Remember your freshman-year dorm? Klimt’s The Kiss hanging up on the wall, empty Rubinoff bottles lined up on the dresser, your terrible roommate being terrible? Well, times have changed. No longer can you slap up a Breakfast at Tiffany’s poster and call it a day — college kids are now decorating their dorms to look nicer than your (adult) apartment.
Lindy Goodson and Abby Bozeman, freshman roommates at Ole Miss, are currently going viral due to their elaborate dorm room, which, as this tweet indicates, may or may not have been assembled by their dads.
Their décor features plush white headboards, plush white rugs, plush white ottomans, plush white pillows, a nightstand-microwave combo — which is actually a great innovation, okay — and a sign that reads “Rebels.” The room looks very nice, and Goodson and Bozeman look like they would have bullied me in high school.
“It’s really competitive,” Bozeman told BuzzFeed. “So I was like, we definitely have to make ours look good. A lot of them here are done up.” Sure enough, after their room started making the rounds, several other young women started sharing equally fancy Ole Miss dorm rooms. And after looking at all of these photos, all I want to do is get locked inside a Pottery Barn until I can’t physically shop anymore, at which point both Property Brothers will carry my limp body out of the store and tuck me into bed.
