    I struggle so much with my room cause I sleep on the loft and I struggle with the ceiling and the walls

  2. Donna Allgaier-Lamberti on December 28, 2022 at 1:22 am

    I’m redoing my bedroom after a leak in the kitchen that took out my laminate floor. I was able to add new laminate throughout my entire condo including my primary bedroom. I have chalk painted vintage furniture and a black metal headboard and foot. I am purchasing two painted black MCM bedside tables -the ONLY matching items in my bedroom. I bought a jute like solid rug and look forwards to setting up my new bedroom.

  3. Jo McGrath on December 28, 2022 at 1:23 am

    Is this just an advertisement???

  4. Kristen McGowan on December 28, 2022 at 1:23 am

    HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!💗🤗 I hope this video gives you some design ideas to make your bedroom look it’s best! Comment below, what color is your room painted right now!!

  5. Walter Foyt on December 28, 2022 at 1:24 am

    I enjoyed your video and love the fact that you didn’t include a TV.

  6. Chloe Wang on December 28, 2022 at 1:24 am

    I would love to do all of these things that you said in the video, but my room is very small, so I don’t have enough space to do the things. 😭

  7. Kavita Bosamiya on December 28, 2022 at 1:25 am

    You are just amazing in explaining style of decor! Same time your smile and presence so divine. Bless you

  8. Karma Matters on December 28, 2022 at 1:27 am

    I don’t care if my bedroom looks expensive. I care if it is warm, welcoming and comfortable.

  9. Tempo 919 on December 28, 2022 at 1:27 am

    My favourite bedroom accessory is a cat

  10. Antoinette Lugo on December 28, 2022 at 1:28 am

    I want to try EVERYTHING! You are amazing. Thanks so much for these videos!

  11. Nohemi Gomez on December 28, 2022 at 1:29 am

    I have to shove my bed into a corner, how can I make that work?

  12. Gloria Baker on December 28, 2022 at 1:29 am

    This was so good. I have new space and I am so glad I saw!

  13. Salooja Pmoorthy on December 28, 2022 at 1:30 am

    Thanks for the mirror removal tip from the dresser brilliant I am sooooo doing it

  14. shaban6151 on December 28, 2022 at 1:35 am

    Ok so this is a commercial for Lilly silk

  15. rbellot11 on December 28, 2022 at 1:38 am

    You are a genius…

  16. Sharon Webb on December 28, 2022 at 1:38 am

    You mentioned symmetry but said not necessarily match night stands

  17. Paola Sanchez on December 28, 2022 at 1:38 am

    Symmetry is key! Thank you!

  18. CC Mars on December 28, 2022 at 1:39 am

    IMPECCABLE timing!!! I was just complaining to my daughter that I am so over my bedroom!! Yes I do have the old wooden & wrought iron bed frame, complete with matching side tables and blanket box. We just removed our carpet and put down floor boards which I was looking forward to but now it’s somehow made the furniture stand out even more. I might have to take before and after photos!! Thank you so much for the inspiration!! 💖

  19. Pat Rutledge on December 28, 2022 at 1:40 am

    Too much advertising! I realize the company is sponsoring you but let’s talk about the bedroom decor, not blouses. If possible next time could you share more about the small decorative items…plants, vases, whatever. I really need that right now. Thanks in advance!

  20. Sara Sara on December 28, 2022 at 1:42 am

    Can not stand your advertising. I pay YouTube premium so I don’t have to watch commercials. No more you videos

  21. Hannah Turley on December 28, 2022 at 1:43 am

    never would have thought about the matching bedroom set but that makes SO much sense. Totally using this for my new apartment!

  22. Kimberly Allen on December 28, 2022 at 1:45 am

    Hi Kristen …..thanks for dropping these gems…..I am having trouble choosing color for my matching dresser and night stand I have a white bed and brown dresser but want to paint the night stand and dresser …Do I have to paint it white to match the bed? Are can I paint the dresser one color and the night stand another color…my team is farmhouse
    Thanks inadvance

  23. Sofia Mechelle Menchaca on December 28, 2022 at 1:45 am

    Thanks! I am moving and am going to try your tips 🙂

  24. Tinker Table on December 28, 2022 at 1:47 am

    I would love some small bedroom tips. As much as these tips are awesome, we don’t have room to apply many of them.

