Dorm Decor

Whether you're a high school senior or the experienced collegiate, upgrading, changing, and designing your dorm room is always a fun pastime. A company by the name of Dorm Decor in Alabama specializes in refined campus living for all students! As an interior designer and event planner, Alison Gorrie and Kate Phillips both had an entrepreneurial spirit that led to the success of the original product, the Dorm Cubby, and their complete line of dorm accessories.

Cubbies

The Cubby line creates a space for organization as well as a stylish appeal.

Bed Cubby

The Bed Cubby is the ultimate vertical storage unit that every college student needs.

Desk organization is critical to getting ready on time and finding what you need. A Desk Cubby provides vertical storage to help you stay organized while adding high style to your dorm room.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
