Just treat it like everything else in your marriage -- negotiate. Divvy up what parts of the house you can go full girly on and what parts are his bastions of manliness.

Who knows, apparently some dudes like cute stuff and are totally into letting their SO's kawaii take over everything so they don't have to look gay to their friends (just whipped). Or at worst he lets you know he would like the living room to match his xbox better and then the two of you can figure out how to both be happy in that shared space.

I'm married too anon. Most of our house is our normal tastes, I dont want to be controlling and I want him to enjoy the space too. But I have one seperate room that i go full ham in. Its my dressing room. It doesn't have a bed but it has a vanity and closet for lolita. I put all my girly cute stuff in there.

I want to post it in these threads one day but its still WIP but finally getting close to done

My boyfriend of 5+ years ideal room is a white box with a desk, his computer, and maybe one large mural painting. No clutter. No nothing.

I'm the complete opposite.

I love over decorating and like cute things. Our last apartment was decorated in pink and blue hue lights, my action figures, and cute things like animal pillows and such. He doesn't care as long as I'm paying for it and he doesn't have to help / clean up. Only rule was I don't touch his desk aside from to clean it.

Just talk to your SO and see how he feels, yeah? It helps to have different rooms with different styles too, you can make a cute girly room without going straight pink and flowery. Our den/office space is teal, gold, white, and decorated with things like ferns and hanging plants. On and around my desk I have a lot of my stationary and small pictures on the wall which keeps where I am most of the time feeling comfy.

Picture attached is our "entryway" into the den area, not saying it's anything impressive or to write home about, but I think it's girly enough without being in your face (coat rack and Polaroid board are both from Ikea).

How do you gulls deal with dust? I’m a collector, very attached to everything I own and want to have it on display 24/7. My room used to be like a cute comfort cocoon filled with my favorite things floor to ceiling. I recently purchased an apartment with my SO and moved to a large city - now everything gets covered in dust on the second (third if I’m lucky) day after a major clean. I’ve since put everything away in boxes/containers and now my bedroom feels so barren and doesn’t bring me joy like it used to.

Incoming selfpost. I just wanna show off the lights, they really give my room a very nice pinkish glow at night. Totally reccomend swooping in on some since it's the holiday season and some might possibly go in sale sometime after Christmas. Still need to do some improvements, though... like finding a better place for the random stuff hanging on the wall.

>>10055209
Glass display cases, air filter, and/or just a routine to clean once a week?

I live in the exact opposite of a large city (for now) and my stuff barely gets dirty even after months. The air here in general is cleaner, but I also do my best to keep my room fairly "contained", rarely have the vents open and keep my door closed. I can kind of get away with it because I'm in a pretty chilly basement and my room is a reasonable temperature when it's closed off in such a way... at least when it's wintertime. I have a desk fan to cool me off if I need it and a warm bathrobe/blanket if I get cold.

Hopefully you find a good solution, I'm kinda the same way; I'd probably curl up and die if anything happened to a lot of my stuff and my room is the sanctuary that I know I'm going to miss a whole lot when the time comes for me to move in with my s/o.

Any inspo for rentals where you have to have most of your life in one room and don't have the freedom to alter much? I'm lucky to have a 180sqft/16.8sqm bedroom, but it's in a shared apartment with no communal areas except a tiny bathroom and a galley kitchen. I have to eat, iron, have guests over and hang laundry to dry in my room and I always feel like things are cluttered even though my furniture is pretty nice and I don't have any collectibles or many non-essentials apart from my lolita wardrobe.

I used to think I'd just be living like that for university but I've slowly come to accept I'll probably be in similar places all through my twenties. I considered switching to a single bed and using the extra space for a sofa to make more of a living area out of it, but my partner sleeps over a lot and they want me to keep the double.
>>
>>10055568
They're actually just generic Christmas lights my mom got ages ago and I thought they were a good alternative to having the actual room light on at night. I think just searching "multi color white chord christmas lights" will get you what you're looking for. They're also not quite that bright irl but they're still very cute nonetheless.

>>10055571
The desk itself is the Axess Computer Desk by South Shore. I got it from Wayfair, it also comes in black, brown, even grey surprisingly. The top part is a part that comes with it (you can just take it off if you don't like it) and I actually decorated it with washi tape (the width was just right!) I probably wouldn't know what the attachment itself is called or if it's avaliable anywhere seperately.

