Much of my room is meant to be practical; I primarily furnished my apartment with Ikea articles, and I tried to use things I already had to decorate with, like all of my sweaters and cardigans to bring a pop of color on an otherwise bland dresser top. It was also a way for me to store all of the clothes that couldn't fit in the dresser.
It's still strange to have my own room that I get to make all the decisions regarding. My entire college career, I shared a room with someone else, and though I had my own room growing up, my parents had the ultimate say in the decorating. Hopefully, I'll soon finish decorating soon!
