I just love every detail of his dresser.. And because it’s an antique I wanted it to look that way once I refinished it. It’s done in rustoleum linen white and Annie Sloan coco.

Is there a love language having to do with decorating your daughters dorm room/suite each school year ? If there isn’t , there should be. With two daughters in college , I feel the responsibility to help them make their dorm room a reflection of my, i mean THEIR personality.
Weeks, sometimes, months, in advance, I gather linens, window panels, artwork, and lots of old picture frames. Lane Scott has always known exactly what she wants. Her freshman year she had a design sketched out and a story board with fabrics, textures and inspirational decor. She is an artist ya’ know. The last two years, she has moved herself and decorated her own dorm room. I saw a quick snapshot of one wall she had done last week and it was masterful. Primitive, lovely, un-complicated, clean, simple-lines. I loved it.
Libby, on the other hand, leaves the decor all up to me. Her only request this year she wanted to take her duvet cover from her bed at home. Okay. I can work with that.
Below are a few pictures we took this past Saturday. The drawer work complimentary of Haven’s organizational skills. The hunk in orange would be Scott. He is a wonderful command- hook-hanger-upper. The panels on the windows are hung on a tension rod. The same tension rod that came un-tensioned and whacked me in the head 3 days before and had me seeing stars. Most of the items in the room were from Restorology Vintage on Etsy. The Cardboard Deer Head Taxidermy was from Etsy shop HL Solutions, Chevron Duvet from Urban Outfitters, Bright-Stripe Pillow from IKEA. The rest of the items were thrifted, some were painted, some were left as is.
I also included a picture of the Living Area Libby shares with 5 other girls. Yes, they have a lot of seating. They like to have friends over to study. That’s what they told me anyway. I did a gallery wall with an homage to George Washington and Scrappy Wilson, the first dog running for President.
