You know what they say, Idle hands are the devils playground, so instead of burning down my house entirely, I think I'm just going to re-do my room. Right now its got purple walls, black and white accents and is generally filled with JUNK!
A few weeks ago though, I saw a feature on FTV of Cindy Gallop's New York apartment... readers, it was a revelation. This woman is nuts. NUTS! (in the best way possible, of course). She's an advertising and branding executive part time, a total badass full time. She wanted her apartment to be like "a bar in Shanghai" after the lights go down.
So I'm going to paint my room black. Obviously, it is not going to look exactly like hers but her apartment is definately my inspiration. I think some gold grafitti is in the works along with gold leaf on the ceiling. Also, I would like a suit of armour but I suppose a skeleton will do. His name will be Moe and he will greet you at my door with a flower at which point you will squeal with glee or have a heart attack. You have been warned.
So heres the plan: my parents are going on a trip to Vancouver on July. I've enlisted my brother to move all of the furniture out of my room and then I'm going to run in and quickly paint over everything. This way, I will avoid the inevitable question, "What are you doing with all of that black paint?", from Mira (my very conservative, yet slightly freaky, Eastern European mom)
So by the time my parents come back, I will have an entirely new room.
Shoes not included.
