I knew living with 7 of my closest friends would be fun, but I never could have imagined it would be like this! It's wild, crazy, and definitely messy but I wouldn't trade it for the world. I literally feel like I spend more time sitting on my front porch with my housemates than any other spot; we're averaging like 6 hours a day at this point, and even more on the weekends! Thank god for our new porch swing!
Oxford is an adorable college town, and one of its most well-known quirks is that all of the student houses have fun names. Some of them play off of the street they sit on, such as "Spoiled Beeches" on Beech Street, and others are just fun party names like "Fraturdays" (one of my favorites because it has a Vineyard Vines whale on the house sign). There's been a lot of debate about the origins of my house name, but its been that way for as long as we can remember - my house is over 70 years old! (The sensitive plumbing and lack of central air serve as proof for that).
Still, you can't beat this house. We live literally a one minute walk from uptown and all of the bars, and a two minute walk from the library. Our house is situated as close to the center of campus and Oxford as you can be!
So, without further ado, my adorable home away from home, "Slow Idaho"!
Front of our house, but it goes WAY back!
My room is actually much bigger than it looks in this picture, this is really just my side!
My dresser - I'll get some better closeups of this and my desk in another post soon!
My desk and dresser area - finally got my pictures and paddle all hung up!
My bed and nightstand - I love my christmas lights and monogram painting!
Not the best picture of my bedding but I love it!
I painted this this summer and its hanging in my closet! I love seeing it when I start my day.
Me with (some) of my housemates and a couple other friends hanging out on the stoop like always!
See if you can guess which one I am! - I'll tell y'all in a week or two!
That's all I have for now, but once I can figure out how to get better lighting and finish up some more final touches I'll post pictures of my closet and some closeups of my desk and dresser/vanity!
Hope you liked it! How did you decorate your room/apartment/dorm?
