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.

Bedside Cubby

The perfect nightstand to fit by your dorm bed. Built narrow to use a minimum of floor space and it's tall enough to work with a semi-lofted bed. Comes with a generous drawer and two deep cubby shelves.

A dorm room desk isn't just for studying and storing books. It often serves as a vanity to do makeup and hair, as well as a catch all for pretty much everything. 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 Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

4028

The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
