Thursday Room Hopping — Inexcusably Late Edition
Written by Bwog Staff
Bwog doesn’t have the cash to “pimp your room,” and we certainly don’t want to raid it and then date you. So we bring you the semi-weekly Thursday feature, the “Cribs-esque” Room Hopping, continuing with…
Kendall, C’08 rejoices in the “glue dot” (box at right). She has used this modest adhesive from Kate’s Paperie to collage the walls of her sizable Wallach single with photographs, magazine pictures, maps, and original artwork.
“I hate white walls,” she said. “You know that first night you spend in the room…” She shuddered.
The room wasn’t intentionally divided into zones, but every area of the room has a different scheme. Magazine models make a ceiling border, she has a zone for ticket stubs, snowy scenes of her native Colorado, and a photo shrine to her friends.
“I’m really organized. Things are kind of done in phases.”
She’s also hung two of her priceless posessions on the wall behind her desk: A guitar pick from her favorite band, Ok Go, and a cufflink of the lead singer’s. “One of his cufflinks fell off during the concert,” she said. And when her and a friend went to ask him to keep the recovered cufflink, he said he would need to take that one back. “But he runs all the way to the back and gets two broken cufflinks.” And she can ogle at it every time she sits at her desk. It’s proof that she “knew [the band] before they were big.”
Kendall is also pleased with her warm, soft, orangy lighting and her superior campus view:
“It’s cool when I wake up in the morning. I can see Riverside Church and I hear the bells on Sundays.”
