College. Something you've all heard me talk about way too much this summer. Today's 10 Things I Love is all about a college dorm room, and everything that I love about it. I'm so excited to be staying in a tiny room. I love clutter, and darkness, and cramped spaces. I have no idea why, but I do.
When picturing my dorm room, these pictures (found on pinterest) were my inspiration. Thank Heavens my roommate has similar taste in decorating as me. I love having images and posters all over the wall. And isn't that Beatles poster awesome? Also, Christmas lights set an awesome tone for bedrooms. That's my opinion.
Half of the stuff I have for my dorm room right now is stuff that I've made myself. The plastic drawers, bulletin boards, wall decor. I think it helps give so much personality to the incredibly dull room you have to live in for 10 months. I plan on making all of these projects. Well, I'm trying to convince my dad into making the pencil holder for me, but seriously? How cool is that? You can see these projects here, here, & here.
Some things you just cant make, right? I keep telling myself that. In reality, I just don't want to get up off the couch and make them. But that's okay! Because why make something you can buy...? Yeah, I know. I'm just being lazy. Oh well. If I can't get my dad to make me a pencil holder, I'm buying these awesome bulletin ones. That's just a brilliant idea and I should hug whoever came up with it. I also love pillows... like a lot. This tribal-aztec print pillow is beautiful and I don't care if it doesn't match any of my bedding. And who doesn't love maps... and lamps? Now put them together? Smart, right? And a feather mobile? I'm going crazy over here. I think that would be easier to make than I'm anticipating. But I could never make it look that good. See these here, here, here, & here.
