fill-in-the-blank friday

1. My favorite room in my house is: I'm actually going to mention that I live in a college dormitory for the majority of the year, so I live in one room that functions as my bedroom, kitchen, living room, and studio.  And I love it.  I've always liked small-space living, actually.  In seventh grade we had to design our dream house for a tech. ed. class and mine was a very small octagonal house with a spiral staircase in the middle that didn't actually go anywhere.  I just wanted to have it there so I could sit at the top.

2. My current decor style is cozy, feminine nature-child but I wish it were more uncluttered.  That's the problem with having standard-issue college furniture-- it's not really tailored to the needs of a fashion design student (please excuse my terrible pun) and while it's good for storing notebooks and papers, things of that nature, there's really nowhere to store fabric and big weirdly shaped rulers.  Once I'm in my own place (aaaaaah!!!!) I'll have more flexible storage arrangements.

3. I wish I could redecorate my floor to make it something other than orange.  Whose brilliant idea was that?  Actually, the carpet in my room is orange, too.  I am cursed to always have orange floors, apparently. 

4. My dream house absolutely has to have lots of light, and maybe even a windowseat.  I do so love a good windowseat.

5. One house item I'm willing to splurge on is a nice bed and good bedding.  I'm a cranky girl if I don't sleep well, and we spend a third of our lives asleep, so I think it's worth it to spend that time in cute and comforting place.

6. A decor trend that I just don't "get" is severely chipping paint.  I loooove the cottage-y, shabby-chic look and I know that brand new coats of paint can seem artificial, but seeing bits of my house chipping away would leave me feeling uncomfortably vulnerable.  Not to mention the high chance that paint old enough to be chipping like that contains lead, endangering any chats or enfants in the area.  I' much prefer  a new matte-finish coat of paint, even if it doesn't look as genuinely cottage-y.

7. Cozy blankets, twinkle lights, battery-operated tea lights, and lots of mugs for tea are little touches that make my house feel like home.
