My first born has just begun his freshman year in college while my daughter has moved up (or down depending which way you see it) to freshman status.
I love looking at the sweet pictures of a newborn and reading about the joys and experiences new moms are facing today. I am a bit bummed thought as I've noticed a trend....not many moms of my age or with high school and college age kids blog as much or at all.
This summer I needed examples of how to decorate a guys dorm room. I perused Google, Pinterest, Facebook, Instragram...you name it. I literally found a gazillion ideas to decorate for a girls dorm but nothing for a guy unless it was from a Pottery Barn Dorm catalog. Honestly, that is not reality. While I love PB everything, I don't know anyone whose room or house is decorated like that. Now, don't hate on me. I would absolutely love for my house to look like any one of their catalogs, but I do not have that kind of cash!
So with all that said, I wanted to show off how my boys dorm room turned out. It still needs more decor for the walls -- we were worried we had over packed! Maybe this will help a mom in the future when she is searching for decorating ideas.
|Founders Dorm, University of Arkansas|
|So excited to be in a dorm that is only 2 years old!|
|The challenge begins!|
|Little sisters pitching in!|
|Still need to work on those bare walls!|
|Probably could use a rug in this area.|
|This wall could use a little decor as well.|
|This is the best configuration for a room long and narrow.|
The guys have two comfortable chairs that can be unfolded
and placed in the middle of the room to watch TV or play XBox.
|Not sure these faces show the excitement of now being in charge|
of their own laundry and clean up!
|Matching bedding automatically loses the man card.|
Color coordination is ok though.
