Style Advisor: Taylor Monferdini

avatar School: University of South Carolina Sorority: Alpha Chi Omega Hi! My name is Taylor and I'm a junior at the University of South Carolina, studying Political Science. When I arrived at USC for the first time I knew I was going to be living on an stunningly gorgeous campus surrounded by an abundant amount of school spirit (Go Gamecocks!), but what I didn't know was that I was going to have the largest dorm room I'd ever seen! I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I had decorating my large space. Since then, I've moved numerous times (I'm losing count) and I pretty much have it down to an art. The upside all of the moves is being able to decorate so many different spaces, experimenting with new colors and styles. I love blending different styles so my personality comes through in every room. I can't wait to share all of my experiences and ideas with you on Dormify!
