Confession: My bedroom isn't exactly Instagrammable. I've got wardrobe cabinets, shelves, and a chest of drawers which make my room look stuffy and suffocating. But since I find joy in taking shelfies (check out Cosmoph Beauty IG, please), I wanted to invest in items that would turn any square photo into the most #aesthetic image.
Turns out, this IG-first bedroom makeover plan isn't so expensive! I didn't have to "renovate" my whole room because the small IG square photo didn't require a 360-degree view of my space. I just upgraded everyday items which would be seen in the frame. If you're curious to find out which items I got, read on!

Although it's always hot and humid in the PH, I got a duvet 'cos the cushy look is so perfect for IG. I also got duvet covers in different prints.

Natural light is still best, so I bought curtains that would let the sun in.
