Just a Thought... Dorm Room tranformation begins

Hi all,

I just spent time at the 2014 Haven Conference last week and it was amazing. I met a lot of ridiculously talented bloggers and have so many ideas for my blog and my future that I can’t even share them yet. But watch out, there’s a change coming.  If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have seen some of the pictures from the Haven Conference.
Right now in my personal life, there are a lot of changes happening as well. The most important is the move to a college campus and dorm room apartment for my baby girl, Cass. So, I plan  to blog about some of  the diy projects that will help make her on campus apartment a home.

The starting point is her bedroom (each girl has her own bedroom) in this 4 bedroom, 2 bath apartment. This is a very modern on campus apartment with hardwood floors and granite counter tops! Boy oh boy, college life has really changed since , well never mine how long ago it was, let's just say, things have really changed!

Back to the bedroom. I saw this really cool comforter set at Marshalls and she liked it as well, so she is  going with grey, orange ( more a deep coral/orange) with touches of turquoise. Here’s what we are starting with.

                                                  5 piece comforter set and fleece throw                        

First up will be personalizing her orange throw ( less than $10 at Ross). Next will be adding a little something to  the grey polka dot box ( $5 at $5 Below)

                   1 of the pillows included in the set, the throw and a polka dot box for clutter control!

What do you think of this color scheme?

I'm thinking it was meant to be as I just happened to have both of these fabrics in my fabric stash just waiting to become throw pillows. 

And we're off... I'm thinking rugs and maybe curtains next!!



  1. LOVE the colors! That will be one stylish dorm room. And granite counters and hardwoods? What??
    It was great to meet you at Haven!

  2. Very pretty colors. My daughter has chosen pink, green and black.

  3. I like the colors your daughter chose. I guess you know I love bright colors.
