Snapshots: My room

Readers, we all have our safe places, do we not? Somewhere where we can retreat when the days get long. For me, that would have to be my room. I'm a little nervous to be leaving this safe place of mine when I go off to college, so I thought I'd snap some pictures and share the place that I call home. Hopefully this will also spark some inspiration for decorating my dorm room, which I'm still a little bit nervous about. (Especially since I can't exactly fly big posters across the ocean, now can I?) 
Anyway, here we go:


Here you can see my bookshelf, an original piece by Jayne of The Dark Victorian, and my closet door.

This is a better shot of my bed. I'm not the only Goth who has little stuffed animals, am I? Haha.Here's a better view of the pirate flag I have covering my window.My desk. It looks more hectic in this shot than it actually is. At least I know where everything is, no? Oh, and you can see the bulletin board I featured in a previous post.

My room has a long chest of drawers along one wall (most of them are filled with old school papers, more books, etc.) but you can see two of my deer skulls, my lineage vest, my type writer, and an Edward Gorey poster in this shot.

Here's a closeup on the top of my bookshelf. Those ornaments on it came from a lot of different places. The candelabra and spider-shaped candle holder came from Michael's. The gray angel candle holder and the little cauldron came from a thrift store. The little octopus sculpture was made for me by a friend at my high school. The black skull was purchased at Otakon 2010 and the silver one was from Necromance.




The back of my closet has a poster from the Mutter Museum on it (not the one I had intended to buy, but I actually prefer this one, haha) and right next to it is a chart of the kings and queens of England.

Here is my wall of photography and art. Most of it was gathered from DeviantART back when they were having one of their print sales which are, by the way, great ways to support your favorite artists and get some excellent pieces for your home.

A closeup of my desk, where I'm blogging from right now.

What are your favorite feature's from your room, friends? How have you made it fit with your spooky style?

  1. Since I've gone away to college, my sister's taken over our room, so it's a bunch of dried flowers, Tibetan prayer flags, and paintings. But I've managed to put my mark on the room by keeping my bookshelf well-stocked, as well as having no closet door, letting my wardrobe visibly overwhelm it.