>>10055815
Thank you! Lilligant has been in the top 10 faves for me ever since it was first revealed, and imo a lot of Gen 5 Pokemon are some of the most solid designs in the series.

>>10055830
Have you maybe considered one of these beds? They're big enough for two people and you can put things inside of it. Maybe just having a bed in general that has storage space underneath (drawers, for instance).
>>
>>10055928
>Maybe just having a bed in general that has storage space underneath (drawers, for instance).
I already do, I've got a metal frame bed and keep stuff like suitcases, petticoats, packing materials, out-of-season clothing, etc. in plastic storage boxes underneath .

Unless hubs is the cook ofc. But that’s not the case in most marriages even today. This is the Chan, not tumblr...we say it like it is. Still, frilly-fying the bedroom isn’t always the smartest idea unless hubs is into it. I won’t do that to my hubs but I’m decorating our kitchen pretty for myself, which is why I suggested that.

Judging from most of the posts I usually see in this thread though it’s girls still living at home so they make their bedroom cute.

Actually decent taste but just for inspiration because it’s not their room.

Most lolitas don’t care beyond the outer layer of their lolita clothes, and that’s where they spend their money so their rooms are actually basic and nothing special unless they are somewhat the lifestyle lolita type.
It’s a shame too because all the so-called ‘taste’ is just about their fashion aesthetic and sometimes where they go wearing it, nothing further.

Most lolitas are 29 days sweatpants and 1 day frilly per month.

Anyone have inspo for achievable gothic decor when you're renting somewhere with strict rules? Everyone on youtube or instagram that I see has their own house or landlords who let them do whatever the fuck they like, and meanwhile I have hideous brown industrial carpet and yellow walls that I can't even put pins in. I understand that obviously the rooms where you can go all out are going to be the most popular, but I want to make this space look reasonable for the rest of the time I'm here and not like "here's 3 skull shaped things lined up on a fugly dresser and a sad mosquito net draped over my bed"
>>
>>10071525

There's the option of using liquid starch to stick fabric to your walls like wallpaper, then when it's time to move out you wet the fabric until the starch dissolves and the fabric comes off. It's pretty time-consuming and labour-intensive, though, so if you're not really renting for a particularly "worthy" period of time it really is easier to just put 3 skull-shaped things and a mosquito net in your room.

Similarly, curtains, if it can be taken down (plus some blinds can also be taken down for washing), then you can commission replacement ones in gothic fabric of your choice. But you gotta consider that it's not cheap, and likely to be a sunk cost, as you'll likely need to custom size it to your rental and won't be able to reuse it when you move.

For the walls you can't put a pin in, there's Command hooks, although be warned it can have its problems -- my older hooks took the paint off with them when I removed them (ironically I needed to remove them to paint the wall, lol).

There are also vinyl wall decals that are removable, but they come with the same issue as the command hooks.

Lastly, maybe you can discuss things with your landlord. If you agree to repair and repaint the walls for them for free when you move out, they might let you paint it another colour and put pins in it now. Yes, it costs double money to get things the way you like it, and then costs money again to put things back the way the landlord wants it when you move out, that's why most people stick with 3 skull-shaped things and mosquito net over their bed.

Brown carpet and yellow walls don't really seem that bad anyway, you can go the whole death bleached-bones theme and do white skulls with white furniture instead of gothic arches.

That idea of going with white and like...desert graveyard? is pretty much exactly what I was looking for - it's just hard to think of that sort of stuff when everything is like...white walls and black carpet or black/red/silver everywhere. They definitely won't let me repaint but that has given me some ideas to work with, thanks!

Hey anon, I think it's cool you've surrounded yourself with things that you love and hell, if you like your room then that's ultimately all the matters. From an interior design point of view however, it's a little muddled.

In my opinion the shade of blue makes it look a lot like a child's room, also the display of all your items looks kinda haphazard. I think a pale wall shade would look so much better, even a soft white - when you have so much stuff to display, keeping the wall colour clean and simple can really help.

I would recommend looking up some stylish 'otaku' rooms to see how they have tackled displaying their items. Also if you really love your blue walls, then consider how others have used that same shade and made it work.

