For my Four Walls
The best thing about the colder weather is definitely coming home, going into your bedroom, and wrapping yourself up in a huge blanket to make a human cocoon that you will stay in until you go outside again. Winter can be brutal, and there’s nothing better than a cozy bedroom to hang out in during those months. But making your bedroom super cozy is about more than just adding a few blankets and pillows – it’s a whole vibe that you create with decor, furniture, and colors.
Choosing the best paint color for a room is tricky enough, requiring at the very least putting paint swatches up on the walls for a few days to make certain you know what the color looks like in every light before committing.

Hang pictures without the trial and error: 1. Trace pictures onto brown kraft paper and cut out. Label each of the papers with a description of the picture or a corresponding number. 2.

Install picture-hanging hardware directly through the paper. Pull paper away and hang pictures one by one.
