Regarding the post from the last thread about why these threads are called room threads and not home decor threads: there was never specifications about it having to be a bedroom, but bedrooms are most commonly posted because it's the easiest place to decorate. Lots of people, NEETs or not, can't have their own home, and sometimes when they do have their own home the bedroom is just the place they spend the most time in.

Besides, there's no need to be so insecure about liking cute things. Being an adult doesn't mean you aren't allowed to collect Sanrio merch. Being an adult means you can do what you want.

What's your dream room like? Be it a bedroom or a livingroom or a closet...whatever you like. Could you describe it?

I am moving into my own apartment in a few months and will be decorating for the first time. I have a feeling there will be a lot of pink, fluff and pastels.

Does anyone have any "traditional" farmhouse bedroom inspo? My bedroom is just large enough for a double bed, double wardrobe, and an ottoman. My furniture is light pine coloured and my walls are white. I want to display my Victorian photograph collection and a couple of lolita artwork. But I don't know how to go about it tastefully? I really don't want to add white accessories or anything shabby chic style.
>>
>>10100952
Good question anon! The trouble is I like gothic interiors & curio displays, minimalism, art deco and 80s modern, indoor jungles, and a dash of cute shit - I have no idea how to successfully combine all these styles in a home without it looking like one massive clusterfork.

Dita Von Teese's home was posted earlier, she managed to make her eclectic interior work, so maybe there's hope, I think it'll just take a lot of planning.

I think what you have sounds beautiful anon. I'm with you on the all-white shabby chic thing too - frankly I'm sick of it, and the accompanying heart chalkboard 'home sweet home' type stuff. Somewhat rustic and shabby can be cool, but I think it can all too easily fall into twee cliche.

Anyway anon, how about keeping things relatively simple not unlike in the attached collage, and say, adding your pictures in the Victorian staggered cluster style. I don't know if you have wooden floors, but a rug of some kind could look beautiful.

As the decor will be quite neutral you can pretty much go with whatever bedding, curtains etc take your fancy, from hints of gothic with curio displays, to understated or traditional type prints such as William Morris.

My dream has taken a long time to put into words, but I want a perwinkle&purple wonderland with a magic feeling that makes you want to peek out the window for elves and fairies. I want a room where I can watch my planted tank thrive and have a small shelf full of leafy plants that smell pleasant. I want it to be a soft, safe place where things grow quietly and steadily and where I can go when I need to rest. Purple mixed with dark woody colors, plants, and crystals are my inspirations for my dream room! Though I can’t have lilac walls like I want, I get to paint my walls white, and I plan to hand plants, my jellyfish baubles, and fantasy forest pictures so I feel like I’m transported away every time I open my door!
>>
>>10101435
I'm not so keen on the colour or fabric choices here but the general approach / principle might be helpful - i.e. choosing your colour and fabric choices and keeping it coherent, as well as thinking about any additional items such as wall clocks, mirrors etc. Also if you have room, I think tub chairs like in the pic look amazing in farmhouse rooms and add a bit of stylish luxury to the overall look.
>>

Thank you, anon. This is exactly what I was looking for. I want the bedroom to appear warm but sophisticated. I really like the idea of displaying the photographs in a clustered style. I don't have the space to fit any additional furniture into the room– I did really want a chair. I like the idea of incorporating a couple of small plants. I have an old lamp with a fancy marbled base that needs a new lampshade. I'm definitely going to see whether I can source a lampshade like the ones in the first image you shared!

TFW you don't have enough money to buy your own house and you're set to inherit one for sure and possibly two since your sibling is most likely going to disappear after their favorite parent dies. It's horrible, but I'm literally waiting for someone to die so I can have my own house and decorate it to my liking with out any restrictions

I get where you're coming from and I've definitely died a little inside when I've seen people paint up say, beautiful oak vintage furniture with a unique patina or slap some white chalk crackle paint over a Victorian antique. On the other hand, I don't think we should necessarily be too precious – I've seen some amazing transformations of furniture that was destined for landfill, or unappealing vintage furniture given a new lease of life. Not to mention painting furniture isn't a modern phenomenon, lot's of vintage or even antique furniture was lacquered or painted, as well as covered in thick layers of varnish. In general, I'd rather see furniture recycled and given a new lease of life, so they can be used and enjoyed again than chucked out.

I've also worked for charities where people donate furniture and a lot of the wooden items, particularly pine and low-mid quality furniture from the 30s, 40s, 60s and 70s just don't sell and after taking up space for months, are either recycled or given to a furniture project. Sometimes volunteers paint the furniture and suddenly it sells. I'd rather furniture like this find new homes after being 'upcycled' than end up just recycled for parts. Hell, some of it is perceived as so ugly, unfashionable and undesirable that we can't even give it away.

Pic related is cheap faux baroque style furniture painted black.

Also agree with giving furniture new life if it desperately needs some TLC and/or could do with a new look. On an unrelated note that gold trimmed white nightstand is giving me some SERIOUS deja vu, I swear I had that exact same nightstand when I was a kid. The more I look at it, the more I'm sure that's the same one. Had a matching dresser and everything, both used to belong to my aunt in the 80s I think. Very strange to see it now, even if it probably isn't the one I had actually owned.
>>
>>10105054
nayrt but I pretty much agree, saving stuff from landfill when it's useable is always a good plan. "Upcycling" only annoys me when it's something like a beautiful unused antique in great condition that you know some homeowner somewhere would find perfect for their 19th Century whatever or Art Deco house. I get that value is determined by the market and all that, but it breaks my heart if you've got a beautiful untouched original finish and just chalk paint over it without respect for the original craftsperson...different if it's a very standard, commonly available kind of thing from 40-50 years ago.

I’ll admit im new to this sort of stuff, so could anyone tell me what style of room(??) this is called. Or just the general concept of an additional level like this one?
I’ve looked and looked and haven’t had any success. Thanks~

I really like the vibe created by this gallery wall in pic related posted by someone last thread >>10037535. Anyone have similar photos or ideas of what keywords I could use to search for this aesthetic?

Also: auquaria-anons: I love the look of all the aquariums set up in the last couple of threads, but I've always heard they were pretty loud. How loud would you say yours were? Noticeably loud when the room is otherwise quiet or loud enough to be annoying when watching TV...?

I wanted to share Miss Kika's instagram. She is a digital illustrator married to a Disney animator. They just bought a house, which they have been working on/remodeling and making everything a pastel paradise <3 I love watching her IG stories. She just finished painting her studio and will be moving in all her toys. Check her out for (future) inspo!

all I think when i see a loft bed is how hard changing the sheets will be
>>
>>10109891
It's fine with fitted sheets and a duvet cover rather than top sheet, but definitely not for people who are into hospital corners.
>>
>>10109905
There are still people who use non fitted sheets in this day and age? Why would you needlessly torture yourself like that?
>>
>>10110286
Nayrt but fitted sheets sometimes move around a lot and can't be tightened like flat sheets. I also enjoy purchasing vintage floral sheets and it's easier to find nice flat sheets than fitted ones (which tend to be more worn or with busted corners). Also, even when I use fitted sheets I prefer to have a flat sheet tucked into hospital corners on top so my sheets stay put while I'm sleeping; that sounds like a pain and a half in a lofted bed.
