DSD's Showroom Adventures

Dorm Suite Dorm is no stranger to adventure, and yesterday we had just that! Danielle, one of our designers, and Amberlyn, our Web Manager, went to The University of Alabama to freshen our showroom in Burke Hall. On one bed was a duvet, Euro sham, and Accent pillow in our (now discontinued) Bubblegum fabrics. On the lofted bed was a blue quilt and a Euro sham and King bolster in like fabrics in the Grasshopper color-way.

College Orientation Essentials

You've graduated high school. College is right around the corner. But before college starts, you've got to gear up for ORIENTATION! College orientation is so useful, in more ways than you'd think. Of course, you'll tour the campus (maybe for the second time), get your student ID, choose classes, and fill out tons of paperwork, BUT you'll also make college career-long friends, sign up for classes (great time to ask for advice), and learn which caf foods are fab and which ones to avoid. DSD scoured college orientation pages for the essentials.

PIN OF THE WEEK: Dorm Emergency Kit

Browsing on Pinterest is great for DIY project ideas, quotes, and inspirational anything. Our favorite Pin for this week reminded me of when I moved into college. My grandmother packed an emergency kit for me in a plastic tub and left it for me to find. Of course, I did find it exactly when I needed it most.
