Preppy Prodigy

I am all about supporting other designers and artists because it can be tough out there for us to try and make a name for ourselves. Of course Mom, Dad, Husband and Wife are always there to build you up and make you feel special but there is something about being recognized by your peers that gives you a different sense of accomplishment. When someone else does something brilliant I am all about giving them credit and even though about 4 people read this blog, I still want the world to know that I think that person has done something wonderful. So today I would like to recognize a 21 year old college student who has turned his dorm room into something amazing. New York Magazine is one of my favorites, recently I saw their online article about Maximilian Sinsteden. He is a senior at Drew University in Madison New Jersey and he has amazing style. He is a French and Art History Major and has an amazing eye for interiors. Look at these photos of his dorm room, I mean hello!!! I imagine him as such a doll and I know we are going to be hearing about him in the future, clearly he has an amazing talent.

Boy, my college dorm room was a far cry from that!! Actually back then I really could have cared less.

Mine looked and felt more like a prison. I wish I had known then what I know now!

I like the spareness of it all, if you'll pardon the irony. At the risk of sounding negative it looks as if he went to a wall store and bought a wall of ... whatever ... in much the same way some decorators buy yards of books to fill shelves.

At least you know I'm reading your blog!

You have to admit, even though it is a bit over the top and filled to the brim with thrift store finds, it is pretty fabulous for a dorm room. And according to the article by New York Magazine, those are all pieces of art that friends of his have done...I mean, at least it's not artwork from Ikea!
