|Turner House Sample Room Makeover|
shopSCAD and Working Class Studio joined forces to makeover the Turner House sample dorm room. This room, located in Turner House, is the freshman dorm and is shown to prospective SCAD students and parents so they can get an idea of what residential life will be like on campus.
Jonathan Osborne and I had a ball infusing giant doses of color and pattern so characteristic to the aesthetic of both Working Class Studio and shopSCAD.

Formerly this room was decorated with a softer, more neutral palette that was decidedly feminine. Our desire was to make the room more inviting to both guys and gals so we went for a unisex-y approach and even made mail slots for hypothetical students with the gender-neutral names of Sam, Pat and Chris. Once we named our "prospective students" for this room, we thought of what their majors could be and decided designwise to show this through a cork mood board framed with a different color puffy frame by Working Class Studio at each student desk.
One was a fashion student with sketches, fabric swatches and sewing machine; another a graphic design student with a Pantone book, computer and magazine clips; and lastly we had an illustration student with paints, colored pencils, artist model and Working Class Studio sketchbook.

While we were still thinking up the arrangement we were glad to be interrupted by a SCAD tour coming through. The SCAD student giving the tour gave us the great space-saving idea to stack one of the three beds on top of the two student drawers.
For those of you who like to compare and contrast, go to the bottom of this post for before and after pictures! This room is packed with fabulous work made by shopSCAD artists and Working Class Studio, and much of what you see in the room is available at shopSCAD for purchase.

Good news! If you love this Savannah Toile fabric and would like to make some curtains for yourself it will soon be available at shopSCAD for purchase by the yard. The toile print was designed by SCAD fibers alumna Morena Guzman for Working Class Studio several years ago and features a scene typical of a Savannah square with SCAD student riding his bike. It is quite charming and very popular at the shop. We sell a whole lot of the tea towels and aprons! The toile is available as shown in burnt scarlet and also in teal, mustard and gecko.
The Kathleen Collection Lamp by Working Class Studio is made from vintage album covers and makes a cool unisex-y accessory in the dorm room. It has been featured in numerous magazines including Every Day with Rachael Ray!

It was awesome to have found this sketch in the room before starting the project! This designer is obviously not designing for just the size 2 customer.

Ahhh, the bathroom was rather tight so we decided to purchase an over-the-commode storage area. It worked out beautifully to store lots of shopSCAD bath products goodies by SCAD alumna Kate Bethel. I like to think that Sam, Pat and Chris will just love Kate's fresh fig bath bombs, grapefruit and vanilla triple-milled soap, milk and sugar shampoo and conditioner, and Earl Grey perfume! The shower curtain was custom made by Working Class Studio in their lovely Savannah Toile fabric in teal. The artwork "$5.00 EVERY-THINGS" is a wood block print by SCAD alumna Jennifer Jenkins. The rug was made by SCAD alumnae Trish Andersen and Maureen Walsh of Domestic Construction.

Rubber duckies are always a cozy addition to a bathroom, right?

The Savannah Toile Curtains in gecko really make the closet area seem more inviting.

Jonathan did not scrimp on details, I must point out that this tube mailer is humorously addressed to "Pat C. Klein." Yay! Well, it made us happy anyway.
