Winnie is a sweet but simple character, with simple desires. One desire, actually: honey. His living space directly illustrates his thoughts. Notice that his room is practically empty. He is a "silly old bear," after all.
Anything in the room is a product of Pooh's obsession with and endless need for honey. Used honey pots are scattered across the floor. What holds his flowers? An empty honey pot. The bird that comes out of the cuckoo clock is instead a freaking Pooh bear emerging from a honey pot, the frame by his bed holds a picture of a honey bee--well, you get the picture. It is pretty clear to us what is always on Pooh's mind.
That Pooh has a full-scale mirror in his room suggests that he might be vain...Either that or he just checks on his obesity for health reasons every now and then ;)
