New thread, old one is RIP since days
Dropped my image because I am a fucking
the clutter of most of these lolita rooms makes me so uncomfortable thinking about all the dust that could accumulate
I know but I really hate that idea. Seems so lifehacky/pintresty and doesn't really look cute...do you really need ALL that makeup out in plain view? Maybe magnetize the makeup you use every day and put that up there with a little magnified mirror. Otherwise it's just like showing off your entire makeup collection.
I've usually seen it touted as a space-saving solution, ie- if you have a small vanity, having a magnetic board means you can see all your makeup vertically, instead of having to play tetris stacking them into a drawer each time you want to use one specific item.
Not currently at home, otherwise I'd send pics
Room is probably a bit shorter than this, there's only about 4 feet between my bed and my wardrobe
I'd like a lighter colored desk, nothing super dark since I want a lighter room. I just need to downsize this huge ass desk
>sorry for bad drawing I haven't done architecture or art in a while
No worries. Lemme look through my folders and see what I can hustle up
Exactly. I'm just picturing some poor disorganized girl getting really excited about this cool new organizational method and then realizing it didn't do anything to help her out at all except put all her Rimmel and Wet&Wild on display
Play around in roomstyler.com for layout options
And more gothic, but you could adapt this idea with pastels for a cute look.
I feel like bathrooms are really hard, because you're constrained by the fixtures and tiles that are already present (unless you own and want to sink $$$ into a full reno).
Dat feel when you will never have the claw-foot tub of your dreams because all your bathrooms are teeny tiny.
I used to live in a country where tubs were the golden standard and if you had a shower you were either poor or lived in a little cupboard under the stairs. Even the commiest of blocks had big tubs. Usually when you shower you stand in the tub and do it by hand.
Now I moved to N. Europe and every. single. apartment not only lacks tubs, oh no, they haven't got any shower cabins either. Literally the only thing that separates a shower from the rest of the bathroom is a shitty Sochi-tier curtain, which essentially means your whole bathroom gets flooded when you shower and if you don't like it, sux2bu. Some are lucky and get a wall, but most have to make do with a curtain.
Who uses a shower curtain when you have a freestanding tub?
wow anon, that must be weird. I am from the US and it's normal to have showers, but I think it's just as normal to have showers with tubs curtained or in the wall so 3 of the sides are wall and not curtain, like pic related. I like when the showerhead is detachable and has a place where it would normally be but you can use it for whatever. I agree it's a pain in the ass to rely on curtains, it seems pretty easy to install a shower 'cabin' as you called it, but maybe the houses are historic or something?
if there's a fancy tub there's usually a walk in shower somewhere else, most of the houses i've lived in are like that. there's another bathroom or bathrooms somewhere that has a shower. so the tub is just for baths.
Nah, nothing historic in Scandinavia. Most apartments were built in the 50s/70s. For comparison, I used to live in Southeastern Europe, and everyone here thinks we eat dirt and kill each other down there or something, but back home everything was either hundreds of years old or a commieblock and we still managed to install fucking tubs and good central heating, smh
Does anyone know where to buy ornate clothes racks like these? I've only been able to find plain metal ones or wooden ones.
not sure what kind of pigsty you live in but garbages need to be changed more than once a month, no matter what room they happen to be in or the current state of your lady parts. unless you happen to flush your qtips, cotton pads, razors, nail clippings, empty shampoo bottles, makeup wipes, kleenexes, and toilet paper rolls, and thus use the trash exclusively when on your period, there should really be no reason that condoms in the bathroom garbage would ever be an issue
hey does anyone know any tumblrs that post things like this, and general cutesy shit? not necessarily lolita specific, but lolita stuff is good too.
i basically just want blogs that post stupid cute pink decorative shit.
>qtips, cotton pads, razors, nail clippings, empty shampoo bottles, makeup wipes, kleenexes, and toilet paper rolls
none of these things are going to mold or smell
>empty shampoo bottles, toilet paper rolls
btw i just now found out that you can't cearch "lolita" on tumblr without unblocking "adult oriented content"
i clicked on unblock and literally was bombared with pink. jfc tumblr needs to chill with banning so many search terms.
well depending on what you've used those kleenex for...
plus i think the point it, you're gonna end up putting something in your trash that DOES smell, but its surrounded by things that don't so you still need to empty it.
plus if you're someone who keeps up well with cleaning your bathroom, you'll end up with paper towles covered in windex and sanitizing wipes and those can upset allergies, plus some people like to use scented candles and sweet smelling bath salts/melts and those cleaning products will overpower them.
