Dorm Design

I would not necessarily call myself too savvy when it comes to decorating. My bedroom at home has been practically the same since I moved into it. But I get a bit more creative when I get to move into a new space. Upon returning back to campus I have a single bedroom all to myself, and I have to say I love it so far. I have these two giant windows that let in light during the day and the view looks out onto beautiful trees. The floors are a worn, dark wood, my closet is huge, and the ceilings are tall compared to last years attic room.


Well first of all, you know my last post? Above is all you need to add some design interest to your room. Just a bunch of pictures and some blue painters tape. You’ll see how I used the images in the pictures below!



Well, first look at my bed! With fluffy padding and tons of blankets its the most comfortable twin bed I have ever slept on. Plus it’s right by the window which I have always wanted, but with a roommate or the radiator being in the wrong place have never had.IMG_3319


And then, the desk area. This time around I think I am going to be utilizing my desk way more than I have in the past. (read: my desk in the past was more storage than desk) The right side the space functions as a vanity. The drawers contain toiletries, and everyday stuff like my hairbrush and blowdryer (sorry neighbors, yikes!) can chill on the side. I have no idea where the mirror came from, but I have used it every year, so I just propped it against the wall. Hanging off of the mirror is a cool wooden pipe I got while in Ecuador a couple years ago.

The lamp is in the middle with pencils and pens and my two little plastic busts of Debussy and Mozart I got from music school.

And then the left side of the desk is all serious business. Kept clear most of the time except for books and my computer–and the occasional coffee cup.



And more of the pictures, but here on the back of the door to my room. Just geometric, and slightly crooked.

So that was just a bit of my room, and examples of the images put into use in the space. I hope to blog more about college while I am here, since I have more semesters behind me than I have left. It would be great to look back at this in the future.
