Buying for College

I've been browsing for college dorm rooms for the girls. The first thing that popped in my head was Pottery Barn Dorm Rooms. Well, who can afford to send their kids off to school and pay for rooms like that? But, it is a great place to look for inspiration! Here's some cute stuff I found.

I love this color palette. It is so fresh and warm. Yum!

I love the wall collection of cord, dry erase, fabric and magnet! I bet I could pull that off for a fraction of the price!

Or perhaps this chalkboard:
Now, this next picture is so cool, but seriously, what dorm room has room for this! But, I had to include it so you could see how cool it is and unrealistic at the same time!

Check out these lights- very cool!

And, I'm a sucker for storage bins. These are really cool!

Alexa is a lover of animal prints and pink. This one is up her alley (I'll have to check Target).

And, I know Mackenzie would love this?
Now, here is the most ridiculous thing I found.

Seriously, you can fit nothing in that and it's twice the price of a dorm frig from Walmart. Really?? I would like to know how many of those they sell and who bought them because that is so silly. They do look cute though. But, cute frig will get you nowhere! 

Now, that's a cute list I made that would cost thousands of dollars. I'm going to see how I can get some of those cute things in our budget! I think I can do it!
Do you know of any cool dorm things? Lead me to the site so I can check them out!

Looks like you have some great ideas. When I was in college I got everything for my dorm from Target or Ikea. Have fun shopping!

Great ideas! My dorm room didn't look anything like any of this! LOL!

Pottery Barn in general is great for dreaming/inspiration! I would definitely keep my eye on Target dorm storage as it is very affordable and cute. However, I wouldn't buy too much (besides maybe the fridge if it's on sale) until you see the room (maybe you already have, though?). There may not be much space...

I like all of those items but as you said...totally unrealistic. I think the storage baxoes could fit though and you can never go wrong with storage boxes! Have fun searching for more dorm inspiration!
