This corner single dorm room at Iowa State University was the first place that I truly lived "on my own." I loved the extra square footage, but it turned out that corner rooms in these old buildings got very drafty in the late fall. I ended up moving to a smaller, cozier room with a bigger window (and closet) later in the semester, but I remember this colorful space fondly.
Each room came with a black futon. My color scheme was pretty much non-existent. I played on the black by throwing in bright colors like turquoise, hot pink, orange, and yellow.
I've never been one to shy away from the bright, bold colors.
My desk space was a little cramped. For me, corner desks always end up with a bunch of wasted space at the back of that corner.
Using scrapbook double-sided tape squares, I lined my wall with colorfully patterned scrapbooking paper. I could never quite figure out how to make the most of that oddly place mirror, though.
