I'm in a decorating rut.
I said it. Sue me. Don't actually. But I just haven't felt the mellow of my room yet. I have a really dark cherry secretary's desk, a white iron bed, an old white and tarnished silver-pull dresser, and a princess chair (don't know why I call them that, it's a plain upholstered armchair) I covered in yellow silk.

But it's not where I want it to be yet. I have these navy blue pillows that totally meshed with the blue walls of my last--very temporary--room. But now it's back to white (ergh). The landlord doesn't want ANYTHING done to the walls. Not even tape. Tape for goshsakes. Oh, and 3M hooks are also out of the question, as it was explicitly denied in the lease. Crazy.

So I've been doing what everyone does, as I hear: looking for a new bedspread to change it up.
I know. The Ralph Lauren obsession might not be at its strongest right now. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE RL Home more than any other home design lifestyle brand thang. But I've had the same style (in twin, queen comforter, and queen duvet) since elementary school. Really. I was checking out PBTeen's clearance section and found this:
In yellow, of course.
**At this point I have to do an aside and defend my love of PBTeen. I've actually never bought anything from there, but the stuff is pretty cute and can be deeply discounted if you look hard enough. What? What's that you say? I'm not a teen? You got me. I'm also just-turned-over-21 so I guess I can't shop at Forever 21 anymore. Or I can go and "relive my youth." Either way, I'm hittin' the sale rack :)
So what shall it be? A new duvet? Will that really make a difference? I'm thinking another Canopy DIY could be the answer. Or maybe I just need a nice something to hang on the wall. I'm also missing my jewelry and most of my clothes. Clothes make the home (is that mean to say?).
I really need your help! I need the inspiration, guys. I need some ideas on how to get myself out of this decor rut. I'm even considering bleaching my navy pillows in desperation to get a smoother color scheme. Please!
