Name: Greer Location: Los Angeles, CA Your Pet's Name: Fig (full name: The Notorious F.I.G.)
When did he/she come into your life? Fig came into my life in 2010, when she just about a year old. She was rescued from the desert north of Los Angeles, had been struck by a car, and subsequently suffered some physical abuse. When I got her she had a broken leg and hip, but was otherwise in remarkable shape, all things considered.
When Nokia asked us to design a dream dorm room based on their new Lumia 925 phone, we were psyched – and inspired. (And wishing we could retroactively spruce up our own dull dorms? Maybe a little.) Today, after a lot of brainstorming, wish-list making and virtual furniture shuffling, our divine dorm is finally ready IRL, and we can’t wait for you to come on in. Want to see the finished room?
Are you ready for an upgrade? Nokia's Lumia 925 is a sleek and user-friendly device that puts the "smart" back in "smartphone." It's a high-quality phone, web browser, camera, music and video player, and atlas, all in one. It even looks good — in fact, we used it as inspiration for a dream dorm room that Nokia will be unveiling on college campuses around the country. Want to see a sneak peek? Enter to win your Lumia 925 below, and then check out our mood board for the Apartment Therapy/Nokia dream dorm room!

Have you been putting off a project because you're short on time or money? BuildDirect helps you save on both, so your design dreams could be closer than you think.
A bed isn't just a mattress and box springs—it's a good night's rest before a big interview, a place for Sunday morning snuggling, and an impromptu trampoline for early-rising little ones. Italian bedding pioneer Flou keeps all these things in mind when designing its luxurious, innovative sleep systems. From bedbases to mattresses and even duvets, Flou has been turning cutting-edge technology into snooze button-quality sleep for over 30 years.