Best of luck anon.

really depends on your room when it comes to layout ideas. If you are familiar with aquatic plants I'm sure you know that some are easy to keep and others are pretty hard. Same goes for houseplants. The plants on this list are almost anubias tier level of easy.

Just make sure they get some light and you don't over water them. Actually with a fishtank it's almost like cheating since you can water if your waterchange water which is a free fertilizer.

also something fun you can do is grow houseplants out of the tank. They improve your water quality by a lot and you never have to water them.
I also have a fish bowl going with a Monstera (same plants as in the picture) and aquarium plants.That houses some shrimp without a filter super easy to take care of.

I really believe that the incorporation with houseplants and aquariums is gonna be the next big thing for the hobby. It only has benefits if you can deal with a semi open top and quite excessive root growth.

I hope that wasn't too ramble. I'm curious about your tanks tho. What do you keep?

>>10079778

>>
>>10091536
Many of the indoor orchids are actually really freaking easy, they don't need direct sunlight (just a little light from time to time). You just pour a crapload of water in them about once a week and don't water them if the soil is still wet when you check, and you get pretty flowers. They're also a really nice pop of colour, but they do hate being cold (i.e. don't put them in the window on a frosty morning).

Ah I love that plant guide, it's a great starting point. I've been considering Monstera deliciosa and Kentia palm so it's nice to see them on there - I wanted something big and bold to start with and they seem perfect for that.

>>10091715
I'd like to try growing houseplants out of the tank, my larger tank has a small sump at the back so it's something I could experiment with. Also kudos for keeping plants with your axolotls, they make such a difference to water quality (plus a canopy to hide from the light), I don't know why more people don't try it.

I have two small (25l) cube aquariums that I set up using the Walstad Method - one with a male betta and very bright light, and the other with a female betta and bare minimum led light. The larger cube aquarium (55l) isn't Walstad style and requires basic ferts - there's only ember tetra and a zebra snail in there right now, my old betta of 5 years used to be in there and passed recently.

that's what I initially wondered too. I saw a thread in a collectors group though about dust and a lot of people suggested air filters + constant change of filters, keeping vents closed up etc. so I guess that's one way of doing it.
>>
>>10092962
I think it depends where you live - it's not super dusty where I live, so it's like a once a week wipe down job that you do along with hoovering, which I think is a reasonable amount of cleaning to do.

How can anyone be a neet and have enough money to have a Lolita wardrobe? The reality is that most people in our generation don’t own a home, and shared common areas is going to limit decorating outside of your own room.
>>
>>10098820
How can you afford a lolita wardrobe and not be able to afford your own apartment, or at least split one with a partner?

>>10098838
I live in the most expensive region of the US (albeit not the most expensive neighborhood) and my 1-bedroom is only $1200. I actually went on a lolita hiatus after graduating college and only restarted when I got a good job and moving into my own place, after a couple of years scrimping with roommates. I still feel like I’m wasting money sometimes but seriously, some people need to get life priorities straight before they blow all their money on designer clothes
>>
>>10098809
Because I'm still chasing the homeowner dream. Currently sharing a house means I get a much nicer kitchen, living room and entertaining space compared to if I had my own place, plus I can save up for things that aren't just frills. A small, well-located single-person apartment isn't super expensive, around $950 a month (a large one where you could actually have people over to entertain etc is more like $1300-1600), but my double room in a townhouse in the same area with an actual back yard and my own bathroom is $600 a month. So I can save for an actual house more easily but still have money to enjoy myself.
>>
>>10098860
That’s fair, since you’re saving intentionally and have a goal in mind. I just don’t understand people who live with their parents as adults when they could afford to move out if they managed their time and money better. But I guess it’s more common in other cultures

I don't get it if you're just being a lazy shit and not learning to adult but I have seen some (Asian) parents make it impossible for their children to the point of ridiculousness. I had an ex who was still expected to live at home until he moved cities for work, and even then he was still putting "his" money into his parents' account. His rebellion was to buy himself expensive hobby things like a nice car, taking flying lessons etc. as that was the only way he didn't have to give them money, and I suspect he only got away with this because he was a boy. Even if he showed reasonable financial acumen e.g. researching into property or investments, the parents would use "family money" and take all the credit for the idea "they" had to invest, or blame him if it didn't go well. He would have lost the money that they had in "savings" for him had he rebelled and set up independent finances, which was in the tens of thousands, and obviously probably would have been disinherited from all the property and things they had acquired....I presume now that he's getting married they are going to let him have access to that, but big yikes.

