Moving ideas - in the blue

It is moving season here in Quebec, and many people are finding new cute places to set up and decorate as their own as our national moving day, July 1st, is approaching. It seems we are the only place on earth where a major part of the people move on the same day, which makes things easy for some and extremely complicated for others.

I went to help my friend move into her new apartment where she will be living alone for the first time (after leaver her parent's house to live with her boyfriend many years ago) and we started thinking about all the cute things we can buy or DIY to decorate her place ! I love decorating and making a place this special cocoon where I can stay in peace, being the little lonely home lover I am.

This year I decided I would stay at my current apartment, so for the first time in years I will live in the same place for two years in a row ! I like my area (even if traffic is hell) because it is quite quiet, my neighbors in the block are not disturbing at all and my apartment, even if it is missing space for organizing, is nice enough to not bother moving again. But helping my friend move just made me want to move for the sake of decorating again and buying furniture and decor pieces ! I think I will definitely save this year to be able to find a cute place to move next spring and hopefully it will be nice and I can stay there even longer !


I might have shared this with you already but I bought myself a new bed cover set ! When I originally moved here in my studio, I had a twin size bed for one person but my parents offered me a new Queen size bed that is very big ! My old small mattress was all busted so instead of buying a new small one they decided it was about time I'd get my "adult" bed ahaha. But sadly I didn't have money to invest in a nice bed cover at the time and was OK with using my smaller comforter to cover me until I would find a nice one I would like. I wanted one of the magnificent sets from Anthropologie but with their steep prices and the need to buy a comforter to put inside the covers, it made the price even more unfathomable. So I kept searching for this one nice comforter that I would love and I found this one that looks a lot like the Anthropologie ones, on Wayfair ! They have a lot of home decor items, and their price was very good ! So I'm waiting for my nice set this week, and I'm very excited about it. It made me really feel like my room doesn't represent me anymore. 

I had quite a shift in the past six months about my style and a kind of "growing up" feeling. I recently wanted a more minimalist approach to my clothes and space, so it's possible I get rid of stuff or change things around in my place. 

Even just having my precious Mana or Moi dix mois posters around make me feel like I'm still in my teenage room and I think I might put them away (most of them) to only put one or two in frames to hang them. 

There is also one thing I'd like to get out of my chest. 

Pink cute items are easy to find and so many girls have videos or blogs that are like "oh look at my feminine cute room !" with all these nice flowery pink items they got with no trouble anywhere because pink is so feminine of course.

That's just one example of pink items 

I've seen so many youtubers or blogger girls that have these rooms where they buy everything pink, get their household items pink (hair curlers, flat irons, etc...) and that's good for them ! They like pink, and they can get their life as full of pink as they want, this is great and this is not the problem. My problem is regarding people who don't like pink. Like myself. 

I hate pink. I try to avoid it at all costs, as much as I do gold. I have tried countless times in my life to fill my house with blue items (mostly royal blue but also sometimes regular other blue since royal blue reduces my choice even more) but it is often just completely unavailable. Of course I have the black  option most of the time, or white, but why then, is pink an option and not other colors ? It often frustrates me that there are pink toasters or pink flowery throws but not a lot of blue flowery items or other blue things that are as "cute" as the pink ones. Maybe it's because I am also extremely anal about not having pink and gold in my house that I will avoid getting make-up because their packaging has gold on it, or because the smallest details are pink. I won't buy mascara if the bottle is pink. Etc... Which makes everything so complicated ! I think for the future I will stay in the white and black items for my decor, and only getting the easy blue objects such as pillows, throw blankets or other details like this. I hope I can get a nice space that inspires me in the future, with my favorite colors around me.

In fact, I have a second Tumblr account where I post only images of the blue-white-black spectrum because it is a very calming and soothing feeling for me when I see these colors and when I visit this blog. I hope you can give it a check and follow it if you like !

I hope you enjoy it ! If I end up finding new decor to fill my house with I'll be sure to share !
