room part 2

More room inspiration, slightly random-er this time. I've posted a lot of these pictures before but they're worth sharing again. I don't totally know how all these will translate in the end but they've been running through my mind nonstop like the victim of a bad pick up line.
Nicole Levaque and Nicki Minaj shrine by Teen Witch, for the shrine-ness and celebrity worship and candles and flowers and Ouija.
Madge in Desperately Seeking Susan, the video for Lust for Life by Girls, unknown, and Brenda Walsh, for the pinkness and flowers and haziness.
Grace Miceli, unknown, Kelly Bundy, lyrics to Old Age by Hole in my journal, for the cosmic vibes, collaged pentacle, Kelly's shirt and the wood-paneled-ness of their house, and shiny stickers.
All unknown! Boooo. Cats, flowers, shady bedrooms, girlness, etc.
Album art: Violent Femmes self-titled for the little girl and vines, Totally Crushed Out! by that dog for the Sweet Valley High-ness, Live Through This by Hole for the paint and basement and CL's queenness, PJ Harvey's Man Size for the flower.
Cinnamonkite, Petra Collins, reba bean, and Jane Birkin, for the iconography and flowers.
T. Reilly Hodgson, and the rest unknowns, for the cacti, bleeding paint, dusty technicolor summer colors.
Joni Mitchell's Ladies of the Canyon and Missoni Fall 2011 for the tiny stories.
Unknown and Helmut Lang Spring 1997 by Robert Mapplethorpe, for the awkward happy braces and hearts.
Unknown, birthday roses via Arnsdorf's amazing scrapbook, and Tim Walker, for the flowers and tiny decorations.
Kamikaze Girls and Kat Bjelland on the cover of Flipside, for the tiny treats and vines and broken dollhouses.
Tomas Castelazo for the idea of flower-adorned pastel cemetery crosses, Hasisi Park for combined witchy vibes and Weetzie Bat's Hollywood, the video for Violet by Hole for the storyteller fairytale ballerina stills, and old Schiaparelli perfumes for the colors and potion-likeness and sun.

the nicki minaj shrine from teen witch is sick

Nedda Ebo said...

LOL @ the very first one. That's epic.
the flower undies remind me of this sketch i found once while surfing tumblr: http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l64y36LDGK1qzi0mno1_400.jpg
anyway, love all the cute random photos.

Maybe you should consider adding an alter in one of the corners. Candles are always a nice addition, especially the ones that smell like ice cream and lemon cupcakes. I enjoy the Wiccan vibes that you post sometimes - I think it adds a lot of character.

Where do you get these amazing pictures?

And I like shrines. I wish I was more compelled to make one. I want to be in your room more now!

Witch stuff is amazing, isn't it?

Also I realized I comment on all your posts....

SarahPeslar said...

I feel like you can do so much with this inspiration. Possibly so ecstatic post card creations? Or possibly some newly themed clothing?

The Nicki Minaj shrine is totally awesome, just saying. Same with the pink-lined coffin. I can't wait to see how your room turns out!

meagan said...

tavi you should check out any number of the botanicas in the city. candles and jesus and incense and rosaries and potions and everything youll ever need to bring your inspiration to life.

fashionablecelebs said...

Yay I love Ms Love.

Britte said...

Totally cool that you're into Grace Miceli's stuff. It's funny because I keep thinking about how it seems like you would really like Smith (were we both go to college... or went since Grace just graduated...)

Rachel said...

I am totally digging the shrines you posted. Feeling the urge to light massive amounts of candles and maybe have some dead flowers or something.

Mitchie said...

Your inspiration for the cacti... Yeah, I got that right next to my house.

Eleonore said...

have you seen "the crush" with alicia silverstone (she's like 14)? you'd love it. plus her room is all
vomitpink-horsebackriding-lauraashley vibes.

Kayla said...

this post OOZES with inspiration! I love the innocent darkness of all this. Makes me want to watch Virgin suicides and put flowers in my hair.

<3 You're truly an inspiration little miss.

I can't wait to see how this all translates.

Amy Creyer said...

I love the idea of tiny embellishments in a massive space, so that it takes several moments for the eyes and the brain to put everything together. The whole idea that nothing is as it seems.

MY NAME IS IRS..., IRS INITSUGA said...

Ohhh lalalax...the teen witch's shrine was absolutely wicked, in a cool way of course. I loved the serene effect there ('empty' space, light bulbs) seems occupied with somethin (err..try not sounds too occult here;p). The PJ Harvey photo there really addictive (her posse), and for the roses, i wish more of black...(wish for have one someday). Au freshh...!

I am really feeling the Desperately Seeking Susan vibes.

Jack W. said...

really liking the dusty technicolour scheme, and the ever-present courney vibes.The Religious iconography would probably creep me out in the middle of the night though, Desperately seeking susan is soooo fcool...

