The Anti-Maximilian Dorm Room

The Anti-Maximilian Dorm Room

While the internet gets swept up in this rad, preppy, over the top dorm room (which we totally appreciate by the way) we thought we'd find its antithesis: something simple, something clutter free and totally minimal:

Irksome Cushion's Dorm Room is everything we aspire to create in our own home (don't even get us started on what our dorm room looked like): it's not unnecesarily complicated or cluttered, it's light and bright and dotted with just a few details like the branch of blossoms and the artwork above the bed. The workspace is simple and practical and the whole tiny space feels approachable and inviting (and clean!). In our own lives, collections of all the stuff we love and can't live without seriously gets in the way of recreating this aesthetic. So even though we love this look and the look of Maximilian's Dorm, our own style falls somewhere in between: not chock full and not zenned out.

Do you have a dorm room that you want to share? School's almost out so finish up those projects and upload your photos to the Apartment Therapy Flickr Pool.
