We're back with new reveals from our Midtown Overhaul renovation project and this episode has 11+ helpful tips and affordable fixes to help you transform your bedrooms into welcoming retreats with all the perks of hotel living and the comforts of home! What's your bedroom vibe? Colourful, softly gilded and quietly luxurious? Or neutral, textured and beachy yet sophisticated? Tune in to find out!

11 Top Takeaway Tips: Girls' Bedrooms

1. No two bedrooms in a home should feel the same.

2. Try a different colour palette for each bedroom.

3. Put a desk in the guest room for added functionality.

4. Double dressers provide a spacious surface for guests to spread out their things.

5. Consider both the form & function of your furnishings when redesigning a room.

6. A mirror above a desk creates a beautiful reflection when placed opposite a window.

7. Crave neutral instead of colour? Focus on textured elements to bring your room to life.

8. Try repeating small details between rooms for an added layer of cohesiveness.

9. If you spend savvy during the project, you can splurge on artwork at the end.

10. Go for WOW by custom printing and framing an extra large photograph.

11. Embrace an older home's existing sconce placements by installing modern ones in their place.