That looks way too pretty and nice for a place where you shit. I wonder what the owner feels about take a huge dump in there. Probably awkward, especially when you make those loud disgusting noises when you poop you know?
@kellyeden on instagram, her whole apartment is amazing
Shh, I only use my bath garbage for tamps and q-tips full of eyeliner. It's quite small (11in) anyways so most of that stuff won't fit. I mostly only keep a bath trash so I don't have to do the walk of shame out to dispose my tamps.
Anything else that's unsanitary goes into the big trash can.
I feel you anon, moved from Eastern to Northern Europe and I didn't realise I'd have to lower my standards. How hard can it be to have proper central heating/actual tiles in a bathroom, ffs
Sage for offtopic
Yeah because all lolitas wear pink all the time, right?
This is a cool idea. I might try that.
All that manga and those cushions make me happy. Is it replica fabric or did they release cushions as well?
Having a mirror on a mirror is a bit pointless but it's cute enough I guess. It obviously won't look that good when it's in use, but idk what >>8680488 is so salty about.
I've never had one, but those beds with storage underneath look pretty neat, you could measure the space under your bed and look for suitable storage. Good for bed linen and off-season clothes,
Personally I have plenty of floor room, but I try to maximize it by putting unnecessary clutter in boxes.
For clothes, anything that can be folded, I fold well and stick on a vertical set of trays hanging in my closet. Like pic related but the full height of the closet.
Well. You can invest in a captain's bed. Or invest in some under the bed storage totes. I'm limited on my storage so I use underbed storage totes to store away a lot of stuff. Quite a few can fit depending on the size of your bed.
you could also get bed risers, if your bedding covers them because they're basically just plastic cones you put the bed feet on. you can get them at walmart i think, or just online.
>30~ days away from closing on a house
>completely fresh everything
What would you do if you could start from nothing, gulls? Is the best way to get cute big furniture to refurb old stuff? 3 br 2.5 bath but ATM I only have neutral ikea furniture and shitty particle board bookshelves (apartment life). I don't even own a kitchen table.
The laundry room currently has pink striped wallpaper that I love though.
i always suggest pinterest, because there's a billion and one tutorials on repainting old furniture. so you could get shit from goodwill and make it match.
there's also a lot of pages on building furniture from pallets
Honestly, if you can get good quality used things, repainting or just restaining is never a bad idea if you have the time.
A friend of my parents does this a lot.. he buys old furniture at auctions for cheap and refinishes it and makes a nice profit.
Does anyone mind sharing or linking their shoe storage? I like keeping my jfash and normal shoes together. I keep boots in my closet on the floor, but most of my shoes are platforms or heels so those over-door pocket things won't work. I'd get a shelf thing, but I'm afraid they'll be too short for my rhs and other bodyline shoes.
Craigslist is also great for this sort of thing if you take the time to repaint and stain to make everything match. I've gotten great deals on there before.
Sometimes you can even get decent furniture for free.
Like other anons have said, buy used furniture and select IKEA pieces and paint/stain it to fit my aesthetic if need be. Consider shopping on Cragislist, at yard sales, and especially at Estate sales and places like Habitat for Humanity.
My husband and I moved recently and I finally had space to make my own little crafting/lolita room. I'm really proud of how the organization turned out.
If it wasn't a rental I'd do away with the boring walls and gross carpet but otherwise I love it. I might get some large wall decals from taobao to at least liven up the walls a bit.
Thank you! I cut wooden plaques from Michaels in half, painted them white, added two L brackets to each and screwed them into the walls. It was a bit time consuming but it was an inexpensive project and I think it came out looking really good.
Finally organized my room a bit more
There wasn't much room for shoes, so I put a shoe rack on top of the existing one
She's kinda lewd so my little sis (age 16), came in and put it on her as a joke
I made the mistake of browsing craigslist in my area. So many people are selling Art Deco Vanities for around 200 dollars. I'm so tempted.
