What Houzz contributors are saying:
Respect personal space and belongings. Do not go into a housemate's room when they are not home, and do not use or borrow anything of theirs without asking first. If you share a bedroom, don't sit on or put stuff on your roommate's bed. And if you do borrow something (with permission) and it gets stained or damaged, it is your responsibility to have it cleaned, repaired or replaced promptly!If your roommate has been taking your stuff without asking, have a conversation with her about it as soon as possible. She may have just assumed it was OK with you, so be clear about how and what you are willing (or not willing) to share. And be honest: If you regularly borrow your roomie's shoes, don't get your feathers in a ruffle when she borrows your sweater.
Exposed brick and a wall Botha built add texture to the bedroom. The horizontal support beams in the wall double as shelves.Bedding: Fab India
What Houzzers are commenting on:
During renovation, instead of re-painting an exposed brick wall, why not leave it exposed? The brick gels with almost all kind of interior settings and can be used in any area of the building. Top it up with a piece of art or a family collage, it will distinguishes itself better than any customary painted wall.
