You Have To See This Over-the-Top Sorority House Makeover
In the South, sorority houses are much more than just four walls where you’ll live in college. They are the place where currrent members, alumni, and guests gather to study after class, fellowship with friends over dinner, and celebrate events on the weekend. When Dallas-based designer Abbe Fenimore of Studio Ten 25 was approached to design the Alpha Omicron Pi house at Missouri State University, she wanted to make sure the house reflected the organization and met the functionality needs while also creating something that the sorority would be proud to call their home. The design gives a subtle nod to the sorority colors and flower, while creating a beautiful and functional space that will be loved for years to come.
The symmetrical exterior of the home welcomes residents and guests with a landscaped sidewalk leading to double French doors. Black letters pop against the white brick and stone façade.
In order for the entryway to provide functionality and a wow-factor, Abbe opted for a wallpapered ceiling with a pearlized white vintage chandelier.
The cabinet, bold gold mirror, and other little details add personality to the space without plugging up too much entryway real estate.
This bold and beautiful room is the first space you see in the home. A large bookshelf painted in a soft blush hue, Sherwin-Williams Innocence, is the focal point.
Abbe added a modern touch with accessories like the custom art from Dallas artist Corinne Bizzle and brass end tables with a laser-cut rose pattern.
The Living Area
The living space offers plenty of seating. Abbe opted to use the same couch that is in the library in a different shade of velvet for consistency.
A white mirrored cabinet serves as wall decor while also hiding the TV. The matching cabinet below offers additional storage.
The Dining Area
White faux bamboo dining chairs surround round wood tables in the bright dining space.
The seats are covered with a durable pink vinyl to add a pop of color and create a cohesive look with the other spaces in the home.
