bedroom tour

Thursday, September 04, 2014

My bedroom always seems to be the last room I put together. I don't know why. I wouldn't even consider this 100% done, although I never consider any room "done". I enjoy constantly moving things around and changing it up often, as if you couldn't tell by hair color. Hah. Anyway, my bedroom is finally at a point that I'm pretty happy with, and any changes from here will probably be small ones. So without further ado, I present to you my bedroom (and a whole bunch of pictures of Klaus because there's no kicking that cutie out of bed!)
It's a fairly small room but it's easily the favorite room I've ever called "my bedroom". I have two large windows opposite my bed from which on a clear night I can see the moon perfectly while in bed. It's pretty incredible, and high up there on things I love most about this apartment.

    1. It's Jeff's telescope but it basically lives here since he has an even better one at his place.

      You should come visit, I'll let you look through it! :P

  3. Oh I just goshly love this. Dogs belong in bedrooms, for one thing. Adds a whole element of happy, in my opinion. (Pun intended.)

    I don't know how you knew to put a bowler hat on that racoon, but he looks like he was born wearing it. Such a rascally gentleman.

    Aaaaaand the map. Perfect encapsulation of a travel-loving heart.

    Ok I'll stop raving before I creep you out.

  6. I envy your period table. I've never seen any periodic table bigger than the size of a book.

    1. Yeah, it's definitely one of my favorite things ever!

  7. I love the stuffed raccoon with the little top hat! So cute. Does he have name? I don't have any taxidermy pieces (though I kind of want some), but if I did I think I'd have to give them names!

    1. Nope, but only because I've never been able to think of anything super awesome. Any suggestions?!

  8. Ahhh, Klaus is such a handsome woof!
    I love the raccoon - I have a duck who also wears a hat :)

    1. I'm not sure. It's just something cheap Jeff picked up at a garage sale. It's still really neat to look through.

  10. i especially like the periodic table above the bed.... wonder where i can find one like this :D

  11. Could your room be any sweeter. I love how crisp it is. As much as I try to deny it, I really am a morning person and waking up in a room like this would be a dream. The details are precious. I love the pennants. I only own 2 pennants but they are so sweet. In fact, I recently found a vintage pennant for my Boyfriend a "just because" gift. I suppose when I like something, I want everyone else to like it too. hah. Beautiful space.

  12. your room is so open and i love the theme. not to mention the look of your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  13. This space is incredible! I love everything about it, particularly the sciencey-school elements...the periodic table, the phrenology bust, the multiple globes and body parts. It's a total dream to me! I take so much from your home decor posts. You have the coooolest taste.

  14. So lovely! And I love your little pile of plugs. Also, I don't understand why my closet can't look so organized like that! I think I need some little bins.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha, I definitely need a better way to store my plugs.

      Those bins are seriously the best. (I think they might even be from WalMart, hah!) Perfect for storing undies, bras, scarves and misc.

  19. Ugh, I want your room! Lol. You have lots of awesome things, but it doesn't look cluttered at all. I'm especially loving your maps and periodic table, and going to be seriously considering having a pair of the hands jewelry holders for myself. :)

    I really want your telescope and dapper raccoon.

    1. Hahahaha. I didn't notice that. That's hilarious. It's actually just my wide angle lens distorting things.

  27. I love -love- all of your collections and nicknacks! I try to do the same but everything gets covered in dust so quickly! What's your cleaning routine like?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I was already so jealous of your living room because of your insanely large windows that basically brighten everything and now that I see your bedroom I can say that the brightness is all around the apartment. Of course your decorative skills are off the hook and Klaus is looking handsome! Love it.

  29. Looks pretty nice, love the corner with your TV set

  30. What a lovely room! I really like your entire room but I was excited to see the lamp in the corner of the last picture. I've looked at that on ModCloth and have contemplating getting it.

  31. I know you were more of a cat person before adopting Klaus (although I know you adore Crum/most animals) but the fact that when you were ready to adopt a dog you chose one who turned out to be some kind of bull breed mix is awesome! He is so handsome and if he were golden tan would look identical to my American pit named Saint! You're bringing so much positivity to the breed and adoption and I can't thank you enough for it!

    And your room is awesome! :) Would love to see a picture of all your different plugs for your next "collections" post!
