LED lights are in this year. The stringed baubles are adorning dorm rooms all over campus. While resident capacity is limited due to the pandemic, students still love making spaces their own, as pictured here during fall move-in week.
And with everyone spending more time at home these days, redecorating and remodeling are booming. We spoke with alumna Kristin Rocke BS’98, founder and owner of K. Rocke Design, to get some tips for adding aesthetic appeal and comfort to our surroundings.
No. 1: Less is more.
Especially in small spaces. Don’t just buy pretty new things at box stores. What you take away can add more than bringing in new things.
No. 2: Limit your colors.
Stick to a tight segment of the color wheel, and use colors that look alike. Contrasting colors in confined places can be headache-inducing.
No. 3: Bring the outside in.
Get some greenery and life in there. Even a few succulents can help you relax when you’re stuck inside.
