This Pinterest-Worthy Dorm Room Will Give You Major Room Envy
A fantastic room inspired by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai's ukiyo-e, or "pictures of the floating world."
People are going crazy over this incredible room in a student dormitory in China.
The plate on the door of the room says "Kanagawa," a reference to this famous woodblock print by Hokusai.
When I opened the door and looked inside...
According to the student who posted the pictures, the design of the room is based on this ukiyo-e (woodblock print) by Hokusai.
A fabric with "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" printed on it hangs around the room.
With a desk this beautiful, you might actually be inspired to start studying...
On Weibo, comments poured in from people who were impressed by the room's design.
"The picture you posted, it's really gorgeous. I love this kind of style. Awesome. I envy your roommates for meeting a wonderful artist like you 👍👍👍❤️❤️❤️"
Some people posted comments with pictures of their own rooms.
The "Kanagawa Room" is the collaborative effort of four students who study Japanese at Xihua University.
The four students (who are also roommates) purchased the materials online and designed everything.
One of them elaborated, "All roommates like this Japanese style. Needless to say, this does not mean anti-patriotism against China"
