It’s Here, It’s Here!

The long-promised post about my {not so} new room. There are still some things that I want to add/change {like this faux fur throw I’m jonesing for & the new desk that I recently purchased} but this at least gives you a little idea.

If I was really bad ass, I’d build you a model of how my room is set up. But Google Sketch Up is hard, y’all! You’ll have to settle for the written word, instead. {If anyone has tried Google Sketch Up and has tips, let me know!}

When you walk into my room, the far wall has a huge bookcase and the dresser with the TV/Wii. I tried really hard to get a good shot of the bookcase, but given space constraints it was not happening. Bummmmer. Here’s a peek at the contents of the bookcase:

You can tell that I’m definitely not a minimalist…hahaha. The top of the bookcase has an assortment of photos, a large lamp, and Sigmund the elephant. The bookcase contains lots and lots of books {duh}, including your standard fashion books, and some personal effects:

At the foot of the bed I have a storage chest; it used to be a purple toy box when I was little but several years ago my mom totally stripped it down, reupholstered it and added legs. It’s perfect!Note that when I bought this rug {which I was so stoked about!} I was still living in my studio apartment, and this size was the right size. It was not originally intended to be used in a bedroom. So I’m cheating by only sticking it halfway under the bed. I’m the only person who uses the non-rug side of the bed anyway, nbd.

I don’t know if you can tell from these photos, but two of the walls are the loveliest shade of pale minty green. I modified my original idea for a coral living room. Also, please note that the green sheets are my “spare” sheets; usually I use cuter beige and white damask print ones, but they were in the wash at the time!

And without my new desk, I’m still working from bed. So, now you know where I’m writing from.

Kate. I want to be you. Is that creepy? I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again: You have the best taste ever.
