I feel like this one goes without saying. I think I printed out a hundred pictures to tape on my dorm room wall when I first moved to college. There are so many ways to decorate with pictures whether it’s taping them to a wall or creating a framed collage. Whatever way you do it, pictures are one of the best ways to feel at home and keep the faces of loved ones around you every day to keep your spirits lifted.
2. Essential Oil Diffuser
This one is my absolute MUST when it comes to making any space a good one. My oil diffuser is what keeps the vibes in my room exceptional at all times. I choose to use lavender oil, which keeps me feeling relaxed at all hours of the day, but there are hundreds you can choose from. You can find these diffusers on Amazon, T.Jmaxx, and other stores for as low as $10. I’m telling you this is a purchase you won’t regret and will definitely use every day.
3. Plants or Flowers
Just because you want a space to be cozy, doesn’t mean you want it to be dull and dreary. Having plants or flowers in your room is an amazing way to liven up your space of any size. For me, I love keeping real flowers in my room all year round. There’s no shame in buying yourself flowers, ladies! Flowers keep your room smelling fresh and make beautiful decorations. Another fun option is small succulents, which take less care but also add a cool vibe to your space.
4. Boyfriend (or girlfriend) Pillow
This is my favorite part of my room, and I bet you can see why. This boyfriend pillow was gifted to me for my birthday last year, and I’m obsessed. Single or not, having a snuggle buddy 24/7 is truly the best gift of all time.
5. Twinkle lights
Finally, I’ve found that good lighting is essential when it comes to having a great room. A cozy room doesn’t necessarily mean you want it to be darker. It is vital to have a space that can let light in during the day to energize you, and a space that can keep out the light when you want it to. With this said, I’ve loved having twinkle lights in all of my rooms to twinkle lights to create some mood lighting when I’m just hanging out. These are a cheap way to decorate and serve a practical purpose as well. Flip these lights on and have the ultimate cozy space!
