I recently moved to the upstairs loft in our house, but the room (while large and spacious) is a little drab. The walls are a faded pale yellow, and the curtains are mismatched. The floor is wooden, but painted a blue/gray color, and the trim and railing above the stairs is a smudged up white. I want to revamp the room entirely, but I don't know how to stay classy and cute while spending as little money as possible. In addition to the loft, there's a small "nook" space, which was built out of part of the attic. It's got enough room for a queen sized air mattress on the floor (which is what my boyfriend and I sleep on), but the ceilings are a bit too short to stand up in. I'd love to make it a sleeping area, but I don't know how to transform it to make it look nice in such a tiny area.
As far as colors, I love purple, but I don't want the room to look childish. I'm a big fan of vintage looks, and I have a daybed in the main loft area which I'd love to do up as a "couch." I just need some cute (and cheap) ideas to get started.
I'm a 21 year old female, if that makes a difference in your opinions. I used to live in this bedroom when my sister and I were little kids, and it still has a very childish feeling to it. I need a more adult room (especially if my boyfriend is going to be here a lot.)
