Dorm Room Chic Day One: Bedding

I'm going to be headed off to university in a few short weeks and I'm going to be staying in residence for this year. I was lucky enough to have gotten a suite complete with a small kitchenette and dining area. I'm starting a little mini series for a little while called Dorm Chic! Like you, I hate those stereotypical dorm rooms with the cinder block walls and plain colours. Throughout the weeks leading up to university/college move in, I'm going to be showing you how you can spruce up your dorm from the bedding, to the desk area over to the walls! Your dorm will definitely not be a dull space!

Chances are, being a university/college student, you'll be spending a lot of time in bed. Sleeping will most likely be your best friend. In some cases, sleeping may be hard to come by. Ensure that your bed is comfortable by bringing a mattress pad. Dorm beds are notorious for being uncomfortable. A mattress pad will ensure that your back doesn't ache when you wake up in the morning to head off to class. 

1. Xhilaration "Bed in a Bag" Black and White Damask 59.99$ (Twin/Single)
2. Ikea Britten Nummer Fabric 3.99$ p/ meter
3. Ike Emmie Blom Cushion 7.99$
4. Xhilaration Black Fur Pillow 19.99$
5. Xhilaration "Bed in a Bag" Scroll 39.99$

The Ikea fabric above is a totally reasonably priced way to add a personal touch to your bed area. Consider making your own pillowcases or throw if you're crafty. You can save yourself a lot of cash and ensure that no one else has the same thing! 

Larger body pillows are great replacements for those hundreds of pillows you have on your bed at home. You shouldn't be moving your entire room with you to university/college. Just what you need for the time being!

  1. Also check to see the size of your bed. Most colleges have extra long beds/mattresses, so you'll need to buy extra long sheets.
