The personal space of a post-secondary student often serves multiple purposes: providing a place to do school work, hang out with friends, get ready for a night out or simply relax. This week, I interviewed MUN student Victoria Burry who enjoys having an organized living space filled with natural light. Her spacious bedroom features an inviting black, white and purple theme. By incorporating pictures, posters and other decorative details, she was able to create a multifunctional area that reflects her fun and welcoming personality.

CollegeDormista: Why did you decide on a black, white and purple color scheme for your bedroom?
Victoria Burry: Purple is my favorite color and I wanted my space to be filled with some of my favorite things. Also, my room has a lot of natural light and I thought it would really bring out a purple accent wall. I chose the black and white because it’s very modern yet simple.
CD: How has your interior space influenced your style?
VB: My space really influences how I go about getting dressed. I like my closet to be very organized. If my clothes are coordinated in my closet, this is reflected in how I dress; it’s easier to pick something to wear. I love that everything is organized and has its own place; this is a necessity for me.
CD: Where is your preferred place to shop for home decor items and why?
VB: Definitely Winners/HomeSense. You can almost always find something stylish yet still affordable. I found a lot of the things in this room at HomeSense.
CD: If you were going to add one thing to your room, what would it be?
VB: I really want to do a Pinterest-inspired DIY to create a mason jar organizer attached to a piece of wood and hang it on my wall.
CD: What do you must enjoy about your personal space?
VB: My favorite things in my room are probably my posters and paintings because they are very personal to me and descriptive of the sort of things I like and my personality.
