room tour 2017

I’m a huge sucker for just tours in general; house, room, apartment you name it. I find them so helpful for decorating my own room, too. I also recently re-did my room this summer and wanted to do this before decorating for fall and winter, so here you go! I would say my room has a bit of a boho, minimal kinda look to it which is definitely a great representation of my style.

Also, if the lighting isn’t great in some photos, I’m sorry!! There have been a ton of wildfires in my area which made this thick layer of smog in the sky, so the lighting is super bad and fuzzy.

Above is just a quick overview of where everything is set up and such. I have a big space in the middle area of my room which I love for when friends are over, sleepovers, at-home workouts, etc.

First of all, to the left of my door, I have my laundry basket which is kind of random but I really like the material and use it as another surface a lot, too. On it I have really cute unicorn slippers, their too small for me but I love unicorns so I just keep them there.

Next to that I have my nightstand (from Fred Meyer!) I really love the vintage-ish vibe of it, which matches the rest of my room so well. In the bottom section, I keep all my library books because I’m a huge bookworm.

On the left surface, I have a DIY tissue jar, a “say yes to new adventures” quote card in a silver daisy display and orchid plant that currently has no flowers. On the right, I have my water which isn’t always there but it moves around and my black desk-style lamp. Above my nightstand I have a dream-catcher that I made when I was little.

Then to the right, I have my favorite part; my bed! I have this off-white fuzzy blanket/comforter from Costco and for pillows I have two light pink pillows and on top of those I have these purple ones which I love so much! In front of those four, I have a darker tan throw and a stuffed Pug I got from the fair.

Above my bed, I have these simple fairy lights from Target, a DIY hanging and then by my window, I have a DIY phases of the moon hanging. Also you don’t see most of them, but I also have these fake flowers hanging from my ceiling above my bed. Under my bed, I also have 3 bins that store random stuff, hamster stuff and workout clothes/sports gear and my violin.

Above my bed on the side I have my window; I love my window being right there so I can look out from my bed (kinda like a window seat). On my windowsill, I have my landline phone (so I can talk to people without using all my minutes) and a plant. I have a huge thing for plants and I love having them in my room! I also have my blinds which have a cool, old-fashioned draping valance.

Then, to the right I have my desk – the busiest part of my room. First, I have my 3-cube organizer, on top I have 2 fake plants (Michaels) and my planner. Inside, I have all my drawing, craft and school supplies in these crates also from Michaels. Leaned against my bed on the other side I have my Prismacolors.

Next, I have my desk, I spend a lot of time there doing homework, writing blog posts, drawing, etc. On my desk I keep my phone, surface, journal & pencils, pencil jar and lamp. I also keep more supplies in the drawer and art books in the “open drawer”. Underneath my desk on the bottom board of it I keep my CD player (yes I still listen to the radio a lot), camera bag/supplies and trash can. I also normally have some frames above my desk but I took it down as it reveals private information.

Then, I have my chair which is pretty plain except for these holes in the back and really uncomfortable so I added a blue seat pad.

On the wall next to my desk, I have this little heart-shaped photo/quote collage. I found some cute quotes and photos on Pinterest and some fake flowers as well as the owl around my room. I just taped them up with some cute tape in the shape of a heart on my wall.

Next, I have my dresser, it’s a pretty big one which I love. In it I store all my pants, pj’s, shorts etc. as well as all my products (I share a bathroom with my 2 younger sisters) and makeup. Above my dresser I have a shelf (it’s not in this photo but it’s in the first one). On it I just have a DIY frame, coke bottle with my name on it and my Polaroid camera.

On my dresser I first have my hamster cage; I have a hamster named Pepper! For decor, I have this wood tray with a teacup holding random jewelry (Dyso) and a random photo I found on Pinterest and this white owl candle holder (Michaels). On the top section I have these cute books stacked with a DIY flower C on top and my clock (Amazon).

To the right of my dresser is my full length mirror. I’m slightly too tall for it which is really annoying! Every morning, I sit on the carpet in front of the mirror and get ready and listen to music😂

Lastly on the final wall, I have my closet which is pretty big. Half of it is filled with clothes (tops) and the other half holds my bookshelf and is used for storage. On the mini wall to the right, I have this little jewelry hanger. Also, on the back of my door, I have my favorite hoodies on a hanger.

I hope you enjoyed and got some room inspiration!
