The Long Awaited Dorm Room Pictures

 Friday, October 19, 2012

It's official. I have been in school for a month and a half and have yet to show y'all my dorm room. This has been the most emailed request lately.

Without further ado here they are:


Isnt it cute? My roommate and I decided to co-ordinate our bedding for this year. (I'm the bottom bunk) She smartly picked up this Calypso bedding from Bed Bath and Beyond and I knew I had to get the matching set. I found the fantastic wicker boat at a marshalls store and knew it would be the perfect accent on our walls!


I am living this year in my sorority house in a double. The closets are very large for a dorm room and yet I still filled mine up almost immediately. Above our desks (my roommate's is out of this picture) we hung two Lilly Pulitzer lanterns. 

How did y'all decorate your dorm rooms in college? (for those still in college and those lovely readers who have recently graduated)

For the first two years I had mint green and light pink plaid bedding, and for junior and senior years I had pink and white toile bedding!

I love seeing the way houses are set up! H and I had a leopard and black themed room--very Victoria's Secret with lots of bling/ glamour pieces everywhere! And the year before, big and I had a Lilly themed room and used accents of the "Island Hopping" fabric through the room, like on our closet curtains! I LOVE decorating my college room! <3

Your comforters are presh and I really like how they go with the lilly stuff without being too much!

how cute! I love that you two coordinated your bedding. It makes the room look really pulled together

Love the comforter set! I have teal and lime green in my room — I wish my roommate and I coordinated, but she's not a matcher like I am.

Loving the Lilly lanterns too!

Cute! And yes that is a great size closet for a college room!

Our school was strict about not putting stuff on the walls but I did always keep cute bedding and decorated my desk and dresser with knickknacks.

Love that bedding, so cute! Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I never lived in a dorm, so I can't say how I decorated it. But I DID have a college apartment. Lots of band posters. That's the extent of my decorating expertise back then lol

I can't wait to go to university and decorate a whole new space for me to live in! Yours looks so fun:)
Also, thank you so much for the lovely comment on for being my 300th follower!

i didn't even really live in my first dorm - but i remember trying to co-ordinate bedding and stuff and that being really annoyingly difficult. i gave up when i ended up moving to a different dorm - i was there maybe 1 day every month? i got an apartment with my now husband the next year but i never put effort like you did - yours looks cozy and nice.

Very cute, love the colors! This makes me miss college! My dorm room was always very pink and green too!

I love the idea for the shoes...looks really good for small spaces... I miss college not because of the dorm...because my mom did not allow me to experience this... good for you guys!!!
