My new room tour

Fahion blogger room tour
I've been planning on writing/publishing this article since the end of January, but as other blog posts had a higher priority I've been delaying this article a bit. Maybe some of you might have noticed or read that at the end of last year I moved out of my parent's flat and moved in with my boyfriend. We have been living together for two full months and we are slowly starting to fill our apartment with furniture. It so happened that our flat had one spare room and, honestly, I have no idea how I talked my boyfriend into giving this room for me. Seriously neither do I, neither does he remember how I did that! Magic. Anyways, since then I've been proudly calling this room my small home office, headquarters of Call me Maddie, or simpler - my blog room.
I've been collecting inspiration on how to decorate this room for months ( Tumblr and Pinterest were my best friends with this) and I came to a conclusion that you can't find a better selection of furniture than at IKEA. And when I was doing my research I noticed that a lot of fashion and beauty bloggers were actually using the same furniture I am using now. I had been collection money for this furniture for a really long time, therefore, the only matter that had to be taken care of, was actually ordering the items since in Latvia we don't have IKEA stores. Luckily I found a local company that travels to IKEA warehouses in Poland and delivers IKEA furniture to Latvia. 

I tried to find links to almost everything you can spot in these pictures: the furniture from IKEA, some home decor from H&M and acrylic makeup organizers from Ebay. Find all the links down below.

Šo rakstu plānoju blogā publicēt jau no aptuveni janvāra beigām, bet kā nesanāca tā - nesanāca :) Kā jau iespējams daudzi no jums būs to piefiksējuši tad, pagājušā gada beigās es pārcēlos, jeb ievācos jaunā dzīvoklī kopā ar savu draugu. Nu lūk, ir jau pagājuši divi pilni mēneši kopš dzīvojam kopā un pamazām, pamazām sākam iekārtot visas mūsu dzīvokļa istabas. Šeku reku tā nu sanāca, ka mums viena istaba bija tukša un man tiešām nav ne jausmas kādā veidā, bet man izdevās draugu pierunāt šo istabu atvēlēt man. Pati šo istabu lepni saucu par savu mazo ofisiņu, Call me Maddie headquarters, vai vienkāršāk par bloga istabu. 
Jau mēnešiem ilgi vācu iedvesmu tam kādu šo istabu es vēlētos izveidot (Tumblr un Pinterest bija mani labākie draugi :) ) un nonācu pie secinājuma, ka nekur nav iespējams atrast tik labas mēbeles par saprātīgām cenām kā tas ir IKEA. Pie tam ļoti daudzas blogeres un vlogeres savām istabām tieši ir izvēlējušās šīs pašas mēbeles no IKEA. Naudiņu šīm mēbelēm krāju jau diezgan ilgu laiku un vienīgā problēma bija saprast, kur tieši šīs IKEA mēbeles iegādāties, jo kā jau mēs to zinām, tad Latvijā, diemžēl, nav IKEA veikalu. Meklēju internetā, lasīju forumus un atsauksmes un gala rezultātā izvēlējos IKEA mēbeļu izplatītāju Furni.lv, jo tas manī raisīja vislielāko uzticību kā arī cenas ļoti būtiski neatšķīrās no tām, kas tiek piedāvātas oriģinālajos IKEA veikalos. Ar Furni esmu ļoti apmierināta, jo pasūtījumu veicu pirmdienā, savukārt, visas kārotās mantas jau saņēmu trešdienā vai ceturtdienā. Atnāca viss ko biju pasūtījusi, ļoti labā kvalitātē, ar instrukcijām u.tml., par atsevišķu samaksu arī sarunāju, ka visas preces tika uznestas augšā dzīvoklī.

Es centos maksimāli atrast pēc iespējas vairāk linkus no bildēm redzamajām lietām no IKEA, H&M un Ebay. Šos linkus varēsi atrast šī raksta apakšā.