Thank you all! I'll check out Craigslist once I have access to the house. Now I have to make a pin board for furniture deco.
Another question: has anyone ever gotten these silicone hanging lamp things? I see them on AE and I guess they're a knockoff ikea item. I was wondering if they were quality on AE and if it would be feasible to put up a decent bunch and make them cute flowery shades
You could have your bed on top of shelves and drawers.
I just moved to a new house and I'm looking for ways to make my new room cuter, but everything looks cluttered (much smaller than my old one)
How would you gulls feel about me self posting my bedroom looking for concrit?
Thats not one of the vanities, I just wanted a nice picture.
But it's so tempting. Even if I could afford one I don't think I could get it into my room.
There needs to be more cute rooms with figure displays.
Not necessarily cute, but very clean.
Same anon from >>8688108
here are some shots of my room. I wish it looked neater and I'm just looking for general concrit and ways to organize it better so it doesn't look so mishmash
>inb4 get rid of stuffed animals
>inb4 stop being such a weeb
I wont and you can't make me
can also post pics of my rilakkuma themed bathroom if there is any interest
it's actually a huge styrofoam/wood board
I got it for free but I never had a place to put it until now.
I don't have any other headboard, so if I take it down, would the wall look too blank?
my dream is to combine this aesthetic with all of my weeby shit. Any examples of this being pulled off?
Your room is cute and has a lot of personality, but there are a few things that make it not the best IMO
>the wall color. it looks dusty and faded and not inviting. I'm honestly just a fan of white walls.
>mix-matched furniture colors...wood desk, black table, white shelves. really throws everything off. consider new funiture or painting it or even like throwing a fabric cover over your black table and just stick with white and wood.
>strangley placed posters. I'm not a huge fan of posters unless you have a lot of them, or they match the colors of the surrounding area, or they'll strategically placed. try putting them closer together maybe?
Glad I could help! Love how your figures and stuffed animals are all organized and placed with thought. And I love your stuffed animal net. I got one recently and it makes me so happy
Cute! Yeah, I felt a bit awkward buying a net, but I'm glad I did in the end.
I kept collecting more and more stuffed animals (many have sentimental value, so I hate getting rid of them)
old enough to be an ageplayer, but not an ageplayer.
I saw this comment coming though, considering my choice in decor.
Do you see a way I can make it still look cute without being so juvenile?
>not willing to get rid of stuffed animals because I'm a babbie
>Super Sonico thingy
>All these pretty dresses
Oh my gosh anon.
I need to ask you something
Is that black and white dress considdred lolita? I saw it and i desperately want it but...not sure it could be considered as such.
i am also a stuffed animal hoarder because i have this weird problem with projecting feelings onto inanimate objects and getting way too attached to things and i can never get rid of them. I keep most of them in wicker baskets/cute storage boxes from ikea so that they're out of sight and not getting dusty from just sitting on a shelf, and then the bigger/more sentimental ones live on my bed. easy!
I can confirm that it looks cool in photos but is a bitch to use a bathroom with a free-standing tub and no shower curtain. I love showers too much to go that far when it comes to muh aesthetics.
Does anyone know any sites (besides YJA and mbok which I've been stalking) where you can buy a kotatsu futon set shipped to US that won't cost an arm and leg?
I bought a secondhand kotatsu locally but just need the futon. Anyone happen to know if they sell any at Marukai or any other stores in Los Angeles?
Am I the only one who thought Milky Fawn's room was really ugly? I hate rooms that are basically just minimally organized hoards of kawaii shit in rooms with color schemes that don't fit with it. She made a good call changing everything.
lol someone just put this up in my area for 200$
oh alright, the heater makes it better.
def eating with a blanket on and a heater under said blanket sounds heavenly.
downside is you prob end up having to wash the poor blanket a lot, so they probably get faded quickly.
doesn't make me want one any less tho. i need one for every room.
Eyyyyyyyyyyyy. I love that plush net sling. That's a great idea. I have way too many sitting on my bed.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a small sewing area? I'm trying to make due with this cubby, but it sucks for big projects. I have to move everything down to the common room in my apartment and steal the tables.
