I’ve decided for Such Great Room that it doesn’t have to be a high school student. I’ve had so many college students contact me that I thought we all can get inspiration from them too. Still looking for more high school rooms though!
Anyways…Blythe just graduated college and has a super cool room she wanted to share. One of my favorite things in her room is how she has hung up all of her dresses on the back of her closet door. Genius! Easy access to grab a dress in the morning and prevents them all from slipping off the hangers!
Here’s some more about Blythe’s room.
What was the inspiration for your room?
My mom has always collected antiques and growing up I loved how they all looked and felt. They were lived in, they’d known other families than mine. I liked the idea of these things belonging to me and to many people before me. Oh, and I also loved to smell old books. When I was moving out and deciding what look I wanted to go for, naturally, I chose the antique-y style. Everything in my room has a story.
What is your favorite item in your room?
I don’t know if I can choose! Well, I’ll try and narrow it to three. I LOVE my mirror because it’s ancient and so beautiful and it was oh so cheap! I didn’t think things like it existed anymore. I also have to choose my diploma because 1. my dad would yell at me because it’s a very expensive piece of paper and 2. I worked hard for that thing! My final favorite item is my Santa Clause snow globe. My grandpa passed away when I was 10 and that was the last present he ever gave to me. I even took it with me to college.
Tell us some unique things about your room.
I have an old jewelry box, but it doesn’t really look like one. It looks like a little, old house with flowers everywhere. It was my great-grandmothers, one of the items she brought with her from Russia. There’s also a little ballerina that still dances when you lift the lid. Also, the print of the entrance to old Rome. When I bought it at the flee market, this is super lame, but I thought that maybe it would have a treasure map or something cool behind it so I took it all apart. Only it doesn’t have a treasure map behind it and now I can’t get it to stay together.
What’s the best memory you have in your room?
One of my fondest memories happened before I even moved in. I really wanted to paint the space and decided on a lovely shade of blue. I recruited my boyfriend to help me and, well, I’m not the best painter. I got a lot of paint on myself and a little on him. But we listened to some great jams and worked together to get it all done and it looks so good now!
