Nice colours!

I'm aiming for browns and naturals in my bedroom, btu I cant afford any paint right now, so I have brown and cream bedding, some cream and brown cushions, a cream leather desk chair, and green and orange walls :bonkers:

thanks!

well mine is mismatched also,it came with the white walls and a green carpet(and then i got black/gold trimmed bedding with mirrors and brown/cream/bedstuff...). its an apartment so there're like 2.5 feet in each direction that arent visible in the picture, its a very small room. my bed is like 85 percent of it ha. ii think im gonna leave it alone though since i rent and not own.

Thanks! The blanket gives that effect I think.

That clock would match well with your colour scheme. I got that clock for Christmas, I still have my old Simpsons one, it flashes on the hour or constant, its has a picture of Moe the bartender and it says "Its Duff time at Moes, Springfield USA". That one will probably find itself a new home in my room at my dads, which sucks compared to this one!

hey thats simpsons clock sounds pretty cool,

i never had excess money growing up, so i only had old $2 yard sale alarm clocks etc. not that theres anything wrong with that, they served me better than any nice wall clock or cartoon themed clock would have. now i use my cell as an alarm, and im a bit too old for cool simpsons clocks, ive also recently gotten into watches, ive got 2 in my collection so far haha, but i plan to expand.

Yeah, it was quite nice, it currently resides in a drawer!

My mother works in a DIY/Home Improvement type store, so I always got the really cool ex demo stuff, like the lamp to the right of the chair in the picture of my room cost only 2! I had to fit a plug to it when she brought it home because it had been wired to one big setup on the display, but it works great.

The Simpsons clock was a Christmas present a few years back now IIRC.

I have a nice (for me anyway) silver and gold plated Sekonda watch that goes with my signate ring and my gold neck chain, and a stainless steel Ben Sherman one that got ruined last year when I was helping my dad change the radiator on our old Rover, although I cant complain it only cost me 12, and it still works, I wear it when I'm painting.

Nothin' like new shoes. I just bought a new pair of platforms on ebay recently and I'm waiting for them to show up.

That was the NICEST thing I could say!

If you're going to wear them, make sure you get a wide white belt.

What the hell, go for the complete Herb Tarlek look (from WKRP in Cincinnati):

They look just like cousin Eddie's shoes from Christmas Vacation. The scene when him and Clark are drinking eggnog together in the living room. White v-neck see-through sweater over the top of a kelly green dickie, kelly green slacks... and THOSE SHOES!

Classic:o
