Back to college prep-what’s trending

Time flies when you’re having fun couldn’t be more true, as this Summer is flying by. I hope you are all enjoying the school break and squeezing out the last bit of fun you can this Summer, because it’s almost time to say our goodbyes – to those college kids! My hearts go out to all of the parents as they prepare to send their kids of to their first year of college!

Preparation for college can be frantic and emotional time. There is so much to think about when it comes to necessities, but I’d like to chat about the fun side of college prep – the dorm! I believe in helping to create a space that feels like a home away from home for our special scholars. So, let’s get straight to it –

What is trending? Boho chic, bold prints, classic stripes, and muted palettes to name just a few.

For the girls – boho chic is everywhere, bright or muted tones. Ruching, pintuck and texture! Wall hangings and gold accents.

There are so many fun options out there, but be sure you have durability at the top of your list. Always opt for the machine washable and dryer friendly options. And speaking of lists – you’re going to love Pottery Barn’s downloadable dorm checklist!

Good luck, parents, and happy prepping!
