  2. Renae,
    I just completed dorm shopping with my son! And...I was telling a friend how it was the complete opposite of what girls dorm shopping would be like.

    I'm certain my post will look worlds away from this, so thanks for some "girly" fun...loved all your choices and ideas!!!

  3. Aren't those top Garnet Hill quilts the cutest! I love them for a dorm or for me! Getting ready to head to school with my daughter to do some decorating - trying to update her room and in her words, "funkify" her Pine Cone Hill bedding!

  4. Hello Renae - I loved your idea of using a shower curtain. I did that once when we lived in San Diego for my daughter Em's room & had forgotten how it works so well. Your brilliant advising to use a spring tension rod as to not leave screw holes. I'm passing this idea on to Em who just moved into her dorm yesterday. I think PB Teen is one of the best sights around. My son Marc was just as picky about his room as any girl. We ended up getting a J.Adler duvet cover & he thought he'd hit the big time. Weird to think as today he's out apt. shopping after landing his first out of college job! Here one of yours is getting married! Hope your day was a great one? xoxo deb

  10. I think I work best in a natural setting, I do love color,but I think if I were off to college - I would want to emulate the artsy side of me.

  11. Very cute ideas for a dorm room! Love the colorful shower curtains and creative hooks, would add a lot of character to a bathroom ;) also love the little coolers and organizers. My favorite color has to be white, it goes great with all other colors! Thanks for sharing!
