Dorm Decor + Cute Things to Bring to College

Whether you’re a little late on giving out graduation gifts or are shopping for the dream dorm room, we have the options you won’t want to miss. Picking out the perfect bedding can be hard. Shop online at LeighDeux.com or head over to Front Door Fabrics for a custom look you’ll never want to give up. Accessorize the bed with throw pillows and tie the room look together with a cute wall print. Don’t forget the little things – water bottles, notebooks and candles. The local shops have lots of cute things to remind her of home when she’s college bound.

{ps there’s no law saying most or all of these don’t work for any girl tween to twenty …. }

FRONT DOOR FABRICS

Front Door Fabrics does a little bit of everything for the dorm, depending on your budget ~ from something as simple as helping you pick out pretty fabric to frame or turn into a ribbon board/ cork board to brighten up the cinder block walls in their dorm to full on custom suite decor. Here are just a few photos = two dorm room designs, featuring fabric cushion “headboards” with decorative trims and monograms, custom designer pillows and bedding, and decorative accessories. And a college apartment that is custom designed with bedding, custom pillows, custom drapery panels and hardware, lamps, end tables, and decorative accents from the store, plus furniture painted with our Amy Howard paint to coordinate with the color theme.
