I redid my bedroom 6 months or so ago, but it's always such a mess that I never got around to taking photos of it. So, after a cleaning frenzy last weekend, here it is.

After years of living in a cave (navy blue walls and a twin sized matress on the floor to save space) I decided it was time for a more grown up room.

My room is tiny (9'X12') and very hard to take pictures of. My bed takes up most of my room, with only two feet or so on either side of it, but i love it.

It's all very symetrical, with my bed being right under my window. there was really no other place to put a double bed without it looking weird. And I don't know if you can notice... but i use the swirly bits on my head board to hold my curtains back

mounting my guitar on my wall was the best idea ever, it's up out of the way (but still in my face, so i'll actually pick it up and use it) and it's like instant art! I just love the colour of it popping off my wall colour. (eek! my doggy has scary demon eyes in this one!)

the painting on my wall is a copy of Starry Night I did for my art class (We were studying art history, were forced to reproduce a famous work of art)

and the other corner of my room, with my dresser, mirror etc. you can't really tell from the picture, but I actually only have about a foot of space from the corner of my bed to the corner of my dresser... it's a small squeeze.
You can just barely see my floor in this one. But when i was a kid we had to rip up my carpet because of allergies and with a lack of funds, my parents ended up just sanding down and staining the basic knotty tounge and groove floor boards that houses are built with... my parents hate it and keep tring to convince me to change it, but i think it's charming and matches my endtables, even if there are holes where you can actually drop stuff down to the ceiling of the floor below...

Re-doing my room is the best thing i've done. I never get sick of the colour and could spend forever in here, it's so peaceful and relaxing...well, at least when it's clean.

I couldn't wait to open this thread. I knew there was a french country bedroom waiting. I love the color of the walls!

I'm still deciding on the blue for my boyfriends apt(I'm taking over) I was thinking something a bit lighter and a truer blue. I'm also going to do a faux finish on the dresser and headboard because they're dark wood. Everything in there will be white, black, and silver. besides acc. of course.

It's inspiring to see this. you actually make me want to get up and stop being so damn lazy. thank you!

I love the color to and totally understand the feeling of a small room.  My bedroom when I was in high school was actually a laundry room so it was literally the same size as a double bed and only fit a twin bed and tiny little nightstand.  You did a great job  Grin

I love the color of the walls.  And I think it's cool to use the wrought iron of the bed as curtain tiebacks.  All of that hardware can be somewhat overrated and this is a good use of what you already have.