Wow this kind of gave me flashbacks to my parents arguing about that.

My dad was the exact same way. When he married my mother, instead of moving into their own house despite him having a good career, they lived in his parents' place for years where his mother treated my mom like shit. Eventually she made him move out, and he finally got his own bank account.

I haven't really heard of too many asian parents among my peers doing it today though. Even my most coddled Asian friends (and I, I suppose), have had to figure ourselves out financially after we graduated. Idk if your boyfriend just has extremely old school parents. For the record, my parents married in 1985.

>>10098971
I think it's his father who is very traditional (which means,of course, that it's irrelevant what his mother thinks) and they are first-generation migrants who came here when he was a toddler in the early 90s. I suspect the people whose parents are like that probably don't get as much chance to socialise or make friends, so it is probably more common than we realise, those would be like...the quiet/weird ones who keep to themselves. I only met him after he'd moved cities for work and he was definitely a bit socially awkward still. I do agree that it's mostly more the generation before this one though.

Bowl looks great anon. I love how jungly it is, plus there's just something really appealing about an illuminated orb type shape. I'd like to try a large bowl myself, as well as set up a larger 120l+ aquarium for a small community.

Pea puffers are amazing - the most pet-like fish I've ever owed, plus they are incredibly smart as well. I had a pea puffer for a few years, sadly it was electrocuted in a faulty heater incident that I won't go into, but I'm genuinely still not over it(!). I probably won't get another until I can find somewhere that's captive breeding - I know their decline in the wild isn't entirely due to the aquarium trade, but I feel like the little guys need a chance to recover.

Anyway thanks anon, been good to share aquarium stuff on here and best of luck with future projects!

I know the image limit is already reached, but I still hope I can get some help or suggestions.

I am dissatisfied with my apatment's decoration.
It's my husbands and my first appartment and to find a compromise for both of our tastes we decided to decorate it in a baroque/vintage aesthetic, but everything being black/grey/white. It's a really nice apartment for gothic lolita so to say.
But I love pastels so so much and I obviously bought quite a few pastel things (like plushies, figures, flowers and stuff) to put on shelves. But I feel like it's really clashing.
Can anyone suggest me how to bring in colors in this black/grey/white apartment?

All our walls are white, which I regret doing. They look really empty, because I don't even know what to put up. The only thing that's on my walls currently are shelves or black picture frames with colorful pictures in them.
>>
>>10102575
I actually think you have a lot of options anon. Greys, black and white and pastels can actually look fantastic together, especially pastel and dusty-pastel pink. If you were to say, just put up shelves with your plushies on one wall it wouldn't look right, but if you start to bring in pops of pastel into your décor it will start to tie in. Think fabrics (especially cushions and bedding), mirrors, wall art, ceramics and lamps. You could even break up your white walls with a pastel feature wall or use thick bands of colour in stripe form. You needn't do this throughout your home either, even if it was restricted to one room, if you stuck to the aforementioned formula it wouldn't look too out of place.

Houseplants go a long way in making your house look like a home, I love the succulents that are in little suspended pots and hang down, they don't require much care and they're really cute. Cute bunting is also cheap and instantly dresses up the room! To keep the baroque aesthetic, I really like botanical prints and framed butterfly collections, you can get fake butterflies if you're not comfortable with real ones.

lmao this desu. I'm 29, working, studying, living with parents and idgaf. I couldn't get a graduate job with my choice of degree (which I accept is completely on me; illustration: not even once) so I've switched to engineering to improve my chances. One thing I've learned from observing people I grew up with is that no one's truly as in control of their own destiny as self-help culture/successful people make life out to be. It's important to stay determined and make good choices, but beating yourself up is counterproductive when being in the right place at the right time is such a huge component of how things pan out. I was completely shit upon for the first 25 years of life and I blamed myself, but I didn't give up and eventually things turned around for the better very suddenly.
