Bedroom Eyes: Austin, Texas

One of my favorite things is interior design so seeing my college friends’ rooms for the first time is always interesting to me. Whether it is a dorm room or apartment, each one is unique and a representation of their personal style. A room is so intimate and a true look into the owner’s personality – it is rare that we see what our friends are like when we’re not around. For this reason I’m starting a series called Bedroom Eyes that will spotlight my favorite rooms and where to find the awesome items featured.

The first room I love and want to share is my sorority grand-little Alexann’s room. Alexann is from the south and her bedroom is decorated in a rustic, desert-inspired manner that makes me feel like we are in her hometown of Austin, Texas. I love her use of muted colors, opposing textures and patterns, animal figures and lots of candles. Here are a few views of her room and where to get my favorite things in it.

Alexann (pictured above) says her go-to places for decorating include local Austin stores like Wildflower OrganicsUncommon Objects, Mockingbird Domestics, Spartan and JM Dry Goods.

Here’s my take on her fresh and cool room:
