Ralph Lauren Home is a great place to buy sheet sets for college! They have quite an assortment of extra-long cotton sheet sets which include a matching flat top sheet, a fitted sheet, and a standard pillow case. Get a solid-colored sheet set or go for something more fashionable, like their Malibu Stripe pattern. If you’re going to a school in the North, don’t forget a comforter and a fleece throw to curl up with when the cold weather hits!

Dorm Co is a great store for dorm furnishings like desk lamps. Lighting in college dorm rooms is often dim, so start off prepared: bring a desk lamp! To add some style to your room, consider hanging christmas lights on the walls or placing a lava lamp (only $20 on Amazon!) on the dresser—they look awesome, especially at night!
Containers are essential for every college student, and they can be decorative, too! The Container Store has containers of all different shapes, sizes and colors. Open bins are great for piles of paper, notebooks and sandals; trunks are good for under-bed storage; and drawers are helpful for those looking for extra dresser space!
Add some color to those plain, white walls! Go to artistrising.com to see some of Miriam Schulman’s works—any of which can be turned into a poster sized print that can easily be hung on the wall. These posters will add the perfect finishing touch to your room decor!
