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?
From a bright green desk to a cheeky message pillow, the perfect room – dorm or otherwise – is all about the details. We designed the Nokia Lumia 925-inspired room with sleek and simple furniture, plus warm touches like tactile blankets and graphic rugs, to create a space that’s at once cozy and modern.
You can see a lot of our favorite Apartment Therapy tips for small spaces at play here: multi-purpose furniture, portable seating, plenty of non-overhead lighting, and, of course, a landing strip in the entrance. If only we had known this stuff in college!
