Or Mrs. Modern! All you need for this room look is white + black furniture, a few prints, plenty of industrial modern looking accents, and maybe a pop of color!

For this room look, use minimal pattern in large quantities, and rather, use a few bold patterns in small quantities. Try an accent pillow or a throw blanket!

6. Farmhouse Friendly

For those of us who can't seem to get rid of old books, postcards, or pictures (no shame), this one is for you! Simply hang up all your old momentoes over your desk as reminders of how blessed you are! Keep the furniture simple so as not to distract from your keepsakes!

8. White + Bright, Clean + Green

Grab a bold-patterned comforter or maybe a tie-dyed tapestry and a disco ball to complete this look! A mirror and some plants might help to balance out the pops of pizzaz!

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part.
