Le Room - Pt. 1

I promised you guys I would give you a sneak peak of my room, so here it is! I'm about halfway done with the decorating so I only took a few shots. I'm living in a 19th century Victorian brownstone with original fixtures, so I decided to use that as inspiration for how decorate. I'm going for a mix between Victorian decadence and French country side. (P.S: Just in case you were wondering, yes that's me on the couch...just with some new additions to my hair. I put in Senegalese twists and I'm in love with them.)
Window seat from South Africa
The one and only downside to my room is the closet space. It's pretty much nonexistent. I love clothing racks better anyway because I can see everything more easily, so I bought two of them for my clothes and store my shoes and handbags on shelves in the closet (those pictures will come in a later post).
Zara blouse - similar here and here
I'm wearing a vintage kimono and American Apparel disco pants.
 
I hope you all enjoyed these pictures as much as I did!
