Love this room! Especially the bedspread.
Back in August I moved closer to work and school. I also moved to a much smaller room. It's been challenging and refreshing to build my new room. I started by being cut throat with my possessions before I moved. I literally gave away half of the things I owned. And it felt amazing. I'm in the process of going through my stuff again. Do I use it? Will I use it? What will I do if I get rid of it and need it someday? You'd be surprised how many things I've carried around that simply have no use. Now before you think I'm a cold hearted person, I do have a keepsake box that I store ticket stubs etc in. But the amount of DVDS and books I owned was disgusting. I think I've begun to master the small space. My new philosophy? If it doesn't fit in your room space, you don't need it.
+Consider using a mirror to open up your space
+Keep the clutter at bay! Find EVERYTHING a home. A hidden home. Use fancy boxes and other storage units to keep it clean
+Make your bed your focal piece. Let's be real it's going to take up a lot of space in a small room.
+Many suggest using lighter colors to open up your room. While, I haven't done this personally, I think dark colors are doable if you know what you're doing
+Use shelves to add height to the room and to store books, vases, frames, and other decorative pieces
+Add something green! No not the color, a plant, real or fake will liven up your space and bring some nature to your evironment
How do you make the most of your space?
PS-Happy birthday to my Mom!!
