How to Add Color to an Attic Bedroom

| |

I wanted to add some new color to our attic bedroom. I added multiple pinks and it is now so light and bright!

Attic bedrooms can be dark and dreary, but they don’t have to be. By adding some color, you can make any space (especially a bedroom) into a happy space.

How to Add Color to a Room

I thought it might be fun to add it to our attic bedroom. I pulled out a few of my paintings (I painted them a few years ago) and then scoured the home for any extra pink decor items I could find.

We remodeled our third-floor attic bedroom over a year ago and I decorated it in neutral tones.

I love how we remodeled this room. But something was missing … color.

For the Christmas holidays, I decorated it in red and white. Which helped to add some life to this room. But when the holidays were over it went back to a colorless room.

So I decided it was time for some longer-lasting color.

Also known as pink.

You will notice that all I did was add pink accessories. I love that they can make the room look quite different and yet they are not permanent. In fact, most of the accessories in our home get moved all year long from one place to another!

This painting is one of mine. I painted it a few years ago.

The slipcover on the chair is a bit big. I made it and it was my first slipcover attempt but somehow I made it a little big (not on purpose). Hopefully, when I wash it there might be some “shrinkage”.

Both the vintage quilt and vintage pillowcases are from the Rose Bowl Antique Flea Market. I made the felt flower pillow and you can find the DIY for that here.

I switched out some of the books and decor on the bookshelves. It is now mostly pink. What a surprise.

Arranging Bookshelves

A quick tip – If you want to organize the color in your bookshelves and you don’t like the color of your books, just turn them to the backside and the colors won’t show. If you look at my bookshelves, you can see I did exactly that.

I love books, don’t get me wrong. These bookcases used to be packed full of books.

But we decided the books needed to be moved to our beach house because that’s likely where they will get used. We are starting a remodel of our beach house and I am excited that we will have an office/bedroom with bookshelves to house a library of perfect books to read while at the beach.

I also installed battery operated-remote control lights at the tops of the bookshelves. I love the extra light they provide.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I decorate my bedroom?

When decorating your bedroom, I suggest you keep things simple and comfortable. Use subtle colors and make sure comfort is your priority.
You obviously need a comfortable bed, adequate storage, and really good linens. If it’s a guest bedroom then you might consider storing extra linens, towels, and linens in the room.
Also, drapes are a must for comfort.

How can I decorate my bedroom inexpensively?

You should start every re-decorating job by shopping your own home. Then, start with a reorganization of the room. Get rid of any extra items and move the furniture around. This always is a great start to redecorating.
Shop the sales for new bedding, as a new quilt or comforter can make a huge difference.
If the budget allows, change out the artwork or a lamp if needed.

Which color is best for a bedroom?

Most colors work in a bedroom, as long as they are in the right place. Neutral colors are best for bedding, wall paint, and furniture. This allows the opportunity to add color to your decor at little expense.
Popular bedroom colors are brown and off-white, grey and white, blue and white, and green and white.

  1. Hi,
    That room is so beautiful, especially that pitcher! Can it be purchased anywhere? I follow you on Instagram and love, love what you do!

    1. Oh my gosh Barbara, you are so, so kind! Thank you for much for reaching out to me. I hope you have a great week ahead!

  4. Your guest room is so beautiful Leslie. Those bookcases and the way you have arranged them just make that whole room. The bed just beckons guests to stay and never leave. In fact if I were a guest in your house, I would sit in that super comfy looking chair and read, drink tea, and eat for days on end until you screamed in my ear to “please leave now”. Just so, so lovely.

  5. Hello, I’m new to your blog and I love the pink floral pillows you painted. I would like to know where you got your pattern.

    Thanks.

    1. Sandra, I am so happy that you are here and that you love the pink floral pillow. The one in the picture in the Guest Room is made of felt flowers, not painted. Here is the link to the post that shows you how to make it! https://my100yearoldhome.com/how-to-cut-and-make-a-felt-flower-pillow-with-the-cricut-maker/ I also have pillows with flowers that I have painted and free motion stitched. I’m not sure which one you meant, so including that link also: https://my100yearoldhome.com/how-to-make-a-free-motion-embroidery-stitch-pillow/

      I hope you give them a try! Let me know how yours turn out!

  6. I have a love for pink as well. It is so refreshing to have a blog I can read and enjoy with beautiful home decor with pink being the highlight most often. You are so talented. Thank you for sharing. You have something for everyone with a range of budgets. So so appreciate you. God bless

  7. Leslie,
    Enjoyed your attic bedroom redo. It’s fun to ‘shop’ around the house and create a
    new ‘look’. You are a very creative lady and have a talent to ‘see’ something in a
    different way. Kudos.
    Your paintings are also special and lively. What medium do you use? I know
    many posts commented on them; yes! paint more (when you have time!!)

  8. I always love the things you do to create a beautiful home. What lights did you use for the bookshelves? I have tried several for my antique secretary and none have worked well so far.

  9. Planned for 2022 you mean? Please don’t take me back..Lol
    I love the pitcher as well. I have a floral one from my grandmother that I use a lot. It’s a lot of color but your right Leslie as in a little “pop” of color can brighten a room. Love the attic space!
