Decorating Help

Okay, so I'm on the home stretch of redecorating my bedroom, but I need a little help. First of all, for those of you that don't know, I have a small house, built in 1955, and the rooms are all tiny. We're okay with this, though, because we don't keep a lot of clutter or junk. So here are some pictures of what we have so far. I forgot to take a picture of the rug, but this is it (sorry, I couldn't size it down).
Also, some of these are crappy iPhone pictures, but you get the general idea. These pictures were taken before I got a lamp on that nightstand, but this is the base I bought (the shade wasn't on the website).
EDITED TO ADD: I found a picture of the lamp on the nightstand.

And the curtains are actually red. So one of my problems is that I need something for the left of this window, but I don't know what. What about a candle sconce? Would that look stupid with a lamp there?Then there's the issue of above the bed. Do I need something there? I thought about making it an accent wall, a pretty, warm orange, but I really don't feel like going through the trouble of painting it (moving everything, taking the curtains down, etc.). But it's an awkward space because the bed isn't centered on that wall, so putting something above it would mean it would have to be centered on the bed, and I guess that wouldn't be so bad. I don't know.
And this is the dresser. I think that's pretty much finished; I just wanted you to get a better feel for the room.So what do you think? I need ideas. I don't really want to do a large, framed picture above the bed or anything like that, but I could be persuaded otherwise. Let me know!! TIA!!

EDITED TO ADD: There's also the issue of this opposite wall. It's got a narrow walkway, so I'm afraid to hang anything there.


  1. Love what you have done so far. I think something centered over the bed would be good. What about a vinyl saying or a plaque? Also, I think if you put something about the bed you do not need anything to the left of the window.

    Can't wait to see the finished project!!

  2. Once the lamp is in place you probably won't need something to the left of the window. Ryan is right. You need something above the headboard. I can have a headshot of me blown up to 3'x4'.
    Also, you might want to start watering your plant on the dresser. (JK of course... it all look fantastic)

  3. your room looks great. what if you found a really pretty fabric to frame for the wall opposite your bed. just an idea.

  4. Rian, I was thinking about doing what you're talking about (plaque or vinyl) on that wall with the doors. I just need to find a good phrase.

    John...thanks. LOL

    Lyndy, what do you mean? My interest is piqued.


I love to hear from you!
