A Simple Modern Timeless Bedroom Twist – BEDROOM TOUR

Featured

Recently I have had to move bedrooms in our house and I have never worked so hard in my life. Moving pianos, furniture and bookcases etc to get everything rearranged and sorted and organised.

I haven’t had time to blog, filling up a lot of time with appointments during the day and medical stuff it has all been quite hectic for a different reason. I used to get bored, but life has been filled with new and different things which is what I had hoped for.

I finally moved to a different part of the house and can now relax. So will give you a little tour of my bedroom, as I hope you like it.

I got rid of a lot of stuff and sent them to op shops, anything designer I kept, of course. But I had to chuck out Jo Malone boxes and I even got rid of a Union Jack rug as it won’t suit what I have done. My taste has completely changed recently for some reason and I like the fact that you can turn something simple into something elegant and modern at the same time.

I think I have chosen a classic look.

The first thing you see when you walk into my room is the white desk with laptop on charge and music books and my CD’s on display.

Can you see my lavender pot just peeking through the white blinds?

I have a view!

Well, of the front garden… …

I have a little music section where I have my digital piano and my record player. Of course my first ever vinyl record was Katy Perry’s recent album released “Smile”. Fun fact: My next single which I will be releasing I used “Harley’s in Hawaii” as a song reference for it! but it has a bit of an r&b twist/sound to it, which is exciting. Anyways, enough about that….. Let’s get back to the room.

My wonderful Clover White Bookcase from Early Settlers has been one of my favourite objects in the room as it is filled with….. well, … books! My recent post 7 Tips on how to get motivated and feel unstuck and feel your best in 2021 in which you should definitely have a read! It is filled with some great tips and ideas on how to feel inspired and not stagnant in life. My current book I am reading was inspired by it, Seize the Day – Living on purpose and making every day count by Joyce Meyer which you can buy from Koorong Bookstore in Mount Lawley or online for around $20.

Having a more modern classic looking bed has really been a game changer for me. I also love my white fluffy throw rug that I can curl up in when watching TV, and I love the bedspread and quilt pattern. It has that filigree elegant look and still a hint of a royal appearance.

I really love the small cushion with the silhouette of a lady as it gives that more elegant look.

Isn’t it just stunning!

With the move I got given a white set of drawers to keep and it is big enough to put in necessities and casual dresses etc. I decorated it with a cream decoration of an Eiffel Tower and a Paris Box, and then I have my bathroom essentials on the left hand side at the top of it. The long thin mirror to the right I will be painting white when I can as I still like to keep the room white and black a little bit.

I like to keep things decorative!

So I decided to buy a bedside table that matched with my bookcase. I love how it all matches and I now keep things simple with one book on the bedside table instead of all piled up.

Then I have a rack of clothes alongside the storage unit.

I don’t have a wardrobe which I didn’t like at first, but I am slowly getting the hang of it.

I actually quite like it. It keeps things simple and I don’t have to store random junk up in a wardrobe filled with stuff you don’t actually probably need. I kept old royal books, Britain Magazines, Royal Magazines even a Harry and Megan Wedding book I got in England. Op shop time again….

It is best to keep things simple. Declutter your life, even I learnt that in “Confessions of a Shopaholic”. You learn a lot from Becky Bloomwood in the end. When you sort through old things that you don’t need it actually feels good to do a huge clean out. I even had London signs up in my room, but at the end of the day, I thought if I really wanted them I could re buy them at an opshop for $4 again, no biggy.

The dressing table was cleaned and I sorted through all my makeup. No flowers on the dressing table this time. I have flowers that I kept on my storage unit where the TV is which we will get to that in a second, but if I wanted flowers I can always buy some more. Fresh ones are on my writing desk, and they were $20 from Woolworths in Aldi in Kingsway here in Perth, Western Australia.

I organised all my eyeshadows together, and then foundation and Hydrating Glow Mist sprays together, and then brushes, mascara, eyeliner are all displayed on the table, and the lipsticks are to the right, in which I bought a Kim Kardashian one which I LOVE! I keep hairspray and a self tanning body lotion plus bronzer from MAC Cosmetics and then makeup remover.

This is the white storage unit I was talking about, and we mounted the TV up on the wall. It is lovely to be able to view from the bed, and yes, I have kept a few Britain magazines to keep to the side. There I have an Instagram Pastbook that was created from all my 2020 images on Instagram and a Victorian and Albert Museum book I created from all the images I took on my I Phone.

The small canvas print is a photo of my three sisters and I. The fabric boxes are great! and easy to chuck clothes in, or any spare things you want to keep from staying on the floor.

