My Dream Room

Filed Under:

I've always liked to design rooms; I don't know why, I just love arranging furniture and stuff like that. So I thought I'd draw out how I'd want my bedroom to look like given to chance to decorate with infinite supplies.

  1. Books (my favourite ones probably, for easy access) would go into these shelves that would be built into the wall right above my bed.

  2. A little reading light that can be twisted and moved around.

  3. More bookshelves; again, they're built into the walls (I'm starting to see a pattern here. :P )

  4. Drawers... built into the walls, for random stuff. (Probably more books. But those would be the ones that I don't want to read.)

  5. Ceiling lights, and again, they're in holes in the ceiling because I hate it when anything sticks out of walls awkwardly.

  6. This is my favourite part of the room: they're giant clock hands on the ceiling, so that when I wake up in the morning, all I have to do is stare up to know what time it is.

  7. Area rug, self-explanatory.

  8. Night table. Guess what? You can put books (the books I'm currently reading would go here) on top of it and store more junk inside too.

Now let's look at the other side of the room!

  1. Beanbag chairs

  2. A painting of some sort. I'd probably attempt to draw something and hang it right there.

  3. A table... you can store stuff in the bottom compartments! (Why yes, I do love storage, why do you ask?)

  4. Pod chair. 'Nuff said.

  5. Shelves for CDs

  6. Magnetic board for memos and notes, because I hate how pins make tiny holes in the papers you're trying to pin onto the cork boards.

For the colour scheme, I'm thinking really dark (either dark brown or black) walls, with pops of neon colours in the accessories (pillows, paintings, chairs, etc). Now that I've shared what my dream room looks like, how about yours? What does the room you've always wanted look like?

    I always liked to draw pictures/outline my room too. You're not alone.

    @ Justin: This is how I *want* my room to look, so I'd probably get a white one. :P

    See, all I desire in a room is a nice bed. I don't use my room for much besides sleeping and changing. My computer is in the family room.

    Your design looks lovely, though <3 I certainly wouldn't mind if my room looked like that! I really like the shelves and reading light over the bed.

    I love drawing rooms, and storage = love! :D Built in Shelves are totally cool :P

    When I was 8-12 I always wanted one of those huge, huge windowsills where my bed could go :P

    Do you play The Sims? I'd imagine that you'd enjoy it a lot, given your penchant for room designing. That's actually my least favorite part of the game - I find it really tedious - but I know people that get really into it, making very elaborate homes and such.

    Woot, I would like a book shelf on top of my bed so that I can pop on the books I want without getting down from my own bed :x (bwahaha, lazy - -") However, I wouldn't want a light to be on top of my head.. (it would be hot :x) As for all those built-in, I agree with you :D

    I wouldn't want to have my PC in my own bedroom because *ahems act old* it will affect our health...

    My own dream room? I only want a big space so that I can do my own activities there, for example dance :)

    p/s: Great drawings!

    Strange I thought I had posted a comment here before.

    I want bean bags in my living room! They always look so comfy and I think will help to make the room look more cozy :)

    I want pastel color for my walls, maybe light blue or pink.

Something to say?
