Dorm Room Must Haves

Blog Post By: Victoria Uhrich

When I moved out of my parents’ house during college, there were so many emotions I faced. I love to plan ahead in life the best I can so I had saved money, found someone I trusted to be my roomie, and I spent a lot of time making sure I found the necessities first and then using any money I had for accessories and wall art to make this new space my own and comfortable.

College is a huge stepping stone in every person’s life. We each face challenges and new experiences that help sculpt us into who we shall become after the diploma is in our hands. It can be an exciting, fun, and at times a little stressful. At the end of the day it’s nice to have a place to have a place (that even though isn’t home) makes you feel almost as comfortable.

With everyone leaving to their dorms and apartments in a few weeks, I thought it might be fun to do a Panache inspired dorm room. With tons of pillows, wall, décor, and frames to put a picture of you and your mom, your dorm is sure to be the cutest on campus………..not that it’s a competition or anything….....….but we all know it really is.

Must Have #1

There are so many people in your life that have made an impact of who you are this very moment. Incorporating picture frames is a great way to remind yourself of the people you care most about.

Must Have #2

I don't know about you girls, but I have a TON of jewelry! Grab a cute jewelry box to keep all your pieces organized and together in your small space. 

Must Have #3

I know you can't have a candle in your room, but diffusers pass the test! These are the perfect worry free way of keeping your room smelling fresh and clean (just make sure your roommate likes the scent too).

Must Have #4

Pieces of art are the best way to bring color to a room without much effort. These pieces above are some of our favorites. They look great sitting on an easel and also can be hung on the wall. (And don't forget bookends for all those wonderful school books you will be collecting.)

Must Have #5

Monograms are the in thing right now, and these custom boards are the perfect way to show yours off! 

Must Have #6

Pillows are always so cheerful! Adding a few throw pillows to your bed is a great way to make your room unique. There are so many patterns, colors, and textures to choose from.

Must Have #7

Last but not least is some type of floral of greenery. Even have a faux piece can bring life and comfort to any space.
