Hello friends! 🙂 Today I’m sharing my extreme cozy bedroom makeover and how I did it for less than $500. It’s Victorian, Little Women and Anne of Green Gables themed. In terms of aesthetic, it gives me vintage cottagecore/light academia vibes. And maybe a bit of Hobbiton/Shire inspired as well. I focused on thrifting and using facebook marketplace to find furniture, and then I used Pinterest to help me create a vision for the room. It’s truly my dream bedroom and I absolutely love how it turned out. I definitely know that this isn’t everyones style, but it’s perfect for me 🙂
I hope you enjoy watching it. This was definitely my biggest production thus far.
Filming time: a week and a half

    I’ve just found your channel, and your videos are so lovely and inspiring – thank you for sharing your happiness and joy with all of us. Your bedroom is truly wonderful. 🙌

  3. Beauty All Around Me on February 23, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Beautiful job! And I can’t believe the great deals you found. I would love to do this type of thing, too, but I have no one to help me or carry thing for me.

  4. KickaCoffee on February 23, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    $500 WOW I thought that costed at least $2000 you did a great job!

  5. Cicadas01 on February 23, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    I think this is one of my fav. Videos from her. Thanks little peach.

  6. Christiniae on February 23, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    There’s a ton of videos on the style but rarely any that actually hit! You did an amazing job!

  7. Harlei Mansfield on February 23, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    This is not even my dream style, but seeing how happy you were because it was yours brought genuine tears to my eyes. I’m glad you created such a safe oasis for yourself!

  8. Abby Pinta on February 23, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    I feel like I watched a room makeover and a romance novel come to life. fantastic job! I am in love with your energy and style, never change <3

  9. happy_nancy on February 23, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    Your closing scenes were perfect especially your tea party with your wonderful affectionate dog!

  10. Raquel Minchetti on February 23, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    That’s so beautiful!

  11. foreverxfall on February 23, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    I have that EXACT teaset @29:00!! It was so beautiful i had to have it. I dont have a place for it rn, but i cant wait till i can display and use it 🥰

  12. Lavender Rain on February 23, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    I also love the Victorian era for its stunning interior designs, architecture design and fashion. They were so much more elegant… it seems like we’ve left that way of life behind us. Though some of us try to bring it back into style. If I had the money, I’d totally decorate my room in a Victorian design, but sadly wont be able to fit that size for a bed 🙁

  13. Dette on February 23, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    How old are you?

  14. ALM on February 23, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    I love that painting 😍 do you know the name of it? Thank you

  15. Skye Robertson on February 23, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    This is literally my dream life…SOOOOO glad I found this channel! Subscribed😁

  16. Jane Chapman on February 23, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    This is so amazing, you wouldn’t know it to be the same room as before, would you?

  17. Hayley Wharton on February 23, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    I’m a professional interior designer. Your passion and love for that room really moves me. It reminds me why I became a designer in the first place. Thank you for that.

  18. Tiffany Ngo on February 23, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    OMG I love your room!!! Where did you get Anastasia’s Music Box????

  19. vivian king on February 23, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Keep the spirit within you always, I have done so and am now 68, life nevers gets dull or old.
    Absolutely stunning. In Joy

  20. Leslie Scudiere on February 23, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    A glorious space.

  21. poodlegirl55 on February 23, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Lovely room. I am 66 years old and that gold Little Women book is just like mine from when I was in about 6th grade. I remember getting it from my aunt for a birthday. It wasn’t until I was in my 50’s that I discovered the entire series: Little Men, Jo’s Boys etc and found them all on Ebay and read them. Thanks for the memories.

  22. Another Vintage Day on February 23, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    What a wonderful room! I am like you, I like to see my things out and displayed in an artful way. Sharing tea with your dog was a perfect moment. Congratulations!

  23. Colleen Thomas on February 23, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    Adorable 😊

  24. Katie jones on February 23, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    She has such a light hearted and bubbly spirit. I love it🥰💛💖

  25. Juliana Messina on February 23, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    I just wanted to get this out you give Miss Stacy vibes and I know that you know what that means if this is an Anne of Green Gable’s inspired room

    I’ve loved watching this. It’s not the way I’d deco my room (I’m dying to deco my room as Ravenclaw common room) but I love the video nonetheless. Such a joy to watch. I don’t know if you watch/read Harry Potter, with your love of books, creativity, love of vintage things, you give me big Ravenclaw energy and I love it. I’m a Ravenclaw. I can wait to watch more videos x

  28. Sheryl Wickenheiser on February 23, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Your basket brought back memories of packing dinner to take to a local vineyard to listen to big band music on summer Saturday nights. Sadly the owners passed away and the vineyard was sold. Love your new room. So glad I found your channel. A studio ghibli fan too. My granddaughter and I just watched Princess Monoke. I will be enjoying some of your book recommendations also. Thanks

  29. Oikawa's Milk Bread on February 23, 2022 at 11:20 pm

  30. Regina Grobosz on February 23, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    A wonderful room. I’m also a lifelong fan of Anne. And your dog is very nice ❤️. Remember, everything tastes better with a dog hair in it ;-)💖

  31. Bella Hynes on February 23, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    This is such a wonderful video:)) I love your whole aesthetic! I inherited my grandparents antique furniture, and I’m planning on styling my room like this but with more blues and less green. This video really inspired me to start collecting and planning!

  32. Kendrah S.B. on February 23, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    This is one of my comfort videos ❤️ I’ve rewatched it so many times

  33. Fridalina on February 23, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    This Video honestly made me happy.

  34. Stephanie G. on February 23, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    I’ve got to know where you got the Anastasia music box!! Loved this video!

  35. Sandra Storey on February 23, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    Oh my goodness!! It all came together so beautifully!!

  38. Becca Mitchell on February 23, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    Has she mentioned where she got the tea cup in the “blueberry lavender almond milk” section at 12:45? It’s incredibly cute!

  39. Perla • on February 23, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    My dream’s room, lot of love from Morocco

  40. carrie davis on February 23, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Absolutely adorable 🥰

  41. Rose G on February 23, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Lol your puppy is so cute 🥰♥️ especially when you guys are having tea time 🍵🫖 lol so so cute 💕

  42. Tugba on February 23, 2022 at 11:34 pm

    Ahh you’re so lucky for having thrift stores in your country, there is only antique shops here and they are soooooo expensive. Getting only one frame as yours would cost me everything you got for your room. Only modern furniture and accessories are cheap in here. It is so saddd

  43. Alexandra Meub on February 23, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    This video is such pure hufflepuff energy, you’re adorable!

  44. Lily Thayer on February 23, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Where is that absolutely stunning small jewelry box from?

  45. khonziwe sibanyoni on February 23, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    anyone know what show/movie she was watching? it sounded so familiar and I want to watch it.

  46. Lauren Allen on February 23, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    The styling of the pictures above the bed is my absolute favorite part of this room. What a clever and beautiful way to display them!

  47. Nickname 20 on February 23, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    omg girl that’s amazing!! And you still think dreams can’t become real? Well, this one can! It’s insane I love your room so so much xx❤️

  48. Dette on February 23, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    How old are you?

  49. Rebecca Castronovo on February 23, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    Are the flowers fake or real?

  50. Costanza Refosco on February 23, 2022 at 11:45 pm

    i teared up seeing the anastasia music box and once you played it. I feel like this is the life i’d like to achieve once i move out, music box or not 🙂
