Do you ever out of nowhere just get the urge to move a room around? Please say yes because then I will feel slightly more normal -- just slightly as I am quite odd. :)
This happens to me ALL THE TIME. I love moving a room's furniture, decor, art, around because it tricks my mind for a few weeks into feeling like the room is new, fresh, redone. I just love that feeling.. like a new car smell, only it's a new room smell and it doesn't cost $23,000 like a new car does.. its FREE!! I like free. :)
The problem here is that we live in a townhouse. Our home is not tiny by any means, but we are very limited in how we place furniture due to the narrowness of our space, and the lack of any real room separation. For example, our downstairs is really just one big room. We try to separate the dining area from the living area with our furniture placement, so unfortunately there's not much rearranging that can be done.
Upstairs, however, is where I am currently getting the "rearrange me!!!" itch. Our second bedroom
doubles triples as our guest room, my office, and a storage area -- though it's organized storage and not chaos like it was a few months back. :)
Here's what our second bedroom is looking like right now
I have been spending a TON of time in this room since I've been working on so many things for my blog and web design business. The room functions as is, but I'm just not a fan of the layout, or my current desk (especially the color of the desk). I really think I want a work area that is a little more streamlined (I'd like to move all of the items on the expedit shelf into the closet) and less cluttered.
My only hesitance is that the other furniture in the room is definitely not modern and streamlined. I don't want a matchy matchy feel but I'm just not sure whether this desk will just look silly among the curved lines and ornate details of the headboard and dresser mirror, etc.
I'm thinking about tackling the rearranging this weekend and seeing how I feel before deciding to buy the desk. Do you think the desk would look okay with the other furniture in the room? Am I the only crazy one that wants to rearrange a room every few months? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
I'll be sure to update you on how the rearranging goes next week! :)
