blog for digs: my childhood bedroom.
patchwork quilt, from urban outfitters.
today i’m sharing with you “My childhood bedroom was” — it’s in honor of blog for digs, a fundraiser initiated by claudia cobes of stonehouselove and Beth dotolo from Hello Splendor to raise awareness for dwell with dignity, a non-profit organization geared towards helping families escape poverty and homelessness through design.
my childhood bedroom was ever evolving, much like my decor is now. i used to stay home sick from school, just to redecorate, which drove my mum mad! the bedroom of my youth was quite mod, as it was the sixties, and my walls were plastered with film posters, 45’s and pages torn from seventeen magazine (twiggy was my idol), and some very girlie accessories. pretty typical teenage girl!
i had a pretty mod rug, something like this water color rug, from urban outfitters; the beatles’ sgt. pepper lonely hearts club band was constantly on my portable turntable, from urban outfitters; and a butch cassidy & the sundance kid movie poster graced my walls. swoon.
i displayed lots and lots of flower power, like these vintage wall hangings; metal wall flowers; a case for my 45’s; and countless symbols of peace and love. it’s fun to see this all come back around!
