Dorm Room Sneak Peek

Hello! As of today, there are only two more weeks until I move into my dorm room at PhilaU. I have spent a good deal of time this summer planning out my dorm room with my roommate, Anjelica. We decided on a kind of quirky-eclectic-boho-vintage theme. Our room will be filled with quirky pillows, fun lantern lights, DIY dreamcatchers, vintage tins, bohemian prints and walls completely covered in collages, postcards, polaroids, etc. Above is my pinterest board in which I gathered inspiration and ideas for the room. Below is a sneak peek at a few of the things that will be present in my dorm room next year.

I am very pleased with this pillow. The intricate detailing and phenomenal quality of this pillow have me swooning. And of course, the cute little fox design just has me ooh-ing and ahh-ing over it. I mean, could it get any more adorable? This sleeping fox pillow will be the perfect addition to my bed and will make my room a little more cozy. If you are looking for accent pillows like this fox pillow, I would definitely recommend checking out Uncommon Goods' selection of pillows HERE.  Uncommon Goods also sells a variety of other items including home & garden products, dining & entertainment products, office supplies, jewelry & accessories and gifts for men, women & children

In these photos, the sleeping fox pillow is on top of my comforter for this fall. This comforter is from Urban Outfitters. I really love the blue and green swirls of color in this comforter. It really pulls all the pieces in my room together.

An assortment of various vintage postcards and Polaroids. Throughout the past year, I have been working on collecting vintage postcards and taking several Polaroids for the walls of my dorm room. They are perfect for keeping the walls from being too boring and plain.

Elephant tote bags from World Market. When I saw these reusable tote bags in World Market for only 99 cents, I knew that I needed them for my dorm room. They fit perfectly in with the look that Anjelica and I are going for. Very hippie-chic. Originally, I was planning on using them to hold my dirty laundry but I'm not sure that they will be big enough. I guess I will see! It really depends on how often I end up doing my laundry. Even if I don't even up using these tote bags to hold my laundry, they will be ideal for storing something else like socks or bags.

Colorful vintage tins. These tins are ideal for holding something small like paperclips, erasers, rings, bracelets, spare change, etc. And they are much more fun than just a plain box! In this photo, they are sitting on top of a large vintage scarf. I plan on hanging this gorgeous bohemian scarf on my wall for extra pizzazz.

DIY collages. I have made several fashion-related collages from old magazines this summer that I plan on taping up on my dorm room walls. If I'm feeling uninspired, all I need to do is look up. And voila- instant inspiration! 

I hope that you guys enjoyed this little dorm room sneak peek! Photos of my actual dorm room will hopefully be posted in about three weeks.
