You may be asking yourself, “Why are you talking about redecorating? This isn’t HGTV!” I’ve decided to catalogue the whole process of redecorating my room because naturally there is a geeky motivation behind it.
I moved home from San Francisco 8 months ago. If you were to go into my bedroom right now, you’d think I just moved in yesterday. Yes, it is that bad and yes, I am that lazy. Before I moved back I already had an idea of what I wanted to do. I was going to do what every geek wants to: turn their living space into the fictional world they love. Specifically for me, I want to make my bedroom look like something out of a Christopher Nolan movie.
Yes, that’s right. I’m Nolanizing my room.
When I moved back in January I was very motivated. I was going to paint stores and buying dozens of samples of paint. I even painted a lot of sections on my wall to test the samples:
Life got in the way though, and for a while I had to put this project on the side. After a few weeks, these random bits of color became a sock on the mantel to me, and I had put this project so far on the back burner that I had almost forgotten about it. One day I woke up and all of these samples of paint practically smacked me in the face and said, “Hey! It’s been 8 months, DO SOMETHING ALREADY!”
