Front Door Featured: Scoop Charlotte- Cozy College Digs

It is hard to believe but summer is slowly starting to wind down, Target is full of back to school necessities, teachers are working on lesson plans, and the whisper of fall and beginnings of school are not as far off in the distance as a mid summer splash in the pool made them seem. We get a lot of requests here at the store around this time of year to help design first time dorm rooms and college apartments for many clients whose children are headed off to school come August. Depending on your budget we have helped coordinate and design everything from simply helping pick out pretty fabric to frame or turn into a ribbon board/ cork board to brighten up the cinder block dorm to full on custom suite decor and everything in between. You can check out our feature on Scoop Charlotte this week { here } and some pictures of some past and current projects below. Stop in soon and let us cozy up your college digs- we believe your home away from home can never be cozy and homey enough (unless, of course, you never leave it to come visit home!)
