I love decorating my place..and I too like a simple look with no clutter.. check out ikea (so cheap) but u have to assemble the items yourself.. my bed set is like this..but in white



Nice as well



I guess it all depends on how much u want to spend and how much time u have on your hands
And also turn on your tv, there are several home decorating shows.. my fav is trading spaces.. click here to see before and after pics (check out Doug/Genevieve/Laurie and Vern make over rooms...)

I love interior decorating too!! I'm hoping to re-decorate my room over the summer break..... I absolutely LOVE antiques, gold, gilded furniture, upholstered chairs, anything French apartment-like really ..... I just purchased some gorgeous wallpaper but I'm at a loss at how to apply it to the walls. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and neat freak so I want to do it properly . Can anybody help me out?? Please??

if you have a wallpaper store near you I suggest going there and having them tell you "exactly" how to, or somewhere like Lowe's or Home Depot in the wallpaper section. Let me know if you don't have any of those stores and I'll try to find a website for you

since you want a place you want to relax in..use nice cool colors..maybe colors that's reminiscent of the beach? I would avoid bright jarring colors. A nice light light yellow wall paint, mix with light blue touches- like light blue/white window shades, the shear-ish fabric kinds that flows- and mainly white w/ blue sheets for your bed. Iono just mainly stick with a few colors, i usually stick with three colors. and keep the furniture that has clean lines. Well that's what i picture in a room that i want to relax in at least..hope it helps a little

blah scanner is broke so i can't scan some pics from my design book!

my room is shabby chic...white walls,desk and bedspread with patterned curtains and cushions
i have an antique dressmakers dummy which i put pearls etc on and i have an old silver teapot filled with lipgloss
i have an antique dressing table which is my pride and joy and i love anique crystal perfume bottles
i bought a really great book called boudoir by hilary robertson that is all about decorating bedrooms...the book has 15 bedrooms in it as examples and they fall into three catagories: romantic, sexy and exotic
my favourite bedrooms in the book are the dangerous liasons bedroom (decorated with french antiques, fabrics etc) and the starlet bedroom (decorated in a glamourous 1940's style)
