I look around my bedroom and see fragments from my childhood scattered about... after years of changes, maturation, and tastes evolving, I see that a change is needed though, but done so on a budget.
One of my goals this year is to make my bedroom a luxurious dream haven for myself - a place of coziness mixed with pretty grown-up decor that better reflects my tastes, and to finally centralize what pretty and chic style I've wanted for so long in my bedroom.

Over time, I plan to simply take the items that currently don't quite fit my tastes and make homes for them in my "Imagination Station," where my books and craft space is. That space is purposefully more eclectic. It will take a greater part of the whole year, but it will be worth it to have my space be exactly how I've dreamed it to be.
Step one: Create the air of luxury and of a sensual space. How? Quite literally, to be exact.
Create a luxurious air.
I've recently gotten very much into wax melts and candle warmers. I used to light candles or spray room sprays, but there's something about a candle warmer that prevents your candle from being burnt up, or a bottle emptying with every spritzing of a room. It's longer lasting and I like the scent-effects better.
For my bedroom, I love sensual, sexy smells. Think masculine with floral notes, such as Bath & Body Works' Mahogany Teakwood or Black Tie. The most delicious sensual wax melts that I use time and again are Better Homes & Gardens' Tahitian Black Orchid and AmbiEscents Teakwood Noir (available at Bed Bath & Beyond). They are divinely wonderful and help create a cozy and relaxing atmosphere in my bedroom.
What scents do you like? Do you prefer candles or wax burners? There are so many choices out there, and so many fragrances. It can be very hard to choose sometimes.
