The Tassel is Worth the Hassle!

In a few short weeks you'll be graduating and we know how hard you've worked for that diploma. Reward yourself with graduation gifts that will take you to college... Dorm decor!

For once someone did your homework for you. LeighDeux has figured out exactly what you need for your dorm room and provided you with a guide to help you prepare.


Guide to a Chic & Unique Dorm

1. Dream Big!

Imagine the end result. What look and feel do you want to achieve? Browse through the website and visualize your dream dorm room.

2. Do the Math
Look on your college housing websites for space dimensions or take your own measurements of the room. Even with the best furniture, it won’t matter if it won't fit!

LeighDeux’s bedding comes in Twin XL that fits perfectly on most standard sized dorm beds.




3. The Base of Your Space

As the heart of the room, treat your bed to an eye-catching duvet that goes perfectly with your theme.

Remember, most dorms do not have headboards, which makes reading in bed a pain. So we’ve totally got your back!  Add a headboard pillow.  Comfort and style in one! It is amust for a dorm bed…or any bed!

Pile on matching pillows and a throw and you are ready to go! Now you can use the bed as the framework for the rest of the decor.


4. Gotta Have it Girl

We’ve created a list for you, but check to see what may already be in your dorm room:

  • Nightstand
  • Lighting (overhead light, decorative lamps, desk light, floor lamps, bedside table lamp)
  • Rug
  • Window Valance/Shades
  • Bed Skirt
  • Sheets
  • Blanket
  • Duvet
  • Floor pillows
  • Throw pillows
  • Extra seating (pouf, cube, futon)
  • Storage (Sack, Cutter Keeper, Bunk Box)

5. Channel your Inner Designer


And finally…the fun part. Decorating! Hang up your favorite artwork or inspirational quote. Add that wall monogram, bulletin board or photo collage you created over the summer. String lights above your bed. Give your room a personal touch.
