Dorm Décor: Pillows

Because I have decided to dorm my first year of college, I will be starting a segment on my blog called “Dorm Décor” where I share small components of the decorating and organizing planning process for my future abode. As I share about each topic – whether it be about my picks for desk lighting, my favorite storage tips, and even DIY projects – I hope you find inspiration for your small spaces, even if you’re not dorm room-bound.
Pillows have recently been one of my favorite things to look for. They’re an inviting way to add color and a sense of coziness to a room. Some things to keep in mind are texture, size, shape, and number of pillows. I used this pillow guide to add just the right amount of color and texture without risking the overflowing look on the standard dorm bed size: XL Twin. The following arrangements include a Euro Sham (26″ X 26″) and a few other decorative pillows. Here are my favorites:

Jonathan Adler Yellow Lola $38
Tracy Reese Floral Hullabaloo $29.95
PB Teen Lavender Floral $39 (currently on sale for $31-$39)

Caitlin Wilson Navy Souk Trellis $60-$80 (other great patterns available)
Xhilaration Jersey Ruffle $24.99
PB Teen Navy and Pink Monogram $29.50

Anthropologie Gila $58
Plum & Bow Diamond Chenille $24
PB Teen Emily + Meritt Sequin $35.50 (available in other colors)

    Amazing pillows, but look like really only a decor. If you want to have a good pillow, that's better to view memory foam pillow reviews, ratings and comparisons to choose the right one.
