Doesn’t it seem like every design blog out there tells you to follow the same trends? One year you’re told to paint your walls in colors of cream and eggshell. If you were feeling a little frisky, you could even paint the walls a mustard yellow. Fancy. Just a few years ago we were told to do this very thing! Even our furniture was supposed to be in neutral tones so that every fixture and furnishing had its own specific place in the room. But isn’t that a little boring? Shouldn’t our rooms inspire us? Any time I have to sit in all-beige space I feel like I’m stuck in some sort of generic multi-purpose room that’s about to host an even more boring meeting about the benefits of wetting instead of licking stamps.This year’s design trends are telling us to go bold with pattern and color. We’re being told that mixing and matching wood and metallic finishes will set our spaces apart. But you know what? We don’t have to follow every guideline or style blog. Isn’t the point of having our own space (not just for shelter) to decorate it as we please? Just look out in the streets: we all have our own styles. Sure, some of those styles blend, but for the most part, everyone adds their own special flair. We can do this in our homes, too. Design is about breaking the mold. We aren’t required to strictly follow what so-and-so interior decorator said about design trends in 2010 or 2016, we can mix match styles and aesthetics from any list. We can paint our walls in our favorite color. We can sit in our Calligaris Bloom Chair regularly and still use it as a statement piece in the room. We can design our space any way we want.
For me, college was such a fun and exciting time. Going off to be on my own for the very first time as a young adult was also frightening and intimidating. I worked hard all through high school to get to this point, but what I failed to understand was just how different, let alone expensive, college would be. From tuition, books, to everyday meals and housing, it was like a small fortunate from day one. One thing I am teaching my daughter is that you can still go to college, have all of the things you need, but you can still create and make your dorm environment fun, colorful and your own unique style, all while on a budget.
