Back to School... Maybe?

Is it really that time again? It's hard to wrap my head around the notion of school, especially right now. That said, I feel the more comfortable our surroundings are the better for the mind and body.

Now, I'm sure college dorm rooms will have some significant changes or not even be a factor in collegiate life this year and possibly next (welp), but I wanted to offer a cool design style idea just incase someone needed it.

I had my oldest daughter in mind when I designed this room. She's currently 10, soon to be 11, but going on 25. She's much wiser that her age suggests and has developed a more sophisticated style rather early on. She likes her area to be clean and uncluttered, to a point. Let's be real for a second, she's 10 and can be quite messy, like most kids her age, but for the most part she's pretty tidy as long as she has proper storage abilities which she'll remond from time to time that she needs more.

I tried to picture her sitting at her desk writing away, plotting her strategy for attacking her latest assignment.

She currently has a similar set up in her bedroom so I figured I would stay with a similar formula but update it to something aimed at the college age individual.

Assuming she wouldn't have a roommate I designed the space as if it were a single occupant room. Again, this is with my daughter in mind and she's a bit of an introvert so the idea of sharing a space with a stranger might throw her into a tizzy.
