Making a living space feel like home is essential to one’s well-being. No one knows this better than TikToker Alethea Jay (@aletheajay), who used her interior design talents to transform her sister’s basic dorm room into a five-star luxury hotel. It’s so incredible that viewers are asking to book appointments.
The clip opens with a standard “before” shot of the dorm room. Luggage and plastic bags filled with bedding and linens are strewn all over the floor and bed. The camera pans to show more of the bare white cinderblock walls before stopping at a basic wooden desk and chair.
Prep your skin like a pro for a flawless makeup application:
Suddenly, the clip cuts to a shot of the completed design transformation. The makeover is so impressive that it’s hard to believe this is the same room from the previous footage.
Jay covered the walls with gray canvas paneling, adding warmth to the room, followed by framed professional photos of her sister. Plush sheets and pillows turn the once sterile-looking bed into luxurious sleeping quarters.
A neutral side table and tray adorned with crystal accents provide a minimal yet glamorous finishing touch.
“Do you have a business?”
Viewers took to the comments to compliment Jay on her work.
“OMG, this looks better than most luxury apartments,” said one user.
“Do you have a business? I would love your service,” one TikToker asked.
“From prison room to 5 star hotel,” another viewer added.
Others were curious about how her sister’s roommate and residential advisor felt about the bold decor.
“Is the other roommate ok?” joked one user.
“[It’s] all fun and games ’til that wallpaper doesn’t pass inspection for not being [at least] 2 feet away from the ceiling,” another TikToker noted.
While it’s unclear if the room passed the safety inspection, it definitely looked good in the process.
