dorm room design

lots of design bloggers are posting their takes on a fun dorm room design today.  here's mine (which is based loosely on the bigger than reasonably sized bjork poster that stuck with me through college)
dormroom
bedding is delias, parson desk and side table from west elm, cheetah flor tiles from flor, chevron frame and foo dogs from furbish, mirror from zgallerie, dresser from ikea, pouf and desk chair from west elm, bowls from urban outfitters, harajuku lovers notebooks from target

duogram?

i'm a sucker for a big ole monogram, which is why i'm dropping off our duvet at the local monogram store to get mearesed up this week.  but i'm wondering, isn't it a little... unfair... to put my monogram smack in the middle of the bed?

returned

i have not been abducted. but i have done a wedding ni nyc, and a wedding at the beach, and now. NOW! i am home. and my bag is unpacked.

nyc was a blast - all of our friends were in town for the festivities. we saw the evolution of women exhibit at the met (what happened after the 30s - just straight to gaga?), the crazy bamboo on the roof, walked around highline park (i loved the stained windows that were colors from the hudson),

and had pose offs with subway and bus posters (brian won, clearly)

the wedding at wrightsville beach was equally fun. the bridesmaids gifts were cute monogrammed towels, and a goodie bag with our favorite snack and cocktail and a funny card.
