I'm trying to make my room a bit more /fa/, or at least cosy and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

I'm not in dorms, but I live in a shared student house and I'm stuck with a room with a few pieces of shitty light brown ikea furniture. The carpet is brown. I'm not supposed to nail stuff to the walls but can probably get away with smaller things, just not putting up shelves etc.

I was thinking of going for a natural/wooden/slightly preppy aesthetic for the room, as I already have earthy coloured bed sheets, but I wasn't sure what to add specifically and the best way to cover up/hide the shitty furniture.

I was thinking

- brown rug
- flannel throw for bed
- few plants in wooden pots
- some sort of antique desk/bed lamp
- was thinking I need posters or something to cover the wall, they;re a bit tacky though. maybe i should get some big tapestry like pic related just to cover up the ugly white walls?
>>
>>9314105
Your lamp is so basic bitch, I know maybe 3 or 4 people who also have that in their rooms.

Learn to fold your clothes if you must fold them. Learn to make your bed. Stop with the hippie bullshit, you're entire room screams "crust".

I don't know. Vacuum. What is with that gay shit you're doing to your curtains? Lights are shitty. Nice sippy cup. I would never be your friend. Push your fucking drawers in 100% of the way holy shit it's not that hard.
>>
>>9314141

this isn't my room, just from reddit somewhere. The items in it aren't really what I want, I like the colour scheme though. My actual room is about half the size and the furniture is a lot shitter
>>
>>9314105
pls put some of your jackets someplace that is not on those hooks because it's starting to look like an amorphous mass of black fabric. Get some hangers

Dirty dishes? Get them out of the way

maybe something that isn't earth tones for once like try some turquoise or light green
>>
>>9314141
this could be new pasta,
holy shit that diatribe lol
>>
>>9314154

again pic related is not my room, just one I found that I like the general colours of.
>>
>>9314172
how are we supposed to help if pic not related?

Heres a paint drawing I made of the layout of my room, it's pretty small and basic
>>
>>9314179

big square = bed
darker blue = chest of drawers
light blue = wardrobe
brown = desk
circle = chair
red = bed side table
window is the thin rectangle, door is obvious
>>
just post a pic OP, nobody cares enough to dox you
>>
>>9314187

can't i'm afraid, I'm not at university at the moment, I'm at home. Gonna order some things to unpack and make the room more cosy for when I get back though.

it's not much to see, I've got brown-ish bed linen, all the furniture on the layout is light brown tacky ikea wood. I was thinking of draping throws or something over it so I can't see it idk
>>
>>9314193
Well, here's the advice I can give you. >>9314141
Follow the critique I gave in this post.
DON'T go for the hippie bullshit. And if you can, avoid brown. It makes the room small and dark and it's hard to make work. Stick with lighter colors. Especially with your bed, keep the sheets a lighter color and always keep it made.
Let the room breathe, keep it clean.

probably not the best place to ask but does anybody know that furniture store in LA that sells designer stuff?
>>
>>9314141

>>
>>9314810
Go to the many middle eastern small businesses that specialize in furniture and see if you can get a custom made one. My family got ours from Suzy design. The couch is amazing quality and looks really nice but the owner is a huge asshole and delivered it a month late. I really recommend you check out where the materials are from too. Some friends of mine who are relatively neat people got a new designer dining set that looks amazing but it is shit quality.

The picture is clearly a pretty chill room. This is symptomatic of the fuccbois inhabiting this board.

Asdie from some tidying up, moving the jackets as was previously mentioned I like your room a lot

That room is garbage, you pleb. I'm not saying it doesn't have potential.

>clearly a pretty chill room.
Yeah you strike me as the kind of faggot teen who would hang that dumb tapestry on your walls. I hear they sell those at urban outfitters. You can even pick up dark side of the moon on vinyl while you're there, I know you've been dying to play something on that Crosley you got. You know the one your aunt gave you for Christmas 2 years ago? You could throw it on when you have your bros over for a bowl. Just remember to lock the door so your mom doesn't walk in.
Don't want your macbook to get taken away.
You should buy a black light, that would be so chill.

OP here... I did buy the tapestry..cost me like $12 and it covers up most of a whole wall, hippie shit I know but the white walls in my room look like shit, dented/stained/mouldy, its a shitty house.
>>
>>9315941
That's ttng though

>>9315319

To be honest this is very clean and nice, but I wouldn't particularly like to chill/smoke in here as opposed to the room in OPs post, I prefer cosy with some clutter

Looking to get a house plant for my room. Which would you suggest and where's a good place to acquire it?

>inb4 outdoors lol xD!! xD

>>9316742
Google is a great place to look for house plants.

That being said, Japanese peace lilly, spider plants, ficus, those are all ones that are aesthetically nice and good for the oxygen.

Anyway to put the bed along the window? If not, switch the bed and the desk so you don't immediately cut off the flow of the room when you walk in. It's not much, but it'll help.

Your room is far too small to do anything with.

Get a loft bed.
Sand.
Stain.
Varnish.
Get two wingback chairs.
Place under.
>>

down comforter+duvet and some fresh crispy white sheets will instantly make things comfier.

>>
>>9315282
Cluttered as all fuck. Feels really claustrophobic. I'd get rid of some shit.

If you wanted to make the room seem bigger I'd paint the walls white. God knows the hidious shit they have on them now isn't helping. I do like the cherry blossoms though, they'd look nice against a solid wall color. That mirror is pretty offensive too, so is the rug/carpet. And the couches. And the lentils that are proudly on display for some reason.

I get what you were going for but it just looks like a mess.

You might not be able to but I've gotten laid in much worse accommodation.

The truth of the matter is by living in such a poky box room no matter what you do to it'll never impress the ladies.
Luckily ladies have there own bedrooms, so just head there instead.

Already posted this one but planning on renovating my room and this is the plan I created in Visio
rectangle on the left is a bookshelf from Ikea
rectangle on the right is a wardrobe

Single or Twinbed /fa/? I would have way more space with a singlebed but I don't know if it's worth it.

Regarding the double or single you need to ask yourself if you intend have company staying over with you.

Fooling around like teenagers and one night stands are fine in a single but if its going to be a frequent event with the same partner stick with a double.

A room your size under bed storage is a must, either built in or just boxes, anywhere to hid the tat.

serious question: why do you need more than an object to sleep on + object to sit on (possibly combine with sleeping object) + object for guests to sit on + object for you and guests to eat on + kitchen and toiled appliances in your house? all these pictures and pillows and tiny tables seem unnecessary

Have got access to another room to put the TV and desk in?
A good bedroom should just be a bedroom, not a living room and office, with a bed thrown in.
But in reality space is a premium so I understand that it might not be option.

If it isn't option.
Get rid of the red bookcase, add a armchair in its space to divide the room by function, top half is the bedroom, the lower half work space and recreation are. A chair angled towards the open balcony door would be a nice spot to sit and read with a good flow of fresh air.
