    God I wish we had our own board for architecture, interior design, and industrial design instead of being displaced refugees stuck in /fashion/.

        gay, look at /auto/ and /n/.

        Secondly, you don’t think you’ll ever be able to buy your own home or assemble a room? that’s sad lol.

          if interior design threads were actually filled with anons attempts to make their home beautiful, that would be one thing, but literally every picture is a production still or a meme.

          I don’t care about your fake aspirations lol.

            makes no hecking difference whether anyone can afford shit or not. The idea is to post content that develops our sense of space in the places we reside.

            again, heck your dreams, anon.
            post your shitty room or shut up, these threads are shitty and pointless.

            not at all, it’s that I’m one of only 3 real photos in any thread, the rest is pointless dream posting and larping.

            here’s a nook I’m turning into a home studio, and no matter how long this thread stays up, it’ll be the only genuine photo in the thread.

            bye.

            well, for starters, it kind of looks terrible. There are floor rugs on the hecking walls and no floor rugs on the FLOOR. The desk and lamp match in style, but neither of them match with the chair or the ugly chink amazon basics keyboard stand. The rug on the wall isn’t even laid flat, it’s warped. And to top it all of those computers are just ugly as sin and clash, in my opinion, with the rugs, lamp, and desk, which at least on their own seem to make some sense together. And I know computer desktop backgrounds can be changed but the ones in this photo are particularly ugly and garish. When I see this photo I can’t help but feel hot and stuffy and a little caged in and it looks really dark in there as well.

            Not only that, but you took ONE photo weeks ago and post it again and again, so it’s not like you’re contributing new stuff every time. It’s nice that you’re actually doing something, but I don’t know, I personally don’t like it all that much.

            I think since you probably are going to have to have those computers in your home studio anyway, you may as well give up on trying to make it homely or whatever with the rugs (I know it’s for sound treatment) and the wooden desk and lamp. Instead, I’d go with a solid, light colored rug on the floor (with a protector over it where the chair goes). I’d put actual sound deadening panels on the walls, and swap out the desk and lamp for something that looks more modern and sleek in a similar vein to the keyboard stand, monitor arm, and the computer/ monitor. And finally I’d make sure it has ample light.

            He’s Russian, anon. It’s their culture to act like aliens imitating white people.

            yeah anyway

            Op here, I’m very much interested in learning About handwoven tribal rugs. can you give any advice on sourcing and Learning resources?

            I read a few blog posts about turkish/Afghan rugs a few years ago, and then it was a matter of checking estate sales and thrift stores for shit.

            they can get expensive, but they’re so unique and interesting, it’s worth it.

      Same with the pen and paper gays. There used to be /ppg/ threads on writing utensils and notebooks on /g/, which were one of the only worthwhile threads on the board. That was, before the jannies started nuking every thread ~15 posts in.

    face it, you guys would be on /diy/ if you actually had the resources to renovate, making these threads just mad men/soviet larpfests for kids living in white boxes.

      yes
      but no bath is cringe
      that counter material is trash and those flowers are ugly as heck
      and the paneling on the undersink doors is old.
      the tiles are nice but this room needs a total face lift to make it more cohesive.

        Don’t worry I’m aware, was just an example for the titles.

        I’d rather have a shower I can actually stand in than a bathtub I can’t really lie down in.

        If you have a wife they’ll insist on having a bath tub. I swear no man ever gets one voluntarily with the exception of plunge pool / hot tub.

        I want to get into Japanese/Japandi type stuff. Right now my old bed broke and I was thinking about getting a futon, anyone have experience with that? Also if all my stuff is super low to the ground will it look weird if I have a normal desk?

        It’s not good to have your workspace in the bedroom if you can help it as you’ll start to associate the room with work and not relaxation. Are their any other places you can set it up?

        • Anonymous says:

          Yeah, because women are usually short enough to fit in them. I’d take a pool instead, but that a bit outside of interior design.

      Don’t know about futons.

      A desk can work if it fits with your overall scheme. Something minimal, same with the chair. I would go with an Aalto stool.

    • Anonymous says:

      As a former skeptic myself, I can whole-heartedly attest that if the japanese got one thing right in their collective history, it would be the futon. Greatest sleep I ever had, and if you think the low to the ground nature is weird, you can always put it on a minimalist frame or pedestal.

    Gonna place a colourful framed painting on the left wall but should I put anything on the right or just leave it alone? I’ve been playing with the idea of having a curtain there.

      Damn son, do you intend to spend the next couple thousand years in stasis to be awoken after the facility is in shambles?

          Try a window?
          I’m kidding of course, but try to bring a little color into the room, and ideally add a ceiling light.
          Maybe try two mirrored paintings in the same style. Or a contrast between a landscape and a seascape.
          You could also go modern with bold colors on both sides, but then I’d stick to one warm or cold theme as to not make the room feel off balance.

          • Anonymous says:

            Thanks anon. I do have a ceiling light, it’s just out of frame in that shot. But I agree that more colour is definitely needed and ideally something that adds some warmth. Would it be gay to put something like a lambskin on that wall?

          • Anonymous says:

            Lambskin seems a bit extreme. Maybe a tapestry if you want something with a bit of texture?
            And maybe put some real wood in there, too, if you’re not too set on the clinical all-white-furniture look.

      The idea of a "digital window" is gross and dystopian to me, but maybe mount a TV and use it as a digital picture frame. High res landscape photos so you don’t feel like you’re literally trapped in a box?
