Recently, one of my readers contacted me about doing a post on dorm room design. Tenia, who has a daughter headed to college, was looking for inspiration and organized a day where several design bloggers would create inspiration boards centered around a dorm room.
I’m pretty sure if Tenia had seen my dorm room, back in the day, she wouldn’t have asked me to participate. I wish a I had a picture to share (I’m sure you could use the laugh). It consisted of a hunter green and white striped comforter (K-Mart), matching pillows/towels/etc. in burgandy, and the focal point was a poster of Miss Piggy (yeah, I have no idea).
Being that I remember dorm rooms as dull, dark, and a little depressing, I went bright and happy with my design plan:
- Polarvide Throw in Green from IKEA (folded on end of bed for color)
- Bulletin Board covered in “Emilio, Lemon Drop” fabric from Tonic Living
