What inspired you? The elegant and sexy design of the Apple Imac inspired me. Since the computer is very compact-all-in-one, I wanted to produce a minimal and clean work surface. I only had a small space to work with in the bedroom, so I decided to use the Elfa system to create shelving on top and a computer work desk on bottom. The Elfa system is easily adaptive and economical. I could custom size the computer shelf and elevate it to hide the keyboard underneath. The work area feels brighter and less cramped as it overlooks the entryway. As a lighting aficionado, I wanted various lighting options: overhead lighting on dimmers, desktop lighting and under the desk lighting. Great Tip: Find out what is behind the walls before you do any drilling! I found out the wall covered up pipes, and I needed to be very careful where I drilled.

Name: Veena Location: New York, NY Division: United States What do you love about your bedroom?: Living in a two bedroom apartment converted into three in New York City doesnât leave a lot of common living area to display and store items. Although my room is small, I get a lot of utility out of the space - a place to rest, a place to store, and a place to display artwork and other objects I love.
Initially we searched for a two bedroom, but in the neighborhood and building we wanted the price was not realistic. We found a beautiful one bedroom that we both absolutely love. Currently, we are both sleeping on separate air mattresses in the bedroom. We are ready and looking for permanent sleeping accommodations. My question is this: how can we decorate a medium sized shared bedroom for two young single women? We are looking to balance style, comfort, efficiency, and some personal space. Two fulls? Functional futons? Two queens? Is there a way our desk can stay in the bedroom? My online search for design ideas for a two adult shared bedroom proved futile. Have a question for our community?

Lately, we've been in love with deep, rich blues and Candy Pop's shade is right up our alley. Walls reminiscent of blue candy mixed with design elements similar to those in Marie Antoinette, this is one bedroom we could get comfortable in. More views of Candy Pop's fancy blue bedroom after the jump! Vintage floral curtains and antique lighting fixtures will upgrade any bedroom instantly. We also love how Candy Pop mixes mirrored accents and clear furniture which adds to the drama of a bedroom. A great combo-the classic Ghost chair paired with a romantic vanity. The bedside lamp shade reminds us of cotton candy and we love how the pair are settled on a decorative plate.
Q: Hi! I'm in the middle of buying furniture for my new apartment. Right now I have a bed/boxspring combo and a light blond colored set of IKEA drawers that I might move into my closet. Over the years I've really come to love the white Parsons desk, and have found a cheap knock-off at Target that I'm thinking about getting. My question is: with a white desk, should I try to make the rest of the bedroom furniture match and only get white things? I've really come to love the eclectic mix-matched furniture look, but could I pull that off with the inclusion of such a desk? Editor: Leave your suggestions for Alannah in the comments - thanks!
