I usually get a piece of paper and draw out a detailed map of my room, complete with where all the windows and doors are, and then decide where everything goes, but you can also just wing it if you'd like.
I have a sari that I got from a lady in Fiji, hanging from my ceiling with thumbtacks, draping across my bed. This is one of my cutest, easiest decorating tips. You can get some old fabric at a Thrift Store, or even JoAnn Fabrics, and use that! Here I did the same thing for my Chinese night.
I have some of my t-shirt pillows that I made for myself propped up against the wall. You can get your own, custom made t-shirt pillows here.
My music corner! Complete with record player, and my record collection.
The cruisin, golden oldies, and guitar wall hangings I got for .25 each at a thrift store!
My Jim Morrison, Elvis, and Beatles Posters.
My book shelf is in the corner also.
It can be a good idea to make themes in different corners of your room, like I did here.
My INCREDIBLE record collection. All in alphabetical order of course :) >>>
On the left hand side is more pictures and souvenirs from places I've been. That is a re-occuring theme in my room. It kind of pulls the whole thing together.
So there you have it! You get a sneak peek at my room! And some exciting new ideas for your room! I may not be a professional, but not too bad...!
Peace Love and Decorating
