I know it's been a while since my last post, but there is a good reason for the delay. I've been moving in to COLLEGE!!!! That's right; I'm finally a student at Cornell University. I'm studying in the most amazing program: Fiber Science & Apparel Design. My concentration is in Management, and to give you an idea of what my semester is going to be like, these are my courses for my major: FSAD 1250: Art, Design, & Visual Thinking FSAD 1350: Fibers, Fabrics, & Finishes FSAD 1360: Fibers and Yarn Analysis FSAD 2310: Fashion Product Management Pretty insane, right? I'm actually so excited for classes to start because I can't wait to study something I'm so passionate about!!!! I've been working hard on decorating my dorm and making it absolutely perfect! For me, my dorm is more than a place to sleep and study. It's my home for the year, and for the first time, I have control over how my home is decorated! I took this process very seriously, and I'm so proud of the finished product:
The picture does not do my dorm justice at all. The lighting in here is absolutely TERRIBLE. But, I love my decor! I went with a navy and white color scheme and chose lavender and robin's egg as my accent colors. My bed set is from American Made Dorm & Home, and the amazing people at AMDorm gave me this beautiful headboard, which adds the perfect touch of style to my bed! As for my decorations, I incorporated a lot of different concepts that inspire me. From pictures of Audrey Hepburn to quotes from Iggy Azalea, my dorm has everything!
At first, I was really upset when I found out my walls were made of brick, but now I am so happy! I think they add a cool vibe that really contrasts the elegance of the rest of my dorm. It's like taking the decorations from Blair Waldorf's bedroom and putting them in Dan & Jenny Humphrey's Brooklyn apartment.
Decorating my dorm was quite a daunting task, but I am in love with how it looks now. Each piece means something special to me, whether it is a ballerina statue from my first dance recital, a mug from my best friend, or a quote that inspires me to succeed. I spent hours on AllPosters.com picking out the best artwork, and I spent days at Michael's picking out frames and flowers! It's so important to have a sanctuary to come back to after a stressful day of classes, and I couldn't be more excited about my dorm!!
