I’ve always been drawn to spaces and room decor. I am someone that is internally very affected by my physical environment. If the space around me is not organized or feels off, I feel un-organized as well. I always take care to not only clean up the space around me, but fill it with things that I find beautiful and hopefully, others will too. When making decisions about what to put in my room and where to put it, I always just take into consideration what I think looks best, what looks most balanced, and what is the most functional for my room. Here are some images of my current space!
I love a white wall with a dark hardwood floor. I chose to keep the walls, curtains, and other items (my chest of drawers, desk, bedding) white because I think it makes a great backdrop for accents in the room. This way, I could place a hunter green settee in my room without it looking too overwhelming! I love this green settee and think it adds a perfect pop of color to my bedroom. It’s an antique my parents had had in the garage for years, and now it’s finally in the spotlight! I love to sit on it while writing blog posts or reading, and it’s a great place for people to sit when they come over.
I wanted my desk area to be two things: simple and chic. I like a clean space, especially when I’m going to spend time doing work there. For the surface of the desk, I keep a gold and white desk lamp, notepad filled with to-do lists, and a simple vase with flowers. I also keep my leopard makeup bag on my desk, because why not?! Leopard prints always look cute.
For my gallery wall, I just wanted a few images that I truly loved and that I thought would pull my bare walls together nicely. I opted for some cute Pinterest pictures mixed in with a few personal pictures as well, and made sure to place the frames in a not-so-even fashion on my walls.
My favorite part about my room is: my rug! I am in love with the rug (similar) in my room. I found it in the World Market a while back, and have loved it ever since. The World Market has such a great selection of rugs that are both cute and affordable! Back when I was shopping, I found that being in the market for a new rug and being on a budget didn’t really go hand in hand. Thank goodness for this store! Pink is first off, my favorite color, and this crazy patterned print just pulls together the neutral aspects of my room so well. I feel it adds so much style and I will add, it makes an excellent background for shoe photos.
