You won't believe it either

Be prepared for the most amazing before and after of a girls dorm room.  Before I start let me say that I did buy my girls new comforters and desk supplies for their dorm rooms.  Plus one of those super cute little refrigerators and a new umbrella.

 This Mom went over the top for her youngest daughter's dorm room.  The older daughter, Shelbi,  helped shop and set everything up, she cheered with one of my twins.  Thought you would want to know the connections, because I feel really special that I know them.  One, they are great people and two, they are great designers.  Shelbi said I had to give her Mom all the credit.  But they both have the eye for design, like mother like daughter is so true here. 

Just take a look...


AFTER - yes I had to take a double take too.  I think the ceiling was the only thing they didn't change.

faux brick walls, doors, shutter, windows brought in
layers of color and texture
I would take all on-line classes if I had this dorm room.

I love this container thing that they found at an antique store in Abilene, Texas where the college is located.  

Here is a glimpse of a party Shelbi helped plan too.  A baby shower at a restaurant in Dallas.

Shelbi has a great event site to look at here
and her personal blog here has more on the dorm room and party.

Thanks Shelbi for letting me share the fun.

  1. I agree with you, they did a fabulous job!

    With all that work they put into it I hope they can keep that same room throughout their college stay.

    (You could share that on my party if you want)