(Also does anyone have pictures of cute fabric storage? I've googled it before and there are some neat looking ideas, but a lot are geared more towards quilting fabric, not multiple yard cuts.)
Stuffed animals and dolls are fine, it's mostly the giant bear decal that's freaky. Just because it was free doesn't mean you have to keep it. I actually like the mint walls but they're a little overwhelming, maybe paint 1-2 walls cream to break it up a bit. It's not really that cute at all right now, mostly because you have near zero decorations (not counting the toys). Put washi tape along your shelves, get cute hooks and hang up necklaces, get some cheap cute framed art from ikea, anything.
It always confuses me on how all these pictures never have any shelves. I own a lot (really a lot) of books and when I move out I'll take all of them with me, but I never see ideas for cute bookshelves... Only shelves that fit 3 books and that's it.
i've got a few pictures of storage you could use
also i always always ALWAYS suggest digging through pinterest for storage ideas because pinterest is god damn amazing.
I have a small space and I'm always on the lookout for ideas to maximize it.
Looking at your pic, I have a couple ideas on how to get more out of what you have.
Consider a fold-out table so you can have more of a tabletop to work with. (can't tell if it'll work with your space from the pic)
Since you're limited on tabletop space, try using wall space. They make mountable thread racks and hanging shelves/containers for you to keep notions on. You can also hang shears and scissors up on a hook. The other anon's idea to store fabric in a wall magazine holder is a good idea, too. You could get some wall shelves and keep fabric on it like pic related.
I'll post more pictures from my inspiration folder that will hopefully give you some ideas.
yeah i guess i'm just having an identity crisis because i love the minimal look but i also love the clutterbug kawaii shit. I just really want to blend the two.
I think maybe if i had a room like this and put my plushes on the bed it'd look okay. Considering selling my figures because it's just getting so hard to decorate around them.
I think if you want to go minimal style. Consider rotating out things you have on display. A friend of mine would rotate them out in specific themes. Like for summer he'd have the beach themes ones, then come fall he'd switch to school uniforms.
That way you avoid over cluttering stuff, and you can try new themes.
I personally just keep them on a regular bookshelf that i also keep trinkets on and share with my bfs music equipment. I like being able to mix color schemes and create interest with things besides books. besides that i'd saw paint your shelves. the only other thing i can think of is that in high school one of my friends kept her books in this shelfl that was more like a collection of cubbies and each cubby had a different color binding for the book. it looked great but idk if you could find a shelf like that
i also keep other stuff on the shelves with my books, but these room threads never have any real inspiration that includes large bookshelves, so i'm just kind of fumbling around with organizing things. right now i try to organize by genre (costuming, science, fiction novels, nonfiction, cookbooks, etc), but i have a LOT of fucking books. i moved cross country a few years ago and realized easily 60-70% of my stuff was boxes of books.
right now most of my books are in a couple of ikea kallax units (the cube ones, a 2x2 and a 2x4) plus a small 2 row bookshelf in my room, but i still have a lot in boxes.
ideally someday i'll devote an entire room in my home to books, but for now inspiring bookshelf pics, please?
So i organized my skincare/haircare/makeup shelf today
As long as figures are spaced out well they can aid the minimal look.
Saw this at my local thrift shop Monday and went back yesterday and it was already gone. I'm still kicking myself
They look like the little led lights they used to sell. They come in individual or multipacks.
Or it could also be these.
Hehe thabks. Yes they are Vintage Paperdolls. The zipper is a small ribbon and the inside i use it to store my facemasks and eyemasks. It's super duper cute and nice. you should get one.
I own the same shelf as this! I've always wondered how people got to make their deeper shelves look so uncluttered with manga but it's just not about doubling back with books? I own too much shit that's not uniform..
If you have the same floorplan, it totally makes sense. So long as you don't have the exact same furniture and photos, it'll be fine (although that would be a hilarious, if expensive, prank to pull off).
Get another shelf to put on top of that spilling out one. Or just get more boxes to throw all of the small stuff in you're so keen to display. Also that suitcase (?) and the way you piled random shit on it is ridiculous.
I got this from daiso(put a few tubes in as example). It has adjustable dividers in it. Otherwise, try Burlington coat factory. I've seen nice organizers at decent prices.
The suitcase is moving into storage, it's fragile so I didn't want to cram it into my closet.
