Freshman Year Dorm Tour

Monday, October 23, 2017

Happy Monday y'all! I am so excited to be sharing today's post as it's a... tour of my freshman dorm room! I've been meaning to share this post for a while and I'm so excited to finally share it with y'all. Decorating my dorm was one of the things I was most excited for in college and I love how my small corner of campus came out. I took lots of pictures and have all of the details on the bottom for y'all!

When you walk into our room, there is a wall that is fairly large so we decided to do a cute gallery wall. I found the Clemson print at the Swoozie's in Charlotte but the hydrangeas print and the brunch print (no longer available) are both from Evelyn Henson!

In between my desk and my roomie's desk is a window and we have the micro fridge with the Keurig underneath it. When we were deciding on decor for our room, my mom mentioned that she had light blue curtains from my sister's room before she redecorated so those wound up working perfectly for the space!

My desk has a lot of storage on the shelves so I knew I wanted to optimize that to get the most storage out of the space.

I also have no idea what is going on with my clock in this picture!

The top shelf has a box that my big gave me during Big/Little that I keep food and paper goods like plates and napkins in! Plus, I keep my water bottles and coffee cups there!

I decorated the wall next to my desk with my monogram, a bunch of pictures, and then my bid to Theta to make it a bit more cheery and home-y!

My bed is in the corner part of our room, which I seriously love as it makes it super cozy! I choose all white bedding for a polished look but love it paired with a fun headboard and accent pillows. While I was home for Fall Break, my mom surprised me with a super cute white and gold pillow with my sorority letters so now that is on my bed too!

The bulletin board came with the room so I jazzed it up with some of my favorite pictures as well as a fun set of string lights my roomie bought. Irene of My Pink and Green Garden sent a fun pendant so I love that hanging above my bed as well!

My dresser is built-in next to my bed so I use the table-top as a vanity as I get ready there in the morning. I keep my hair tools on command hooks with a canvas my big made me hanging above it. I also keep some jewelry, an old Lilly candle jar full of my makeup brushes, perfume, and a picture frame here!

One of the things I love about my dorm room is that it has a walk-in closet, which is so nice for storing all of my clothes. It doesn't have a light so unfortunately these pictures didn't turn out as well as I wanted them to but I still wanted to show y'all the space. I use Command Hooks for my robe, a few baseball hats, and my purses and then it had pre-built hanging rods that I use for my towels. I bought a shoe rack from the Container Store that is so handy and then keep random odds in ends in a smaller basket. I keep toiletries on the shelf and then brought a big Lilly storage container to store my weekender bag and things I don't use as often!
