thanks everyone for all your nice comments! i actually finished the room last summer, but it got messy before i could take pictures and i only recently found time to clean it up.
Oh a clean and organised space is such a pleasure to live in....doesn't last more than a day in my case!
Just an idea for your books though--how about an unser the bed box for the smaller and paperback ones. Then you could slide it in and out of the way, but still have your books nearby!
i really like your idea, it works really well for me cause i do most of my reading in bed...i just need to find boxes that aren't plastic looking cause my bed is quite high off the ground and you can see right under it.
It's really lovely! Did you paint your bed? Is it black or a dark brown? My mom has an antique iron bedframe she is saving for me for when I move and it is white at the moment but I like the way yours looks.
the bed is a really dark brown..didn't paint it, got it at IKEA...if i were you and i had an antique white bedframe, i'd leave it as is and work my room around it...just my $0.02...
