You have precious few opportunities to make a dorm feel like home, and uniquely you. There are those white walls, commercial grade carpeting, and a sea of boxy, plain wood furniture. The largest piece of real estate you actually have control over is likely your bed, so make it good with beautiful, comfortable bedding that makes you happy every time you go to sleep— no matter what your budget is.
