A Dorm Room Of My Own

Filled with antique maps, vintage Boy Scouts posters and an acupuncture ear model, Augusta Dayton's room is not that of your average fashion-forward girl. The 19-year-old student, who rocks APC and vintage Chanel, chose to decorate her small space with items that reflect her eclectic personal interests. How many fashion pioneers have worked at the Museum of Jurassic Technology and play the banjo? Augusta's dorm decorating outlook is that each item should be thoughtful and symbolic—she proudly displays her guitar alongside a portrait of one of her favorite artists. Though her room is filled with interesting nicks-knacks, Augusta knows the importance of making a dorm room feel like home. She's achieved this by displaying silhouettes of her parents on her wall and framing a painting of the ocean. Read on to see how Augusta incorporated elements of her California upbringing into her uptown New York haven.
