My new (empty) bedroom

What housework?

I'm not sure whether I mentioned that I'm switching bedrooms. I've been sleeping on a futon for the past few years, which is doable but not comfortable, so when Defulct decided not to move his bed to North Carolina, I bought it from him. I liked his bedroom better anyway, so instead of moving his bed, I'm just moving into his old room.

And so far, everything I've moved is what you see in the picture. Bed, table, lamp, alarm clark, book, teddy bear. (Oh, and a fan that you can't see.) And you know what? I really really like it. I'll probably add a few things - a real nightstand instead of a folding table, a dresser so I can have my clothes in there, maybe a small bookcase and a chair. But I really like the minimalist look. And how uncluttered it is. So I have hope that I might actually be able to keep it that way. (Yes, I know that all of you who have ever seen any of my other bedrooms are laughing at me right now.) But maybe I can do it! With the extra space I have now, I can keep all my yarn and other craft stuff in a separate room, so that will help a lot.

I do know that I've been sleeping SO much better in there. Part is the real bed, of course, but I'm sure part is how calm and relaxing it is.

I agree that it's so important to have a clutter-free bedroom. And I'm glad to hear that you're sleeping well in the new bed!

Looking around my bedroom now (that's where my computer is)...I really should do some decluttering today. Your pic is an inspiration!

It's lovely. Coming from New York I'm struck by the trees right outside the window.

So your old bedroom will be a sort of office/guest room/craft room?

That's very cool!

I miss having extra space...

Ooooh if you want furniture, you should come with me when I go on my Ikea run!

I can't believe what you said about the uncluttered look!! I seem to recall discussing that very subject with you once or twice. Maybe there is a little Ardolino in you!

I know I definitely sleep better in an uncluttered bedroom. I hope you have better luck than me keeping it that way!

That is one tidy bedroom :)

I loved moving into my new house because it meant I got the computer out of the bedroom. All I have now is a bed, bedside table, bookshelf and a dresser. Oh, and a spare dining room chair that won't fit anywhere else :^)
