Good day, lords and ladies.
I decided to do a post about our bedroom. I have agreed with my boyfriend, that I can decorate the bedroom as I wish, but I must keep my girly stuff away from the rest of the appartment. So far it has been a very good arrangement, and I think it's only fair that the rest of our home is a little bit less feminine.
But anyway, I have been working on the bedroom a little by little. I don't have endless amounts of money, so I can only purchase couple of things at time. I have also made some great finds at the fleamarket, and of course customized some things myself.
Here's a view from the door. The white dresser used to be my mother's when she was a little girl (it was bought when my mother started school and my uncle painted it white), so I think it's safe to say it's vintage already. It opens up to a work desk also, and usually I keep my laptop on it. This dresser is without doubt my dearest piece of furniture; I've had it in my room since I was 10 years old. ♥
The mirror is a flea market find. I would like to get it hanging from the wall some day. But as it doesn't bother me that much on the floor either, I've been lazy. x)
Here's a closeup. I like to keep one of my lolita dresses at a time on display. They are so pretty, so why wouldn't I? I also like to collect cards and pictures on the closet door.
Here's rest of the room. The side curtains with flowers are a great find from a fleamarket. They are in mint condition, cost only 3 euros in total, and they are made by Finlayson. To my foreign readers this doesn't say much, but I tell you; Finlayson is a high quality, and quite expensive Finnish home decor brand.
The pictures above my dresser. The one on the left is painted with watercolours by yours truly. I call it "La Cortile des Lapins" ("The Court of Bunnies") and it features several bunnies that I or my friends own or have owned. There's Pippuri (the black one), Lady Jane Grey (the grey one), Odessa (the toffee colored one), Spike (the spotted one) and Atsalea (the dark brown one). The dame on the right is Marie Antoinette.
My candle cups and the pretty key hole of the dresser.
The nightstand and the blush toys. The two ponies on the left are part of my My Little Pony collection. There are also my two bunnybearbags by Baby, the Stars Shine Bright, a few toys from my childhood and rest of them are presents from my friends. For some reason people tend to give my blush toys. (For my next birthday and Christmas I shall make an announcement that I wish to have no more blushies. :D)
The nightstand's drawer has yellow stripes in it! I find it rather lovely.
My jewelry boxes. From left to right and back to front: Essin maailma, vintage, gift from Mimi and self painted.
And a carousel music box I bought from Joensuu. It plays "My Only Sunshine".
This white wooden box is painted and decorated by my mother. She gave it to me as a house warming gift. ♥ I keep some of my jewelry making equipments in there.
Bed cover and decorative pillows. The pear shaped one doesn't really match with anything, but it is the only thing I have sewn that didn't go horribly wrong and therefore I'm really attached to it.
This painting hangs above the bed. It's also made by me, with watercolours. It's my favorite painting from all the paintings I've ever made, because I love unircorns. I also painted the frame white myself.
All in all I'm very pleased with the bedroom already. There are still few little things I'd like to change (e.g. to get new lamps and a new carpet). But even as it is, I really like this room. ^-^
Bonus pic: my My Little Pony collection. I keep them in the living room because there's no room for them in the bedroom. You can see closeup pictures of the Ponies here.
