My sophomore year of college ended three weeks ago and I’m home for the summer. Even though the semester just ended, I’m looking forward to getting back to school in the fall for the start of my junior year. Don’t get me wrong, I have an exciting summer ahead with a lot of great things lined up, but I miss the fun of being away at school and of course my friends. I am looking forward to my third year in college. I’ve enrolled in some interesting classes for the first semester and I can’t wait to share an on-campus townhouse with three of my best friends.

Since February, we knew we would spend our junior year living together in a townhouse. Townhouse living is such an upgrade from the traditional dorm set up of the past two years. We will have a full kitchen, two bathrooms, a common area, and a dining room. The best part is that all four of us will be living under the same roof. I can’t wait to come home to my friends after a long day of classes, have some fun, laugh our heads off, and just be all around silly together.

Once we knew we had the townhouse we started to jot down some decorating ideas and color schemes for the common area. The four of us are huge fans of quotes so we plan to fill our walls with canvases and posters that include inspirational quotes to help us get through the challenges of junior year. We also want to decorate our walls with pictures of us from the semester to keep our memories alive and relive our crazy adventures.

Many of you might be thinking, Liv, why are you already starting to plan your townhouse months before you move in? I’m happy to announce that I am now a brand ambassador for the interior design company, Graham & Brown. This couldn’t come at a better time. With Graham & Brown’s help our townhouse will be awesome. This also gives me an exciting opportunity to showcase my love of interior design on my blog. In fact, one of my guilty pleasures is watching HGTV all night.

I’ve been browsing the Graham & Brown site and I’m amazed at the extent of their wall décor and other home accessories. I’ve created an inspiration board of all the items that would be perfect for our townhouse. My roommates and I have decided to fill our walls with lots of bright and mood inspiring color and quotes.

Graham & Brown offers a huge selection of wall décor featuring motivating quotes. I chose two canvases with a chalkboard background with pops of vibrant colors and of course an inspirational saying. I think our walls need even more color so I chose two more canvases featuring a beautiful, colorful floral print. I mean whose mood isn’t instantly boosted after looking at these prints?

Lastly, since all four of us have been friends since freshman year, we have been through a lot together. I decided the collage photo frame would be perfect for us to add our own individual trinkets and photos to celebrate our friendship.
