Inside my boudoir

En: Decorating is one of the things I like to experiment with. I am that kind of person that needs constantly to see  beautiful things around.  The bedroom, or the boudoir as I like to call it, is one of the places I spend most of the time, so for my daily spiritual balance it has to look nice and cozy. 

The night before I flew to Moldova I moved to a different apartment. That was a hell of a day: work, packing after work , cleaning the old place, arranging the new one, getting the luggage ready for the trip, OMG. My advice, never do that, it's so stressful, there is that uncomfortable feeling of sleeping in a new house, and the second day I kept getting the impression I forgot something. 
I came back to Dallas with the same feeling I am in a unknown house, because before I left I didn't have time to get used to the new app. Finally this week I had time to get to know the place, I went to IKEA, chased some ideas and finished decorating. I like playing with forms and I found that the cubicles on top of the bedsides would look good. It seemed to me the white wall was too simple, and having a few pictures hanging on it too banal. The cubicles came along perfectly. They are also the ideal place to keep my  books because I would always pour water on them at night when I had them on the bedside. The last advantage: they cost only 19$.
Ro: Decoratul e una din activitatile mele cu care imi place sa experimentez in limita posibilitatilor. Plus ca sunt o persoana care iubeste cu ochiul, si  pentru echilibrul meu spiritual zilnic trebuie si sa imi placa ceea ce vad in jur, adica dormitorul sau buduarul asa cum imi place mie sa il numesc, locul unde petrec cel mai mult timpul. 
Seara inainte de a zbura in Moldova, ne-am mutat intr-un nou aprtament. A fost o nevoie de zi, servici, mutat dupa servici,  impachetare, despachetare, curatarea vechiului apartament, pregatirea bagajelor, si nu mai stiu cite altele. Recomandarea mea pentru voi, nu faceti asa ca noi. E prea stresant, plus senzatia aia de disconfort cind dormi in casa noua, si apoi a doua zi aveam constant impresia ca am uitat ceva. M-am intors inapoi in Dallas cu acelasi sentiment  ca ma aflu in casa straina, pentru ca inainte de a pleca nu am avut timp sa ma acomodez cu noile imprejurari. In fine, saptamina asta mi-am luat ragazul si inspiratia de coarne, am plecat la IKEA si m-am apucat de treaba.  Imi place sa ma joc cu formele, de aia am optat pentru cuburile deasupra noptierelor, peretele fiind alb mi s-a parut gol si doar ornarea citorva tablouri mi s-a parut prea banala, plus ca costa doar 19$ bucata. Acum sunt fericita, pentru ca am unde sa imi tin lectura de dinainte de somn, fara ca sa imi stea in calea paharului cu apa. 
En: I also found original the idea of keeping a basket for the blanket that I use during the day when  I watch a movie or  read a book without getting inside the bed. I changed the lamp shades of the lamps and used the old ones as decor on the top of the cubicles. Paris, London and New York are always present, I said if I don't live in one of the cities at least I have them on top of my bed. 
Mom gave me the beautiful bed-sheet set with huge fuchsia poppies that match wonderfully with my other purple wall. The pillows are a must as well, the more the better, in different colors, shapes and dimensions. I find them to enrich visually the room, plus you cand find them at an amazing price of 12$ a piece at IKEA or even better for 6-8$ at Burlington, TJ Maxx and other outlets.
Ro: Mi s-a parut originala ideea unui cosulet in care sa tin plapuma de rezerva pe care o folosesc atunci cind privesc vre-un film sau stau in pat fara ca sa desfac neaparat cearsafurile. Am schimbat capacul veiozei, iar pe cele vechi nu le-am aruncat ci le-am pus deasupra pe cuburi. Parisul, Londra si New Yorkul raman mereu prezente, daca nu locuiesc in unul din orase macar sa el am deasupra capului.
Mami mi-a daruit acest frumos set de pat cu maci fuchsia, care se potrivesc de minune cu celalalt perete violet. Pernele sunt si ele un must pentru mine, cit mai multe, colorate, de diverse marimi, imbogatesc  vizual odaia, mai ales ca la IKEA se gasesc la un pret bun de 12$ sau daca sunteti din SUA, la Burlington, TJ Maxx le gasiti la preturi si mai bune de 6-8$ bucata. 
En: My new favorite piece is the old style alarm-clock.
Ro: Cea mai recenta piesa care a si devenit preferata, ceasul alarma in stl vechi. 
En: I invaded the whole house with frames, if you are in US you can always find great deals at half price ar Ross and Burlington.
Ro: Mi-am invadat casa cu rame si alte chitibusuri, pentru cei care locuiesc in SUA, puteti gasi aceste lucrusoare la jumatate de pret la Ross si Burlington.
My favorite pics in the house!
