My Private Sancuatry

I finally went ahead and loaned a camera from my suitemate to take pictures of my room.
I will start with a disclaimer saying that my photographic skills are definitely in need of improvement but I think I did my best to capture the essence of what I had said before.
And also, the pictures are not as rich or as warm as the room feels...to me. Many people have said they like it and I love it.

1. I had two yards of ankara fabric that I tacked to my walls. This served as a back drop for all the colours in my room. Over the years I had amassed alot in shades of blue. I was ecstatic to discover that my comforter was reversible (as the most used side had faded and dulled) and the reverse was a rich and deep blue that matched my curtain (which by the way is half of an incomplete pair...my aunt could not find the other one...it worked out though; got the smaller room)



I took apart a calendar with some lovely pics of the island of greece and framed them using painter's tape. Funny enough, the tape is blue in colour. Took me an evening alternating between the wall and an indian movie
The way it looks from the door. God, why can't I take better pics


I always wear socks indoors. My feet are always cold. And my nose and hands.


I raised the bed (u can't see how) and store my suitcases underneath. I pulled the covers all the way to the ground and the bed anchors one side of the wall.
The carpet is an area rug from Ikea that actually, because of the size of the room covers most of the center and softens the blues.

All the HUes of blue really make your room a sanctuary. A place of refuge from the maddening crowd out in the world. A place where DREAMS are made when you go Z-z-z-z-z-z-z.

See me trying to make poetry? How you dey jare, my sister? Nice touch.

A person's room is usually a reflection of their mind state. Yours shows an organised, creative mind.
