Every semester, all of the girls that live in our house (I’m an Alpha Phi) have the chance to move rooms and live with different people. My sophomore year I moved rooms, and even though it was nice to have a change of scenery…it was a pretty big hassle. So last year and this year…I never moved. At semester we were starting to get tired of our room set up though, so we decided to go ahead and try to change up the room a bit, and get creative. It took a few days to get everything moved to the place where we wanted it, but in the end, it was a great change for all of us. You can check out what it used to look like if you’re interested….but here is what we came up with!
We wanted to have an entire area devoted to just hanging out – so we moved our futon into the corner, made a little window seat with our cubes, and got rid of the coffee table.
My absolute favorite parts of the room are the little clusters of decorating that we have. Since we all have such different style, it was hard to make the room look unified and still reflect us…but I think we found the absolute perfect balance. Here we have some of my crafts, paired with my roommate Katie’s painting of Prince…which is absolutely amazing. I also love that Prince watches over our futon day after day….
We had another little area that needed some sprucing up…so we pulled together some crafts I made, a cute lamp of Katie’s, and some of Brooke and Lauren’s Alpha Phi frames. Even though I’m not the biggest fan of pink…I still love this corner.
The hardest part for us while moving around our room was finding a good place for our desks. We ended up with two beside each other (Lauren and I), Brooke on the other side of the room, and Katie in the corner by Brooke. Here is the area around Lauren and my desks…it gets kind of busy sometimes – but we still love it!
And here is the view of the side of our room with the futon, our desks, and everything. All this talking about decorating just makes me want to decorate it all over again….or maybe I’ll wait until I get my own house.
