5 Room Must-haves: A Collab With Maria @ Maria Emrald

Hey guys!
I know I’m a girl but I seriously can’t believe football season is over! My team lost and it’s kinda devastating because I don’t really like the other sports (such as basket ball, basket ball and basket ball)…
Anyhow, I’m collaborating with my friend Maria today! I’m posting earlier than my usual schedule because my amazing friend lives over in Jordan! How cool?
We’re doing an ‘Around The Room’ challenge. Basically it’s where, we have to find objects in our bedrooms and make that the theme of our post!
My theme is decor (I’ll link Maria’s post at the bottom). I decided on it because, I’m an aspiring Interior Designer, I’m actually in the decorating mood right now, and (really, the only reason. The others just look good…), I have a lot of it. It’s kinda everywhere I look and in my face like “look at me!”.
…So without further ado, 5 must-haves for my room!


Oh, gosh, I have to have pillows and LOTS of them!
Like, what is a bed without pillows? What is napping without burying yourself in millions of pillows before you fall asleep??
Besides, pillows come in so many cute shapes and sizes, it’s IMPOSSIBLE to not try to own one of every kind right??
(Says the girl who has four pillows- in counting)


A room must have accesorizing lights, and that’s a given. I have two different kinds of lights, string lights and lanterns, but I’m still itching for a super nice lamp and maybe same candles?
I also like really want some of those geometrical candle and light holders…. as you can see I really am in the decorating mood!
Also, I know you can’t supply this, but has anyone ever noticed what sunlight does for an all most clean room? It makes it look a thousand times better for when your parents make a surprise appearance… Just trust me on this and don’t ask how I know… *haha*


Mirrors make your room look more open. They’re also really fun to play around with and make into collages!
I have about four mirrors in my room. Three small ones, two of those I have over my bed and a full length I just added last summer.
I really like those cute and creative shaped mirriors… I’m kinda toying with the idea of getting this cube like one I saw…
But that’s a topic for another day, onto number 4!


Notthing characterises a space more than a certain scent, right?
Maybe this is weird but I have two unofficial scents for my room:

  • Cucumber and Melon
  • Georgia Peach

The first is a stronger scent and the latter is a really soft scent. I alternate depending on my mood at the moment….
I used to have a little socket scent piece but my family moved shortly after it ran out of its scent and I lost it so, yeah, I’m due for another!

Bluetooth speaker

I think this falls in decor… does it? Okay, well, today it will!
Anywho, my room absolutely must have speakers and since my music is mostly digital (I only have like, 2, CDs) I prefer Bluetooth so I can connect my phone and keep moving.
I have a small karaoke machine and super adorable chrome, Bluetooth speaker from 5 Below.
So there is my 5 Room Must-haves!
What are must-haves for your room? Do we have any similar ones? Did you pique my pillow addiction?
