Ellen Richardson, a graphic designer and Pleasant Plains resident, recently took her Craigslist hunting skills to the next level with the launch of her blog, Listed District. Listed District offers daily DC Craigslist findings of everything from Mid-Century and Industrial furniture, to bikes and the utterly strange.  Every week Ellen is going to share a roundup of some Phenomenal Finds with PoPville.

I’m gonna do the whole bedroom in camel color – it’s an old lady color.
-Amy Sedaris

Decorating or furnishing one’s bedroom seems somehow different than decorating the living room. My bedroom is rarely seen by guests, so it’s become this black hole depository for pretty much all of my extra ‘stuff.’ The bed is rarely made, shelves overflowing with everything I’ve needed to quickly hide before aforementioned guests arrive. It’s a more personal space, and, even at its messiest, it’s a space where I feel completely comfortable. I suppose that’s why I agonized way more over the bedroom paint color than I did over the living room color…statistics say that we spend at least a third of our lives in the bedroom, so we might as well be comfortable! With very little effort, and a few key pieces, your bedroom can be your oasis.

Check out today’s Listed District finds for some ideas on how to update, or get started on your bedroom furnishings. Happy Hunting!
