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 Rainbow times.

Hey every Cutie!
Cute pillows!
How are you all doing!?

I wanted to share with you some new Kawaii items I have bought of late, Once again I caved in and bought some cute jewellery items form Enji! *waves*

I love her jewellery so much, its so original and Kawaii! So I was playing about with new things I have learnt with my camera and got some super Kawaii shots with the jewellery nyaa! I hope you like them.

So I also got myself some cute pillows to use in my room they are rainbow themed. They are very lovely and soft.  One is a Rainbow shape and the other 2 are heart shape with Rainbow colour's on them. Very cute hehe I also added my san-x bear pillows in the photo for added cute-ness.  They look very cute in my spare room which I have been working on .
 Now I have made the choice that it will be my 'Kawaii room'' A place I can escape too. But will be doubled up as my *Drum roll* Photography studio room!!! It was meant to be the Guest/ Rilakkuma room but things change haha, It will still be a Guest room too though.
With re painting items white and putting up white shelves to keep the room light and airy for shooting with the (pop up) Back sheet frame with drop, lights, kit ect. I will be needing this, for the next coming months for my photography projects.

Kawaii Ham - Ham loves Enji!


So  I have been setting up my Kawaii and cute items up on the shelves in the room and because I repainted the book shelf there is some kawaii on that too! Yay.
 I have my cute anime and vocailoid figures up on the shelf easy for me to get hold of them as I like doing toy photography, I also have a few smaller plush dolls on this shelf   I have a few Hello Kitty's and Mimmy's here too. As well as a couple of Cat themed things. I do like my Cats. Oh and of course dont go forgetting about my Lucky Cat and Domo too! Am also a Momiji Fan, I have been for ages and I felt like my dolls were not getting much love in the Kitchen so I moved them into the spare room to be admired instead. 

Also this month I caved in - 3 months into this year and I failed. I bought something Hello Kitty
Yep, I was trying to get at least half way through the year and not buy anything Kitty..whoops!
How ever I really happy with the new bag I got. Its bright and a great size - Ah  I just love it! So I have been using it a bit more than my other bags and every time I have used it, I have had a great response and comment on my bag. From '' OH MY LOVE THAT BAG'' to''Wow that is a cute bag'' from other Mummy's at playgroup. Who also admire my other ''funky'' as they say bags and even the staff and customers at the local shop comment on my bags. Which then they were left drooling over my purse too. I some times wonder if these folks have never seen cute before and maybe like to see more of it appearing. hehe its nice to get positive reactions- regardless.
As I  said in the past month or so am going to many events, in April so I should be able to blog lots more. If there is any thing you want me to cover or take photo's of ( keep it clean.) I would like to hear your suggestions!
I hope to put up a post soon of my Toy Photography yay! so watch this space.
Till later <3 Tartan.
