When I saw these styleboards on IKEA.com, my thoughts zipped back to my campus days.
College was awesome in many ways, but the decor was definitely not one of them.
Lots of beech veneer and beige walls.
Rent was dirt cheap though, its only saving grace. I stayed in the dorm for a year before I moved to a rental off campus.
Here, take a peek at a similar dorm room from my alma mater.
Watch the video if you are in for a bit of decorating horror.
IKEA did not exist when I was in college. But even if it did, I wonder whether I would have styled up my dorm room extensively. I was a frugal student before frugality was in and absolutely clueless about DIYing and decorating.
But now, should a Freaky Friday thing happen between me and a college kid, you can be sure that I will exorcise the beige-bland-demon out of that dorm room. I love the Worldly Wanderer but my younger-self would have gone for the Word Nerd or maybe the Fashion Addict. Oh, so hard to decide.
