Embracing the College-Style AestheticMay 2, 2009
My mom brought up a good question recently: What am I going to do about bedding while I’m in Florida? Okay, maybe not the most exciting question in the world for most people. But for me, the interior designer, a light bulb came on. I get a whole new apartment to decorate! (Okay, fine. My roommates can have some say…if they feel they must.) I’m generally the type of person who goes for the clean, sophisticated, put-together look, with a minimum of clutter. Like this:Pretty, huh? But I am actually looking forward to decorating my room with whatever momentos, pictures of my friends, raggedy quilts, etc. float my boat. It will be fun! It’s only for 4 months, and I don’t want to spend my time and efforts trying to make my room look pulled together when my roommate will probably be decorating her half with magazine cut-outs of Robert Pattinson. So, as the old adage goes, if you can’t beat ’em, why not join ’em?
This double sided poster from “New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”, Flight of the Conchords. The poster came with their CD, and the only problem I have with it is trying to decide which side I’ll have to turn to the wall! Originally I thought I liked the picture on the left, but the more I look at the trippy one with the frog, the more I like it. It’s a little bit like an I-Spy book on acid. This is an important decision, y’all! I need help! So let me know what you think in the comments section.
