess when I step into the room. However keeping in mind Mr also shares the room - I had to hold back on the crazy princess ideas I had! Am sure he will feel like a princess too when its all finally done haha! So I guess I went for a more mature princess theme.  I picked out things like hearts, butterflies, unicorns , flowers, soft images and gentle things . You can also pick if you wish to have a modern princess room , over the top style. If that is not your thing maybe you will pick a more simple clean style instead.

Hints and tips
Things that make a room belong to a princess.
The Bed, if you have the funds go crazy on a Princess style bed or why not up cycle the bed you already have by picking some cute bedding.
The Mirror, Every princess need a magic mirror, mine is a old 80's cream free standing mirror that I have on my dresser but you can find any size, style and colour to match your room. I just can not part with my one cause it belonged to my mum.
The Units/ Dresser , As much as I would love to repaint or replace the pine ones I have . You can dress them up with table runners or pick new ones with white shades and cream or paint your own. Look for anything that is vintage/ Shabby chic.
The Chandler, nothing says princess or queen like a pretty chandler of course its up to you but you can find some really nice ones or just change your light shade to something cute and airy.
The Bed Canopy, totally need something like this. A little fabric draped over the bed or pinned to the walls will add a touch of elegance!
The Extras, This is where you can go crazy and have lots of fun adding your personal touch! Think pretty twinkle lights, cute photo frames, wall art, cushions ect ect.. Myself I have a huge blossom tree with lights on it! 


Where to get the stuff?!
Getting stuff can be the fun but and a little stressful. I took to google image searches for ideas at the start and then took to places like ebay, amazon and etsy . Other places such as not on the high street too. Of course you will be surprised at what the street shops have! I found lots of cute things fit for a kawaii princess in Primark, New Look and even B&M even checking out places such as Paperchase, Tiger and Charity shops ! It is also fun looking at places likes of pound shops, Home bargins, Dunelm and Matalan or TKMaxx It is completely worth it!

Now you have some insight and ideas I hope you will all share your own kawaii rooms!
Once my own room is done up and sorted I will do a bed room tour on my youtube or instagram for you all! Have fun doing up your princess kawaii rooms all!

Kawaii Christmas Tree 2016


Behold my sparkling kawaii cuties! 
Behold the reveal of my Kawaii Christmas tree for this 2016 that is fit for any pink pastel princess of cuteness! Last year I changed my tree to a more mature look but keeping it girly and cute as possible . I had a few thing but this year I took some time to get hold of more cute decorations. I also had the Disney Tsum Tsums in my tree last year. Which are now absent. Again there is 3 trees in my Kawaii home. One is the little ones Birthday Tree which belongs to the wee one and its her own tree for free style decorating and then we have the 2 white trees, one small and the larger one. The smaller one is my blue/ silver inspired tree, and tbh it only gets dressed up as I already have the decorations and the colours go so well together. It would be a waste right!



 Any way lets move onto the star, I mean tree that gets all the attention of Kawaii! I really wanted a magical enchanted looking tree this time with hints of Kawaii here and there . ( remember Kawaii can be anything you think is super cute!) So I changed over the lights from rainbow ones that I have had for like 6 or 7 years lol! And this year replaced them with warm golden style soft glow lights. To make everything tie in with each other. However am bummed that the wire is black and had to hide it under tinsel which in turn has made the tree a bit fluffy.  


My colours of picking this year are baby pink with a hint of hot pink . Silver and White as well , I really  wanted every thing pink but had to brake up the colours a bit haha, So I threw on the tinsel , the bead rows, lots of Crystals in pink, Babbles , Unicorn ornaments and Disney ones (can you spot them?!) Some hidden tiaras , there is stars and butterflies and my new cute pushie Pusheen cat decorations- cause well cats! lol . 



I think the Hello Kitty trees are past it now. I left my mark on the HK tree. Every one jumped along on that bandwagon so its for sure time for me to get girly kawaii and pink in some other way! 
What would you dream tree be like?  I do like this more mature tree over all , I like its girly princess cute vibe. But on day I will push my luck in getting a super cute pink tree and go crazy on it. 


Head on over to my Instagram for more photos and Kawaii cuteness!
