Preppy Dorm Showcase: Clare from Prep at the Beach

Today, I wanted to share Clare from Prep at the Beach's dorm room with y'all! Clare attends UNC Wilmington, and her room is full of pink and monograms--two things I adore!

This is an overview of my dorm room. My roommate and I decided not to match everything we had since we have different styles, but she incorporates some pink in her side, and I tried to add some blue into my side in order to pull it all together. 

I chose a simple grey and white striped bedspread for my bed, so that I could add fun throw pillows and blankets without it getting too overwhelming. I added a few pieces of wall art up around my bed to give some character to the blank white walls. 

I am obsessed with monograms, so I had to incorporate as many as I could into my dorm room. Both of my pillowcases are monogrammed and my two throw pillows are, as well. I also have a button "C" canvas art hanging over my bed. 


My desk is organized in a way that I can get as much done there as possible. I only have one picture on the top and the rest is strictly school supplies with a little area for my makeup. 

In a dorm room, it's almost impossible to find storage space for everything, so these cubbies from Target are perfect. I have six boxes in them that store everything from movies to cleaning supplies. I also have my alarm clock, fan, and storage basket with random things in it on top. I absolutely love those storage baskets; they are black with chevron print liners and work perfectly with my room. 
You have to remember that your dorm room is your home, so my roommate and I decided a futon would be useful to have a place for guests to sit. This is a mini futon, which is perfect for smaller areas, and I love the look it adds to my room. 

I love all of the monograms and pink in Clare's room! She's done a fabulous job putting in as much storage as possible, and her room really does feel like a home away from home. Thanks so much for sharing, Clare!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
