So I finally arranged my bedroom in a way that definitely works for me. I still need to paint the walls because they're an ucky white, but I think that I can probably convince my landlord to pay for the paint here sometime soon. Anyway. For anyone who cares, my room has been a mess and utterly unusable because of its ugly factor for the last month and a half. In fact, I have just been sleeping in the living room because the living room was much more beautiful, and I can only sleep peacefully in beautiful places. I couldn't think of anything to do with my bedroom. First of all, I only have three usable walls in my room. First, there is an entrance to my room from the kitchen. Then, the bathroom is connected to my room as well. Then, The Boy's room is connected to my room. So I have three doors leading into my room (not counting closet), leaving me with only one full wall and two part-walls to work with.
I didn't know how to arrange all my furniture, since I didn't want there to be a bed next to a night stand next to a dresser next to a bookshelf next to a desk. It all seemed too... ugly and imbalanced. Finally, inspiration struck during one of my classes this week, and I put my bed in the middle of the room and divided the room into "bedroom half" and "study half."
So on one side of my bed, I have my night stand and my dresser. On the other side of my bed, I have my bookshelf and desk. So here are pictures. I still need to do some arranging of the room (like hanging pictures), but this should give you a general idea.
(And please forgive the lopsidedness of the covers. Usually I make my bed more symmetrically.)
