In just a few short months, my sophomore year of college will begin and with that I can say goodbye to dorms-I’m moving up to an apartment!
In my college city, apartments and houses are ridiculously cheaper than any dorm or student housing. On top of having my own kitchen or bathroom, I’ll be getting my own room for the first time in my life. You heard me. For the. First. Time.
See, I’ve shared a room since I was practically born-what with my sister back home and then my college roommate. It’s been a rough, crowded life dear readers but no more!
I am eagerly awaiting my move in date and I’m using these summer months to prepare and plan for independent living. The living room and kitchen will be a shared space with my new roomie, styledbysteph96 (go and say hi!). For my own bedroom though, most of my inspiration is coming from Pinterest or other bloggers.
My color scheme is kind of all over the place. I am loving the coral and pink shades in this living room, but I am also attracted to more minimal styles as well.
Blogger Homemade by Carmona has an interesting take on the black and white look, with pops of mustard and gold. I love the gallery wall and will definitely need one of my own.
This wall makes use of a crowded space but doesn’t appear cluttered or overwhelming. I’m loving the bright orange and other colors, but the muted neutrals like the gray blanket and black frames keep it down to earth.
What do you think? Should I take a budgeted approach and go for minimal or shoot for the stars and attack with color? I’m thinking of a combination effort, like the above gallery wall. Expect to see some DIY’s soon! I would love to hear your opinions, how have you styled your room?
