How do you approach a temporary living space? Knowing you want it to feel like home, but also knowing that space won’t be “home” for long. When it comes to college dorms, you also have to consider the limited space and restrictions. With this project, I explored how different people approach decorating their temporary living spaces. Some go all out, making use of every inch and transforming it into a version of their ideal home, while others keep it simple, bringing mostly the necessities and putting emphasis on a few small, important details. While some feel the need to take advantage of the months they’ll be spending in this new space, others focus on the temporary aspect, not feeling the need to set up elaborate decorations during their stay. This project allowed me to see what items these people considered important enough to bring with them, the things that they wanted to keep close, whether it be many things or just a few.
