    and I want the alcoholic baby. CLASSY.

    This actually almost made me cry. It feels like THAT should be my home…

    I especially love #13!

    Please let me move in with you…?


  • marimba_girl December 12th, 2011 7:11 PM

    Lovely! Wish I lived in a shed. Or a cupboard under the stairs would do just as well.

    • moonchild December 12th, 2011 7:18 PM

      AH! Harry Potter reference! :o (love you harry! *always*)

  • tobiasfunkette December 12th, 2011 7:11 PM

    This is incredible. I want a room as interesting as this!

  • FashionHauties December 12th, 2011 7:23 PM

    These are great pictures. I wish I could move in there…
    I’ve always wanted my own “building” in my house. My friend Linnea has her own apartment section of her house with her own address that I’m so jealous of. I love how it is so FULL of everything, you know?
    I think I would collage photos like http://fashionhauties.blogspot.com/2011/11/vintage-on-way.html. I already have done that with magazine stuff, but it would look way cooler with photos.

  • fizzingwhizbees December 12th, 2011 7:26 PM

    This is amazing. The best part is the way she has dollars tacked up on her wall like they’re something exotic. (although I imagine the folks in Tanzania would say the same thing about the 500-shilling note with an elephant on it that I have on my bulletin board, haha)

  • darksideoftherainbow December 12th, 2011 7:31 PM

    this room is a total inspiration! i’m a little jell-o that you have your own shed haha. my room is small so i’m always looking for ways to add more to my walls so guess what…i’m stealing your shrine idea!

  • witch-season December 12th, 2011 7:45 PM

    I had a little (girl) crush on Eleanor H. before she started working with Rookie… Now it’s like a full-blown obessession! You should have like a How-to-be-Eleanor DIY Guide! (Eleanor should do one on her tumblr either way). Genious!

  • royal_futura December 12th, 2011 7:47 PM

    Living in a shed! That is so delightful. The first photo of the exterior reminded me of Pauline Parker’s shed/bedroom in Heavenly Creatures, one of my favorite movies, although her bedroom was definitely not as cozy as yours.

  • diny December 12th, 2011 7:50 PM

    seems like i can find literally everything in that room. and very very colorful!

  • Cloudy December 12th, 2011 7:56 PM

    :) magical

  • Adrienne December 12th, 2011 8:12 PM

    Your room is so amazing!! I love all of the posters. :) The whole atmosphere (and probably also the fact that it’s a shed) kind of reminds me of a girl gang clubhouse for some reason.. :D

  • Marguerite December 12th, 2011 8:15 PM


  • GagaMcQueen December 12th, 2011 8:22 PM

    It kind of reminds me of those “I Spy” books with a huge jumble of warmly colored barely recognizable objects…So COOL! And I love her outfit, too.

  • Dylan December 12th, 2011 8:32 PM

    YESSSS this makes me so happy, all of these room posts today, because decorating my new apartment is my reward for finishing this week of finals. These are just making me so much happier so I can MAKE IT THRRROUGH!

  • mwong1025 December 12th, 2011 8:38 PM

    THE HARRY POTTER BOOKS. I’m so jealous of her room that it cannot be describe in words. Jealous jealous jealous. There, I did it.


  • Marisa December 12th, 2011 9:14 PM

    This is spectacular! Want to move in…ahaha, does Annie have a blog or something of that sort? She seems like quite a cool girl

  • Amy Rose December 12th, 2011 10:52 PM

    yow, amazing.

  • Bren December 12th, 2011 11:44 PM

    Awesome! Showing this to my best friend, she has a room I am completely jealous of.

  • maggiemadge December 13th, 2011 12:12 AM

    I simply adore your room. I love how you color coordinated your books to the rainbow! It’s the littlest things that make it unique. I honestly feel depressed when a room is matchy- matchy and cookie- cutter.

  • back2thepast December 13th, 2011 12:15 AM

    She looks like Winona Ryder!!!! AAAGH i want this so bad. I’ve actually started on my closet from the previous post, then this came up and now i’m even happier. oh life is so wonderful. does rubber cement peel the paint off your walls??

  • Olivia December 13th, 2011 12:23 AM

    omg omg omg omg

  • Laia December 13th, 2011 1:04 AM

    what a dream!

  • December 13th, 2011 2:01 AM

    Marc Bolan! Oh man, I’m going to have to listen to “I Love To Boogie” right now :-)

  • Lucas December 13th, 2011 4:27 AM

    I also have my books organized by colors!

  • Maialuna December 13th, 2011 6:25 AM

    That comic you’re reading looks like you.

  • samhatt December 13th, 2011 6:56 AM

    room-envy!! it’s amazing! :D

  • shed_girl December 13th, 2011 8:08 AM

    Thank you so much for all the lovely comments! It’s so nice seeing my room being appreciated <3

    My blog is http://sexygreencardigan.tumblr.com/ for Marisa :)

  • aliceee December 13th, 2011 12:26 PM

    this is beyond cool!! reminds me of the kids’ book Lottie’s Cats, which is about a little girl who has a room in a shed like this but with a bunch of cats & it’s the greatest

  • julalondon December 13th, 2011 1:47 PM

    OMG this is actually the most wonderful room i’ve ever seen in my entire life… I found loads of inspiring things for my room..=) So lovely!

  • Maddy December 13th, 2011 3:27 PM

    That “in case of emergency” thing is amazing! I would probably put maybe a Sky bar there.

  • Marisa December 13th, 2011 4:43 PM

    or annie i suppose…
    following you! :)

  • MissKnowItAll December 13th, 2011 5:34 PM

    I’m in love with this room!!!

  • Flavia December 13th, 2011 5:39 PM


  • MissKnowItAll December 13th, 2011 7:15 PM

    I would totally do this except my room is literally the size of a closet. Woe is me

  • ladyjenna December 13th, 2011 7:19 PM

    That room is a masterpiece. By the way, love the dress and the color-coorditnated bookshelf!

  • Izzy December 14th, 2011 12:05 PM

    I knew this was going to be good from the first picture when I saw Harry Potter on the bookshelves.
    Oh, If only I had space for an armchair in my bedroom! Or a nest bed. Pity I can’t transform it into a four poster bed either, cos it would block off the window and my gigantic stupid wardrobe.

  • ruby December 14th, 2011 12:32 PM

    i love all the harry potters lined up on the bookshelf!

  • jeanette December 17th, 2011 4:16 PM

    Wow! I also organise my books by colour but Harry Potter ALWAYS stays in order because it’s its own rainbow <3

  • chubbynymph December 17th, 2011 7:45 PM

    oh this room is so lovely. i love it all!

  • Arario December 18th, 2011 7:38 AM

    I wanna live here!!

  • PlatformShoesBlog December 18th, 2011 8:38 AM

    I love everything in this room! i wish my room was like this, but it’s all open and spacious and boring!
    I also want to paint a mural on my bedroom wall!

  • Allison December 19th, 2011 7:20 PM

    Everyone’s rooms are always so wonderful! My room is full of such junk! Stuffed animals and my painting supplies…..I’m a disorganized mess.

  • Lulli December 22nd, 2011 12:14 PM

    please, may i move in with you?
    this room is amazing!

  • georginarr December 22nd, 2011 3:12 PM

    definitely using this as inspiration for my own bedroom! i’m so jealous of the fact it’s a shed as well!


  • Aria April 28th, 2012 6:05 PM

    This room is awesome indeed! I love the collages she has all over her walls, and the way the books are organized….genious!!! Let me move innnnn!
