College Bound!

August is here! School will be starting soon. For the many students thatare college bound, preparations must now be finalized. Especially for the freshman leaving home for the first time, it’s THE BIG MOVE. Not only are they leaving friends and family, but the familiar environment of their own room. Whether living on or off campus, you want to ensure their comfort and well-being.

One special way to do that is by having custom bedding made for their college room. With the beautiful selection of fabrics on the market today, what better way to personalize your son or daughter’s new home away from home. A bright, cheery comforter or duvet cover along with coordinating pillows will give new life to that tired dorm room. Another option is bedding from Pine Cone Hill, which offers a multitude of fabrics and color options to choose from.

Fresh, new window treatments are also a great way to brighten up the place. Depending on the needs of the student, they may need a heavy-weight curtain or shade for blocking light or sound, a lighter weight curtain to let in sunshine, or maybe just a valance to add a much-needed splash of color.

Space is limited in most college living quarters. A bedside table that includes shelving or additional storage will come in handy. A comfortable desk chair is a must for those long hours spent studying. If the room space permits, additional seating is nice to have for the occasional visitor. A favorite chair from home given new life with Amy Howard paint might be just what the homesick student needs.

A decorative lamp will spruce up the room as well as provide extra lighting for that late night reading. Some colorful wall art will be a nice touch. Tie it all together with a soft, cozy area rug to keep their toes warm on that cold floor.

It may be hard for some to leave the comforting familiarity of home. Being involved in decorating their new spot will help instill confidence and pride in their big accomplishment…they are College Bound!
