Redecorating (part 1)

Hi everyone! Here’s my second bucket list post, enjoy!

Today I got asked the question “What style of design do you like?”. It wasn’t just based on what you want your room to look like though. It was based on style in general, so also on stuff like your clothing style. The thing was, I couldn’t answer the question. I honestly don’t know because I switch styles so often. I like so many different things in life and I’m terrible at picking one. No matter if it’s about food, shoes or movies.. It takes me forever to decide. (If I decide.) I mean it’s nice to be ok with basically everything but it just makes making choices so much harder. Honestly, before I went to college I didn’t know whether I wanted to study communications, engineering, neuroscience or architecture.. I decided based on the school I wanted to go to. Eventually I switched from the major I had in mind to another one and then I switched schools and ended up with yet again another major. This one actually seems a good fit. (In case you didn’t know or didn’t remember, it’s communications.)

So I’m getting off track. This is all connected because I wanted some change again. Like I said I have many different styles and sometimes it’s time for a new one. I decided to redecorate my room because I got bored of it being the same for so long. I needed something new. So far I’ve only taken small steps. For now it’s just one wall.

This is what it was like before:

Over the years I’ve gathered quite some drawings and pictures and I made a bit of a collage from it. I liked it then and I still kinda do but it just makes the room a lot messier. (I’m already messy and a wall that’s completely covered with all sorts of things does not make it any more organized.)

That’s why I decided to take everything off the wall and start again. This time with less images. I also framed some, so it doesn’t just blend into the wall. I feel like now I need less things to fill the empty space.

After being a little creative with Adobe Illustrator (which I’ll tell you about in a bit) I had some new items to put on my wall. I framed them and now my wall looks like this:

This is what I’ve done so far but I’d also like to do the wall that you can see on the left. It basically has the same problem as the other one had. It’s just really full. My desk is still on the list as well, so who knows. There might be a part 2 in a couple of weeks.

A little more about the images that I’ve framed. The tiger is just a picture I got from Google. I might actually be able to make one myself in Adobe Illustrator but it just takes a long time so why not just use one that’s on Google? The ones with text I did create myself. Since it’s mostly text you can easily make those. You could even do it in Word but I prefer Illustrator because it’s designed to make things like posters. You just have more options and if you know how it works it’s a lot easier too.

Just a little tip. If you know that you’re like me and you like to switch styles a lot. Don’t use a ton of nails or tape that won’t really come off. I mean I could photoshop all the tape away for now but we all know photoshop is just a temporary thing and not the solution. Other wise everyone would look like they do on their profile pictures. I wish we did but we (at least must of us) don’t.

So that’s it! Thank you for reading! Feedback is always appreciated.
