I thought my room in Virginia at 10x11 was about as small as a room could get but I was wrong! My new room in NYC is just 7.5x10 and I still insist on keeping my queen sized bed! However, I found a wonderful new roommate to apartment hunt with and we just couldn't resist the tall ceilings, big windows, and spacious living room and kitchen of this apartment. I thought rather than try to fight a losing battle against the size of my bedroom I might as well embrace the miniature aspects and make a cozy little sleeping den out of it.
The whole apartment came painted white which I actually like for increasing the effects of the natural light. I decided in my bedroom I wanted to increase the charm a little, though, with a accent wall of trellis stencil done in a very light grey. I basically wanted to copy the look here so I bought the Moroccan Stencil, spent a Saturday covering myself in paint and got this:
Another thing I love about my new room is the big window, which I cute-ified with gauzy white curtains tied back with big navy polkadot ribbons.
