Ikea and college / by Mike Tyle

It happened. Ikea made me it's bitch yet again. 

But now I have nice things and my apartment is slowly coming together. I am going for a contemporary minimalistic sort of look. Hence paired down walls and clean lines mixed with pops of bright colors.

I am also hoping to painting a sort of Missoni chevron along one wall of my living room. I'll keep you updated if things go as planned. 

Also, I have been lucky enough to be asked by my alma mater to speak at Career Day. I am incredibly excited and humbled that the Apparel Merchandising & Design department at CMU feels I have already reached a point where I can give advice and guidance to the young professionals whom I will someday considered my peers. I remember always being excited for Career Day when I was an undergraduate. It's great to see people who have completed the program and are making a life for themselves after.

In other news work has been well. August is a good month in Europe. Most people are on vacation, which means September will be a bit stressful. Can't wait! In the mean time I have been able to do some mean BBQing and of course hitting up the end of les soldes.
