Well, this one happened to be my kid. You see, my wife and I just moved our daughter into her very first dorm room at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Of course, prior to this I insisted upon drawing the floor plan of her meager chamber so we could scheme and debate (and debate and debate- she inherited her father’s headstrong adamant nature) so that we could know in advance how to cram her life stylishly into a new abode. Luckily, she had met her new roommate in advance (a lovely young lady from Northern California) so coordination between the two new friends ensued months prior to actual move in. I taught her how to photoshop mood boards so we could marry the two youngster’s styles and tastes. I was even reluctantly introduced to myriad dorm Pinterest pages (who knew such things existed?).
After many, many, many visits to the Bed, Baths, Urban Archeologies, Container Stores, Ikeas and Beyond of the major Dallas metropolitan area, both my teen clients seem to be happy with their new realm. Over the years, I’ve done many homes but none has made me happier and more fulfilled than the new chic launching pad of this special little girl.
She may be out of our nest but I was elated to help her feather her a new one.
