She knows where she’s going (at least to college this fall) and maybe even know who she’s rooming with. Whew, right? #theDRAMA.

Not so fast though. Critical stress is yet to come. We all know the most important decisions of June in the mind of a college-bound girl, and they’re not (yet) what to wear to recruitment or the fall course selection.

It’s the Dorm Decor.

This is her first “home of her own” and she wants the look to be perfect. You want her to feel happy, comfortable and cozy, able to study but also able to kick back and enjoy the fun.

Cue the pinterest boards. And, occasionally, more drama.

But it doesn’t have to be. Your Perfect Dorm is a one-stop shop for daughters (and parents) to create a room of their dreams with all the comforts of home.  All of the collections are one of a kind and organized with coordinating and varying fabrics, in gorgeous neutrals and rich colors to give you both a stress-free way to decorate her new space.  The work is done for you, and there are many bedding and accessory collections to choose from.

About Jody and Why She Started Your Perfect Dorm

Creating a happy dorm room for your daughter is what I do!

I began Your Perfect Dorm after my husband and I moved our two girls into their dorm rooms.  This is such an exciting time but can also be a stressful time.   We wanted to make sure our girls had a special place to come back to each day that gave them the comfort of their bedroom at home in their dorm room.  

I’m so excited to help your daughter and her roommate decorate their new dorm room!  Originally from Texas, my degree in Consumer Science and Retail Merchandising from University of Houston along with my background in high-end furniture and accessory sales led me to this business.  After raising my own daughters you can now find me in my showroom in Charlotte, NC with my dogs Molly and McCoy where I design all the collections for Your Perfect Dorm.  Please email me at: [email protected] and stop by to see my collection of beautiful dorm spaces.  I make it fun and easy for you!

My goal is to make this big adjustment in the life of your student a little bit easier.  When you drive away from dropping her off, I want you to feel comfortable because with Your Perfect Dorm, your daughter is going to settle into HAPPY in her new “home away from home”!
