my room is in the basement and it's kinda small.. there is two rooms
I only have a small window where the "&" is..if that matters. I obviously don't get much natural light.

appreciate that piece of work above haha oh that was frustrating --too bad i don't have a digital camera on hand... uh yeah well thats my room with bed to give some emphasis on size.. all the walls of course are supposed to be flat.. and the "back room" to the left does actually have the angle somewhat looks like that..but the wall itself is flat! I am horrible at ASCII but besides that..
I need help! I wanna paint my room but I have so many ideas running thru my mind I can't decide.
I like natural colors of browns and such. I also really like moroccan inspired rooms--reds, oranges, gold, green, and spice colors; like peprika and gourd etc. .a little bit of rich purple. I love the energy from a red room.. but also the calmness of blues and brown. And since I have sort of two rooms (a tapestry between them) I could do a couple different things.. but I'd like to have them go together.
I was thinking of several different colors in one room --at least two-- and blending them into eachother with a large paintbrush leaving strokes .. I'm good with paining.. I'd like it to look like an artist went wild in here haha..
I like dark colors but I'm afraid it will make my room look even smaller..and then I also don't get much natural light. ----ooh what's a good plant I coul have down there that dosen't need like any light? i love plants but it's a drag cuz they die on me in the basement.. or dust mites attack for some reason.
and does anyone have any ideas of how I could put it toget to look like it was here for 60/70's style. I like it to look original--not like flower and peace decals everywhere but like actual time period-like. with the ugly gaudy stuff that i like so much.. and peacock feathers I loove the colors in them...
and one other thing.. I haven't got flooring yet--just sealed concrete floor with a bunch of area rugs. I need something on the cheaper side.. because most my money is going to more guitars and equipment..heh.
I like how in old homes from like late 1800s (i guess) the wide boards of wood. I was thinking of how i could put boards of wood down and paint them (yes more color to go on the floor!) --or laminet, vinyl, maybe berber carpet.. Something easy to clean and keep the bugs and mites in site ew i hate the thought of them hiding out in the carpet.. haha ok...
hope that makes some sense sorry its so long..
i'm very open minded so please-- anyone have ideas how I could put this together?
