I am heading off to college and so excited to decorate my first ever dorm room! Can you point me in the right direction to find stylish, yet functional dorm essentials? Thank you!

College is such an exciting time for many reasons, but one of them is that it is your first chance to design a space that is totally you, and I am honored to help you out! Since your dorm room is where you will be spending all of your time (when not in class or at the library), it is important to make it as inviting an environment as possible. Focus first on your bed, as it will be the focal point of the room. Contrast the white walls while bringing your space to life with a cool comforter, multi-colored sheets and stylish throw pillows.
Next, shift your attention to your desk and transform it into a place that makes studying fun with fab accessories, like a leopard power strip—major!—and floral storage boxes. Dress up the walls with a fashionably functional magnetic board and personal, affordable art. Finally, don’t forget to stay chic and organized for the shared bathroom with an on-trend towel and printed portable basket. xoRZ