Of course, as you might already know - IKEA delivers every product to you disassembled, which basically means that you have to screw and assemble everything together by yourself. But I have to add that their instructions are so good and easy to understand! Even I was able to understand everything that was said or shown in the pictures + I asked my dad and brother to help me, which made the whole process so quick and painless! The hardest part was actually the lamps as you have to connect the electricity wires and we surely struggled with putting on the wall lamps. Therefore, if you don't have a lot of knowledge about electricity I would strongly advise you to hire a professional or ask somebody to help you. I have to thank my dad and his knowledge - he is the best :)

Protams, jāpiebilst, ka no IKEA pilnībā viss pie Tevis nonāk izjauktā veidā (pat galda lampiņa), bet instrukcijas ir tiešām ļoti izsmeļošas un saprotamas un, ja Tev ir kāds vīrietis, ko pasaukt palīgā tad tiešām viss būs vislabākajā kārtībā un ar skrūvēšanu tiksiet galā diezgan ātri! Piebildīšu arī to, ka vispiņķerīgākie ir tieši ar elektrību saistītie darbi, jeb lampu nomaiņa/uzlikšana, tāpēc šo iesaku uzticēt tiešām kādam, kas saprot, ko dara, jo piemēram, sienas lampu pielikšanu bija ļoti sarežģīta. Paldies tētim :)

As you can already see in the pictures, the room has a blue floor and blue floral print wallpapers. We decided not to change the wallpapers and the floor since they were in a very good condition and, therefore, we were able to save some money as well. I have to admit, at first I was not very thrilled about the blue color because I find it too specific and kind of too cool, but now as I've been living in this flat for two months I have really grown to quite liking it + I think that it looks pretty chic with the white furniture. Originally I was planning on painting two walls white and two in an accent color or wallpaper and putting a light oak floor. Of course, the room is not nearly finished as there is still a lot of stuff that I want to add or change, for example, I want to put in some shelves as I don't like storing items on top drawer chests as it is not effective, nor pretty.

Istabā ir zila grīda un zilas puķainas (uz pelēcīga fona) tapetes, kuras saglabājās no iepriekš veiktā remonta un bija labā stāvoklī, tāpēc arī nemainījām un sapratām, ka šādi varam ietaupīt arī salīdzinoši daudz naudiņu. Teikšu atklāti - zila grīda noteikti nebūtu bijusi mana pirmā izvēle, jo tomēr krāsa ir ļoti specifiska kā arī samērā auksta, bet esmu jau ar to apradusi un, manuprāt, tā lieliski iet kopā ar baltajām mēbelēm. Oriģināli būtu krāsojusi divas baltas sienas un divas sienas kādā akcenta krāsā, vai rakstā, kā arī būtu ielikusi gaišu ozolkoka grīdu. Protams, istaba vēl joprojām nav pabeigta un tai vēl vajag daudz lietu, kā piemēram, plauktus. Pašlaik visas lietas esmu salikusi atvilktnēs vai arī uz kumodēm, kas noteikti nav pats efektīvākais un skaistākais mantu uzglabāšanas veids.

These pictures were taken at the end of January when the winter was in "full bloom", therefore, you can spot many items in dark colors, for example, the clothing rack (if you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that I have primped up my spring wardrobe), some decorations etc. But as the spring is, hopefully, coming soon I have since then changed a few things up like added light color accents and decorations. I am also developing my green thumb as I quite enjoy growing plants and just looking after them as they grow. My recent buy are three hyacinths in a pot - I am so curious to see the color in which they'll bloom :)

Šīs bildes tika uzņemtas janvāra beigās, kad mums laukā vēl valdīja salīdzinoši barga ziema, tāpēc arī dažbrīd dominē tumšās krāsas, piemēram, garderobē, jeb uz drēbju statīva (acīgākiem mana Instagram profila sekotāji būs jau pamanījuši, ka esmu "upgreidojusies" uz pavasara garderobi), kā arī istabas dekora elementos un aksesuāros. Bet tā kā pavasaris, cerams, tuvojas, tad pirms aptuveni nedēļas, istabā ieviesu svaigas vēsmas un izvēlējos dzīvespriecīgākus dekorus un krāsu akcentus. Ļoti lielu akcentu pašlaik lieku tieši uz dzīvajām puķēm podiņos - man ir tiešām prieks lolot un izbaudīt krāšņās krāsas, kurās tās uzzied.

  14. Lucky girl! Hehehe, this room looks fabulous. I've been dreaming of my own walk-in-robe slash home office and most of it contains parts from IKEA too. Can't wait to make that vision reality.

  15. Man arī laikam zils grīdas tonis nebūtu pirmā izvēle, bet jāsaka ka tas lieliski kontrastē un akcentē baltās mēbeles, ļoti patīk. Es jau pasteidzos pasūtīt no viena cita LV veikala kas piedāvā Ikea lietas- diemžēl cenas tomēr atšķiras no reālajām, bet nu labāk ka ir tāda iespēja tepat nopirkt, un nav nekur jābrauc - un tur ir tik daudz kā forša, ka man jau pagarš wishlists ir izveidojies, tā "aitādiņa" arī ir manā wishlistā :)
