I painted my bedroom in Berhr's Tangerine Dream. It works well in low-lighting (feels warm and cozy, but might be too overwhelming with strong lighting).

The dowel rod is hanging on invisible fishing wire (gives the illusion that the drapery is floating). For those asking about the bed, it's a platform bed from West Elm and the headboard I got separately at a second hand shop (I'm all about affordable finds).

I live in south Riverdale (near Manhattan College). Kingsbridge is also nice as well as Sedwick ave (don't know much about other areas). If you're looking to rent now it's a good time, you get a lot of space for your money and it's only 35 minutes to the city on subway.

Pictures 2 and 3 of the living room are a bit different, I have two small dogs and had to trash the Flokati rug (the third picture is what the space looks like now). Same sofa, different pillows (and the angle is different). These two photos were taken a few months apart, I guess I didn't realize this when I submitted the photos to the site.

Hello everyone, thanks for your comments! To respond to Chalaundrai, the daybed is a 1950's Baker daybed I got at a shrift shop and restored it to it's original look. The bed-sheets/window treatments I designed myself and had a friend do the construction and sewing (I love asian style). The main bed is from West Elm (got the headboard separately, since I wanted something unique). Just in case, I'm not an interior designer, just love decorating for fun.
