When I enrolled in college, I intended to major in Interior Design. Later I changed my mind and now I’m majoring in International Studies. Very different. I changed from Interior Design because I was afraid that being forced to do something I love (by the clients) would burn me out on it and change how I felt about it. One bachelor’s degree (almost!) in IS later, I’m kind of still wishing I could be an interior designer. We’ll see where life takes me… :)
Mostly I designed this “dream room” because I already own the black dresser and brown bookcase. Was interested in creating a room around existing pieces of furniture.
The headboard in the design would be a “skyline” of stereotypical New York landmarks, including the Empire State building, Chrysler building, Brooklyn Bridge, and Statue of Liberty. This would be self-created, drawn onto a board of MDF and cut out with a jigsaw, and painted with high-gloss black enamel.
