Let’s face it. Dorm rooms, in their most purest form, are blah. They’re small, typically have no architectural character and often contain drab, uninspiring furniture. Admittedly for me, dorm decor wasn’t on the top of my to-do list when I drove off to college, car stuffed to the roof with my entire life’s possessions. At the same time, had I known, with just a few key items, my living quarters could have look like the photo above, I might have done some strategic shopping before zooming off to San Diego. Eh, you live you learn; moreover, and referencing back to my English Lit. class, “This is the highest wisdom that I own; freedom and life are earned by those alone who conquer them each day anew.” – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe. Take note of today’s “Room of the Day” where flair is the key to receiving an “A” in dorm decor.
