In this challenge, I decided to get rid of all the furniture in my room and build the necessary pieces based on how I naturally use the space. Out goes the giant L-shaped desk, over 100 vinyls, 7 cameras, 4 mannequins, and oversized clothes. As I was getting rid of all this stuff, my mental space began to declutter.
This stage took approx 4-5 weeks.
After getting rid of all the major stuff. There was still some things lying around that could be organized. I had to dig deeper and ask myself if these miscellaneous made me happy anymore. I was able to compartmentalize the important/sentimental pieces in one crate and stash it in my closet.
Here I just changed the color from the nasty beige color to white. I wanted to feel clean and zen. The theme of the room developed as I was cleaning it out and reflected on how the process made me feel.
These are the pieces I've made with the intention of creating a movable and modular space. The design is centered around my bed but I didn't want to be confined to its stationary placement.
Where the bed is placed dictates how my room is being utilized.
- If it's dead center in the middle of the room all I'm doing is sleeping, writing, and informing visitors that the space is only for me.
- If it's moved to the wall opposite from the door the room is now open for physical hangouts and the bed is now a couch. I can beam a projector on the wall on the side of the door to play movies and games and maybe have some tea parties ;]
I love this piece because it allows me to be flexible on what I can place on the board. It grows with my interests over time.
I just can't get rid of the art books I've gotten over the years. This piece holds the right amount of items that the collection should tell you who I am without physically being there.
