Not going to lie, a lot of planning went into the looks of my freshman dorm. Also not going to lie, I photoshopped a hole (from the previous residents) out of my wall when editing these photos - living my best college life! It's actually incredibly hard to photograph a dorm room, but here's my best attempt. These photos were taken during my first few days at school; since, many things have been rearranged, things have been added. And by things, I mean a MET pamphlet, an astrology postcard, a book written in French and a cup from Cha Cha Matcha (plastic cups work great as make-shift amplifiers). Oh, a TV sits upon a few plastic milk crates stacked up.
Contrary to popular belief, it's actually not too difficult to keep a clean dorm room during college. I've gotten into the habit of making my bed every morning - literally, it works wonders. That and the fact that I've learned how to keep my clothes in my closet rather than on the ground have made a bigggggg difference. Not to say I won't regress the second I get home, but hey, all good for now.
My sheets, pillow, wire grid, and circle print are from Urban Outfitters, large grey blanket is from Target, triangle shelves are from Tyler Kingston Wood Company, the air planter is from Elizabeth Benotti, the pendant light is from some Scandinavian company (buy an American pendant light so you don't have to convert it to a normal plug-in), my mirror is from CB2. Most of the other prints and images are made by me or personal photographs.
College is hard. It feels like a constant free-fall. One of my teachers led us in a group-meditation today. Win.
