I Added a Chair (I need to work on these titles)

You may have noticed that I've been focusing mostly on home decor lately. I have done a few crafty things lately. I knitted a project I'm pretty excited to show you, but I think I have the itch to make my bedroom pretty because I feel trapped in it. I spend most of my time in it, working on my college work. There are parts of it that look really good, and then parts of it that don't. For instance, somehow none of the closet doors in this house are fully functional. So, in the master bedroom, I get a nice view of my clothes nearly constantly. I hate looking at my clothes all day.

But that really has nothing to do with what I'm about to show you. My brain does tangents well.

I went to IKEA and bought a chair. I'm hoping that I will sit in it occasionally. Chairs are functional like that.

The corner of the room it hangs out in how looks like this. It's sort of drab, but I think it has potential. It needs pops of yellow and a lamp and something on the wall.

So, I had a lot of fun playing with Photoshop and picking out accessories to go in my reading nook. I might actually end up with that lamp ($20 from IKEA), but everything else is an approximation. The pillow I'll most likely make myself. Same with the art. The ottoman I like, but it's too bright a yellow when it's not hanging out in fantasy land (I messed with the saturation in Photoshop) and it costs three times as much as the chair. Therefore, ottoman situation to be determined. The vases I like--also from IKEA, but who knows (I paid no attention to scale--they could be three inches tall for all I know). I think I want something more cylindrical. Plus, I believe I'm going to mount the TV on the wall, leaving more room for accessories.

 Woah, that yellow makes a serious difference! Drab gone!

  1. Oh, I love it all! You need to help me with my bathroom sometime. It is getting there, but still VERY boring.

  2. Very, VERY cute. Wish I had the 'knack' that you and Scatty seem to have :-(

    I've fallen into the black hole that is Etsy and saw this fabric that made me think of this post:

    Sadly for me it is not the colors that I am looking for to use in MY bedroom... Alas...

  4. Loving the yellow accessories. Some say yellow brings a sense of happiness and warmth to any room. Better head on over to IKEA to buy those.
