If all goes well I can always use the #stylecure program and address my living/dining room some time in the near future. Hopefully, that's exactly what'll happen. In the interim, my brain is all a'dither with bedroom-y possibilities now.
So, according to our homework page, this month I shall do the following in my bedroom:
- paint or otherwise decorate the walls (one wall or more)
- add (at least) one new decor "pairing" to go with the refreshed wall (DIY project or purchase, big or small)
- deep clean the room
- organize the room (*gasp* oh gawd, I just realized that includes my closet - meep)
- evaluate the flow, lighting and accessories
As part of the assignment, I sat in the room for about 10 minutes trying to envision it different ways - empty, rearranged, etc. I found this process super motivating.
Finally, I took some before pictures from various angles. Wow, this room has so much potential now that I'm looking at it differently. Yay! I'm excited to get started.
|the south wall|
this corner is definitely the hot zone of the room - this is where all my pillows, blankets and laundry collect - also, that wee table with a book on it is my meditation altar, which clearly needs a better home
|more of the south wall and some of the west, also doors to the hall and bathroom|
|the east wall|
ugh, those verticals are so ugly - I need a pretty window treatment
|the west wall|
I've always wanted a makeup vanity and I think this would be a great place for one
|the corner next to my bed, here lies most of the decorative items I've collected for the room|
I'd really like to do something funky and pretty with that little table
|the door leading out to the hall|
perhaps some possible storage space?
|closet - right side|
the clothes are so tightly packed, I have a difficult time getting them in and out of the closet
|closet - left side ... don't judge me|
shoes are just piled up in a heap on the floor and stacked on the top shelf
|the ugly, built-in lighting fixture|
I hate this light - I have several ideas on how to camouflage or otherwise change it without doing anything permanent
