Are you a music fan looking to express yourself a little better? Whether you’re a lollipops n all Katy Perry fanatic , Blur fan or a grungy Nirvana aficionado, there’s no better way to pay tribute to your favourite artists than by redecorating your bedroom with their paraphernalia. Here are a few tips on how to turn your bedroom into the perfect groupie’s paradise.
Build a CD wall
While digital MP3 players continue to dominate the music industry, we could find ourselves at a loose end when it comes to using our old CDs. Just because you don’t play them any more though, doesn’t mean they can’t lend your room a little decorative splendour. You can head over to any reputable decorative retailer for zany CD racks, either wall mounted or shoved alongside the edge of your bed, and perhaps even arrange them by artist preference as opposed to the traditional alphabetical system.
Open your eyes
Of course, any true music fan knows that music is about more than just the sound; it’s also the visual. Bedstar have been a supplier for more than 100 years of comfortable, sleep easy beds that can even accommodate televisions – perfect for watching all your favourite music videos and concert DVDs. Just make sure you’ve got a dependable bed side table so you’re not losing your remote under the covers.
Go poster crazy
Gone are the days of Smash Hits and Top of the Pops magazine giving you unlimited access to images of All Saints to blu tack to your bedroom wall. That’s no excuse not to pay tribute to those artists though – in a world of digital imagery, it’s only too easy to head over to Google and print off a picture of your favourite heart throb or poetic lyricist. You could also personalise it a little if you know what you’re doing with Photoshop.
Perfect your reading material
If you like entertaining guests, one way of ensuring they get to know a little bit more about you and your favourite artist is to always have a good supply of music magazines hanging around. This can be anything from old faithful NME to specialist genre magazines, such as acoustic or heavy metal. Not only do magazines make your bedroom look warm and welcoming, they’re also a great way of chilling out and reading up on your favourite artist while you’re relaxing on your bed.
