Going off to college can be kind of scary but creating a safe place to call home (temporarily) can make the transitions a wee bit better.
Having video viewing troubles? Click link below to watch my Dorm Room Segment on Great Day Houston. its pretty cute not gonna lie.
I mentor three girls (Carla, Zylah, Aaliyah) that are off in college..oh my word you would just love them; creative, smart, witty and beyond beautiful inside and out. Seriously I am a better human being knowing and loving these girls. They not only teach me but inspire me as well. Speaking of inspire that's just what they did for my latest Great Day Houston segment. How to personalize your dorm room base on their personality and style.
the girly girl (carla)
the jcrew/anthropologie girl.
girly. florals, monograms, and sparkles are her friend.
the bohemian (zylah)
the free people girl
anything quirky or out of the box, mix match bedding with a running theme.
the big city (aaliyah)
h&m/ anything designer
stripes, chevron patterns, and edge. bold statement pieces are a must!
Design in small spaces doesn't have to be hard or expensive; all you need is to know your style and be prepared to DIY! Check video for organization tips for makeup and jewelry.
Have fun with it.
And side note going off to college advise:
Take this time to get past all fears and be the person you've always wanted to be. In some way,s it's a fresh new start. Speaking from experience my "shy, couldn't order a meal on her own" sister became a decisive, determined, beautiful young woman when she went off to college by just making the decision to do it. You can do it.
