That's because I have tons of stuff to study for my last exam, and the little spare time I had, I used it to go out with my friends. I'm so tired of french macro-syntax T_T!
So, these days I've been thinking a lot about my new room: I'm going to move house in a month or so and I'm looking forward to it, since my new bedroom is like twice the width of my current one. I'm going to buy a new larger wardrobe, a new larger bookcase for my books and another one for my mangas, a case for my action figures and coldcasts, a larger desk, a dressing table, and finally I'll be able to put my piano into my bedroom and play ALL the Tori Amos' songs!
My problem is, I wanted to paint my bedroom walls red&black, but my parents wouldn't let me. Apparently black paint is hard to pull off. The effect I meant to get was this one:
But then I realized that in that picture only the furniture is black, but the walls are pink.
So I figured that I could paint my walls in a very hot pink, like this:
And then fill it up with black accessories.
I saw something very similar last week in a shop; it was a black birdcage with floral decorations all over it. Very pretty. It can be hung from the ceiling, and with the candles lighted the effect is very romantic :).
And then, of course, the piano. Nothing says "goth" as a girl dressed in black lace playing an eerie tune on the piano.
(I'm going to take such amazing pictures :D)
I'm also going to hang my Victoria Frances puzzles on the walls: I have these two :)
I also have some of this plastic little tablecloths:
Which I turned into frames for pictures that I like; I just print them in a regular A4 sheet and then stick them on the "frame" with some glue pads.
I have four of them :).
I'm not sure about the bed, though. I think I'm going to buy a queen size, but a king size would be better for when my boyfriend stays at my house, like when my parents are on vacation. But on the other hand next year we're going to leave and move to London together, and when we come home I don't really think I'm going to live with my parents again. I don't know. Aside from the size, I'd like something like this:
But I guess I'll just have to settle for something more sober (and affordable... the second one is 20,500 $!).
I'd meant to buy this canopy but it is sold out :( it had a lovely spiderweb pattern.
As regards my dressing table, I'd like to have something like this:
But without the mirror because I already have the perfect mirror <3 just the table. I don't think I can find a black one in, say, Ikea :°D I'm probably going to buy one and paint it later.
Something like this would be perfect. And very expensive: I'll definitely keep it when I'll go live with my boyfriend.
And finally, the lamp! I'm looking for something along the lines of...
I can tell you, my bedroom is going to be so awesome when I'm done decorating it <3.
I'd always thought I had no sense for decoration, because I really wasn't interested in furniture and lamps and all that kind of stuff, but that was until I realized I could decorate a room my way, and by my way I mean the gothic one.
Of course, I had to fight with my pink side that was making fit because she wanted to live in a place like this:
But I said "no, no, no". I made a compromise with her: the walls are going to be pink, all the rest is going to be gothic. Also, pink or white accessories won't look that bad in a pink bedroom, so everyone wins and everyone's happy <3.
How are your bedrooms? Do you take pleasure in decorating them, or you just keep the "goth" to yourself? :)
