For me, there is something cathartic about designing. I like being able to bring elements together and make them my own.
During the warmer months, I’m not so worried about my bedroom since I’m really only in it to sleep. However, it’s now autumn and we’re on the way to winter and the weather is getting much cooler, making me reevaluate what I want my space to feel and look like. Making my living area something I love has been on a long list of things to do. In the past few weeks I’ve been collecting inspiration and looking for the right pieces to go in my room.
To me, a room should consist of four things: comfort, personal style, many books, and a glorious bed. Lucky for me, I already love my bed, it just needs a bit of a makeover in the sheets and duvet cover area.
I’ve decided on a reading corner with my favourite books as decoration. I’ve been looking for the perfect chair to accompany my much loved books but I’ve come up empty handed. When I brought this up with my dad, he told me that there was a great chair in the basement that I could reupholster and make my own, now I’m on a search for fabric!
Here are some pieces I’ve seen around random antique shops and interior design stores around South Western Ontario.
Of course a good room redecoration wouldn’t be complete without some inspiration from Pinterest, check out my For the Home board for my home inspirations. The following photos are just a couple pieces of inspiration for me from Pinterest.
I love the idea of a cool toned wall with warm accent pieces in the room. I’ve decided on grey for the walls, but looking at all my options is overwhelming. Any suggestions?
I love style, however I don’t think a room should be overly put together. Organization is a must but comfort is key.
