  3. Maria Evans says:

    I live in a small apartment but very divided. It has a large bedroom, bathroom, living room, kitchen and a balcony.
    In the room I have a king bed with two side raised, a desk, drawers and frames on the wall. I just do not like the white walls. But my next project will be painting the wall of another color that I have not yet decided due to some alterations in the decoration of the bed.
    Also dont really like to keep things under the bed and it is very common here, but unfortunately I have to do this because I do not have many places to keep that things. My desk is on the corner near the window. I have two favorite pictures on the wall above my bed.

    My room at work is a small room, painted light blue all around. I hate this colour actually..and I’m going to paint it with a cool, relaxing colour soon. I can’t wait for that moment to come. I have a big shelf for putting all my references and my pupils exercise books and school projects. There’s a big working table for me where I put my laptop and a printer. It’s a bit messy right now…waiting to be cleaned and tidied by anyone who would like to come and give me a helping hand..!
