Dorm Room Decor

Dorm rooms have come a long way from the plastic milk crates and wipe off memo boards that I remember.  Next month, not one, but two of our favorite baby sitters head off to college. Since I was asked (and flattered to be) here's a few ideas for making those stark dorm rooms feel a bit more cozier and a lot more stylish~

1. sunburst wire wall art from West Elm
2. peace sign jewelry stand from Urban Outfitters
3. small book case from Target
4. monogram throw pillow from
5. graphic throw blanket from
6. cork board from Nordstrom
7. striped dhurrie from Serena and Lily

  1. This is one of my favorite topics to design for. If I were going back to college, I would definitely get the Zhush monogrammed shams

  2. You always have so good taste! Really enjoy your board! The mirror it's amazing ;)

  3. Now that's a cork board we would have loved to have in our college days! So great to see you today and catch up and we hope your sitters heed your sage decorating advice. Their rooms will be the best in the dorm!

  4. what an elegant dorm room with that pillow. In love with mine!

  5. Way to "Zhush" up a dorm room. Makes me wishing I were heading off to college, again! (Not) You'll laugh but at the end of my son's Freshman year, I tossed nearly all the linens in a dumpster that was outside the dorm. I was scared to bring it home. Boys.
    Girls are so different.


Got something to share? Would love to hear it. I read every single comment:)
