I don't know about you, but decor during my college years was somewhat scarce. The apartment I shared with two of the cutest girls was a mash up of our parents/grandparents' old furniture. Nothing matched and the framed poster artwork was not so inspired, but we loved it.
These days, there is no excuse to not have an adorable dorm room or college apartment. With Ikea, Pottery Barn Teen and Target, there are tons of inexpensive options for everything you need.
I am not sure I even knew what Ikea was in college, I can't imagine there being one less than 2 hours away in Orlando.
This was my bedroom...antique Ginny Lind bed, Ralph Lauren bedding and the ubiquitous Sixteen Candles poster. I could look at Jake Ryan all day long...
A company that advertises on Facebook called LeighDeux caters to this type of decor. Started several years ago by two girls names Leigh, this adorable website has tons of very pretty patterns with all the parts you need for your room...
So these days..instead of this:
you can have a room like this..
So fun. Obviously, many college bound students have Moms that can't wait to decorate their room and make it look special, but many Moms don't have creative bones in their bodies and this is where Leigh Deux can be a lifesaver.
Their feature is a headboard pillow..
and then you build your room around that...
There are lots of items to go with the headboards and bedding..pillows, poufs, bulletin boards, lamps, rugs, towels and wall monograms..all coordinated.
How cute is this dust ruffle-they call them curtain call bedskirts.
