A Nervous Girl’s Guide to… My Bedroom (Pics Included)

Welcome to the messy, disorganised, sometimes shocking clutter-pit that is my bedroom. I like to think of it as a physical representation of my mind… or something like that.

Clothes Corner: I think everyone has one of these in their bedroom. For some people it’s a single stray sock. For me it appears to be half my wardrobe.

Unmade Bed (Plus Mario Pyjamas): Says it all really. I’ve never understood why people make their beds; we’re just going to mess it up again when we climb back in that night, right?

A Writer’s Desk: I say writer’s desk because that makes it seem like this chaos is to aid some sort of creative process, when actually I spend about 10% of my time writing, and the other 90% watching Netflix and checking my email.

Lord of the Rings Wall: Just one of them. Even though I’m almost 23, I still have a bedroom filled with posters, most of them Tolkien related. That’s the problem with still living in your childhood bedroom as an adult.

Books, books, books: I have lots of books. I don’t throw any out, even my Mr. Mens, resulting in overflow onto the floor.

Fantasy Art: As well as Middle-Earth, the walls are also covered with fantasy art from artists such as Josephine Wall and Arthur Rackham.

What’s your bedroom like? How does it differ from your childhood bedroom?

  1. Your room looks coy and creative 🙂 A girl’s private space is her sanctuary in the world. I love being at home, where I can access the world more intimately, in a way, by being on my own quiet terms with a sacred space of belonging. Thumbs up to the Lord of the Rings posters, by the way. Those were a central feature of my childhood bedroom (I was 11 years old when the first movie came out in 2001 and those movies had a hand in saving my life). Now I share a room with my partner in the house we live in together, so I don’t have my “own” room per say, but surprisingly I don’t necessarily miss it. I feel comfortable enough in the life we have together to not need a room all to my own most of the time, and when I do he can be away at work! Now our space is decorated with more real-life themes than when we were kids, but there’s a sparkle of magic still.

    1. Aha, thank you! I’m glad you like my room. One day I will hopefully grow up and have more sensible decorations; but I hope not to lose that ‘sparkle of magic’. Hopefully my future partner will be understanding on my Lord of the Rings obsessions XD
