A few weeks ago I did a post called
I wanted to follow up and get 'real life' dorms from students on a budget and the creativity that ensues especially in rooms where there is barely enough room to turn around.
Molly- University of FL
Great use of space, raise the bed and use stackable containers for storage.
I love that Molly's roommate used the pink version of the same comforter.
This adorable bed skirt hides the storage underneath. Note the coordinating pillows.
Cute roman shade too! I think I see a decorator in the making!
J - Samford University
cute paisley bulletin board
All of the essentials!
Good storage technique...take a cubed book case and add baskets!
Check out the Chi Omega poster which reads:
A girl should always be two things,
Classy and Fabulous - Coco Chanel
right on, don't you think?
These roommies stayed with the same colors but added their own flare.
Storage shelf in front of the window between the two beds.
M got her dresser under the bed too along with other storage containers.
My son is a student but lives in an apartment, still his room is very small.
He did his own arrangement, proud of you buddy!
He painted his own artwork on the back wall.
See here about the color blocked canvas' above his low book shelf.
My niece Gabrielle is a student at the Fashion Institute of Art and Design in L.A.
She has a small apartment and has done a superb job in the use of small space.
Sorry the image is so dark, transferred from my iPhone.
She very smartly divided her living area to make a study space and a place to sew.
Love it Gab! ♥
A good organizing tip is to get these multi-purpose holders that attach to the rod in the closet. Use them for more than shoes!
I think these adult-kids did a great job, don't you?
My sweet bloggy friend Tamara of Nest by Tamara, a beautiful designer and writer is dedicating the month of September to kids in the home, stop by and be inspired!
