The New Room

I've been eager to show you all bits of my dorm room ever since I started moving in, and I think it is finally in a good place to begin showing glimpses of it! Decorating and designing how I want my work + living spaces to look is something I adore doing so the process has been a long but extremely worthwhile one. Another great thing about living with Rachael is that we (obviously) have a lot of similarities and this overlaps with our aesthetic styles. I feel like that contributes greatly to the success of our dorm room -- our interests are clear in our decorating but they are styles that work well with each other's.

The kickstarter to taking these photos in particular is that we finally got a couch !!! A beautiful burnt orange/red baby that I found on Craigslist and then went forward and bought two days later. It's perfect.   In fact, I'm sitting on it right now. I can't wait for cozy nights full of tea and reading, good talks and good music on this couch. As for the rest of the room, I think it will be a constant work of art for Rachael and I. But that's certainly something I'm fine with.  :) xx

  3. Everything about this room is perfect. Small cozy rooms are the best. They become like... these little nests of creativity. I love designing and decorating my bedroom since I feel like I spend the most time there and the most creativity springs up from that room. This looks like a dreamer's paradise!

  6. This is gorgeous! I still live at home but I'll be moving into a dorm at the end of the year and wow, I hope I can get it looking half as inspiring and representative of myself as you have.


  7. Oh my gosh, your dorm room is so DREAMY! I especially love all the things pinned on your wall and that Dia de los Muertos-esque pillow. Love love love. I've been trying to cover my walls in art and prints and all sorts of things as the years progressed--I hope to have a cool space like yours one day!
