How to Add Some Whimsy to a Bedroom

Sometimes a Little Whimsy is all You Need

I've found that over the years of designing my own home and others, that every room needs a touch of something just a little quirky, whimsical or strange. It is a big part of why I choose crocodile print wallpaper for my dining room. Each room needs something delightful. 

A great place to play is in the bedroom. Create a space that reflects you and your interests. If star beams and moons are your thing, then go with it. I love how the bedroom above looks somewhat formal, but by draping it with gold stars it becomes a playful space. 

You don't have to go all out and paint the ceiling with constellations or put up glow in the dark stars (if that is your thing, then I encourage you to do so!), but you can add a few elements. 

This beautiful print from The Honey Bee Paperie would look lovely and what it says is perfect!

Or this print from Printastic Studio. I have one very similar in my bedroom. I wanted to embrace my exploration of my witchy side and I wanted to be more aware of the moons changes.

You could also add a mural or some wallpaper that have the moon or some stars as a focal point behind the bed.

Finally the easiest way to add some magic to the bedroom is to add twinkle lights.

If your bedroom is feeling a little flat these days then add some stars and moons.
