When my husband and I began searching for apartments last year we knew one thing: must. not. live. in. a. loft. Tired of trying to make our industrial loft into a home (an entirely new post, but my thoughts can be summed up in the hilarious Unhappy Hipsters blog), we were ready for a vintage Chicago apartment with all of the “perks”: wonky heat, uneven floors and shoebox-size bedrooms. A year later, and we’ve yet to actually do any serious work in those tiny bedrooms and it’s time to get started. My thoughts are all over the place execution-wise, evidenced by the photos that are inspiring me to get it together.
I love the striped floor and girly headboard. The floors in our bedroom were painted brown by previous tenants. Since the room is so small, it’s a good candidate for a first try at floor painting.
In love with these pillows, the unfussy bedding and the little sconces above the bed.
This is a much bigger bedroom than I could ever hope for but the colors are calling me. Not quite sure how I feel about the headboard. Is it leather?
The oversized headboard just might work in our space but the bench at the foot of the bed is a no-go. Our queen size bed fits into a tiny nook with no space at the foot of the bed for anything. Finally, the lace coverlet is completely impractical. Still, I’m loving the overall design of this cheerful room.
Which one is your favorite?
