I am moving with my dad when he gets a new house this summer. I can do anything I want. I have no furniture and am thinking of dark grey walls with one contrast wall I am thinking maybe galaxy? And as for the rest of my room don't know what to get as of furniture and stuff. I like the darker type nerdy tumblr rooms. I am gonna get Christmas/fairy lights. But don't know what else. Should I get a day bed double? I don't know! Help me please
oh my goodness I am so sorry for some reason this never showed up in my messages! this is probably way too late but i will publish it anyways. dark gray walls with contrast sounds great! the only thing is galaxy tends to be quite dark, and as a result in the winter months your room will most likely seem quite dark and gloomy. if you are set on a galaxy wall (which is an awesome idea!) then perhaps paint your walls a lighter gray :) day beds are fun but are mostly useful if you are planning on doing a lot of sitting against the wall - doubles are great because you can have a friend sleep over, it gives you more space and it gives you more room to express yourself with plushies/pillows etc. perhaps get a comforter/quilt that means a lot to you as a statement - there’s tons of cool ones in stores, or you can make a quilt out of old tshirts. I did the latter a few years ago and it looked awesome, plus it was full of great memories every time i saw it. if your room is big, maybe have an area with seating. this can be as simple or as elaborate as you’d like it to be, meaning you can just throw down some pillows or get some small chairs and couches. quotes on the wall is always a fun idea too. i hope this helped a bit - good luck!
I'm getting new bedroom furniture are there any key things I should get? Also I'm trying to make my room look rustic are there any must haves decoration things I should get for my room? I love looking at your blog for inspiration. Many Thanks x
For furniture, I find that a great dresser goes a long way - if you have a lot of drawers you can put everything that you want out of sight away and you’re able to display your favourite items on top. If you’re getting a bed, check out all the styles available because a bed is where you’ll be spending the most of your time, whether it’s sitting on with friends, lying on when you’re scrolling tumblr or (of course) sleeping on. You’ll want one that really fits you’re style. As far as rustic, wood is what really does the trick. I’m a big fan of rustic as well and I find a combination of wood with delicate metal accents can be lovely. I think every room should have a set of fairy lights as no matter the style they make every room instantly cozy and inviting. I can’t think off the top of my head of any particular accessories but I’ll post some rustic bedrooms for you for the next few posts so be on the lookout for those :) good luck!
this room here is mine and while it’s changed a bit over the past year since the photo was taken, it’s very similar. I have lots of stuffed animals (even though I’m 20 haha, but it keeps the room cozy), tons of fairy lights, a lot of books, posters, and plenty of tea and mugs on hand. I live in a dorm room so my room is quite small but I don’t have a roommate and I make do with what I have. I also love decorating my room for the holidays come December :)
