LIFESTYLE | A Room Tour in Pictures


Having a peek at someone's room is a good way to get to know them. Obviously, it shows through the overall style of the room (and its state of messiness!), but also from the little things - the candle they're burning (well, for bloggers at least because who else burns candles in their room? haha), the way they arrange and store their clothes, or the little trinkets they keep on their shelves. This is why I've decided to do a sort of room tour, but only showing you bits and pieces instead of wide shots. My dad repainted and redecorated my room last summer, and I finally got rid of the blue walls I'd had for the past ten years to go for a more neutral colour. Funnily enough I went for a pale, greyish lilac on the walls, which is pretty much the colour scheme of my blog! Changing your room can really make a difference in how well you feel in it, trust me - a makeover is always a good idea.
The only thing that bugs me is that I have so much stuff that I'm struggling to find storage tricks now. My bookshelves are completely packed full of books and I have to put new ones randomly in every bit of space I can find now. But I wanted to show you my favourite part of it, the old books corner - I love collecting books from centuries past! I got the little squirrel stuffed toy in a shop in Hyde Park, London, and the curious bottle of Bath water in... well, Bath haha. Also, from these photos you can learn two things: 1. that I really like Jane Austen and 2. that I am also a huge Harry Potter fan. By the way, if you'd like me to do a Harry Potter merchandise collection, do let me know because that would be fun!

What is the colour scheme of your room? What are the bits that you like the most about it?

  5. I like being nosy, well I am sure most of us do:) We never have enough space in our rooms, so when you think that, it is time to get rid of some bits or put them away. I like the idea of old book corner, it adds personality to your room. x
