Home // Bedroom Rearrange & "Studio" Workspace

Annie Pancake // Bedroom and Workspace Move Around : White with Accents So at the end of January I mentioned that I'd given my room a little move around. I was feeling super down, convinced I had to spend every waking hour working on my uni project, suffering from the fear of unoriginality, coping with a few sad and stressful things in life, and throwing myself headfirst into a much more intensive blogging schedule.

I was feeling super depressed and struggling to shake it off, and struggling to even talk about it with anyone. Until I decided to just lay everything to one side for a day and just focus on feeling better - not worrying about an impending blog post I hadn't photographed yet, or hauling my sick self out of bed to make into the studio by 10am (and feeling dreadful if I was later than that) About half way through the day, I had my mind set on moving my room about, so that was that. I finished at about 12, in darkness, and it had the same glorious feeling as your first night in your 'new room' when you move house.

When I moved in, I'd felt that I didn't really have much choice with where I put things in my room. The indent in the main wall kind of suggested that the bed should go there, and I had my heart set on having my workspace under the window. (pictures of how my room was set up before here, here, here, here and here!) In the end I decided to defy the traditional way to fit my belongings in my room, and put my bed in front of the jutting-out wall, using the gap to store my trunk on it's side, which looked a million times tidier and is a convenient place to artfully arrange my trinkets.

Moving the bed to one side gave me space to relocate my workspace to the 'ground floor' (aka, not up that step in my dorma window!) which meant that pulling my chair back was no longer precarious and potentially life threatening. Despite my fears, my clothes rail doesn't impede on the daylight, and the space feels a whole lot more natural now that so much of it isn't crammed up there in the dorma.
It feels way bigger and I have a lot more floor space (so much room for activities!) so there's more room for me to lay sketchbooks and things out when I am doing 'big' work. Alternatively there's a lot more room for me to leave upturned plugs out to step on and clothes to fling there in a rush but of course i'm a blogger so that never happens and my room is always immaculate. I can't get over how roomy it feels!

there's more changes I'd like to make, but without knowing how long I'll be living here, this is what I'll be sticking with.
