Leaving the nest to live in the dreaded college dorms is a rite of passage, but that doesn’t mean coeds should leave the comforts and coziness of their home behind! Start the school year with a decked-out dorm inspired by this pretty, petite pad by designer, Sandie Tsai. Opt out of a bulky bunk bed and snag a plush, tufted daybed for your twin mattress, instead. Showcase your personality with an oversized, framed abstract print on the walls and use a sleek wire grid to display fun snapshots of friends, family and furbabies. Push the university-provided desk and chair (from 1985) out of sight and treat yo’self to a designer-worthy workspace. Pull all-nighters from the comfort of a cool, cognac leather chair and finish projects at a chic, steamer trunk desk. Top off your study space with a bright, brass task lamp and a black, bound productivity planner. You know, to keep track of your academic (social) calendar. Shop everything you need to design your dream dorm in the links below.
