A Peek Inside of My Dorm Room

About a month ago, I promised that I would do a blog post on my dorm room, and the time has come! I know it took me forever to write this, but that's because it took me forever to get my room done exactly the way I wanted it. There are still a few things that I want to do to my room, but I've decided that I would go ahead and share pictures of my dorm room in it's current state, so here it is!





For my bedding, I chose this adorable scalloped duvet cover from PBteen. I also got the matching sham and opted to get it monogrammed. All of my other pillows (except for the Kate Spade "hit snooze twice" pillow) are from HomeGoods.

For my gallery wall, I purchased all of my frames from Ikea. I fell in love with their frames immediately at the store, and all six of them were under $60 total. I printed out pictures and quotes on heavy matte photo paper that I purchased from Target. I found almost all of the prints I used for my gallery wall on pinterest (I made a board that includes the prints I used along with some of my other favorites). I mounted the picture frames to the wall using command strips. Command strips are a life saver! We are not allowed to nail things in the wall, but command strips are honestly better because they are so easy to use.




My desk cork board is from Target. I like Target's cork boards because of their simplicity–– since there are no distracting details on the frame, the pictures I selected to put on the board stand out more. My gold stapler and tape dispenser are also from Target. The jewelry boxes stacked in the corner of my desk are from Marshall's. I keep all of my favorite pieces that I wear the most inside of them. On top of my jewelry boxes is my bluetooth Jambox speaker. I thought I'd never use it, but I'm so glad I brought it to school with me! I use it almost every day.

Within the next month, I plan on making a headboard for my bed to cover the standard wood one that came with my room. I also plan on filling up the rest of the cork board with polaroid pictures I've taken throughout this semester so far.

    1. Hi Michaela, the navy "hit snooze twice" pillow is made by Kate Spade and I purchased it a year ago at Bed, Bath and Beyond. All other pillows (besides the monogrammed sham from PBteen) are from HomeGoods! Hope this helps! :)
