Come into my lair

I was going to call it my boudoir, but this seems much more accurate. It’s dimly lit, and someone or something might jump out at you from a closed door.

This also now appears to be the primary residence of my teeny old kitty, Drucilla. She blends right into the bed and I have to say, it’s super adorable (to me). She’s the reason there’s a dining room chair to the right of the bed; she struggles to get up there without it.


Note the number of patterns between the bedding, headboard and curtains? The headboard fabric is temporary; my old bedroom colour scheme was based around a vintage kimono and the headboard was a burgundy velvet no longer feels right.

A big black, blank canvas. I wish I could paint but for now, it fills the space. The dresser was also painted to coordinate with my kimono and now needs a colour change. Who wants to paint it for me?

A few changes to come…

  • window film to replace the IKEA panel curtains that came with the house
  • new headboard fabric –
  • a rug, perhaps?
  • more art
  • repainting the dresser
