My room

I've got my own room. I wanted so for years, so I am extremely happy. When I lived with my parents I got my own room when I was fifteen, and then I moved together with DH when I was 18. And when we moved in our house almost 20 years ago, I was the only one who didn't get my own room. So when son moved September last year, I wanted his room. On 1 March this year I was lucky to get a new part time job at my company, and then I thought it was time to renovate it:
Pillows with vintage books.

We kept son's wall which I painted for him several years ago. The walls were painted white and the floor was sandpapered. Here I sit in front of the window and draw, paint and play with pearls:
I have inherited the desk from my mother in law, it is almost new. The bookshelf is from Ikea.

The Eiffel tower lamp is a birthday gift, the candle holder in the window is made by my beloved grandpa, and I am working on some pearl projects:

A little boy I once knew:

In the attic I have one of son's room dividers with boxes from Ikea. The boxes contain my fabric (small and large pieces) and lots of yarn and buttons:
Op top of it is my old record player and at the left I have a few records to play while I work on my projects.

Besides the records are four glasses with lots of buttons, size sorted:

Opposite the desk is son's old desk, which is now my sewing table. The beautiful purple goldsmith-dragon made of hand painted silk is a birthday gift from my brother:

My old sewing machine, which my dad thrifted and repaired for me:
Real seventies orange. And there is a pile of things I have to sew/repair.

My mother in law's crystal, which I don't know what to do with, so now it decorates my room:

But what do I have in my bookshelf, you ask? Here is a shelf with all my Marilyn Monroe books:
And a vintage watch and some vintage silver thimbles.

Here are various books on fifties style, a pair of clear lucite shoes from the fifties, two vintage pocket watches, my silhuet and my snowglobe from Paris:

At the left I have various movie star books and at the right I have books on tarot and other occult things:

My small collection of vintage cameras, the silver one at the right is a money box son gave me:

Let's end by looking closely at son's wall which he designed six years ago, and I painted for him:
He was very nervous if we would paint it over, but since I like the monochrome look too, I wanted to keep it.

So here I sit and work on creative projects while I listen to vintage records every Wednesday, and I LOVE it! :)

  1. The room looks fabulous! And what a darling view from the window, a real source of inspiration I would guess. I wish you a darling weekend!

    1. Thank you, Annie, it is truly a dream come true. :)

  2. What awesome, treasure and inspiration filled room of your own! The contents of your bookshelves alone have me swooning up a storm. I'm very happy for you, dear Sanne, and hope that you enjoy many fabulously happy years to come in your special new corner of the house.

    1. Thank you so much, Jessica. I cannot help decorating and making it cosy with vintage things, and I really like that I now have all my books at hand, so I can just grab one and flip through it when I feel like it. :)
