Dungeon Dorm Room... Literally

(above image from: ZoeK3000)

Caves. Dungeons. Prisons. ...All too often dorm rooms are referred to under those terms. Yeah, cinder-block isn't all that cozy. Yeah, tile is awfully cold under your bare feet. Yeah, windows are often too small to let in the sun's lovely rays.

But get a load outta the dorm room! It's very reminiscent of a castle chamber, don't you think? This is a real dorm, but not of the American variety. It's actually a dorm in Turkey. But it may have some of you feeling suddenly grateful for your smooth cinder-block, chilly floors, and narrow windows. This place literally feels like a dungeon.

Even with its stone walls/floor/ceiling and lack of windows, I still think this "cave room" has some potential. Layering some oriental rugs on the floor, draping colorful tapestries over the walls, and bringing in some furniture with ornate flair could turn this drab dungeon into a chamber fit for a lady-in-waiting.

Or a big, black coffin, some bats, and velvet curtains could transform it into a swanky vampire's abode, no?

Happy Halloween!

Amore.
