Another goal I had for myself this year was to take styled pictures of where I live. Now to most of you around the blog world that would translate into styled pictures of their entire home. My living situation is too complicated, and personal (I try not to get too deep or sad around here) for the blog so I'm sharing the room I love and spend the most time in: my bedroom. The best part of having a bedroom all to yourself is you can have it as girly and colorful as you want it to be.
Love, love, love my iron trolley nightstand. Not only is it in my favorite color, vintage, on wheels, it can serve as a hundred different things. Right now it's a nightstand, but in my next place it could be bathroom storage or a bar cart. The painting, entitled No Turning Back, is from Urban Outfitters. I fell in love with it online and then waited to long to buy it and it became out of stock. A few months later I was in an Urban in Florida, and to my surprise saw the painting. I snatched it up and had it mailed to my house. I love all the colors in the wave.
My Glasswing Bedding, from Anthropologie, that I adore. Mainly because it has all my favorite colors: navy, teal blue, and yellow. I bought the shams when I was still employed at Anthro and then successfully hunted down the duvet on ebay for a great price. I made the fabric garland to match the duvet and to act as a temporary headboard.
My love of yellow continues around the room. Two of the walls are a light grey and the others are a nice sunshine yellow. I DIY-ed my dresser well before I painted my walls in a similar color, but I think the tone on tone looks nice together.
I love vintage toys, books, and pictures from the past surrounding me in my daily life. The little chevron bowl keeps all my pretty brooches as well as pretty shells I've collected from many trips to the beach.
Meet Giuseppe, my paper mache giraffe. It's a piece of art that I love, and always gives my visitors a smile.
The Ikea Expedit bookcase is the perfect storage solution for small spaces. Everything that I want access to is all stored in this. Books, crafts, movies, office supplies, and decorative knick knacks can all be shown off and organized in one convenient spot.
No styled room shoot is complete without some coffee table book love. Of course copies of Domino, and Decorate had to be shown off.
I hope you've enjoyed a peak into the four corners of my little hideaway.
