Dorm Room Bedding | Gifts & Care Packages

As youthful and adventurous students, we have all experienced wanderlust at some point in our lives. In order to prepare for your next great journey, we’ve put together a guide to decorating your dorm or room while your wanderlust grows.

Gone West

Just like in decades past, many of us have dreams of pushing west towards the Pacific. And why wouldn’t you? The West Coast is known for a lot of things, one of the most notable is its easy-going, carefree lifestyle—nothing like the rushed and rude East Coast. To help you ease into this state of mind, I recommend hanging this Sunset Pier wall canvas over your bed.There is no better way to take in the beautiful West Coast than driving up and down the Pacific Coast Highway. To get ready for the drive of a lifetime, pick up the Pacific Coast Highway tin sign—it makes for a cool little accessory to hang around your desk and keep you dreaming.Finally, the moment you have been waiting for—Hollywood! While the oldies are never a bad thing, everyone in Hollywood is all about staying fashion forward. Set your room apart with a twist on a classic monument in pop culture with the Hollywood Sign Rainbow art!

New York , New York


If you can never sit still, are always looking to meet new people and never have the same day twice, New York may be calling your name. So how should you decorate your NYC inspired dorm room? Check out some of our favorites below.You may not have realized, but New York City is HUGE! With so many districts, neighborhoods and not to mention landmarks, it can be pretty overwhelming. Familiarize yourself with some of the most notable with this cool and vintage New York City Famous Places Tin Sign. And while we’re talking about famous places, how could you not think about Times Square—check out this print of Times Square from above!While New York can get pretty crazy at times, the people in the city do sleep, believe it or not. To make ease your New York City wanderlust, even while you sleep, wind down with our 42nd Street Pillow. It is without a doubt comfortable, chic and, most importantly, totally New York.Euro Dreamin'


With so many rich and diverse cultures packed on one continent, it is no wonder why so many people are drawn to Europe. Kick off your Europe inspired room with the beautiful landscape of Paris on your wall. This Eiffel Tower wall canvas not only shows off the magnificence of the Eiffel Tower, it will also add a clean and chic look to your barren walls. We don’t want to overdo it on one country because, let’s face it, you want to display your cultured side, not your obsessiveness! HOWEVER, the Paris Mon Amour pillow is too good to pass up.As you travel south into Spain, you’ll notice a bravado and swagger not found in France. The ancient practice of bullfight represents this marriage of ferocity and gracefulness perfectly. This mounted Spain Print will not only bring this marriage into your room, but the splashes of colors will also bring life to your dorm walls.Many people finish their European tours in Italy, wishing to end the adventurous journey surrounded by calm and tranquility. Touring through a canal-filled city on a gondola can certainly have that effect. Until then, decorate your room with this mounted print of the Bridge of Sighs, one of the most peaceful places in Italy.
