Behind the Scenes
A lot of things go on behind the scenes when people are in the privacy of their own homes. As for me, I usually end up dancing and singing along to random songs as loud as possible until someone makes me stop. (cough* cough* Sophie cough*) Sometimes humming is not tolerated by certain sisters either. I am a person who likes to keep very busy, but when I am home, I want my room to reflect my personality. Recently, I updated parts of my room. I had a strike of luck when friend was redoing her room, and gave me her Lilly Pulitzer bedding! Part of the reason this was so lucky for me, was because I had been wanting that rose bedding for a year or so and it is now discontinued. I did get my monogram added to the throw pillow. I really love roses! (yes, I'll admit to the cliche.) In fact, I have never decided whether I liked pink roses or red roses more.
I looked on Etsy for decor items that went along with the rose theme, and found a fun handmade pillow, and an original painting from a woman in Italy. If you are looking for a cheap website to buy custom frames, check out www.arttoframe.com The other new things are, a mirrored desk, acrylic chair, and a new headboard which were all found on Amazon. Sitting at my desk makes doing homework a little more bearable.
My room has slanted ceilings, so storage can be an issue. I hang some of my favorite things on the walls; musical instruments, hats, and ballet shoes. "These are a few of my favorite things." - Sound of Music. My sister, Sophie, moved into a new house at college this year, and she found a cute idea on Pinterest. She painted terra-cotta pots with gold acrylic paint, planted cacti and succulents, and added pink aquarium rocks on top. This is a fun, easy craft, and hers turned out so cute, that I decided to do it for my room as well!
The main feature in my bathroom is an antique piece that is home to my makeup collection among other girly girl items. I hope you enjoy these pictures of my room all picked up. The inner neat freak in me is always in a struggle with the free spirit part of me that loves to be busy and creative, so you never know which way it will be behind closed doors.
