It seems like it was yesterday that I was getting all packed up for a magical place called college. I was so excited for a fresh start in a new state, with new people, and a new (very tiny) dorm room to make my own. While we go to college to walk away with a piece of paper called a diploma, it was the people that I met, the experiences that I had, and being pushed outside of my comfort zone that really made me who I am today. One of my favorite decorative pieces from my teeny tiny room in my sorority house, that I shared with one of my best friends, was a faux fur black rug which we called “the Rug” – very descriptive I know. This rug turned out to be more than just a stylish element that really brought the room together (sarcasm…but at the time it was really cool). The Rug turned into a hangout spot for many and hosted interesting conversations, movie nights, dance parties, and even doubled as a bed – mostly for me after too many cups of jungle juice…Don’t eat the fruit! I have so many good times and memories centered around that one furry black textile.
With school back in session and many of you going off to your first year of college, have some fun when it comes to decorating your dorm room, apartment, sorority room…what have you. Make it a welcoming place to others. Find your “Rug,” build some wonderful memories of your own…and dispose of it after you graduate
If I were going back to college today and had to decorate my room all over again, this fun boho-inspired look is what I would go with. I immediately saw that awesome gold bean bag chair from Bean Bag Boss and knew it would be my modern day “Rug” because who wouldn’t want to skip statistics class to sit on that thing? And that colorful aztec rug from Urban Outfitters is one of my favorite finds when it comes to adding some personality to a small space. Find your “Rug,” and in the name of college football – Go Ducks!
