Making My Apartment My Own, When I moved in it was a typical apartment and I had typical 20 year old college furniture. White walls and Ikea everywhere. I spent a month or so designing the entire space on a 3D program, making changes, getting inspiration everywhere I could find some. Many of my furniture I found on Craigslist for a bargain and it was either painted or otherwise refurbished to fit my space. 

When I moved in the space where my book case exists was just an empty recess in the wall. Obviously I had to build a bookshelf in there.

I installed the picture frame molding myself and swapped all of the light fixtures and wall fixtures.

The light above the dining table was a CL find. I painted it black, extended the chain, omitted the shades and crystals.

The china cabinet was a $100 CL find. Built by the original owner's grandfather. I painted it white with a grey back on the interior to offset white china.

The fireplace was a $50 CL find I painted it white, added a wood medallion, and built an enclosure on the back so the fireplace would not be open to the wall making it a little more realistic.

The mirror above the couch is a beautiful mercury glass mirror from around 1900. My dad found it in an estate he bought. He painted it white and gave it to me as a gift. 

Couch, rug, dining set, side tables, and accent chair are new., Living Rooms Design
Small dorm room storage challenged!!, The dorm room in these pictures is located in a dorm that was built in the 1930s.  The size of the room is 12ft x 13ft about 169 square feet. It only had room for one of the desks the school provides. The challenge was creating an environment where the girls would each have a desk, storage room and some space to relax.  With some very careful planning we were able to get it all in! I have included both before and after pictures to give you an idea.  The comments from passersby at the beginning were wow you have a small room ... by the end they were wow your room is so big!!  Funny how space planning can make such a difference!, Dorm Rooms Design

E's Man Space, I designed this space for my 11 year-old son in the hope that it would see him through college. He loved it so much he promised to keep his room clean forever. That lasted about a week, but it's still a favorite among him and his friends., Boys' Rooms Design
Contemporary College Dorm Remodel, This is my single in my on campus apartment. I really wanted to make my room into somewhere that I could come back to after a really stressful day and just relax. 

It is hard to get things to look the way I want since I have to use the furniture they give me, and I'm not allowed to put nails in the walls so everything has to be done with push pins. But I did my best!

*I just did some "remodeling" so the updated pictures are up first, then all the old ones say (OLD) so you know which ones are current*, Dorm Rooms Design
