While I’m on the subject of sharing things I love, I thought I might give you a little peek into my bedroom. I suppose because I’m a creative person I like to surround myself with things that stimulate me, that inspire me and that generally make me happy. My bedroom is my special little place of my own so I’ve turned the walls into a bit of a memory/inspiration board.
Looking around the walls of my room you’ll find bits and pieces of my life and loves, collected from all kinds of places. Things to keep me organised, photos, memories of a night with friends, gig posters, postcards, invitations, cute pug pictures cut out from the newspaper, a square of toilet paper with a happy face cut into it that was left under the covers of my bed. Things that make me smile.
But I’m lucky enough to have a rather spacious bedroom and there’s still plenty of wall to be filled. The space above my bed was looking especially bare so I was on the hunt for something cool to decorate it with. Not just anything though, whatever it was going to be it had to be interesting, inspiring, a representation of me in some way.
One day when I was browsing the clothes on Ruff n Ready I noticed that they actually also had a section called art. Curious, I clicked on the link and was brought face to face with fantastic art from famous artists and little-known names to international artists to familiar local faces. There’s a huge range on offer, but the dark yet playful imagery of Never Say Die Art’s zombie girls really caught my eye.
There were so many single prints to choose from and then I came across a set of three. I have a thing for sets and symmetry, especially when it comes to interior decorating, so I knew my mind was made up. Before I knew it, the prints arrived safely in a protected package. I set about trying them this way and that on my walls – like I said, I have a thing and proper order was important to me.
For now I’ve just stuck them up with some blu-tak just to give me time to let them settle in and make sure they fit with their new home. I think in a little while I might grab some nice black frames to hang them in and make them a kind of feature-come-bedhead. The prints are 8 x 10 “ and at just $20 I think I might even get some more!

A camera malfunction meant I had to use this cruddy ipad back up picture :(
They certainly add something a little more interesting to the room and now draw your eye straight to bed as soon as you walk through the door.
Yeah, like as if I needed any encouragement!
