Dorm Design

Here is me all decked out in my college gear and ready to go! Today my mom met me after work and we went to TJ Maxx and Walmart to go dorm room shopping. I had so much fun. I got tons of fabulous decor for my room. My color scheme is light greens and dark, chocolate brown. I wanted to avoid all things plastic, fake looking, and obnoxious colored or print. 

We made out with a brown wicker basket and two "party tubs" from Better Homes and Gardens that are green. I'm going to use these under my bed for storage and probably to hold clothes. Then I got this perfect comforter set that is green with leaves on it. It matches all of my throw pillows perfectly. We got a reed diffuser with a delicious vanilla scent and a cute little vase to match. Then we finished up with some green and brown towels and wash cloths. 

We also picked out some adorable "Thank You" cards that I will send out after my Graduation Party. It was a wonderful success and I can't wait to put everything together in my dorm room.

  1. Have fun! I loved decorating my college dorm a few years ago! You should check out my tutorial on wall art -- it's perfect for dorms because it's lightweight and doesn't require nails in the wall. Most college dorms allow you to put velcro and other "poster hangers" on the walls.

    p.s. I'm looking forward to being your pen pal!
