from my room

I woke up this morning and looked around my room. I knew something there was different about it, but I couldn't put my finger on it. And then I realized, oh wait, the piles of clothes are gone, cleaned up the day before. Yes, that's how bad it was. I should really get a grip on my messy nature.

No long rambling thoughts today, no insightful analogies on life or my roller-coaster emotions; just some shots from my room (because if it's clean, it should be documented). My decorating style is a bit of an eclectic mishmash -- part modern, part vintage, part southwestern, part kitschy. Most of the pieces in my room I've either found in our basement, thrifted, or repurposed. I'm satisfied with it at the moment, though; it screams Carlotta, and I feel at home each time I walk in. It's my haven, my own little corner of the world.

Also, I would like to say that it's getting down to thirty one degrees (fahrenheit) tonight and the warmth of the heater greeted me when I walked into the house tonight. Fall has officially arrived in Oklahoma.

  2. I really, really love the look of your room, Carlotta. It just seems so peaceful and interesting! Definitely some inspiration to keep in mind when I finally get around to redecorating my own bedroom. :)

  7. I love the feathers and hearts. You and me? we're on the same boat. My room doesn't deserve to be lived in with it's current state.

  8. your room is lovely! my sister and I share a room, so I don't necessarily have "my own little haven." but I'm not complaining, because I love having a good laugh with her before falling asleep. (:

  9. I sometimes wish I had a wood floor. I don’t know what it is about wooden floors, but they’re so wonderful. Your Frank Sinatra photo is so fab. :) I love his music.

  16. Mishmashed rooms are always the best. A room needs to be "you". Looks like a lovely space! I love the combination!

  22. Carlotta, I love your mixed decorating style. I don't really care for rooms that are completely modern, or completely vintage--my style is a combination of vintage/ pottery barn modernish/adorable.
    Oh, and I love the picture of your shoes lined up in a row--so cute :)

  24. pillow is cute. I must admit I could not sleep beside a cow's head. not only would I not be able to, but nor would I have any appeal to that. just my opinion.;) I do like the picture of your grandmother :)
