Dorm Room Makeover

Dell Computers recently held a national dorm makeover contest, and one of the winners goes to school here in Charlottesville. Because a computer company sponsored the makeover, the electronics were the main focus. She got pretty hooked up. But they also had a designer come makeover her space, and it got me thinking about how I would decorate a dorm.

In my college dorm room, I had a floor lamp that did double-duty as a coat rack (it was the first thing in the room, so I always tossed my jackets on it). I had a horribly uncomfortable and stiff desk chair, fluorescent lighting, and sticky notes all over the place. So I included little remedies to my personal dorm dilemmas in my design. Here's what I came up with:

I think I'd like to live here.