  25. Valencia's world on December 28, 2022 at 1:47 am

    Hi Kristen are metal steel bed frames good in the bedroom. And do they look expensive if we’ll decorated. Thanks

  26. dancejiang888 on December 28, 2022 at 1:48 am

    Lots of lovely tips and ideas. Thank you very much, but I would love to hear you call them cushions rather than pillows.😘

  27. evas beauty on December 28, 2022 at 1:50 am

    I have a small room and onto of that I have my small buisness in my room so I pretty much don’t have a room anymore anything u can recommend?

  28. Wendy Graziano on December 28, 2022 at 1:50 am

    I can’t wait to get rid of my matchy matchy mirror connected to my dresser! Thank you for the idea!!

  29. Karin Wells on December 28, 2022 at 1:50 am

    Any ideas on repurposing the mirror from the bedroom set?

  30. Kimberly Allen on December 28, 2022 at 1:54 am

    I have a situation and not sure how to fix it …my bed is white and my dresser and night stand are dark brown ….I want to change the color, but am not sure what color would go with my bed other than trying to match the white

  31. led zeppelin on December 28, 2022 at 1:55 am

    You gave me so many tips! I feel so inspired… thank you!

  32. Rawsick on December 28, 2022 at 1:55 am

    White bedding has no taste or anything just like a white kitchen it’s just a safe play because the person has no creative articulate taste

  33. Yankee Poodle on December 28, 2022 at 1:56 am

    Sorry but I love mirrors. When I was moving my brother broke my 500 dollar mirror I ended up going to home depot and buying 2 2 x4 mirrors . I put an edge on them and then put a crucifix in the middle. So much cheaper and it’s decorative.and makes the room look bigger.

  34. Ricardo Chucky on December 28, 2022 at 1:57 am

    i wonder what Kristen thinks of "movie poster" as hanging art, is it atrocious??

  35. maria fenella galagar on December 28, 2022 at 1:58 am

    Will buy new pillows so I can throw away the old one in the garbage bin.

  36. Elisabeth Tremmel on December 28, 2022 at 1:59 am

    I really wonder if you could redesign our bedroom: it’s tiny, it’s cubical, it has tiny windows with few daylight because it is in the basement. It’s sooo uncomfortable, but I find no solution…
    Thanks for your tips and inspirations anyway. Love your videos. 🙂

  37. Blackberry Lady on December 28, 2022 at 2:00 am

    I never like the big mirror on the dresser, likes to put my own…Great job 🖐🏾🖐🏾💯💯

  38. Paula Price on December 28, 2022 at 2:04 am

    I love all your designs ideas. However, You lost me at take away all your colors. I am super eclectic. LOVE colors. lol

  39. 0bvimehreen on December 28, 2022 at 2:04 am

    Lily silk does look very luxurious but it is not a very good recommendation since it’s not very affordable and as ur video is supposed to make ur house look expensive not actually expensive

  40. christiane desbois on December 28, 2022 at 2:04 am

    Love you soooo much. Thank you .

  41. T Gilbert on December 28, 2022 at 2:07 am

    Lily Silk has many many HORRIBLE reviews for being fraudulent and taking money and then ghosting customers!!!

  42. Gina on December 28, 2022 at 2:07 am

    Hmmm it’s 2.30 mins and it’s still on lily silk…. Sorry I am unsubscribing…too much.

  43. wekobeach on December 28, 2022 at 2:08 am

    To much white

  44. Silva Mary Samidas on December 28, 2022 at 2:10 am

    don’t have £400

  45. maria fenella galagar on December 28, 2022 at 2:16 am

    Have to change my pillows today or tomorrow , will throw away the old one , will just do it one at a time , just within my financial capacity and not go beyond it of course , but will simplify things out , will focus on milky white or other pastel colors ( not printed ones ) and will have my laundry done too so my room will have that sweet / scented smell.

  46. Hashbrown on December 28, 2022 at 2:18 am

    Step 1: Have an actual expensive room

  47. Plum Orchard Farm on December 28, 2022 at 2:18 am

    Wow! Never expected to see my own bedroom featured. Thank you!! We just moved and are starting over again, so kind of missing that finished space right now😆

  48. Stephanie Reid on December 28, 2022 at 2:20 am

    Good advice. Thanks

  49. Lyssa Bird on December 28, 2022 at 2:21 am

    You always have the BEST example/inspo photos! I would really LOVE it if you made a Pinterest account and made boards with the photos you use in your videos! 😍

  50. Cindy Riehm on December 28, 2022 at 2:21 am

    So, what she is saying here is this: when I was poor I had eclectic mismatched furniture.
    Now that I have some money I wanted and purchased matching furniture. So I’m a little late on the draw!!!
