Boarding School Dorm Room PART 1//The Bed: Your Dreamiest Corner

With school in full swing, I thought I would start a dorm room installation series to give you some fresh new ideas on how to spruce up your small space that is the dorm room. If you are like me, the dorm room decor is an all year round project. I’m constantly looking to tweak things here and there to jazz it up. It’s an endless love affair…;)

Here is a sneak preview of how the series will be organized:

Part 1: The Bed & Accoutrements

Part 2: Desk Organization/School Essentials

Part 3: Walls & Floor

Part 4: Misc

I will start the series with the bed & all its essential accoutrements to help you make your sleeping space as good as the one you have at home 🙂 A good night’s sleep is undoubtedly one of the most important things to strive for as a student. There’s nothing better than getting dreamy, restful sleep, especially when under enormous amounts of stress… But let’s be real. A bed is never just a bed. It is a couch, a reading corner, t.v. watching station, and of course, the ultimate reflection/showcase of your personality. Keep reading to see what pillows/duvet/mattress topper I use to get A1 sleep every single night and of course, all my favorite things that go on and below my bed to make it my dreamiest corner.

Duvet Cover

Restoration Hardware– The Italian framed duvet cover in black is out of stock, but I believe RH still has grey and pink. You can also get it monogrammed which is always an A+ personal touch. While this style in particular reminded me a lot of hotel-style bedding, it was really the crisp, B&W look that caught my eye. This year, I was definitely going more for a minimalist/glossy theme as opposed to last year, which was admittedly all over the place stylistically…

Pom Pom Frenzy // Here/Now Stella Sneakers && Tibi Pom Pom Sweater

At the moment….Pom Poms are IN. You will likely see these hyper-feminine details everywhere this season. Two of my favorite fall pieces are hands down, these baby blue denim sneakers from Here/Now and this alpaca pom pom cropped sweater from Tibi. The sneakers are irresistibly soft (light as dandelion fluff!) and the most placid shade of light blue ever, lending easy capacity/neutrality to complement a wide palette of fall colors. And the sweater?? Furry, soft, statement-y, and especially suitable for the tactile bunch (you know who you are)…is there anything not to like?? Bring it on, fall. We’re coming for you  ~ Whether it’s a phone case, a pair of sneakers, or a jumper, opt for the spherical wonder of the furry variety!
