Times Two

As promised last week, photos of my bedroom at home! Please keep in mind that this room is far from what I would deem 'finished'. It is definitely a work in progress still!

(And I know the photos aren't the best quality, but you can click on them to view full size :) )

First up is the main item in the room, the bed. See the pretty graphic floral? On sale in winners :) The grey accent pillows came with the duvet and the shams, but they're not the greatest. I'm definitely on the lookout for something else, but these two are fine as placeholders for now.

This wall of my room has about 1'.5" or 2" between the bed and the wall; enough to walk comfortably (or store stuff hehe). But it needs something on the wall. You can kind of see a giant canvas in the bottom of the right photo, and I am thinking of painting it and hanging it in this blank space. It's covered in a pretty floral fabric that I was trying out as an idea, but I don't really like it.

On the other side of my room is my desk (which is a complete disaster at the moment, thus no photos of it haha), my bookshelf, and my dresser. On top of my dresser is this collection of things that need to find a proper home. The weird pink-ish jewelry box thing is getting painted, I just have to wait until I can open some windows and not freeze haha. And the frames need photos.

Not going to lie, I'm kind proud of this bookshelf :D I organized it while I should have been studying for exams and I think it looks kinda awesome. All the books are the books from my childhood. So there's some Animal Ark & Princess Diaries, and old books of my mom's like Nancy Drew and the Bobbsey Twins :) And there's even some photos of little me haha (I have some more detailed & better photos of it, but I want to blur some of the faces in the photos on the lower shelves so those will be up another day :) )

Here's a close up of that fabric from before. It's actually a scarf from H&M and I loved the pattern so much I bought it to frame. I was trying it out on the canvas because I don't have a big frame at the moment, but hopefully I can pick one up at Ikea soon!

And here's the second bedroom! This is my tiny bedroom in my tiny apartment at school :)

Since buying this bed, I've realized that I don't love really low furniture, but it hits at the bottom of the window, so it works in this room. We weren't allowed to change the wall colour, and technically I guess they wanted us to limit our use of nails in the wall, but I don't mind polyfilla-ing the holes when I leave :)

 Right beside my bed is this massive wardrobe that came with the apartment. It's not the best ever, but it works (and it's too big and heavy to move anywhere else...).

 Right beside the wardrobe is my little purple chair and my invisible book shelf :) And you may notice the same purple-y floral scarf on the chair haha (took these photos before I took the scarf home :P)

 Close up of my awesome invisible bookshelf :) The little blue elephant was a gift from my BFF (If you look at my bookshelves in my room at home, the strange little animals on the shelves are also from her...sensing a theme? haha)

And then on the other side of my window is my little collection of pretty things :) I bought the fake flowers years ago and found them last summer and knew immediately that they would look awesome in my Ikea vase thing.

And that is it! There is of course more to both my rooms, but I had to throw all my junk somewhere to take these photos haha :P

Thoughts? Comments? Questions? Keep in mind that both rooms are still unfinished and definitely not where I would like them to be to be considered 'done', but I'm pretty happy with the direction in both rooms.

Hope you all have a lovely day!
