My Happy Place






I am so excited to finally show you my room. Plus I loved being able to have Lily in the photos too! She was so fun to take photos with, considering she literally loves the camera! It's been on my list for a long time but I have so many blogging notes laying all over my room it must have gotten lost in the high stack of papers. I love being able to see how and where people live and enjoy their space. Seeing the way one decorates sparks so many ideas for myself and my own room/space.

Another reason I have been putting off this post until now, is that I have been waiting and searching for just the right items that I felt like I still needed to complete my room. If you know me, you probably know I change my mind quite often and therefore my room décor is sort of new. Well that is if you call giving your bedroom a makeover since last summer, than yes it's new! Before I changed my bedroom décor my theme was Paris and soft purple colors for my bedspread. It was beautiful but of course I wanted a change and so I switched everything including the bedspread, pictures on the wall, color theme, decorative pillows, and even my floor rug! So now my room is beach themed!







I was a little nervous at first about redecorating my room because of how cheery and bright the colors are, but they are actually very soothing for me. I've always been one for earth tones and dark colors but it's been so nice to have more of a uplifting and happy feel. Every time I walk into my room I feel more energized and awake. Definitely makes me inspired for more spring/summer projects and fashion styles. Now that my room is beach themed I am so ready for summer.

My room is my haven. Its the place where I journal, and jot down blogging notes. It's the one area of my home that explains me. My room is a special place where I can let loose and be myself. Here I can regroup and reenergize myself after a long day at school, work, friends, etc. I love having a quiet little corner where I can relax and unwind. Nothing sounds better than laying on my bed with a blanket over me and Lily, while sipping on my coffee and pouring my thoughts out on a plain empty white sheet of paper. You could say my room is my happy place.

I spend a lot of time in my room and its honestly the one of the few areas of my life that is well organized and clean. I have to laugh because I literally cannot enjoy my room, when it is messy. It's one of the many traits I've taken over by my mom. Growing up my mom has always taught me to pick up my things and how to keep a clean room. When I was younger, mess and piles of homework laying all over my floor and bed never use to bother me. It's weird how I've changed over the years. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm so thankful that my mom has instilled in me organization, and cleanliness. Know I appreciate it so much. So, yes mom I have to thank you for being a neat freak!

  7. I love how your room looks, and I love the beach theme! I am sort of the opposite of you in that I spend basically no time in my room except for sleeping. I spend most of the time in my living room...

  19. Your room looks SO pretty and I adore the soft colors and amazing light that comes in. All the cute signs you have everywhere are super sweet as well, and I adooore your bed spread! It's so colorful! I'm currently re-doing my bedroom, but am still in the planning phase. I've got a color scheme worked out, and am now on the look-out for all the piece I still need to complete my dream room! :-) xo
