Create an Elegant Boudoir on a Budget: 5 Bedroom Looks To Steal From Instagram
While a bedroom these days can do double duty as the occasional office, a proper bedchamber should be more of an oasis—and a spot to dream in (night or day). Indeed, how you design your home’s most relaxing space should reflect some take-me-away sanctuary vibes. And not serve as a stressful reminder of how much cash you spent to make it look that way.
Luckily calming yet bold design looks don’t have to be a drain on your bank account. To wit, this week’s trending Instagram looks can all be had for under $300!
Ready to upgrade your bedroom without smashing your piggy bank? We bring you five fantastic and inspiring design ideas for less.
1. Bedside bar lamp
OK, this may not exactly fit the bill for the bedside bar where you can get a vodka martini up. Yet we still think this vertical lamp from @ninakecki is an incredible way to beautify and modernize your bedroom with an eye-catching profile.
“This bedside bar lamp works well in a bedroom with some ‘Japandi‘ or Scandinavian influence,” says designer Amanda Oninski, of FLOOR360. “It’s a sleek line that produces a super warm light, which can give an overall minimalist monochromatic feel. [It] really is the height of form and function.”

2. Olive wainscoting
Nothing elevates a small bedroom quite like a fresh, bold coat of paint on the walls—especially if that paint is warm olive accented by an adorable bit of wainscoting, as seen in this picture-perfect bedroom featured by @greenbank_interiors.
“Biophilic design continues to inspire design solutions like olive-color wainscoting with its ability to provide contour and definition to bedroom walls,” says Oninski. “The olive color palette will create a bold statement while remaining neutral and serene. That makes it an ideal shade for bedrooms.”

3. Faux canopy bed
Want a royal upgrade on a pauper budget? Then you might just need to install lush curtains to mimic a canopy bed. All the proof you need is this glamorous shot featured by @postcardsbyhannah.
“It’s no secret that hanging curtains from the ceiling to the floor creates the illusion that your room is taller than it is,” says designer Andra DelMonico, of Trendey. “These extra-long curtains have a touch of whimsy. And the high-quality fabric and trim give a room a sense of elegance.”

4. Mirror, mirror, mirror on the wall
You probably won’t be using these three mirrors featured by @mydiyhappyhome to stare at your reflection. But you’ll love the way they frame your bedroom set.
“Hanging decor on your wall in odd numbers gives your room a creative and interesting look,” says DelMonico. “It’s also easier to space them out than trying to perfectly hang an even number. People generally find arrangements with odd numbers to be more visually appealing and memorable than a collection of even items.”
Plus, three is a magic number when it comes to design, adds DelMonico. So take advantage of the prime number with mirrors on repeat.

5. XL floor pouf
Want elegant bedroom decor that’s also uber-comfortable? Heck yeah, you do. Then try this wonderfully large floor pouf from @the_boho_door_at24.
“A huge floor pouf is perfect for giving your room an organic feel,” says DelMonico. “It works well in a luxurious, bohemian, or even a farmhouse-designed room. The oversized design makes it comfortable, while also serving as a unique decorative piece.”
