The Making of the Zen Den

When I came to campus, I knew I wanted to create a space I felt comfortable, relaxed, and rejuvenated in, that was open to my friends.  I heard the term “Zen Den” from another school at a conference I was at, and I knew I needed to make one in my dorm! Here is what it features:




The best part about it is that it is all under my lofted bed. I can paint a canvas, read a book, give myself a manicure, or have a tea party all in my dorm. I am so happy I have created this space that my friends and I can feel safe and relaxed in. Please steal this idea for your dorm!
