For the past six years I haven't had a permanent space of my own, bouncing between college dorms shared temporary apartments. So now living with my parents again for an undetermined amount of time, I have regained ownership of my old bedroom that has undergone many functional changes since my absence but no significant makeover since I was twelve. Yikes. The walls are a baby blue with a carpet a few shades darker, covered in unidentified stains from over the years. What is left of the furniture is mismatched at best, and piles of belongings sit in boxes around my room from lack of any proper places to put them.
So I have decided to undertake a large and expensive project (out of my own pocket!) for the next couple weeks of redoing my entire bedroom and creating a space that is comfortable, functional, and stylish. Not having any experience in home decorating from the floor up, the process was overwhelming and intimidating at first. With no idea where to start, I went to furniture stores hoping to stumble upon inspiration and found it.
While I was shopping around, I noticed black/white is very hot at the moment, as is damask. So I gave into the trend and at least it'll make it easier to find matching accessories, but I also didn't want to get carried away with a single motif or too busy of prints. Here's a few things I found at Target that caught my eye that I may incorporate into the room decor.
My carpet was the most expensive purchase so far, right at 1k, and is due to be installed around the 1st of April, the same week the rest of my furniture is supposed to be in. It's a race against time to get this all completed before Easter, otherwise I won't have a place to sleep when the spare bedrooms are invaded by relatives.
More progress updates to come! Any guesses on what colour of carpet I bought?
