Starting a new school year, starting a new college life and going it on your own, you want to have all the fundamentals for your dorm room, but at the same time you want it to be budget-friendly, and you also want your choices to be stylish and singular. Big order. But the offerings at Target are, well, right on target for your wants and needs.
"Starting a new school year, starting a new college life and going it on your own ..."
We love the ensemble from Room Essentials™, there is a cute pinstriped sheet and pillowcase that matches and coordinates with an über cool Reversible Rose Comforter that is sized for your dorm room bed. The pattern is kicky as you will see in the slideshow, but we tested it out for comfort and boy, is it soft as a cloud. Great for your ‘snooze stuff’ as spokesperson for Target, Sabrina Soto, would say. ($16.99-$29.99)
Light and Color
Once the bedding is addressed, look at Target’s cool little Aqua (one of our favorite colors!) wastebasket and lamp. We would choose the Room Essentials® Wired Cage Accent Lamp (includes CFL Bulb) and with the included lampshade because it's a great, happy hue (online price $22.99). And the Room Essentials® Wastebasket in Aqua is actually nice enough to do double duty as an ice cooler. Finally, don’t forget a mirror—you won’t always get quick access to the bathroom and with this handy tabletop version that spins to a magnifier on the other side, you’ll find you use it over and over again.
Tip: Make sure to wash all bedding before using, the dyes come off on all new textiles.
