lolita bedrooms 
5th-Mar-2008 09:11 pm
Hello to all! I am posting for some inspiration and ideas.

Today i made a deal with my boy freind that allows him to decorate the games room how he likes but in return i am allowed to decorate the bedroom!

So what i am asking is do any of you have specifically lolita inspired bedrooms?

Now, because i share the bedroom with him it cannot be overly sweet, but it will definitely be the home for my dollfies  Avylinn and Phillipe and possibly my sewing machine.  So i was thinking about it being more classic with maybe neutral colours and some lovely furniture but other then an antique corner unit i do not really have any great lolita furniture so i am coming to you all for advice and ideas as to how to decorate my room and if there are any great furniture out there that would work great in a lolita bedroom. (i am excited about buying a bed the most)

Pictures and links are welcome :)


thankyou all

princessportal.com has a great bit about lolita bedrooms in the writing section
http://princessportal.com/?page_id=261

And there are some communities on livejournal like ourbedrooms and saucydwellings. Hope that helps.

thankyou, yes that helps a lot, i am gathering as much information and advice as i can. plus its just fun to take a peek into other peoples rooms at times (and usually wish i lived there x3)

lol, totally. I also really like apartmenttherapy.com, they have like a couple updates a day of innovative new things for the home and creative ways to store things and display. I think your best bet for getting a lolita bed is to look at websites like anthropologie and urbanoutfitters that have the rococo style beds. Have fun!

There's photos of my bedroom up on my LJ here: http://iamchubbybunny.livejournal.com/229483.html

hehe... It's very sparse but accented by pretty bits...!

oh my! I absolutely adore that bed! Thats just the kind of thing i would want, I am so jealous.

The round mirror you have is also wonderful. i really need to get some mirrors we have spaces on the walls where they would hang perfectly.

thank you for showing me :)

I love your bed!!

What is your budget for redoing the room? Can you paint the walls? Feel up to doing wallpaper? How big is the room?

Sorry, I'd don't mean to bombard you with questions, but there's many things to consider...
5th-Mar-2008 10:50 pm (UTC)
It's ok. I have just done a room plan and i may upload it when i have done but as a basic estimate it is (including doors and windows) 13 feet X 10.5 feet (including a 2 foot window) X 10.9 feet x 97 feet (including a 5 foot old firebreast)so its a decent size ^_^

my budget is not big but i plan to take my time doing this so i could spend about £200 ($400) a month on things such as paint and wallpaper this doesn't count furniture at the moment apart from specific things as i can get normal furniture relatively cheap.

I can do as much as i want to the flat. The only restrictions are that it is done well so that when i move out i don't have to repaint (thats more my own preference) I enjoy decorating and have access to anything i need, as well as willing helpers so i am open to everything. The only big restriction is the small stairwell meaning i have to measure all unpacked furniture so that it will get up the stairs -_- (the sofa was a haul)

You can try playing around at http://www.bbc.co.uk/homes/design/design_inspiration/

I've found many inspirations for future projects there! XD

Oh hey, I have dollfies too. <3 It's cool that you get to redecorate your room in a lolita theme. You should get a cute heart-shaped vanity.
5th-Mar-2008 11:00 pm (UTC)
i think a heart shaped vanity may make my boy friend sick XD. Although if i found a perfect one i am sure i could sway him or just sneak it in anyway :) His only rule so far is no purple which is fair as i hate purple.

Its also fortunate that my Dollfies are based around 1700 French fashions as it means they will be part of the decoration as well as my cute little "toys" ^_^

Definitely check out http://community.livejournal.com/saucydwellings and http://community.livejournal.com/saucyhelp They're both great for inspiration and the help community always comes up with awesome ideas.

Out of curiosity, who's that in your icon?
6th-Mar-2008 10:16 pm (UTC)
Hillary Duff! (I am pretty sure..)

Here are some pictures of my old bedroom:

(The walls were very much inspired by the walls in Angelic Pretty boutiques ^-^)

I think that little things make all the difference. You could have an average, boring bed, but with the right linens, it could turn out to be spectacular (just the first example that came to mind)! I love the idea of having a bunch of different parfums in decorative bottles, as well. I don't know why, but its always reminded me of lolita in a way.

I hope I helped! >.

That is SO pretty! I have always wanted a room decorated like the AP boutiques!
6th-Mar-2008 03:49 pm (UTC)
oh wow that is so pretty :3 i love the walls except i would need to use a different colour but its given me some great inspiration. thanks for showing me :)

Super Lolita furniture at low low prices...

I only have the bed from this set, but it is pure love. I also have another piece of furniture in this style, but it's an antique that I found. I share my bedroom with my husband and it also doubles as my sewing room as we live in a very small apartment. I can take pictures of my whole room tomorrow if you're interested (though it is woefully incomplete).
6th-Mar-2008 03:46 am (UTC)
Doooooooo iitttt. I want to see. :B
6th-Mar-2008 03:50 pm (UTC)
yes please :) it would be great to see the bed in a real persons room, thankyou for the link too, there really is some great furniture there!
6th-Mar-2008 03:32 am (UTC)
My room is painted Neapolitan! :D Not sure if that counts as Lolita but it sure is delicious. ;)
