While you’re enjoying summer, it may be hard to think about college preparations but founder of Your Perfect Dorm, Jody Dyke, makes it as easy as sipping a Strawberry and Peach Rosé Sangria poolside.
Start with a rug to roll out your design. Jody says a rug can make even the smallest space inviting, plus can double as comfy floor seating for a room full of friends.
Layers and textures can make even an institution-issued bed feel glamourous; mix cottons, velvets, faux fur, tweeds, linens, and metallics. For the win, Jody recommends washed linen for bedding; it’s machine washable and gets better with every wash.
Creating as much storage as possible is the key to a successful semester. Storage ottomans are a subtle hardworking option that provide storage, seating and a step stool to reach shelving or the top bunk.
#4 BED SKIRTS
They can be functional, not just frivolous—who knew? Use them to hide storage drawers and clutter while creating a finished look.
#5 WALL ART
Add a sophisticated touch and reminder of home with a monogrammed initial sign.
PRO TIPS FROM YOUR PERFECT DORM
Invest in a queen-size quilt to carry through more than one year (and changing bed sizes). Buy a tower fan. It helps cool the room, circulates air and comes with the bonus of drowning out hallway noise. Yes, comfort is possible on a dorm room mattress—a memory foam mattress topper is where it’s at! Need help? Whether you know exactly the look you want or need inspiration to get started, the Your Perfect Dorm showroom is open or ready to ship worldwide.
