Reader's Bedrooms: Erin's Little Space

(Welcome to Bedroom Month! We're taking inspiring bedroom submissions from our readers. Join us.All info is here.)

Welcome to Erin!

I live in a new student housing building in Harlem. I've got a fabulous view of St. Nicholas park, but like most here I'm working with a tiny room. Our apartment is small, and this is my only refuge in the world, so I've tried to make it personal while staying within the strict guidelines dictated by the dorm. I'm not even supposed to hang pictures! I try to compensate by keeping the accessories colorful.

The chair is a trash-pile find and prized possession. The curtain over the closet is a Target favorite, I love that white pattern on a black background.

I got the paper lantern at miniminimarket in Williamsburg.

Enjoy! Erin
