My Own Wonderland!

Someone recently said to me that you live only once, but you sleep every night. How true! My bedroom is the most private, intimate space I can create for myself right now. So it was that I started with an unsightly hole in the wall, a discolored blue bed left by the owner, and bare walls.

The less you have to work with, the better you can see an idea in your head. Material clutter hampers creativity. So I got to work. I got the bed removed and got more space in return. I got two thick mattresses kept on the floor, and that’s my bed. The windows got draped in blue and two chairs from the loft found new life with a kiss of white paint.

The old set of closets, brown and dull, stood there silently as every other corner of the house found its share of vibrant colors. So I dressed it up a little. The closet, I mean. It looks so alive now, and happy.

I sleep every night in this little wonderland of mine. Soon new colors will find their way into this room. Like fishes in green grass. Like red cows in a violet field. Like yellow birds in a Indigo sky. And I slip into dreams as colorful as the things around me. Not bad!

Bonjour,
Thank you so much for tospping by and your kind comments. I really love your what you said on your profile page - dressing depending on your mood and being inspired by your mother - I could have written that.
You've done a great job here on your bedroom. The flowers on the closet door are so pretty.
Will stop by soon.
Good evening to you!

It is so wonderful to see happy colors, so vibrant and so sunny. :-). Before you know it, every room in your house will have its own character. You should, probablly, know that house protects the dreamer.:-) Wishing you wonderful weekend. We have only two Winter weekends left! The Spring is almost here :-)))

How fun! I love what you did to the closet doors. I've gotten into a kick lately where I don't want any bright colors in my bedroom - so it's kind of like a serene haven. So far it's working!

Love the stencils (or paint) that you did with the closet! You're so creative!

Agree with you to remove clutter from one's life to let creativity flow through freely. =)
