OS Cribs: Charming Downtown House
Last week, we asked you lovely Penn State students to send us pictures of your attractive apartments, dorms, and houses. Of the responses we received so far, none were as homey and welcoming as the residence of seniors Emily, Katie, Taylor, and Casey on West Fairmount Avenue. Here is one of the best living spaces we have seen so far:
The first room belongs to Katie, a senior majoring in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Management with a minor in Business.
Katie’s gorgeous white built-in headboard offers storage for her Penn State paraphernalia, clothing, jewelry, and even a convenient light just above her pillow, in case she stays up late studying for all of those 400-level RPTM exams.
This warm, bohemian paradise belongs to Emily, a junior with majors in Economics and Labor Relations.
The opposite end of Emily’s room boasts a white dresser with classy nickel hardware, along with matte gray walls and three Pinterest-worthy DIY faux wall mounts of a zebra, a giraffe, and a rhinoceros.
Emily is lucky enough to also have her own private study area, complete with a cozy, colorful rug to brighten up the hardwood floors.
Here’s a closer look at that study area, complete with a mini-fridge and toaster oven. Econ homework can really get your stomach grumbling, you know?
This room, with its tranquil blue and beige beachy theme, belongs to Taylor, a senior majoring in RPTM and minors in Business just like Katie. The dreamy, gauzy white curtains and the photo of waves crashing on the wall make this room feel like a day at the shore.
A quick detour through the kitchen to the last bedroom shows us that these girls must be master chefs! Their collection of pots and pans are impressive, and so is their adorably colorful dinnerware.
Even more pots and pans! These girls are lucky they have such great storage solutions for all of this kitchen decor. That canvas against the refrigerator is right; life in this kitchen is beautiful.
Finally, the last room of the house belongs to Casey, another senior majoring in — you guessed it! — RPTM. Though the theme of the linens in the room is chic gray and white, the green walls and red accessories brighten up the room.
There you have it! You’ve now been dazzled by the most beautiful house in State College… at least, so far. Think you (or somebody you know) has a better looking dwelling for us to photograph and feature? Email me at [email protected] with a few snapshots and I’ll be the judge of that. My credentials? I watch a whole lot of HGTV.
