my room tour // part 1




ahhhhhh hello! Isn't this so exciting!? Well, it is to me! Because I have just moved I have been able to re-design my room and just make it fabulous! I have been planning this for a long time, considering I actually bought Ikea stuff in two other countries for it, since (very tragically) there is no Ikea in New Zealand. And I just love Ikea. I bought my trestles home from France and those shelf brackets to match, and a few other bits and bobs I'm sure I will explain in the next photos! I think it has turned out better than I imagined, and also a wee bit pinker than I imagined tehe but I love it!

This is only part one of the tour since I don't actually have a bed frame yet so I am sleeping on a mattress on the floor. And I also have a few DIY things to finish it all off. But my desk is my first priority because I knew it would just be GORGEOUS when I was done. On with the tour!!


So... This is my desk ^^
As I said, I got beech trestles from Ikea, which I love love love. For the top I just used a new door! I kinda like how its white on top and wood on the edges! Also in Ikea I got shelf brackets to match the trestles, and so that I could hang a pretty garland on them.

In the crate on the left I keep all my prettiest Kikki.K stationary and pencil cases. The crate is from a local cafe but I'm sure if you liked it you could make one or find one similar!

On my desk is my mint geo bowl of washi tape, a mint ceramic pen pot with all my fine liners in, and my cities calendar from rifle paper co.


This is what I hang on my garland (left to right) - warning: there is a LOT of Kikki.K!

Here I have my now rather large pile of magazines. I just love them. I think I have 2 random frankie issues - 28 and 31, then from 48 all the way to the current issue, 57. They are the best. Then I have yen magazines from issue 54 to 65, but I haven't got the latest yen yet :(. I also have 2 peppermint mags, issues 19 & 20. I keep a tiny Kikki.K calendar sat on top that is just so cute.


Then here is another angle (I feel like I'm boring you now!)
I have my pretty little money tree which i think is so cute, and I made a little fabric slip thing for it to make it pretty. Then I have my lovely new books - Rookie yearbooks 1 & 2, Find & Keep by Beci Orpin and the ABM photo idea book. Then there are my extra curricular mags - if you live in NZ have a peek! They are really cool! Then my beloved little precious thing - my instax mini agh so cute!


This is what is on my shelf above my desk. My two lovely polaroids which unfortunately I have not got film for yet, its just so expensive! Then I also have my ikea box which came in a set of three with my two pen pots on my desk. In there  I keep all my paints including my water-colours.


So this is my lovely blogging station! I love just looking up at the prettiness and all the inspiring things.


This is the pic I posted on instagram when I was first organising! Its so pretty and pink.

Anyway, I hope you liked the first room tour, and you are inspired to create your own lovely space! I just love my desk, its so me!

see you next time, have a lovely day.
