Gold and White Decor for your Dorm Room

Going off to college is an exciting time. You’re figuring out what you want to do with your life. You’re prepping to meet new friends who will eventually become your network.

Oh, and you’re getting ready to decorate your dorm room.

Bed, Bath & Beyond is a go-to resource for college dorm décor and essentials. To celebrate back-to-school season, we’re taking a look at a gold and white decorating theme from this store which will make your dorm room look amazing while still being incredibly functional.

Gold and White Dorm Room Décor

Classic and chic, gold and white are a great color combo. You get an air of sophistication while still incorporating those metallic tones that are so hot this season.

Glam Polka Dot Reversible Comforter Set

We love this comforter set for its style—which is reversible. You can pick to display golden polka dots on a white field or a golden chevron pattern on the same if you flip it over to the other side. One thing to note when you’re buying bedding for a dorm room is that you will want to get Twin XL sizes in everything. Dorm room beds are longer than your traditional beds, but not as wide as a double.

Luxe Hudson Faux Fur Sheepskin Shag Rug/Throw

A lot of dorm rooms have this very un-fun laminate “tile” flooring that’s just plain cold on your feet in the morning. Solve the problem with a throw rug. This faux fur sheepskin rug will keep your feet from freezing while matching your décor in a stylish way.

Door Solutions LED Light-Up Over-the-Door Marquee Mirror

Feel like an old-school Hollywood star every time you put on your makeup or get dressed. This over-the-door mirror removes the problem of having to affix your mirror to a wall without nails, as is so commonly the rule in dorm rooms, and the battery-operated lights ensure that you can actually see what you’re doing regardless of the overhead lighting situation in your new digs.

Architect Desk Lamp with USB Port

Every college student needs a good desk lamp. They come in incredibly handy during those late-night cram sessions when you don’t want to disturb your roommate with the overheads. This one is particularly amazing because it has its own USB port, allowing you to dodge any problems with awkward outlet arrangements.

Umbra Dangle Photo Display Wall Collage

Moving out for the first time is both exhilarating and emotional. Having physical, visual reminders of both is a good way to get through the ups and downs. Use this wall display to feature photos of your current adventures in order to celebrate, and pictures of family and friends back home for those moments when pangs of homesickness hit you.

Umbra Confetti Dots in Brass

Who says dorm rooms can’t have accent walls? We love these confetti dots from Umbra both because they allow you to show off more of your metallic style, but also because of their peel and stick nature. They’re easy to apply, and you shouldn’t have any trouble getting them off the wall when it’s time to move in the Spring.
