When I moved from London back in with my parents one of the things that hit me hard was losing my beautiful room. I had the most perfect space and shelving in my house and after years of sleeping in rooms that were really small or not decorated to my taste, my room finally became somewhere I wanted to be. It was literally perfect: the storage, the shelves, the room dimensions, the light the windows let in, and most of all you could walk in and you would instantly know it belonged to me. So yes, I missed my room lots and my room back at my parents just didn't reflect me at all, therefore I made it my mission to decorate it similarly to my room prior, making it somewhere I would want to spend my time in again. I think it is very important to have a room you wish to be in, having your own space is something to saviour. I know when I have been at work or out all day I want to come home and have some time to myself. Equally, whenever I am upset or stressed I like to be alone and surrounded by things of comfort and familiarity. My room here still isn't perfect, there is one side that really needs sorting out, furniture needs changing and things need a bit of an uplift and sorting out (I practically have two rooms in one), but since I don't plan on staying here for much longer there's no point in investing too much into it. I have, though, given it a new lease of life with making everything feel mine again; and I am surrounded by all my memories and objects from my old bedroom in London that make me smile each time I see them. I thought I would show you some photographs of my favourite things in my room. There is one thing missing, though. You may have noticed in my old bedroom, through Instagram pics, that my room usually consists of lots of bunting. This is something I have decided not to put up here and something that I plan to keep for my new room, wherever and whenever that may be. Bunting was the crest of my London bedroom, and I want to keep it for when I eventually move back. Something to look forward to, you could say.
I love seeing peoples rooms so please do share links if you've done a similar post.