I'll see if I can put up a self or two, the homeowners are adamant about stuff like that
I apologize, other anons were posting their rooms. Since it looks so shitty, why not give me some advice? I'm open to suggestions.
This picture is literally most of my room, so I don't have much space to start with.
I got this vanity for $100 off craiglist. I'm happy that the paint job it terrible so I won't feel bad about redoing the paint.
I wish there were non-pink ones, but I did what I could.
I'm struggling with how to orient a couch, kotatsu and tv in the living room. I have yet to get a big tv though so maybe that's the answer?
I have a deep bookshelf that you double back on. I put all of my one offs and manga that are just like two or three volumes in the back (alphabatized) and then in the front I have manga that makes up a few volumes or a series, like 14 volumes of something. It's not that hard, and will look fine if you just alphabatize things or you arrange by color or size. I wish I wasn't stupid when I was younger though buying so many single volumes and just never buying more.
Any kawaii desk inspo? Mine looks like shit.
I've lilac walls but my desk is pine and plonked right in the middle of my room. It's depressingly plain compared to other cute rooms I always see. For reference, on it I've my monitor, speakers, a pen pot, a big candle, and three nendoroids.
It seems as if all the desks I like work because they're next to a wall.
I'll dump some. Moving house soon so I've been saving loads of cute rooms.
does anyone have any room pictures that aren't girly af? i mean these would all be wonderful if i were living alone but i can't turn my bedroom into kawaii paradise when i share it with my boyfriend.
can i possibly get some decor ideas that won't send my boyfriend out to rent his own apartment?
I don't quite understand the kotatsu fad. It looks uncomfortable af unless you lay under it like >>8700660, but when you lay like that wouldn't it just be more convenient to use a blanket instead of a blanket attached to a low table?
I got paranoid about dust/fading/color bleed so I put all my dresses in bags recently. They're cute polka dot bags from ikea but I still feel like it makes my closet look like a clothes morgue. Any ideas for how to make it look cute while still protecting my dresses? I'm thinking of decorating the outsides of the bags somehow
Sage for moderately off topic but, you can use lolita with other words. like "lolita fashion" is a no go but "lolitafashion" works fine. Otherwise if you have adult oriented on then weird "shemale1985xXx" blogs start to follow you
I'm not sure what the difference is then. Sorry to be a pest. These are what I'm using, are these okay? http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10287252/
I just bought a condo with my husband he's really into /k/ related stuff and I'm a sweet lolita. Most of our furniture is from the 50-60s and I really love any help with decorating, so our place doesn't look like a disaster with an identity crisis.
I'm not too sure about the material itself, but it's open at the top and bottom. The other garment bags I considered getting are made of that non-woven reusable grocery bag stuff, not sure if that would be better. I could also potentially sew some myself out of cotton.
Just moved into a new place, my favourite part is my weeaboo corner, in the drawers I have craft supplies and old cosplay costumes.
can anyine post rooms that are more, idk, adult? like don't get me wrong, the stuffed animals and shit are cute but i'm in my twenties and would like to hav people over at some point.
figurines are good, though.
Anyone here is a tiny little femchink in the UK? i was walking back from uni and i saw her walking home. Electric pink sneakers, pink sweater(?) with bunny ear hood and pink beret. Beige skirt and those net things women wear on their legs with a deep pink backpack with bunny ears. I was so intrigued i had to come here, for the first time and ask. Found a thread with pink to post
obviously the colors are total shit and you should not at all make your walls and entire bed the exact same pattern, but i really like he furniture and the setup of this room i just scrolled past on tumblr
i managed to drop the pic
I was bored at work so I came up with a few layouts. Obviously some of these won't work depending on your actual furniture size and type (for example, is "storage" a shelving unit? chest?), but I hope these give you some ideas on how to redecorate!
I'm trying to figure out what to do with the 'nook' area of my room. This was the closest picture i could find. The ceiling is concave, but tall enough for my (short) shelf to stand up in it. It's 4 feet by 5 and a half feet and raised a few inches from the rest of the room. It's also the only window I have so I don't want to block it.
You guys probaly dont remenber, but i posted my desk here about a year ago i think. Well today i changed my background to the one i had at the time.
so since last time
