Bedding can be one of the décor focal points of a dorm room or bedroom. Have a great night’s sleep by snuggling into affordable and adorable bedding. Consider adding fun faux fur pillows and a Sherpa throw to the bedding for extra color and trendiness as well as added warmth during cooler months.

Colorful wall art is the perfect way to brighten up the space. Bookshelves and desks can be accessorized with succulents and candles to keep your workspace inviting and stylish.
