Yay, I’ve finally got my room to a state where I feel like I can take proper photos of it and post it on the Internet! Well I say that, even though it’s very much still a work in progress, I’m pretty proud of how things are starting to look. You see, none of my living situations have ever been quite right, usually due to me having too much stuff and nowhere to put it. That’s still a bit of an issue (there’s a reason why I called this post ‘snippets of my room’) and I’m never going o be one of those minimalist types. I like my stuff on show, it tells a bit of a story, suits my personality to a t and if Pinterest says it’s okay, then I’m game. Everything has been collected from a mix of places and it’s the first time I’ve managed to see a true reflection of my tastes in my personal living space. Think a little bit of Midcentury mixed with primary colour pops, plus plenty of the letter ‘K’!
I was pretty lucky to get some vouchers from George earlier this year, it really helped me to find a few finishing touches (like even more cushions) and you can get an awful lot for your money. My Pinterest board may be filled with pricier bits and every so often I treat myself to the cheapest things from places like Oliver Bonas or House Of Hackney, but I’ll always be excited to find a gem somewhere for less. I’m also fond of picking up prints by independent illustrators (hello Ella Masters) as well as my favourite exhibition pieces from the likes of the V&A. I like the fact that my room is becoming a scrapbook of sorts, with the current climate it’s where we eat, work and socialise as well as sleep. It has to be several rooms in one really!
I’d love to know where you’re at room-wise and how you’ve attempted to make the most of a rented space!