This laundry hamper I got yesterday I only got for $40 from Big W, and the picnic basket was $43 from Coweramup which is close to Maragaret River. I had a lovely drive to Dunsborough, and holidayed in the regional south-west of Western Australia in which I will do a separate blog for! So much to talk about, get excited about and see and do when I was there. Will fill you in on the adventure hopefully next week. So, the picnic basket is filled with all my vitamins and supplements and Rolled Oats when I have blueberry yoghurt for breakfast. The books displayed are Diana (about the Princess of Wales), New York in Bloom by Georgianna Lane – lovely, stunning photographs, How to be Parisienne, Love, Style, Life by Garance Dore and The New Fashion Rules by Victoria McGrath (InTheFrow), then you’ve got Althorpe by Charles Spencer, a $9 London book from BigW, Too Beautiful (Beauty Words for the soul) by Elaine Fraser and lastly, The Art of Herbs for Health by Rebecca Sullivan. These are all lovely books to have on display.

I would list all the supplements and products but just simply I have dandelion tea, white lions mane powder, vitamins for energy, hair, nails and skin, Collagen Beauty from NutraOrganics, and a few Isagenix supplements. I recently bought a huge tub of Fish Oil in which I take 2 supplements a day. Please visit my Health Based blog, Emmalisa Tilli Health and Wellness to find out more on what I do.

You can also find me on Instagram.

Thank you for reading and looking at my bedroom tour! That was the most exciting thing that happened to me the past week plus the idea of what is going to be my next single.

Please also visit my Facebook page, Instagram page and website for more details on my music life!

I will try and update my health & wellness blog and music blog as much as I can but I can’t promise anything as I have 2 courses to keep up with! Plus extra music/demo things on the side.

Thank you all for reading since 2015 if you have been a fan of mine since I started. It has been an AMAZING journey and I feel I have gotten better with content over time.

(If you are a writer, and would like to send something for me to review and collaborate with you, send your article to emmalisatilli86@gmail.com @exquisiteemmalisa I would love to work with you!

Tips for Thriving as You Adapt to Life During and After COVID-19


The COVID-19 pandemic has affected people around the world. Even with restrictions lifting, many individuals continue to struggle. The United Nations has even warned of a global mental health crisis as a result. Whether you are getting back out into the world or prefer to seek comfort in your own home, it’s important to take care of yourself during this time.

Making your mental and physical health a priority is paramount. That said, you aren’t in this alone. There are many tools and resources available to help you, even if you aren’t ready to leave the house yet. Read on for tips on how you can ensure you are looking and feeling your best as you adapt to life during and after COVID-19.

Revamp your home.

Your home should be a place that brings you comfort and makes you feel safe. Clearing bad energy from your home will create a more positive space. If you notice you’re feeling anxious or your family is arguing more than usual, it’s time for a deep cleanse. Open the windows to let in light and air, use a sage stick throughout the house, and get rid of clutter.

Pay special attention to the bedroom. Creating a relaxing environment here ensures you get the rest you need at night. According to The Age, as many as 40% of Australians don’t get sufficient sleep. Aim for at least seven hours per night. To make sure this is the case, eliminate extra light and noise from the room. You can buy blackout curtains and a white noise machine, for example.

Set new fitness goals.

If you’re still having trouble sleeping, ramp up your exercise habits. Physical activity will help ensure you are tired when the time comes to catch your zzzs. Exercise also promotes mental and physical health and is known to combat depression and anxiety. Setting goals can motivate you to work out harder. If you currently run one mile every day, for example, aim to increase it to two.

Look good for yourself.

If you’ve been spending more time in sweatpants and less time wearing makeup, you may be feeling the blahs. When you aren’t socializing as much or dealing with work-from-home stress, it can be hard to motivate yourself to put on a nice outfit or do your makeup. However, finding something stylish to wear, fixing your hair and trying a new eyeliner technique can make a big difference in your mood. To make sure you follow through, splurge on the mascara or eyeshadow collection you’ve been eyeing, or sign up for a new beauty subscription box. That little bit of pampering will go a long way

Tackle your anxiety head-on.

Anxiety isn’t just unpleasant mentally. It also impacts the body negatively. Anxiety can lead to headaches, a racing heart, difficulty breathing, upset stomach, and loss of libido. Be proactive about keeping anxiety at bay. Exercise is one way to help. You should also avoid triggers like alcohol and caffeine, which tend to worsen anxiety symptoms.

If you are still struggling, don’t be afraid to seek professional help. Mindfulness health and wellness coaching is one option. Mindfulness combats anxiety by forcing you to focus on the present moment. You can learn practical approaches to avoiding anxiety, like breathing exercises and meditation.

Find ways to socialize.

Another important step to combatting anxiety is to socialize. Seeing friends and family reminds you that you are supported and loved. Socializing is also proven to have concrete health benefits. It can lower your risk of dementia, for example, and even contribute to a longer life. Even if you are still socially distancing, find ways to connect—for example, via video calls.

With these tips, you can start paving the path to a healthier and happier life. The COVID-19 experience has been difficult but if you prioritize self-care, you will find yourself thriving.