Lulu said...

I just moved so I seriously need to start thinking about decorating my room too ^^, so I really needed some inspiration, even though i'm trying to sail towards strong contrasts with white walls, matte blue chandeliers etc.. but thanks for this and a great blog :D

Takuka said...

Hi Tavi ! :D
I just wanted to tell you that I love your style, it is just beautiful !
And I'm in love with your wonderful blog ! *A*
It is really inspiring ! YOU are really inspiring !
Could you check out my blog and tell me what you think about it ?

The thing is that... it is in french ('cause I'm french)... :/
I will do a blog in english soon ! ^O^
Bye ~

zoomslow said...

Ahhh! So many pretty colours and shapes to lose oneself in – and I do! Serious inspiration <3

lyrics to Old Age by Hole in my journal = Great! Looks so good.

old Schiaparelli perfumes for the colors and potion-likeness and sun = I want to reach into the photo, pick them up and hug them.

Madge = :-)))

casualinleeds said...

hey tavi, i wondered if you had seen the video for denver - los adolescents
?

i thought you'd like it, especially if you like the lust for life vid. just youtube it, i think they're a chilean band.

These are all totally cohesive. What do you call this?? Romantic-death-punk-idolatry? There's got to be a word for it because you totally nail it. I love that pic of PJ Harvey.

LYDIA said...

I think this brings very good inspiration, not just for you Tavi, but for me also. I am really inspired by all the pictures you post, mostly the ones in this one. I admire them greatly, particularly the broken dollhouses and the collection for the iconography and flowers. Both, such a stunning collection of photos. Your really doing great Tavi, and I look up to you and your blog, a lot. XOX

whitemaskgirl said...

It is an interesting theme your going for. I love the girly witch wibes of this, seems really interesting.

hope505 said...

...very plastalgiac for me, Tavi...these "room inspiration" posts...
(plastic+nostalgiac = plastalgiac! *haha! ok.)

Also: it is terrifying to remember the time in my life when I lived in my Parents' house and had "a room"...*heeheehee! But when I lived there, then, I had nightmares about having to live on my own and take care of ADULT things...

You probably won't believe it, but comparing the two, this is way better.
wwwaaaayyyy better. (I'm speaking to you from the future.)

cancercowboy said...

interesting range of visual influences you posted here. i'm really in suspense how all this will pan out and manifest in your room. just don't cave in to perfectionism.
i still hope to see the day when image-displaying devices with the physical properties of plastic sheeting hit the market. changing the mood of a room as easily as changing your desktop wallpaper... oh the possibilities ^____^

Miran said...

i think the flowery teen witch idea is cool... u could make a butterfly farm like in bright star
the colors in the movie i think are really inspiring!

I want to see the finished result! You're obviously going to have a lot of tchotchkes, so what color are you planning on doing the walls to go with it all?

Mina Jade said...

This is a top favourite post these days. As for Nicki Minaj - I do prefer Kim, you know (except for the fur what she wears). How Happy I was to see Madonna, she is my sweetie, she was the lady whose photos made me realise that I AM a bi. And I love the cats - especially the black and white one that cuddles so lovingly.

Eve said...

Hey! Love your blog read it like everyday. I only found out about you recently so i'm catching up on the old posts while reading all the new ones that come through. Great inspiration for you room! I'm doing mine up. My parents made me go all minimal so now i'm adding colour!

Fi said...

I had my bedroom painted duck egg blue to match the cream coloured furniture. In my head, my bedroom was like the inside of the palace at Versaille. Needless to say I had/have a wild imagination.

Good luck with decorating yours.

Narita said...

Really nice! I'm getting a new curtain for my room but that's all, want to redo the whole thing but it's not big enough to make anything decent out of it I guess.

FairlyFarley said...

No one of the opposite gender will ever want to step foot into your room... maybe this is what you're going for?

lobsterleyla said...

More food for the soul. omnom.
My room is insanely girly and my fiancé (oh I love this word, doesn't roll out of the tongue as much as it elegantly walks out) spends a lot of time in it.

Taylor said...

I'm redoing my room this summer to, erasing all evidence that i was ever a child, I'm basing mine off of Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited, have you seen it, it has fantastic colors!

I love how much thought you put into re-decorating, I'm the same I recently did a post on my bedroom and some of the inspirations behind it!.I think you may have even reblogged one of the pictures on your tumblr, it was a picture of a pink phone on a bedside table with a Heathers poster above it.

This Undercover collection might be helpful inspiration: http://www.style.com/fashionshows/review/S2006RTW-UNDERCOV. It seems to go along with the rest of the stuff you posted. I think a Lady gaga shrine would be cool. Lovely inspiration exspecialy the Hasisi Park photo and perfume bottles.
