When I get home, it really won’t be the time to redecorate my room (I’m going to be a senior in college next year) but I can’t help wanting to anyway. I mean, my room hasn’t really changed since I was in 9th grade (when I painted the pastel purple walls sky blue) and a lot of my things still suffer from middle school. So at the very least I’m painting some furniture.
Regardless, I like shopping for ideas, and here are some images I liked…
I can’t construct a platform in the middle of my room and I don’t really have room for a lounge, but maybe one day (all though I might be more inclined to get something more couch like.
This just looks like such a cozy bedroom nook. I think the morning light helps, but I think that would be a fun room, or bed nook.
It’s a little too red for me, but I like the canopy and the wrought iron frame that doesn’t look super cheesy.
The Shore Club in Miami, I’ve never been, but I like all the lanterns and pillows and the way it’s curtained in. I want to put up curtains in my room but I don’t need the privacy, there’s a fan in the middle of the ceiling and the ceiling slopes on two sides, so… Plus my room’s really not big enough for a curtain to make any sort of sense, it would just divide up the room.
I guess my influence is pretty clear, a sort of Indian/Middle Eastern decor. I wouldn’t want to go too overboard, but a theme wouldn’t be bad. I know I’m not ending up anywhere like this for my first apartment (Ikea chic, I guarantee) but I guess that’s where touches come in – sheer curtains, lanterns? candles? patterns? colors? We’ll see…
(I’m sorry I don’t remember all the exact sources for the images, the Shore Club image is from their site, the one of the hallway is from a Moroccan rental company and the others are either from Domino or my new favorite decorating blog Rang Decor. At least I’m pretty sure that’s where they’re all from…)
