ROOM TOUR #MYgoldenspotofgainesville

ROOM TOUR #MYgoldenspotofgainesville

Welcome to #MYgoldenspotofgainesville! When I moved back to college, I wanted to create an atmosphere that inspires me. I wanted my room to be bright, airy, and dreamy so that I could come home to a place that made me feel refreshed and ready to live my dreams.

I created a video tour taking you through my room and to share where I purchased everything.

I hope you enjoy and find some inspo in #Mygoldenspotofgainesville!

The pink castle print that you see in the middle of my gallery wall is easily one of my favorite pieces in my room. My mom was actually part of the opening-cast of Disneyland Paris in 1992 and cut this print out of a newspaper. She's saved it all of these years and gave it to me a few months ago. I fell in love when I first saw it and knew I wanted to make it a focal point in my space.

Welcome to my room!

While I was preparing to embark on my college career, one of my favorite things to do was find room inspiration through various media outlets.

Since I was able to find inspiration from other people, now is the time for me to return the favor. Here you'll find some photographs and a few tips that really helped me put everything together. 

I definitely believe having a place that you like to come home to in college is vital to a smoother transition and creating an overall positive experience. With that said, I hope you enjoy and find some inspiration in #Mygoldenspotofgainesville!

TIPS:

  • Plan ahead! Start gathering inspiration as soon as you can, that way you will be less flustered and you will have less impulse purchases. 
  • Get crafty! Don't be afraid to pull out that glue gun. The more things you make by hand, the better. 
  • Green is the new black! Channel your inner green thumb and add some succulents or air plants to add a fresher feel to your space.
  • Keep coffee in arms reach! If you're like me, coffee is a must in the morning. Keep it nearby or if you are not able to have a coffee maker in your dorm, stock up on some chocolate covered espresso beans. 
  • Be you! Getting inspiration from other people is great, however, you should make your space YOUR space. This is where YOU will be spending your time and making memories.
