Last week, when I happened upon these cute Cynthia Rowley lamps at TJ Maxx
I immediately thought, oooh, if I was still in high school, I would build a bedroom around those!
So I did.
So cute! I bet the 17 year old me would love this (though the real teenaged me did this. At least I committed, right?) This board was super fun. I grabbed a desk from my small-scale desk round up, bedding from my smokin sheets and shams selection, a side table from my awesome and affordable side table list, a side chair that I considered for this client, slipper chair I had considered for this client, and one of West Elm's new rustic-modern pieces for a dresser. (sources mostly here.)
What do you think: can you see a high school senior or college freshman digging it? You know, in that sweet spot right before they dye their hair black and go through a goth phase, or whatever.
Oh! Also. It has been twenty years since college, ten years since I met my husband, and seven years (today) since I married him. Seven years, and no itch.
