Nesting as Procrastination

I will be done with the semester in less than two weeks (!!) and I have lots of work to do. I wish with all my might that I could tell you I’ve been working hard like the perfect student you all want me to be, but instead I have been sitting in bed dreaming about ways to  zhuzh up my room.  I have furniture– bed/desk/bookshelf/nightstand/lamps– so I’m not living in an empty room. When we moved in I intentionally kept my room pretty blah, but now we’ve lived here for four months and I have a sense of what the space feels like and how I want to use it. Here are my ideas- suggestions and recommendations welcome!

Bookshelf 

Mostly I just want a place to display the typewriter I got for Christmas last year, but my current bookshelf isn’t deep enough. Also, I don’t have all my books in NYC yet, so I don’t need a huge bookcase for my whole collection. I like the look of that blue dresser with the prints over it, so I thought I would recreate that with a bookshelf!

Miscellany

These are just various things I’ve seen around the internet that I’ve taken a liking to. My love affair with gold has surprised me this fall– it makes an appearance in almost everything I pin to my Apartment Inspiration board. My crafting supplies are about to outgrow their space in my desk drawers, so they’ve got to find a new home. That ikea bar cart is a perfect size for a little craft corner (although to be completely honest I’m running out of corners!).

Wardrobe

Currently, I have under-bed storage, and all my clothes that don’t go on hangers (pants, workout clothes, socks, underwear, etc.) are in one drawer and it’s driving me nuts. I saw this Pax Hack on Domino a few weeks ago and was smitten. I’d like to keep all my makeup/jewelry/clothes that don’t go on hangers in here so I can just close the doors and be done. And put stuff I don’t need every day in the drawer (cleaning/laundry supplies).
