So… finally the promised pictures of my redecorated room!  I’ll give a bit of explanation of what I did first.  In my room, I have one wall that’s completely filled with yellow closets (you can see it at the next picture).  My parents painted them this color when we moved here 15 years ago, so you can understand I was really sick of the color by now.  But, it would be too much work to repaint all of them, expecially since I only spend 2 days a week here, and I don’t know how long I still will be living here.  So, I decided to embrace the yellow by getting rid of the color chaos in my room and making yellow the accent color.  I painted one wall grey and kept everything else white.

My sheets and the black cushion are Ikea.  The white bear was a christmas present when I was 3 or 4 I think. (It was bigger than me back then!)  I got rid of all my other teddybears, but I just couldn’t leave this one.

My workspace.  Very empty since I haven’t been here for 3 weeks and I mostly work in Leuven!  The grey lamp used to be red, I’ve had it since I was six, so the color wasn’t what it used to be.  I used some left over spraypaint from my models to make it dark grey.  The desk is ikea, I bought it for my room in Leuven, but then I had to move out and I couldn’t use it anymore in my new room, so I put it here.

My parents had the chair on the right for more than 20 years I think, but somehow it ended up on the attic.  I rescued it and added some cushions (otherwise it’s far from comfy!). 

On the left you see my jewelry box, a gift from my aunt when I was twelve I think.  The little piano was a gift from my grandmother, it’s a vintage toy and she bought it for me because I play the piano.  You can actually play it!  The globe was a gift from my parents when I was little, it doubles as a lamp which is nice.

Books and magazines on my nightstand.  On the left you see Lula magazine, a birthday gift from my best friends, Influence by the Olsen sisters, and a photography book called ‘Kind Regards’ which I got from a friend.  On the right you see ‘AIT’.  It’s a german architectural magazine , I’m not really a fan (my german skills are rather limited) but I got it for free at Interieur 2010, and I adore the cover.  Underneath is an architectural book called ‘Minimalism: architecute interior design’ which I got from my parents for christmas.  I’ve had the lamp on the right since I was a baby, but it used to be pink.  Thanks to spraypaint it now matches the rest of my room!

This shelve is the only really new element in my room.  You see pictures of my best friends, a picture of my piano, a polaroid print by Lieve Blancquaert on the right, and on the left a picture of Flodder, my grandparents’ dog.

All cushions are Ikea, except for the yellow one, I don’t know where I got that one.  This is still a bit of an empty corner, but I don’t know yet what I want to do with it.  We’ll see!

My magnetic board: postcards from friends, memories from great parties, Danny Roberts’ Girls in Glasses, Erlend from the Whitest Boy Alive and the Miss Dior Chérie ad.  The little glass butterflies were found in Austria many years ago.

I hoped you liked this little tour and that it was worth the wait  since I promised these pictures september 2009, oops!

    Oh Hannelore, mooie kamer!! slim hoe dat ge geel as accentkleur hebt gekozen en de rest redelijk neutraal hebt gehouden. Ben wel benieuwd hoe je kamer er dan ervoor uitzag.
