I love spa like bedrooms and want our bedroom to feel like that. We are still in the process of decorating but I feel so unmotivated to decorate (curtains, paint on walls, art, etc) beacuse we have a lot of trouble keeping our bedroom neat. I would love to blame it on my husband but really its both of us. I like things to be clean, but I seem to always have clutter around. My dirty clothes always end up on the floor of my closet rather than in the hamper. Darling Husband has a habbit of doing a load of laundry and never putting it away (just leaving it lay around until its all dirty).
So, does anyone actually keep up with an awesome looking bedroom?
For fun, here are the pictures I would LOVE to have my room look like:

My bedroom more or less looks like a bomb exploded. It’s so sad. At least I can keep the rest of the house pretty clean!

Our room stays pretty clean, but I usually have either a few pairs of shoes scattered by the closet (oops) or there will be laundry falling out of the laundry basket (FI, why is it so hard to get the t-shirt INSIDE the bag instead of flooping over the edge or on the floor nearby?). We both have our faults! However, we’re also both pretty good about making the bed, vacuuming regularly, and keeping the dresser & bookshelves tidy, so I’d say we do fairly well. I’m probably worse than he is!

Our house and bedroom appear very tidy and organized, but open the closets and watch out! I think a messy closet is just as bad as a messy room….I feel like Fiance “forks” piles of his clothes into the closet. It’s hidden, but it’s still a huge mess! lol.

With two cats, it’s nearly impossible to keep a nice house because they are constantly knocking things down, destroying my dresser, etc. We can’t even make the bed some days because our fatcat likes to sleep on the messy blankets…and he snarls if we try to move him!

I think once you decorate and it starts to look nice, you are more inspired to keep it clean and looking nice. My hubby put up new blinds in our bedroom, I finally got all our new bed linens assembled and they look so good I’ve been making the bed every morning! Not something that I’ve always done, but it just looks so much better made up.

Right now our bedroom is kind of bare because we just moved into a new place about a month ago, and are still in the process of decorating. We are also planning on getting a new bedroom set. I just recently hung some espresso colored curtains (I need dark curtains because I work shift work) and the really add some punch to the room! Overall we try to keep the bedroom neat, but our bad habits include putting clothes on the floor and for my husband, (same as yours, caszos) likes to do laundry, but leave it folded in the basket. He is getting better though!
I find it hard to sleep in a messy room, so that usually motivates me to clean it 🙂

@RoundtreeBee: I agree. We decorated our bedroom in March and ever since we both like to keep it looking nice. (New furniture, painted walls, new linens/curtains)

Well our room is clean if I would actually pick up my clothes off the dresser. Darling Husband will leave his clothes on the floor and I will put them into the dirty clothes. Our bed is only made once a week when the sheets get changed… I seriously need to have more time to do this… At least the Kitchen is clean.

Mine is generally clean and well organized, though I never make the bed. I can’t STAND clutter on furniture (desks, dressers) or posters on the walls. If you have a well designed room, it will look tidier than a blah room, even if it’s not.

OUr room is clean to an extent. Since it’s on our top floor (attic converted), no one goes up there and we don’t hang out in there except for sleep and playtime . I try to keep it tidy because clutter makes me go mad.
If our room was where everyone could get a glance in…it would look like the photos above.

I am trying to accept that our bed room will not be neat and organized. I think I am incapable of keeping it completely tidy. Right now I’m changing out seasonal clothes, so it’s worse with the huge pile of summer clothes on the floor and the box of winter clothes in the living room. I’m trying to get a better schedule where the more public areas of our house are kept pretty tidy and the mess is just in the bedroom, but right now even that’s a struggle. Plus, we have mis-matched hand me down dressers, no bed frame since we got a new cal-king bed, and no end tables. Plus our only lighting is a $6 walmart lamp. Bleh. maybe in a few years we’ll have a few bucks to put into our room, but it’s just not a priority right now.

Clutter makes me sort of crazy. I love baskets and drawers to hide stuff in.

My bedroom is always super tidy. If hubby leaves in the morning without making the bed, I will come home after work and make it, even though im going to bed in like 4-5 hours.
The only time it gets “messy” is when i need to dust. WE have a cat and it feels like sometimes i cant keep up with dusting!
