Dorm Tour!!

Dorm Tour!!

Welcome to my dorm!!  I’m so excited to be sharing my little piece of home with you guys today!  I probably spent waayyy too much time planning out every little detail of this room but at least it turned out great!  I wanted my room to be super cozy but not too over-the-top.  I’m not a fan of loading up my walls with posters or collages.  I prefer to keep my space pretty open and air (or as open an airy as a door could be).  Pretty much everything in my room is from Urban Outfitters since I’m an Urban Co. employee.  I absolutely love their apartment line–it’s perfect for dorm living!

If you couldn’t already tell, my favorite color is yellow.  I pretty much centered my room around the color yellow.  To tone break up the yellow, I added in some mauve and white, my other two favorite colors.  My duvet is just a simple heather light grey duvet from Urban.  I actually had this same duvet last year and loved it so much that I wanted to keep it.  It’s probably the softest duvet I’ve ever had.  My throw blankets are both from target.  I have an extra large white fluffy throw blanket and then a knit white and gold smaller throw blanket folded on top of it.

I have a serious obsession with throw pillows.  If I had a dollar for every throw pillow I could probably buy myself a thousand more throw pillows.  All of my throw pillows in my dorm are from, you guessed it, Urban Outfitter!  I know, I’m obsessed, you don’t need to tell me twice.  Instead of describing all one hundred throw pillows on my bed, here’s a link to all of them:

Mauve sherpa pillow

Yellow round pintuck pillow

Mauve faux fur pillow

Everyone is welcome here

Feminist pillow

Winky embroidered pillow

And now for my absolute favorite part of my room: my tapestry.  Words cannot explain how in love with this tapestry I am.  When I saw this on the Urban website I literally flipped out and sent a picture of it to all of my friends.  If I was a tapestry, I would be this tapestry.  Urban also makes it in a duvet with matching pillows but I thought that buying the entire set would be a little (just a little) much.  On top of my tapestry I have a few strings of fairy lights that I just ordered off of Amazon.  To fill the empty space behind my bed, I hung up this light-up half moon (fun fact: my mom thought it was a banana!).

Next to my bed I have a cube set from Ikea.  The set I ordered only came with two cubes but I knew that wouldn’t be tall enough so I ordered an extra cube to go on top.  This makes the perfect nightstand–the extra storage is a necessity and it looks really cute.  On the top shelf I have a few books that I love, a cinema light-up box, a ciao figurine, and a bunch of succulents because I’m a plant freak.  On top of my cube I have a frame from Chip and Joanna’s collected at Target.  Inside the frame I printed out my favorite quote “Everything will be so good so soon just hang in there and don’t worry about it too much.” I have two more succulents, my favorite candle from Anthropologie, and a peaceful Buddha from the Christmas Market at Bryant Park with my meditation beads that my mom got me from India.  I also have my favorite elephant figurine that I got when I was in Italy (fun fact #2: the marble used to make this figurine is from the same quarry where Michelangelo got the marble he used to make his David!!).

Over my desk I hung up a scratch off rose gold map that I got from Urban.  And let me tell you, nothing has made me as happy as scratching off literally 3/4 of Europe!  I picked up this travel calendar from Anthropologie because I have way too much wanderlust.  I also have my favorite elephant mug from Urban Outfitters, my pink polaroid camera, a cactus, and a mirror that doubles as my jewlery holder from Urban Outfitters.  I also have a few little knickknacks on my desk: an elephant a friend got me in Bangkok, a joyful Buddha, and a small marble dish from Anthropologie.

Thanks for reading today’s post!  I put a ton of effort into my dorm and creating this post for you guys so I hope you enjoyed it!(:  Be sure to subscribe with your email to receive post notifications and follow me on Instagram @jessmiele to keep up with me!
