My room should be referred to as The Hideaway. Or The Cave. Or my Fortress of Solitude, but I've never been a Superman fan, so I think I'll refrain from that one. Regardless of what you call it, though, my bedroom is my place. I spend more hours in there being anti-social than anyone should, but it's comforting and quiet and I enjoy it. Plus my brother is down the hall, so it's not like I'm completely alone.
My entire life, my bedroom has been pink. When I was a child, it was a soft pastel pink, but when I turned fourteen I begged my parents to let me paint it a bright, Barbie, bubblegum pink. For many years it suited me well, until one day I woke up and felt like my room was a constant mess. I love colour, but all of the artwork and nicknacks I had collected made my room feel really cluttered with the bright walls. And so it was decided, that this past summer, it was time for a room make over.
So here are the results!
|My bed area! The art wall is one of my favourite parts of my room.|
|The antler's on the wall were a summer project; the white ones are made out of tape, cardboard, and wire!|
|I had exposed Polaroid film, so I printed out Instagram photos and glued them inside for makeshift frames!|
|The sequin canvas were a Christmas present from my super thoughtful friend, Beth. I mentioned I wanted to make them ONCE and she surprised me! :)|
I keep adding things here and there (such as a glittery fox mask from the kids department from H&M), but I think overall my room is officially done. :) Has your room undergone a make over recently? Or if you could, what would you change about your space?
