So you’re looking to redecorate your space into an aesthetic bedroom worthy of your favorite Korean dramas, but you don’t know where to start? Well, we’ve already listed down a number of affordable items you should consider buying, along with decorating tips based off the most stylish K-drama bedrooms we’ve seen. That said, if you need a little bit more inspiration to start you off, then you definitely have to see this event stylist give her sister’s bedroom a Korean-style makeover.

A self-proclaimed K-drama noob-turned-full-time-fan, 29-year-old Zarla Antonio grew addicted to watching Korean shows during the pandemic, much like the majority of us. “I think one of the reasons why I got hooked on K-dramas were the cozy and chic interiors of the sets.” 

Speaking of interiors, while an event and shoot stylist by profession, her visual-centric job has also recently given her the opportunity to explore interior design, not just as a hobby, but as a potential career in the future as well. So, of course, when her sister asked her to reimagine her bedroom, Zarla naturally put her two ongoing interests to work!

For the non-K-culture fans out there, you may be wondering what exactly makes a Korean-style room. Well, if you're not into watching K-dramas or Korean vloggers on YouTube, according to Zarla, it's often light, cozy, and leans more towards a modern boho-chic vibe. It also comes in neutral and pastel shades, hence the salmon-painted accent wall in her sister’s new bedroom.

Zarla adds, “[They’re also] completed by cute and unique accessories such as macrame hangers, modern graphics, buri/rattan/abaca decors, and minimalist lamps and vases.” Peek the customized arch mirror atop the dresser, the handwoven baskets, the buri mat, and the rattan droplight that Zarla incorporated, below.
