The rising-sophomore roommates are featured on the cover of magazine, and throughout the article they share their own approach to making their room feel a little bit more like home.

The secret, the two explain, is to start with a color scheme—and coordinate those plans with your roommate over the summer, if at all possible.

“We knew we wanted to do yellow and navy, with cream. So we really just tried to find items in those colors over the summer when we were out and about,” Rademaker said.

Ultimately, the pair said their goal was to have a place they wanted to come back to at the end of the day. “A lot of our friends didn’t have that homey vibe in their room, and they ended up coming over to our room to hang out,” added Fakunle.
