Bedroom Before:Not to scale floorplan. The bed was up against the wall with the dressing table beside it. The desk was at the end of the bed.
It did look cute, but it didn't really feel like a "real bedroom"
The computer didn't make the room feel like a relaxing safe haven of sleep. It made us feel stressed about homework and if one of us was staying up late studying the other would have to endure the lights being on when they were trying to sleep.
Not to scale floorplan. We moved the computer into the lounge room on a new white desk that matches mine in the lounge. We sold the old red desk and bought 2 new bedside tables from ebay for $12.50 each. The bed now sits in the middle of the room, giving each of us some much needed personal space. The dressing table sits at the end of the bed which gives us a pretty view to wake up to.
The yukata (summer kimono) sits above the bed in its new middle of the room position. Idealy the bed would be white, but that's not happening any time soon.
We each have our own reading lamps. Only $7.95 from Ikea.
My bedside table with my fave fashion magazine and kawaii bunny money box from Tokyo.
Henry's bedside table with an Architecture book and a replica eames chair from Tokyo.
My dressing table has too much stuff! The lamp is an ikea lamp that I actually bought off ebay.
Beside the window is a collection of Vintage Japanese ink paintings. I want to get them framed as soon as I have some money.
What do you think? We are so much happier with the new layout. It's like a real adults bedroom now (kinda, all the pink girly things still make it very "me")
